The whole trip was wonderful. Our guide explained everything from the ride over to Giverny and on the way to our lunch area and back on the bus to Versailles. She did a wonderful job. I am sorry I did not get her name. The bus ride was very comfortable.
Everything was a described. We had enough time at each location (even at this time of the year Versailles was crowded) and the lunch was delicious. They are definitely punctual, so don’t lose track of time! We’ll do it again.
Amazing! Great tour guides and the lunch was fantastic at a very quaint mill. Loved the entire experience!
I felt we spent too much time at Monet’s House and not enough time at Versailles. Our guide was hard to understand and people got lost. She didn’t keep the group together. The lunch was great. I only wish we had a different guide.
This was an absolutely wonderful tour from the gardens of Monet to the extravagant Palace of Versailles. The 3 course lunch, including wine, was delicious and in a country setting. It was so nice and relaxing to have someone else do the driving and handle the days itinerary. Highly recommend
What an amazing day!! The morning at Monet's Mansion and Gardens, lunch at an old mill restaurant under the trees, next to a beautiful river, and then the afternoon at the Palace of Versailles!!! This is a 'not-to-be-missed' tour!! Worth every penny and I would go on it again if I were to go back to Paris! Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and made our day extraordinarily special by being able to answer any questions we posed!! My daughter and I had many "wow, we're here!!" moments that day!! Go on this tour!! You're missing out if you don't!!
This tour was wonderful. Words cannot describe the beauty that is Giverny. This tour is extremely well organized, the hosts were wonderful, and the lunch included was ah-mazing! I had initially considered venturing to Versailles on my own and spending the entire day, but I am very happy I chose to do this tour instead. It's so well organized that you can just sit back and enjoy everything you're going to see on the tour. I really love Monet's work, so I found this tour was a perfect was to spend a day while visiting Paris. I was initially hesitant to book this tour because of the price, but after the experience I am so happy I booked it.
What a great day! The staff was lovely, bus was comfortable, easy to find. I wish we had a bit more time at Versailles and that we didn't have to wait to enter as there was confusion at the entrance. It got way more crowded within those 20 minutes. Lucnh was at an adorable location near Giverny and had vegetarian meals which was great. Definitely recommend.
Loved Monet’s Gardens. Could of spent more time there. Did not enjoy the visit to the Palace. Loved the outside and but so many tours going on inside could not enjoy the walk through the inside.
I felt like a kindergartner. The guide kept repeating herself about how it was so important to be back at the bus at the designated times and about some other things. I wanted to get off the tour. She didn't add anything to the palace of Versailles that wasn't already known and only spent about 20 minutes in the gardens which was self directed. Thankfully I had listened to Rick Steves before visiting. So disappointed that I spent the money for this tour. However I am thankful that I did get to see Versailles and Monets Gardens
Think of France and what comes to mind? Chances are the Palace of Versailles and the Impressionists are up there in your top ten. However fleeting your visit, you do have time to experience a bit of both, thanks to our day trip from Paris. Ever wanted to step into one of Monet’s paintings? Your wish is our command! Wander through the lush gardens of the artist’s residence, inspiration for his Nympheas, among others. After lunch, head to Versailles, royal pad to three King Louis. From the moment you approach this imposing Palace, we dare you not to gasp at its lavish splendor. In fact, you’ll probably keep your mouth open for the rest of your visit!
