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-Giverny 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 tour, only 6 people in this tour, tour guide picked up us from 3 different hotels, in a 8 passenger comfortable van. He drove while explaining the history of each place, lunch was great, tour guide had tickets to both places purchased ahead of time, it's a 'skip the line tour'. He let us walk explore Versailles garden by ourselves, enough time to take plenty of pictures, walked inside the palace with all of us and explained the rooms, history, decoration. Monet's house and garden was beautiful, got back to Paris hotel about 5:00 pm, well planned and timed tour.

The tour was worth every penny! Joel was a great guide-very informative and patient with us. Highly recommend to anyone interested in seeing these two sites. Lunch was also great.
Joel was very clear with directions especially with meeting point/time;Joel and #39;s height helped us find him among the large cr

This tour was amazing! Versailles is a palace you would expect the sun king to live in. The gardens and grounds were beautiful. Cobblestones tricky to walk on. A nice feature was that we were picked up at our hotel and there were only 8 of us. Bathrooms at Giverny were nasty, otherwise rest good.

The best way to spend a Day in your life. Professional Tour Guide, knowledgeable and careful drivers too. Of course one must see Versailles Palace and Monet and #39;s Garden in Giverny. A must if you have limited time in Paris. Great value.

We are very glad we took this tour, our host from Viator was very knowledgeable and considerate. He made a point of returning us back to our hotel in time for us to catch our train to Amiens. Versailles was beautiful but very busy and our host navigated us through the throng very well. We had a delicious lunch of French cuisine in a beautiful little restaurant near Giverny at a location that was picturesque with a functioning water wheel. Monet's garden was beautiful and brought tears to the eyes. Our host enabled us to get the most out of this experience and we are very happy that we decided on this option, it saved all the trouble of trying to get there ourselves. Everything was taken care of. Thank you Viator, we will travel with you again if the opportunity arises.

We really enjoyed this tour! Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. We also liked the use of the headsets while touring inside Versailles as it helped to hear and stay together as a group. Lunch at the mill was wonderful and the property was beautiful. And finally, Giverny was amazing.
