What You Can Expect

Versailles and Giverny Day Trip

Giverny, France

Leave Paris for a full-day tour of two of the most popular day trip destinations outside the French capital – Louis XIV's Palace of Versailles and Monet's garden in Giverny.

Begin with a visit to Giverny, where Impressionist master Claude Monet lived from 1883 until his death in 1926. The gardens that surround his former home were the inspiration for many of his most famous scenes, including the water lily pond he captured in the 'Nympheas' series and the gentle arch of the Japanese bridge over that pond. Tour Monet's gardens, as many artists have, and see if you don't leave inspired.

After Giverny, take a midday break for lunch at the Moulin de Fourges, an 18th-century mill on the Epte River outside Giverny that's been transformed into a restaurant and inn. From there, continue your tour to Versailles.

The opulent Palace of Versailles was once the home of King Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette. On a tour of their extravagant apartments, try to imagine daily life for the royal family. Walk through the famous Hall of Mirrors, the Grand Apartments, the Queen's Apartments and more as your guide helps bring history to life for you.

Enjoy some free time to wander through the expansive gardens behind the palace at Versailles before your day trip concludes and you travel back to Paris.

Versailles Fountain Show Special Program:
The fountains in the Versailles gardens are part of a special display set to the music of Louis XIV's era on Saturdays and Sundays from April 2-October 30, on May 5, Tuesdays from May 24-June 28 and July 14. Entry fees to this special program are included in the cost of the day tour.

My wife and I enjoyed the lectures during the tours of both Giverny and Versailles. We also were pleasantly surprised by the lunch location. The lunch was excellent but the location was amazing.

If I had to choose one trip to do again it would be this one. Mostly, because of Giverny. It was delightful. It was something completely different from any other touristic attraction I have ever visited. Those gardens were simply blissful. I could have spent hours there in contemplation.
And the gift store was full of great things!!
Lunch at Moulin de Fourges was delicious. One of the best meals I've had during my visit. 30 more minutes to walk around would have been great.
Versailles was breathtaking. Once again, I wish we had had more time and this is my only complaint, even though I am giving 5 stars to wander around the gardens. Once we came out of the palace to visit the gardens we didn't have much time left. Adding one or two more hours for that purpose would be great.
The tour guides were very knowledgeable and professional. Not very friendly, though.
The bus was good enough and the driver was great.

The highlight of our week in Paris! Seeing Giverney was truly a magical experience, especially because we visited L'orangerie Museum in Paris the day before and saw Monet's giant lily pads. Monet's house was delightful, especially the kitchen. The history that we learned on our Versailles tour was fascinating and greatly enhanced our appreciation of the art and history of France. Highly recommend this excellent tour!

You will not be disappointed. Fantastic tour. Giverny was amazing to see and monet's gardens are beautiful. Versailles is just as imagined wish we had more time but there is no way you can see it all in one day. The Gardens are insanely gorgeous. Lunch was fantastic and very tasty! Its expensive but once you add up the cost of doing all this on your own you realize its worth it. Not to mention lunch is included!!

Fantastic trip! I had wanted to see both venues and originally thought of seeing Giverny via the bike tour - however opted for this excursion instead. Would like to have wandered the gardens of Versailles for a longer period however all was good. No complaints.
Highly recommend. Worth every cent. Lunch at the mill was lovely as well and a great way to continue the relaxed feeling after walking Monet's heavenly gardens.
