Michelle was the most amazing tour guide. Her knowledge is remarkable. She was kind and helpful. I would recommend a tour with her to everyone I know.
Worth every penny

1. Lovely drive out to Giverny and Versailles. Very scenic and picturesque. 2. We had enough time to wander the grounds at Monet’s house, and the town. 3. The meal at Moulin de Fourges was amazing. Beautiful plating, great wine, and they made chicken and potatoes look completely new and amazing. 4. Great tour of the palace at Versailles (even in a massive crowd) and just enough time to shop and enjoy the gardens. Isabel was a lovely guide and it was fun listening to her talk about Paris, Monet and Marie Antoinette. The next time I come to Paris I will make sure to book tours with this company again.
Loved it

Tour of Giverny and Versailles

Wonderful tour! Yvonne, the driver and tour guide, was personable and knowledgeable. Very good English speaker. Great idea to pair these two venues of Monet's lovely home and gardens in Giverny and the fabulous palace and gardens of Versailles. Lunch in between at the charming restaurant on the river was a treat.
Great experience!

Tour guide was great! Everything went smooth and easy. You don't really get much time in the gardens at Versailles. That was the only downside.
Rosanne was an incredible and knowledgeable guide
, Oct 2019
We enjoyed our tour. Roseanne drove us in a very comfortable VW van and lunch was good. Our only complaint is that there is no guided tour at giverny, which is what we expected. The tour at Versailles was wonderful and we learned a great deal about French history. The weather in October was a bit dreary, definitely suggest September instead.
Wonderful full day tours of both sites.
, Oct 2019
A full day at both spots. Tour guide was exceptional. Both tours were informative and done with knowledgeable info of Monet’s home and Versailles’ history. Both of us enjoyed the tour of the two sites.
Fantastic time
, Oct 2019
With only 6 people in the group it gave everyone time to ask lots of questions. Isabel was a wonderful driver and guide for the day. The lunch was very good as well.
Great trip out, tour guide was awesome
, Oct 2019
Our tour guide Isabelle was super nice and knowledgeable about the sites and also about Paris. Great tour led through Versailles, you were on your own at Giverny. Our group only had 4 people so it was very convenient. Would recommend even for just the transportation to Giverny and Versailles!
A Good Trip

My husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary in Europe and booked this day trip. Giverny and Versailles are beautiful. Our tour guide Rosanne was great. She is very knowledgeable. She was very in tune with the needs of our small group and some of the limitations one of the guests had. Booking the trip online was easy. The instructions on where and when to meet were clear and easy. Our only suggestion is skipping lunch at the restaurant (it was wonderful) and spending more time at Versailles in the gardens. Maybe grabbing something on the go instead of taking the hour or so to eat. We will definitely book through Viator again.
