Giverny tour and lunch was worth the whole trip. Next time will spend a say there
This was the highlight of my Paris vacation. The departure spot was easy to get to via train and the trip was everything it promised. Lunch was at an excellent location and we did not have to wait in lines. The lines to enter Versailles in August were over 2 hours if you were not with a guide. Cannot recommend this trip enough.
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!
This tour was the highlight of our holiday, Travelling by air conditioned bus with 2 charming and friendly tour guides, they made the tour so much fun, giving lots of info whilst touring the palace, we were given a lot of time to walk in the gardens. At Monet's garden we were free to wander around the garden and the house fully enjoying the time spent there. Would fully recommend this tour.
The guide was knowledgeable and the tour was first class all the way!
The bus was centrally located and easy to find. The schedule was fantastic!
Monet Gardens was about an hour ride and beautiful! We toured the house, the pond, the little town and Monets garden.
Their were two guides, one group was in English and one in Spanish.
Lunch at the mill was a beautiful setting, lunch was delicious, wine, water and soda was included.
The palace was a short ride away, the guide walked us thru so we didn't have to wait on the long lines.
It was really crowded but we managed to see it all.
Afterwards we were free to roam the gardens, which were amazing!
A 25 minute ride back to originally bus stop
The day was very relaxing, amazing, and well worth the money!
To be truthful, the Paris taxi system let me down badly on this day so the tour I was meant to be on was turned into two. However, despite not being able to have lunch until late ( which my waistline didn't really object to) visits to both destinations were both interesting and informative. Both venues, especially Giverny, were top class except for the number of other people there!!!!
This tour was fantastic. Everyone was very professional and interesting. I am not a Monet fanatical but seeing his house and gardens was nice- smaller than I would have thought.
Our tour guide was great - very nice guy.
This one day trip is well designed. We visited Giverny garden in the morning, had a great lunch in France countryside hotel, and visited Versailles in the afternoon. But ride is very good. Our tour guides speak great English with good sense of humor. Most importantly, we got to skip 2 hour line of Versailles in a hot humid afternoon.
There were a lot of people visiting. The tour helped us move past the long lines. The tour guide was very knowledgeable on the history. Highly recommend.
We loved the tour. Shame it was so rushed. The guide was very helpful, informative and friendly. Giverny and Versailles had highly inadequate toilet facilities although the lunch ones were better. Wasted a lot of time in toilet queues. The place we stopped for lunch and the meal was absolutely lovely. Monets Garden was wonderful and the Versailles Palace spectacular. Thank you.
Tour guides were wonderful. Giverny was breath taking beautiful. Versailles was incredible with eye popping opulence. The best surprise of this trip was lunch! A quick 5 minute ride to a farm that had a mill converted into a restaurant. Delicious meal, beautiful setting, great service!
