Wonderful day
, Aug 2019
Our guide was very knowledgeable with French history, an excellent driver and good company. He also coped very well when I was not at the correct meeting place at Versailles!!!
Great sites, guide - not so much
, Jun 2019
The sites are beautiful. We had a great lunch at a nearby restaurant that was both yummy and picturesque. The guide - at first we thought, maybe that is just French. The first insult was before we got in the car, telling my daughter how she makes things difficult. There were several more odd comments and we all just looked at one another and went along. He complained constantly. He yelled at cars, walkers and bicyclists. At one point, we stopped at a light, he rolled down his window, yelled at the car next to us, called him an a-hole, and then told us how he is a professional driver. During our walking of Versailles, he bitterly complained about the Chinese, who are admittedly pushy, and yelled at a guy, then told us to "just push them onto the ground and they will keep smiling". No joke. We were very happy to get dropped off and get on to something else.

We only had a few days in Paris, so we decided to do both Giverny and Versailles in one day. We are very happy we had the opportunity to teach our kids about Monet and see his home and gardens. Lunch was at a very picturesque restaurant. They had great Quiche! . Then we headed to Versailles. I think we got what we wanted, learned lots about the history of the era. Our guide was lot of fun. My two boys 13 and 11 enjoyed both experiences. Highly recommend it.
Milan was a wonderful guide...

Milan was a wonderful guide, friendly and helpful. Monet's garden was stunningly beautiful, it was exactly like being in one of his paintings. Our guide for Versailles was Francesca, her passion and enthusiasm made the palace come alive for us. She was also fantastic at making our pictures look like we were the only ones there although the place was actually teeming with other tourists! All 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed the tour!

Fantastic Tour Guide!

Private Full-Day Palace and Park of Versailles Guided Tour | Aug 2019
I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide, Kevin, was knowledgeable and charming. He picked us up at our hotel and we did not have to do anything except enjoy the day! It was truly a skip the line experience. We went right in upon arriving. Kevin explained everything that we saw. Afterwards we went to see the Petit Trianon and walked the grounds. Kevin told us stories and anecdotes and took us to see Marie's grotto. We would never have seen all of these hidden treasures and heard the stories on our own. It was a very enjoyable experience indeed!

Money well spent!

Versailles Full Day Private Guided Tour with Hotel Pickup | Mar 2019
While this is a somewhat costly tour, it exceeded all expectations! Fred was an outstanding tour guide/driver. He met us in a beautiful Mercedes mini-van, on time, at the door of our hotel. During the drive to Versailles we stopped at several locations within the Paris city limits to hear a history of the city. Access to the palace, the gardens, and the Trianons/Hamlet was flawless. Fred was so knowledgeable and made the entire experience come alive with historical context. The experience was tailored to our needs and exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wanted an in-depth experience when vising Versailles.

We just had a private day tour to Giverny and Ois with Vincent, an outstanding guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and very happy to share his knowledge, but also happy to jus sit back and allow us to take things in an enjoy for ourselves when it was appropriate.He also knows a lot of things beyond the usual that will make your day with him more fulfilling than normal.Our favorite thing was the slide show and visit to Van Gogh’s bedroom at the end of the day. Very moving, even all these years later.A highly recommended guide for a great day!

Private Day Tour: Normandy Landing Beaches from Paris | Aug 2018

Anne-Claire Bailly was a wonderful tour guide. She provided us with so much information and history. She worked tirelessly to ensure we saw everything we wanted to and more. It was a long ride to Normandy but the time went by quickly. We stopped to pick up lunch half way there and had a beautiful picnic lunch on the beach. It was a bucket list adventure for my husband and myself and our 6 children left with a profound respect of this historical area.

Private Guided Day Tour of Mont St-Michel from Paris | Aug 2018

This tour was one of the highlights of our holiday in France. Our guide was just amazing, knowledgeable and had a great personality, which is important as it is an over 7 hour return drive from Paris. I would recommend this tour without reservations.
