We had a great day, early September with perfect weather. Our tour guide Francoise was not only very imformative but had a sense of humour as well so made the trip enjoyable. Monet's garden was stunning and Versailles was great and although we were given plenty of free time, it's too big to see all in a few hours, but for most would be more than enough as it gets quite crowded. Lunch was at a quaint village, very picturesque with a set menu, some of us had dietary requirements, which Francoise ensured we were all given a substitute and restaurant was more than happy to accommodate us. However this would be important information that should be added at time of booking. We enjoyed this tour very much and would highly recommend it.
very good trip! My family enjoyed it! Well run and very organized. The tour leader was very knowledgeable. I would have liked a longer time at Verailles to explore the gardens.
This was an easy and comfortable way to see Giverny and Versailles. Monet's gardens are beautiful and Versailles is breathtaking. Our guide was excellent and the information shared about each destination was both educational and charming.
John-louie was the best guide you could get! He was informative, gentle and had a wicked sense of humour. He delivered a great tour for all ages. Long day for young kid but highly recommended.
Could not have been more perfect! Guides were excellent and the day was well organized. Giverny was beautiful, the luncheon in the French country side was perfect, and Versailles, well..... over the top! I highly recommend this tour!
It was wonderful! The morning visit to Giverny was great-less crowds. The lunch stop at the peaceful village by the mill was nice. Food was delicious. Finally on route back to Paris the visit to Versailles was nice. Our guide Alyssia was very informative and knowledgable about art and history. It was worth the full day getaway from Paris. The different route taken to return to Paris vicinity from lunch showed us nice country scenes of the villages outside of Paris.
My daughter and I really enjoyed this bus trip to Giverny and Versailles. Our guide Anne Marie did a wonderful job narrating the tour . The air conditioned bus was very comfortable. Giverny,lunch at the old mill, and Versailles exceeded our expectations. Beautiful late July weather too.
Great way to see both places. Tour Director was very informative.
very nice and informative trip , lunch was provided at very scenic place , Had a nice day out . we had a 2 year baby with us so it got bit boring for him in Versailles
Firstly both the Giverney and Versailles tours were excellent. If you are physically fit, both can be done in one day, however there is not enough time to fit in the musical fountain show at the end of the Versailles tour. The bus was easy to find at the end of the Versailles tour, however I recommend the handing out of little hand drawn maps with road names and landmarks to watch for to find the bus at the end of the Giverney tour. This is because returning to the bus is a different route. The lunch at Moulin des Fourges was very good and we were with a friendly group of people. Thoroughly recommend this tour.
An excellent tour in every way.
On the delightful drive to Giverny, our guide gave us a most enlightening 'lecture' on Impressionism and the life of Monet. The gardens are wonderful and our early arrival timed to beat the crowds.
The Mill garden under the trees luncheon exceeded our expectations and was an added pleasure.
The Chateau Versailles tour was most enlightening and the use of 'Whisperers' an ideal means of communicating information and location amid the tourist throng
Our day trip to Versailles and Giverny was amazing. It was well organised and I would recommend to anybody
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
