The tour of Monet’s gardens and home. Then we had a delicious lunch at the old mill by the water fall. Following the lunch we drove through the French countryside to Versailles. Our guide was great narrating the history of Versailles and a very pleasant person. Most enjoyable tours! Would highly recommend!

Claude Monet’s house, the lunch in Fourges. Versailles was extremely crowded and weather was warm, so it was tiring. However we enjoyed the history of the Palace

We selected this tour in order to take in the highlights of these two major sights in just one day and it was a very good, convenient option. We were traveling with our 14 year old granddaughter, who loves Monet, and she was enthralled. Our guide, Martine, was very kind, knowledgeable and professional, and her English was quite good.
