The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The Monet House is interesting but the gardens were magnificent. Versailles, as expected was very crowded, but the gardens were beautiful. Would recommend either a full day at Versailles, or a separate trip just to visit the gardens.

The whole trip was wonderful. Our guide explained everything from the ride over to Giverny and on the way to our lunch area and back on the bus to Versailles. She did a wonderful job. I am sorry I did not get her name. The bus ride was very comfortable.
