Our guide was very knowledgeable with French history, an excellent driver and good company. He also coped very well when I was not at the correct meeting place at Versailles!!!
Great sites, guide - not so much
Kena_G, June 2019
The sites are beautiful. We had a great lunch at a nearby restaurant that was both yummy and picturesque.
The guide - at first we thought, maybe that is just French. The first insult was before we got in the car, telling my daughter how she makes things difficult. There were several more odd comments and we all just looked at one another and went along. He complained constantly. He yelled at cars, walkers and bicyclists. At one point, we stopped at a light, he rolled down his window, yelled at the car next to us, called him an a-hole, and then told us how he is a professional driver. During our walking of Versailles, he bitterly complained about the Chinese, who are admittedly pushy, and yelled at a guy, then told us to "just push them onto the ground and they will keep smiling". No joke. We were very happy to get dropped off and get on to something else.
Response from Host, June 2019
Hell. I am sorry to hear that. My apologies. Our guides they are not supposed to do that. Could you please tell me the date so i know who are we talking about?
We only had a few days in Paris, so...

We only had a few days in Paris, so we decided to do both Giverny and Versailles in one day. We are very happy we had the opportunity to teach our kids about Monet and see his home and gardens. Lunch was at a very picturesque restaurant. They had great Quiche! . Then we headed to Versailles. I think we got what we wanted, learned lots about the history of the era. Our guide was lot of fun. My two boys 13 and 11 enjoyed both experiences. Highly recommend it.
Milan was a wonderful guide...

Milan was a wonderful guide, friendly and helpful. Monet's garden was stunningly beautiful, it was exactly like being in one of his paintings.
Our guide for Versailles was Francesca, her passion and enthusiasm made the palace come alive for us. She was also fantastic at making our pictures look like we were the only ones there although the place was actually teeming with other tourists!
All 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed the tour!
