This is also a great day trip from Paris. The morning visit to Giverney is wonderful and after the commentaries, you have free time to visit the home and gardens of Monet at your leisure. Lunch at the old mill on the Apte River is delightful, especially if you have wonderful companions at your table, as we enjoyed.
The afternoon visit to Versailles is very interesting. It certainly causes one to reflect on the contrast of the incredible opulence of the palace as opposed to the grinding poverty of the general population.
Very pleasurable coach trip through the Normandy countryside to Giverny. Monet's Garden was everything that my wife and I expected and more. A real highlight. The restaurant was fantastic with its waterwheel, the food was great and the setting scenic. Versailles topped off the day. All in all my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the day and rated the experience one of the highlights of our overseas trip.
This was a most interesting tour! The beauty of Giverny and Monet's home combined with a great lunch experience and the visit to Versailles all combined for a great day!
Second time I have done this tour. Both wonderful to see again. Our guide was excellent particularly through the Palace of Versailles with her commentary and personal insights. As would be expected, many other tourists. A personal visit for a longer period of time would be needed to do the place justice in particular the gardens. Lunch venue and menu were outstanding in the picturesque location.
This was without question the highlight of our holiday in france .... Beautiful countryside masses of History especially at Giverny and Monets home ... Tour then took us to a magical spot for lunch that was straight out of a story book then it was off to Versaille to be gobsmacked at the sheer scale of the famous palace and it's beautiful gardens ... Don't you dare miss out on this tour you'll kick yourself if you don't add it to your bucket list .....
Finding the central site to board the train was a bit of a challenge....Otherwise, the bus was so comfortable as we drove to Giverny...and thoroughly enjoyed Monet's home/garden! The lunch venue was so picturesque and the table wine put us all in a festive mood...Versailles was amazing and my only gripe is that it was unclear where we were to find the bus...getting ourselves a bit lost on the grounds...but we still made it back in time. A true adventure, all in all.
This trip wAs excellent. Well worth the money. The reception on the devises at Vairsaille were not the best. We kept getting intercepted with a Spanish tour guide. Our guide was very helpful through the whole tour.
OMG loved every second of this, bar the crowds at Versailles but that's to be expected, Giverny was beautiful!
Very well organised and reliable. Tour guides were experienced and informative. Bus was very comfortable.
Absolutely beautiful. Monet's garden was divine, and Versailles was gorgeous. The bus trip was comfortable and the tour company wonderful. Long day but well worth it.
Giverny tour and lunch was worth the whole trip. Next time will spend a say there
Wonderful day - will never forget giverny monets home.Fantastic lunch too with great company and marvellous service
This is a perfect way to see both of these terrific sites if the time you have available is limited.
It was a pleasant drive on a coach out to Giverny, complete with commentary from a knowledgeable guide. Then with our reasonably early arrival we beat the crowds and were able to tour the home immediately upon arrival. We then had plenty of time to tour the gardens, take photographs, visit the gift shop and still make it back to the bus on time for departure.
We went from Giverny to a lovely old mill to eat a very nice lunch, and spend some time with our fellow tour participants. Leave yourself some time after lunch to take a few pictures here too - it's lovely!
Following lunch we were back on the bus for some preparatory history related to Versailles as we drove to that location. Walking past the long, long lineups to get into the Palace, we were given headsets so that we could easily hear our tour guide during our walk through the Palace. Following the tour of the inside of the Palace we were again given ample time to wander around the Palace some more or visit the Gardens and the gift shop.
We were back in Paris in good time and really enjoyed our day. This is a really worthwhile tour, particularly for people who don't have extra days in their visit but don't want to miss a thing!
