This is just what we had hoped for. Our guide Fabricio put us at ease immediately and took great care of us. He expertly guided us through Monet's house and gardens and then to the church in Giverny where Monet and his family are buried. After a lovely lunch at a creperie on the Seine in nearby Vernon, he toured us through the palace and gardens at Versailles. He knew exactly where to take to us and at just the right times, working us around the large groups and explaining the history to us all the while. Other groups were definitely jealous of our private tour! He was a careful and courteous driver in a super comfortable Mercedes. Fabricio was also so patient with us. He translated everything on the lunch menu for us and then explained all of it. He was absolutely wonderful. We highly recommend this tour and our guide!

Frederic was just terrific. He picked us up at our hotel right on time and was a good driver and an excellent tour guide -- he regaled us with the history of the life of Claude Monet on the way to Giverny, and when we got to Versailles he escorted us through the palace and explained what we were seeing in a very interesting way. We felt very fortunate to have had such a knowledgeable and pleasant guide.
