Every thing was great and well organized. It went like clock work.
Lunch was wonderful, delicious and more than I could eat white more very nice wine than we wanted to drink; at an amazingly beautiful restaurant with a stream and authentic watermill

Our guide Zara did a wonderful job!
The Giverny stop was a delight, walking through Monet’s home and gardens.
The lunch stop was picturesque and the food and ample wine were very good.
Zara’s knowledge of Versailles was thorough and she kept the tour interesting. She was quite attentive especially when a couple in our group somehow misunderstood her seemingly clear as day instructions. Zara went out of her way to try to find the wayward people. This delayed us a bit but was happy to see her efforts to ensure all had a good experience.
Go on this tour unless you want to spend a lot of time in the Versailles gardens.

Our guide Michelle was so knowledgeable and guided us through the crowds to skip the lines with no problem! We are very glad we chose this excursion! We had plenty of time to see both Giverny and Versailles. Our lunch was delicious and relaxing in a lively atmosphere.
