Absolutely fantastic day, guides where great. Giverny was amazing and Monet's house and gardens beautiful and gives you a real feel for Monet and his amazing works. Versailles was a very good guided tour and the hall of mirrors was incredible!!!!
Apart from the rain this was a fabulous day. Monets garden was outstanding and Versailles magnificent. I would have liked time to explore the gardens but time and rain didn't allow it.
Two wonderful visits, the guide on these trips was first class, she gave great insight into the history and details of these venues.
I thought it would feel like a very long day combining Monet with Versailles but it was great! Did not feel ling. Versailles was quite crowded. Other than that it was great. Lunch at the mill was also wonderful.
good educational tour with clear vivid briefing by guide on palace and moynet historical village
will return for follow up tour of precinct and surrounding areas in Versailles
Perhaps, only minus point ,was the weather and missed visit to palace gardens due to time and weather
Because of rain, as tourists are not aware or prepared, tour company, should allocate umbrellas
The surprise part of the tour was the trip to Giverny, a most delightful addition, with a tasty, generous lunch at a very picturesque spot by a mill. Pure charm. The Versailles part was also worthwhile, with a fine commentary on the palace. Well organized and planned, this was good value for the money and made an enjoyable side trip to our visit to Paris
Excellent tour and even a great lunch included.
Tour guides terrific
This tour was a full day and very enjoyable, there was plenty of time to see what we wanted and Giverny was beautiful. Lunch was 5 star and very relaxing and our tour guide was very good. Versailles is just too much and if you want to see it all you will need a couple of days there, it's over the top. Enjoyable tour.
Great trip, excellent tour guide. Also, tour was not too rushed. Plenty of time to see everything!
The extravagates was mind bending. Know wonder they chopped off their heads.
Giverny (Monet's garden was beautiful, our lunch stop at an old mill was very pleasant and we enjoyed sharing our mealtime (and the plentiful supply of wine) with our fellow tourers. The Palace of Versailles was very crowded but interesting, and our guide was good. The gardens were awesome, although it rained heavily on the day we visited. All in all, a very worthwhile visit.
It was first class and wonderful. The tour guides were amazing and very detailed, kind and patient. Lunch was excellent. Monet's village is a must go. Versailles tour was too short and didn't even have enough time to see the gardens. Definitely worth it.
Totally worth going to Giverny with the Versailles trip. Do not pass up Giverny - I repeat do not pass up Giverny - I have never been before and it was absolutely beautiful - like Monet's paintings come to life. We had unbelieveably good weather so that has a lot to do with how well our trip went but the gardens are absolutely breathtaking - hands down incredibly beautiful on a gorgeous day. The lunch was divine, scenic area, beautiful little restaurant, lovely table conversation - well worth it - our tour guide Joelle was absolutely wonderful and spoke perfect English - she was very very good and very sweet. We had the pleasure of having Chantel on that trip as well (we had Chantel as our guide on the Louvre tour) and loved her. This would be my third time to Versaille. First time on a structured tour. As I was traveling with my 12 year old daughter I wanted to keep everything organized and be sure she got the most out of the trip she could. We accomplished that with this tour. Joelle was wonderful, her english perfect, she battled through the crowded to explain everything through our little head sets - it makes for a great tour when you have someone explaining everything - much better than walking around aimlessly with those other silly headphone sets. My daughter got a lot out of the tour and just loved it as well as the gardens of Versailles. These tours took the stress out of getting in and out of locations during peak and I mean peak travel season. We sailed through the lines. A little pricey but well worth it to enjoy a trip without an ounce of aggravation.
Fantastic experience. The tour guides were very informative, polite , and courteous. The bus ride was excellent. Moulin de Fourges, very picturesque. The tour through Versailles was very busy due to tons of people allowed to enter at the same time. The guides did their best to provide information and navigate through the sea of people. Highly recommended.
We had a great time on this tour. It was a very busy day, but it gave us an opportunity to see two venues we wanted to visit very much and still have a maximum time in the city of Paris. Ideally, it would have been nice to spend more time at Giverny and Versailles, but it was a good compromise.
The trip was excellent with enough time at Giverny and Versailles. Our guide was very good and spoke English well and gave the tour great insights into the people and history of these two iconic sites. Lunch was also very good. The only down side was the crowds at Versailles, but that was not your fault. Thanks.
This tour was really excellent. The luncheon meal was superb.
Excellent tour guide; able to navigate crowded places with ease. Lunch was good and fun too.
Loved the tour Giverny was wonderful I am happy to have visited the gradens.
Lunch was well above the tour lunches I have had previously, have had tour lunches before usually not good.
Versailles was good the crowd and heat made it hard work but these are things you cannot change
My husband and I enjoyed this trip. Really worth the price since you're getting lunch as well. Lunch wasn't impressive but it was decent and substantial. A great supplement to any Paris trip.
Definitely a trip worth going on. It was very well organised and we had a super guide, all four of us agreed that Jean-Louis really helped to make the trip a great success. He was informative, entertaining and very clear about how much time we had to wander around on our own and how to find our way back to the coach. Versailles was packed but he managed to keep us all together and we could always see exactly where he was – no mean feat in the crush of so many groups going around at the same time. Monet’s garden was wonderful even thought we had a shower or two of gentle summer rain, it almost made it more enjoyable and there were trees to shelter under. The two chaps in our party aren’t normally interested in gardens but they loved it too. Versailles was opulent, over the top and a sight not to be missed – it helps you to understand why the ordinary French people resented the excessive riches of their royal family. Be prepared for the crowds, it was very busy and very hot on the day we went. Lunch was fine but not outstanding, however, the venue itself was great and the resident cat was cute. She worked out we were the ones who would feed her and shared our salmon and chicken but when the pudding came out she was nowhere to be seen – obviously knew it was apple pie and not fit for cat consumption. If you have limited time in Paris and want to pack in quite a lot this one day trip is well worth doing and, if you are very lucky, you will have Jean-Louis for your guide, I don’t think we could have had anyone better to take us around.
Fabuulous. Guide was very knowledgable, and it was great to see these two sites in one day.
Very Well Done! This is a perfect example of “You get what you pay for”. Although the double tour was pricey, it was well worth it. The tour was very well organized with courteous and knowledgeable guides. The buses were clean, new and roomy.
Versailles: Although I feel this is an attraction that shouldn’t be missed, I think there could definitely be improvements within the palace itself (not the tour). It was what I’d consider dangerously crowded and very hot inside and I've been to some crowded places! Bathrooms, were in trailers and not adequate to handle the crowd, especially women. Lunch: Lovely, beautiful setting.
Giverny: Magical!!! I loved everything about this place from the house to the gardens and literally felt like I was walking in a Monet painting. An absolute treasure!
A wonderful tour. The guides were knowledgeable and accommodating. They shared interesting information but we also had time to explore on our own. The lunch stop was located in a glorious setting. The food there was o.k. - not great, but o.k. I would have liked a little more time to wander the beautiful grounds of Versailles but other than that, we really enjoyed it.
