Lovely trip. The windmills were picturesque. The village of Volendam and Market were very charming though a bit touristy. Our guide was very helpful and entertaining.
Lunch was terrific
Thanks so much
Early morning arrival in Giverny was perfect. Monet garden is lovely in May. Enjoyed hearty lunch at picturesque rural auberge where we sat at tables for 8 and talked with other tour guests. At Versailles our guide did her best to inform us while moving us through shoulder-to-shoulder crowds.
I may have submitted my review noting the wrong guide. It was Leonora. She was very knowledgable of the history, culture of both the countryside and both landmarks. On a personality scale, she was attentive and caring of our needs and also led us well. She ensured that we were given all of her great information to absorb. Thank you for a lovely trip.
Wonderful experience. Very well organized. Of course you could spend all day, or several days, at both places but if your time is limited this is a very good option. Don't expect too much from lunch. No options, food just ok.
This tour was fantastic. Our tour guides were excellent especially Pauline. A wonderful day. The best day of our entire trip
Comfortable bus, very knowledgeable tour guide, well organized, plus a fine lunch at a lovely site. Very highly recommended!
Wonderful tour with an amazing guide! The juxtaposition of the beauty of nature in monets gardens with the grandeur and history of Versailles was a nice blend. Lunch in the middle was at a beautiful little restaurant which was charming. Highly recommended Tour!
Nice trip for the price. Too many tour groups in Versailles. Would be better if the establishment would allow less people in the building. Have to pay close attention not to lose your group. No reflection on the tour but the ladies bathroom facilities were terribly inadequate. Giverny was wonderful. Much more relaxing.
Tour and tour guide were woundeful, Glad I did it, wish I had time to do more.
BUT FYI BE THERE ON TIME, I was 5 minutes late, Hey I was in a foreign land and had to figure out how to get there, BIG deal 5 minutes, Well I almost missed the bus,
The bus had actually pulled out, and was making a U Turn and the tour group desk people ran me onto the bus. (Thanks God) Glad I didnt miss this tour.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day trip out of Paris to Giverny and Versailles, it was a great day. Out guide did an exceptional job. We were concerned that the day would be rushed, but there was plenty of time to enjoy both. We had a delightful French lunch at an old mill in a beautiful setting. We were very pleased with Viator. We definitely would use them again.
Best part of my entire trip to Paris! Giverny was beautiful and one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life! Lunch was just perfect. Versailles was crowded but interesting and very beautiful. Learned some history from a passionate and loving guide who really allowed us to set the pace for our tour. For example we spent a little less time at Versailles because our group loved Giverny so much and we all decided to have a coffee break during the tour which was no problem at all. Met some wonderful people and had the best day! Highly recommend this tour.
This was one of the best experiences of my life! Loved the personal nature of the tour and our informative and friendly tour guide-my apologies as I cannot remember her name- was fantastic, with an excellent knowledge of all. Lunch was brilliant and the highlight for me was visiting Monet's residence. Thank you, I will recommend to my family and friends.
It was a very pleasent day. The 3 guides each spoke a different language to accomadate those on the tour. They provided many interesting facts and the ride through the country side was beautiful.
We are very happy that we took this tour. Monet's gardens at Giverny are breathtaking and one of the must see marvels of Paris. The lunch at the mill house was the best meal we had in Paris and beautifully presented. The house and restaurant are in a stunning setting. Versailles is impossibly busy and so difficult to appreciate in the milling crowds, but we were glad to have the opportunity to be there. I would like to go again when the gardens are in bloom just for the garden tour. An early morning tour before the crowds arrive would be worth getting up for.
It was a wonderful contrast to visit the beautiful gardens of Monet and then see the artificial splendor of Versailles. The Giverny gardens and house were wonderful - self guided so we could go at our own pace. The guide shared a little history which was very helpful. Riding through the French countryside was beautiful, and we had a lovely luncheon on the way. Versailles is magnificent, but rather cold and sad compared to the natural beauty of Giverny. All very worthwhile; so privileged to see it all.
