Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Tour sizes are kept low on this tour, with no more than eight people, for a more intimate experience.
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.

This was well worth the cost. Our tour guide Danielle was great! She was a wealth of information about Paris, Versailles and Giverny. She was awesome at navigating the horrendous Paris traffic. It was a long day but very worthwhile!

Cecilia did a fine job. We enjoyed Versailles but wished for more time in the gardens of Versailles. The lunch was at a charming location! Loved Giverny especially the water gardens.

Versailles was terrific and Monet’s garden was unbelievable. I feltlike I had stepped directly into an impressionist painting! An extra - unexpected - bonus was the gourmet meal served at the Moulin de Fourges Restaurant surrounded by the besutiful French countryside.

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!

The air conditioning in the van broke down and it was the hottest day in Paris. Drove down the highway with the windows rolled down.

The best part of it was that we did not have to get on any line. The driver was good too. The history and views of versailes were excellent, but there was nothing so spectacular about the Giverny gardens. I would have enjoyed going to the botanical garden.instead. The food was ordinary.

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
