We visited Monet house,no guided tour was available. After an allotted time, we left and had a lovely lunch. When we arrived to Versailles, there were many many people lined up to go inside. The skip the line was wonderful but inside it was wall to wall people!! This was in August. I specifically wanted a guide to hear interesting information about the palace. Our guide walked so quickly the people at the end of the group could not hear what was being said. It would have been better to rent portable recordings. I was actually in rooms that we didn't have any idea of the rooms use. I felt our guide could have shared more information but I felt we were rushed through. I thought this tour also included a guide for the gardens. It would have been wonderful to hear specific informaton about the beautiful gardens. I had no idea they were so large! You cannot see entire gardens from the palace windows. We chose to visit on Sunday. Period music was coordinated with "dancing fountains"......beautiful. Next time I vote to see the gardens only.
The gardens st Giverny were beautiful. Not too crowded although so you could get a lot of pictures. You don't get any time to walk around Giverny but we didn't mind. The house and grounds are worth seeing. Our lunch stop was at an old mill. The food and wine were excellent. A very beautiful setting. Versailles is huge and our guide explained what we would be seeing ahead of time. She did a wonderful job of providing history and insight into royal life. Because we did not have to wait in a line to get in we had extra time to explore the grounds.
This is the BEST tour ever! Everyone really needs to take THIS tour. Our tour guide was exceptional! We made great friends over lunch.... I want to take this tour AGAIN!!!!!!!
Very nice tour. Our guide far beyond our expectation. The venue for lunch very nice but not quite nice the particular salón where we had lunch.
This trip is overpriced, the only nice part is that if you are short on time you do get to see a lot in 1 day. They could definitely add 1-2 hours on to the trip so you didn't feel as rushed throughout your visit. We were at Versailles for less than 2 hours so very disappointed. This is the best way to get to Giverny and the lunch was the best part. Our tour guide was horrible! He barely spoke any English for an English tour. He provided little to no facts about anything except for anecdotes that you could pick up from watching Marie Antoinette. I learned more about Versailles by reading the little brochure than him talking for 1 hour about nonsense. I also always find very rude that they ask for tips when this tour is already way overpriced. Go for Monet and the lunch (no vegetarians) but don't be surprised if you barely see anything at Versailles.
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.
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
Amazing! Great tour guides and the lunch was fantastic at a very quaint mill. Loved the entire experience!
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.
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.
