Excellent could not fault, guides were fantastic particularly Pauline. Lunch at the watermill was first class seeing it was included in the price. All four of us could not fault anything about the tour thank you so much we had always wanted to visit these two places and you made it so enjoyable.

Going to Claude Monet's home was one of the reasons for my trip to France. Being in his garden, and seeing the lily pads themselves was something akin to otherworldly. Words just cannot express the beauty and splendor of Giverny. Afterwards we went to lunch at Moulin de Forges. Beware of the cat! I am a cat lover, so I had to feed her. Such a spoiled kitty eating Fish Pate. Versailles was next. From the opulence you can understand why there had to be a revolution. I would suggest going to Versailles again, sans trip - we only had a little bit of time and you need more than 1.5 hours to take in the beauty and sheer luxury that is Versailles. Also, the garden needs special attention. Another reason for a return trip!

Great day! The day was very information, very well organised. Well worth the cost. Plenty of time to see monets garden which was spectacular. Lunch was lovely, and gave us time to meet people from around the world. We fully recommend this tour.

This tour was extremely well organized and very interesting. All we had to do was show up, sit back and let the day unroll. It was an amazing day and the tour guides were excellent. I highly recommend this tour and Viator.

An excellent tour, and considering there were tour buses everywhere on the day we went, our host and hostess did a brilliant job getting us around, and giving us enough free time for photographs. Lunch was brilliant.

I loved our guide! Need I say more? She was a spitfire but she kept us moving and was so informed. I felt I got more than I paid for and would recommend this tour to anyone. Giverny was so beautiful! I really felt I saw part of the French countryside. A lot of history in one tour!

This was the most amazing day! We loved this part of our trip probably the most. Lunch was great, meeting new people from around the world on our tour was so much fun. Doing these two places in one day is a great idea and great way to see the spots.

This was a wonderful day with the tours to Giverny and then Versailles. We were very fortunate to have a very knowledgeable and interesting English speaking French woman as our guide. She gave us so much background information about both locations and told us interesting historical facts throughout the tours. An added treat was a lovely luncheon in a beautiful location. I would recommend this tour highly. It was just excellent.

Lovely lovely day. Our guides we so friendly, the Gardens are such a beautiful welcome after several days in the busy city of Paris. The country side is amazing, the Lunch was wonderful, delicious, and the wine was great as well. Versailles was lovely, although a bit busy and full of people for the afternoon...perhaps like previously suggested, it may be better to reverse the trip, Versailles early in the morning and Giverny in the afternoon...but non the less, a great trip...If you have the time , this is a wonderful day to break up your Paris stay. High recommended.

A wonderful tour. The bus was very comfortable and clean. Our tour guide was excellent. We had plenty of time to explore Monet's house and garden. We stopped for lunch at a very beautiful spot by the river. I am a vegetarian and they catered for my needs. We had a three course meal with wine and coffee. The service was very efficient. After lunch we went to the Palace of Versailles and my only suggestion would be to extend the time people have to explore the gardens. We felt rushed and missed many parts of the gardens and some of the fountains. I would certainly recommend this tour.

Excellent day trip. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and entertaining. I had a very good time at Giverney with plenty of free time. The restaurant was in a beautiful setting, but because I was a vegetarian, they served me nothing but lettuce, which was a huge disappointment. The Versailles trip spent too much time in the palace, in my opinion, and there was not enough free time in the gardens to enjoy. But overall, it was a great tour and I am happy I took it.
