    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the meeting point, close to the Eiffel Tower, to meet your guide and small group of up to 18 people in time for an 8:30am departure time. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned minibus, relax on the around 1-hour journey to Giverny.

    Start by visiting the former home of Claude Monet and learn more about the Impressionist master as you stroll the beautiful gardens, known for their pretty flowerbeds, lily ponds, and Japanese-style bridge. Next, stop for lunch (included) at the Moulin de Fourges restaurant, set on the banks of the Epte River, before continuing to Versailles.

    Spend the afternoon exploring the magnificent Versailles Palace, starting with a guided tour of rooms such as Louis XIV’s suite and the Hall of Mirrors. Then, stroll around the beautiful gardens, and watch the famous Musical Fountain Show (every weekend from April to October).

    Finally, return to Paris, where your tour ends back at the original departure point around 5:30pm.

    We loved this tour - Versailles was as advertised: Grand, historic and beautiful. Giverny was beyond our expectations: the gardens were breathtaking and the home was lovely. In between, we had a very enjoyable lunch at a very pretty spot near a chateau in the Normandy

    We booked this small tour for our family of 4 adults. The group total ended up being 7 which was perfect. Julian was our tour guide. He was knowledgeable about both venues. He spoke great English. It seemed like we got more time at each venue because of the smaller groups.
