Think of France and what comes to mind? Chances are the Palace of Versailles and the Impressionists are up there in your top ten. However fleeting your visit, you do have time to experience a bit of both, thanks to our day trip from Paris. Ever wanted to step into one of Monet’s paintings? Your wish is our command! Wander through the lush gardens of the artist’s residence, inspiration for his Nympheas, among others. After lunch, head to Versailles, royal pad to three King Louis. From the moment you approach this imposing Palace, we dare you not to gasp at its lavish splendor. In fact, you’ll probably keep your mouth open for the rest of your visit!

Delicious meal, nice accommodations and very helpful and friendly service. Enjoyed meeting fellow passengers in a relaxed atmosphere.

I would have given a five rating for this tour but the tour guide was not the best. The itinerary, the bus and the lunch were excellent. Sadly, we paid for a guided tour but could not hear the guide. Her Vox box did not work and of the 12 people on the tour, she only spoke loud enough for the two people directly in front of her to hear.

The morning started at Monet's House and Water Garden in Giverny before a light lunch with wines (red/white) and Kir on the way to Versailles. The meal was okay, but not a highlight of the trip. The afternoon was spent at Versailles with a bit of time to explore the gardens independently. Guide Julien was good and provided a good overview of what we were going to see and experience. Dropped off around 6pm. Pick-up/drop-off location is very close to the Eiffel Tower.

Our guide did a great job getting us to Giverny before the crowds. Versailles was overcrowded as expected and she did a great up job getting us through the mess with some great commentary. Lunch at the old mill hotel was lovely, but a bit too long. I think folks would have enjoyed more time at either G or V than sitting at lunch.

Our guide, Amelia (Emilia?) was fantastic. Efficient, full of knowledge, and did her best to make sure we saw everything! The tour was part guided (Monet gardens and inside Versailles palace as well as lots of info while on the bus) then we had free time to explore Monet’s house, more of his gardens, and the Versailles gardens. Highly recommend!
