What You Can Expect

Giverny and Versailles Small Group Day Trip from Paris

Giverny and Versailles Small Group Day Trip from Paris

Depart from your central Paris hotel and head first for Giverny, where Monet once lived. Wander through the exquisite gardens—the water lily garden is the most famous, appearing in so many of Monet’s paintings—and tour the great artist’s former home.

The next stop is the Musée des Impressionnismes not far from Monet’s house. The museum features an extensive Impressionist collection as well as some temporary exhibits. Stop for lunch at the charming Moulin de Fourges restaurant (included).

Continue your tour to the famous Palace of Versailles. Inside, see the suite where Louis XIV lived, the much-photographed Hall of Mirrors and the apartment of the Dauphin and Dauphine. Outside, explore the expansive gardens and watch the water dancing in the impressive fountains.

Versailles Fountain Show Special Program:
Note that Saturdays and Sundays from April to October and Tuesdays from mid-May through June the fountain displays are set to music to spectacular effect. The music used in the show dates from the time of Louis XIV’s court. Entry fees to see the show are included in the cost of this tour.

Great way to see Versailles and Monet's home all in one day! Loved getting picked up at our hotel, loved the small group we were with amd our guide. Made my lifeling goal of walking in Monet's steps a reality, true perfection! Great lunch at a quaint location was a nice mid-day break as well, I highly recommend this trip!

I really enjoyed this visit. It was fantastic. We were only four in the group and the others were so nice. Our driver-guide, Nicolai was very knowledgeable, courteous and kept asking us whether we have any questions. Versailles was lovely, but hot and crowded. Our tickets allowed us to skip the line easily. Our lunch was fantastic. Afterwards we went to Giverny, to Monet's house, it's beautiful, so well kept. The gardens are breathtaking. I highly recommend

Versailles is so over the top in size, grandeur and excess that it's worth seeing. Giverny is a beautiful little town in the countryside, was home of and dedicated to Claude Monet. What a great respite from the big city, and lunch nearby was A+. Our guide was outstanding, and took us back into Paris via the Champs Elysee (which was probably a bit out of his way, but a very nice bonus!). Primo day trip!

Pamela was an excellent and charming tour guide and a a good driver. I would highly recommend a small tour as its much nicer and easier to follow the guide. Skipping the line makes a big difference and the queues in both places are very long if you don't have this option.

The visit to Versailles was OK, there were soo many chinese tourists when we visited thus it was a bit hard to navigate the rooms comfortably, but a walk in the gardens was relaxing. The best part of this tour was the trip to Giverny, the lunch was great and the restaurant were we ate was very nice and cozy. We were just a group of 5pax thus it was easy for our tour guide Stephanie to assemble us and she was able to give us a more comprehensive intro about the palace, monet's garden and other things we saw along the way. We were lucky we were still able to visit Monet's garden as it was the last it was opened for the year, his garden and house was simply amazing, the flowers were glorious. Glad we booked this tour.

Cristof of Paris City Vision was an excellent driver and guide. We went to Versailles first and even though we arrived in the AM, the lines were so very long. This tour includes skip the line admission, so we were able to sail right by the crowds and enter the chateau in fairly short order. The included lunch is at a lovely spot along a stream and the food and wine were quite tasty. Monets home and gardens in Giverny are not to be missed and Cristof made the entire adventure fun and informative. We had a great time and highly recommend this tour.
