Our guide was personable and extremely knowledgeable about French history. He kept the flow at a reasonable pace. It was interesting getting out of the city into smaller towns.

Our tour guide was amazing, full of knowledge and helpful tips about Paris. Giverny was amazing and it was nice to be able to walk the gardens at our own pace. Versailles was incredibly crowded but our guide did a great job of getting us through, even giving us access to rooms not usually on tour.

Wanted to see both Giverny and Versailles but didn't want to do 2 more separate day trips, decided to go with a group tour to manage the logistics rather than on our own which we did to Fontainebleau and worked out beautifully, only 5 people in our group. Our driver/guide, Michelle, was a wealth of knowledge, very helpful and kept to a good time schedule which did not feel rushed at all but got us back exactly when they said they would. She was also very accommodating in dropping us off where we wanted. I would ask for her again next time we go and take the kids loved it!

I loved this tour it was perfect! Super informative and the only way to get through Versailles without waiting and before noon! Which is epic. Being driven there going straight in and given a guided tour throughout it. Some people wait hours and are lost in the lines. I loved Giverny. My only regret is not having cash on me to tip my guide. She was excellent nice British guide.

A Five Star Value: Our tour included an in-depth view of Claude Monet's Gardens at Giverny, a fabulous four course luncheon at the historic Mill at Le Moulin de Fougeres, and an afternoon tour of the most significant architectural and historical aspects of Versailles and Gardens. Our guide, Mr. Silva, was charming, an expert in all aspects of the tour, invited and answered all of our questions, and expedited our entry to all locations. The minibus we traveled in was comfortable and, so, the day was a delight and a great value given all we did.
