My family (group of six) had only one extra day in Paris on our itinerary and yet we wanted to see both Versailles and Monet's Giverny. After doing some research into options we decided that a private tour guide was really the only option to make it work, and after looking into pricing and reviews, we picked Private Tours Paris as they offered exactly what we needed. It was on the pricier side but ended up being totally worth it. I think it worked out to be about 150 euro per person, but that included all the tickets to museums throughout the day and private transportation, private guide, etc. If you can swing it financially, this is the way to see these sites!
Our guide was Christian and he was awesome. He picked us up in an amazing Mercedes van at 8am from our hotel in Paris and took us to Versailles, where he led us on a guided tour of the palace and gardens. He knew his stuff and had great historical background to offer throughout the palace.
For lunch he drove us to Moulin de Fourges near Giverny, where he'd made a reservation for us. We had a great two course lunch and it was about as charming and picturesque a place as I can imagine. After lunch Christian drove us the short distance to Giverny, where we saw the beautiful gardens and home of Claude Monet. After a few hours there he took us back to Paris and we were back in our hotel by around 6pm.
Christian was a delight and took great care of us. All the tickets, reservations, details, etc were taken care of and we didn't have to worry about a thing, other than being ready in the morning when he picked us up. If you're looking for a great private tour of some of the beautiful sites just outside Paris, I highly recommend booking with Private Tours Paris.
