Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Versailles and Giverny Day Trip. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Giverny was one of the high points of our entire trip. The gardens are incredibly lush (and the pond incredibly noisy with frogs - unexpected), the house is well maintained. The tour seemed to expect we didn't need much explanation, which is probably justified. Absolutely stunning.
Versailles was nightmarishly crowded, but I think this was just a matter of timing; others with previous experience said they'd never seen it so crowded. It was impossible to pay attention to anything other than keeping one's balance, until we got to the gardens. Not Viator's fault, obviously!
In between, a stop for lunch at a nice spot in the country, which does a remarkably good job of servicing 100-200 people a day (waiter's estimate).
The tour was efficient, the double-decker bus comfortable, the driver expertly skilled, the guides pleasant and informative without being overly directive. I recommend this trip without hesitation; just try to time it to avoid such an intense crowd. Unless you are a sardine.
Everything was was just great,Especially the lunch. I wish there was some way to spend more time in the gardens in Giverny. More time in the Gardens would make the trip perfect.
Even though the weather was challenging we had a wonderful day at Monet's house and garden and palace of Versailles. The guide was informative and delightful. Thank you Viator!
Fantastic day tour. Possibly could've had more free time at the Versailles gardens.
Great trip and our tour guide was excellent. Loved seeing the gardens and touring Monet's home
Knowledgable tourguide. Loved Giverny and think it is a must see. Very convenient tour. We thought about doing it all on our own, but are so gald we did it with the tour.
Giverny is truly heaven on earth. Lunch at nearby Le Moulin de Fourges was pleasant in a very charming atmosphere. Versailles was too crowded and felt like cattle being moved from room to room. And for that reason, watch out for pick-pockets. Keep your bags closed at Versailles. Our guide was great!
This is worth it just for Monet's Garden in Giverny....plus you get a terrific lunch at a beautiful Watermill....but you get the bonus of Versailles and Louis X1V magnificent Palace and gardens as well!!!
It was a wonderful day! Our Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, and was patient enough to allow me to practice some of my French :-) We especially enjoyed the delicious lunch at a quaint country village restaurant. I would recommend this to everyone!
Chantelle was a very good tour guide. She was very knowledgable and informative. The tour through Versailles was very good, Chantelle ensured that she pointed out all the features in the palace. Giverny was beautiful. Thank you.
I was skeptical because this was my first experience with ViatoR which proved to be completely unwarranted. The unexpected benefit was riding through the beautiful countryside to get to Monet's house. The restaurant itself is very picturesque. The lunch was tasty but the dining room was a little cramped. Versailles was the highlight of the entire Parisian experience. I would recommend this tour. The guides were very knowledgeable and I would definitely use Viator again.
Our guide was excellent. Lunch was such a pleasurable experience. With limited time, your tours are definitely the way to go.
very well organised; good tour guide very knowledgeable; ample time for lunch; didn't feel rushed; on the whole very enjoyable trip
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.
