Enjoyable tour

Giverny and house were beautiful and interesting. Lunch at Moulin de Fourges was outstanding. Versailles was terribly crowded and audio tour members seemed like second-class citizens at times.
Go on your own! Don’t use a coach bus

Our coach bus broken down which led to us skipping Giverny completely. We didn’t get to Versailles until 4pm and only spent 1.5hrs there. I’d recommend traveling to Versailles and Giverny using public transportation from Paris. It would be much more relaxing that way.
Monet and palace

Being solo was hard and guide didn’t attempt to befriend anyone. 2 your groups on one bus was confusing. Bus air conditioning didn’t work. Bus left us and was late returning causing some anxiety to many. Tour guide was knowledgeable but we could not hear nor understand her. Lunch in the sun and was too heavy for the trip. Lots of wine! The walk to the palace at Versailles was hard for any older guests ( not smooth and distance). Should have been a total day to see everything. I was glad I went.
Giverny & Versailles

Our guid le was so amazing. She made sure we were all back on point! She also was very knowledgeable. I’d highly recommend this tour and I would actually go again. An absolute don’t miss!!

My daughter and I sent to France to celebrate my 60th. It was amazing. I booked this excursion for the two of us, and it was fantastic. The tour of Giverny Monet's Gardens was out of this world. I most certainly will be returning to spend the whole day at Giverny. It is so beautiful, it is beyond words. The luncheon was fantastic, we had a reservation at a small out of the way restaurant which was so pretty. The food and wine were excellent. While Versailles was beautiful, I could have spend more time in Giverny, and skipped palace. The architecture was beautiful, but super busy. I would most definitely recommend this trip to anyone, if asked.
A fabulous day - really well looked after!

Had a terrific day with Victor our wonderful tour host yesterday (thanks Victor!). He really looked after us and showed us a great time at both locations. Comfy bus ride and divine lunch location. I highly recommend this tour.
This is a good tour if you're in...

This is a good tour if you're in Paris just a few days and wanted to make the most of your trip. Giverny is a must-see and we had the whole morning to visit Monet's beautiful home and gardens. Lunch was at the picturesque Le Moulin de Fourges restaurant nearby. Food was simple and delicious. Versailles Palace is gorgeous but felt very rushed as we had only 2 hours to explore the Palace and grounds. There are a couple of things I misinterpreted from the tour overview: 1 All Day Audio Guided does not mean tour guide is provided. Transportation was provided and we were given an audio recording to follow along while we visited the sites on our own. 2 The overview says we will have time to wander through the gardens in Versailles, but total tour price paid does not include the additional ticket fee for the gardens. I looked through the whole overview and Important Info and nowhere was this mentioned. Overall, I would recommend seeing each site on separate days so there is more time to explore.
Giverny was beautiful! The lunch...
Melinda_M, Apr 2018
Giverny was beautiful! The lunch and the location of the lunch was really nice as well. The food was good and you get enough to hold you over. We would recommend leaving yourself some time to check out the town near Giverny and walk to the Church nearby. You definitely need to walk fast. We wish we had just a little more time in Giverny to enjoy the town area a little longer. Versailles was nice but wasn't the highlight of my trip. We actually thought Versailles was overrated. It was probably our least favorite tourist attraction because there were so many people that you can barely enjoy it. You felt like sardines walking through the building. Also, our tour guide was running late and we had to run in order to get in. We walked really fast through the building and we barely got to enjoy it because the amount of tourists there. You definitely need more time in both places to truly enjoy this tour.
