Beautiful to see the castle which is opulent, of course and so impressed with Monet's house and gardens!
This was an excellent tour and we had a great day. Great overview of both places and a wonderful lunch stop.
A great way to see a lot in a short amount of time and to relax doing it. Tour guides were very well informed and
very social. Had a wonderful day.
I have yet to have a bad experience with a Viator tour. Always on time, well educated guides, 110% effort always, and destinations are well chosen, organized and not too rushed.
Giverny is absolutely breathtaking. I could have spent more time there. The place we had lunch was quite charming and the food delicious. Would go there for dinner. The area is really nice. Versailles was the definition of opulence. Its hard to wrap your head around it all. The tour guide was excellent.
Awesome trip seeing Monet’s house, then seeing the beautiful palace and grounds.
The portion of the trip to Giverny to see Monet's gardens and studio/house was magnificent. There were so many beautiful flowers in bloom in early September and many beautiful garden settings. Seeing Monet's studio and his perspective of the gardens was enlightening. The lunch stop at a little inn was terrific and provided some time to interact with fellow participants. Versailles portion was just the right amount of exposure and time to provide a taste of the magnificence of the palace. The gardens alone would take 3 days to see in their entirety. The day was jam packed but not particularly rushed. It was a well spent day of touring.
Versailles: This was a very crowded place the day we were there. We actually enjoyed the gardens more than the inside of Versailles because inside was just a crush of people. Versailles was beautiful though, no doubt about that. It would have been much nicer without all the humans. :
Giverny Day Trip: Fan-tas-tic! That's it, just fantastic. The gardens, the lilypads, more gardens, the house - just could not have been better. There were so many beautiful things to photograph, I'm surprised my camera didn't just explode. The house is colorful, but then he was a painter so no big surprise there, and then you walk into his studio and there are painting you've seen all your life just hanging all over the walls. Again, you feel like you've just walked into a friend's house and there are all the things they've been working on. No guards, just paintings. It takes your breath away. If you go to France and you miss this tour, you need to go back!
Easy travel, plenty of time, great for our small family group and lunch was really delicious.
We went to Giverny first and small the beautiful gardens that Manet painted. Part of the gardens had more traditional flowers and on the other side were the ponds and lilies. House was an interesting combination of colors. We then moved on to Versailles and went through the main rooms. Then onto the gardens. We had seen Versailles before and wanted to go again, mainly to see the gardens as the fountains were on. This was a very easy day. a fair amount of walking but much of it at your own pace. Lunch was at a charming restaurant on the way. Great photo opportunities along the way.
Great trip--very well organized. Tour guide excellent. Stop for included lunch was beautiful. Highly recommend.
