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.
If you've ever thought you'd like to see Monet's Garden, GO! It was so much more than I could have ever imagined! We toured London, Paris, and Rome; Giverny was the highlight for me. Lunch at the Inn was nice, although I would have sacrificed it for either more time in Monet's Garden or more time at Versailles.
Very nice tour! Giverny gorgeous. Versailles very nice but crowded. Tour guides VERY knowledgeable, friendly, and make tour special. Highly recommended,
Visiting Giverny was so beautiful. Finding the exit out was rather confusing.
Lunch was excellent..paired with wine.
Versailles was way too crowded and too stuffy when Inside. Not enough ventilation. Air Con should be turned on.
Tour was rated expensive..in US $$!!
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!!!
