We absolutely loved this tour. Chris was so insightful and the perfect guide. My mother-in-law thought we were just seeing Versailles. So visiting Giverny was a surprise and she was so excited. She could have stayed all day exploring the gardens. The lines at Versailles were insanely long so this tour was worth every penny to get to skip those lines. The vehicle was comfortable and spacious. Definitely book this tour!

Giverny was a dream place for me and the visit did not disappoint! We went with Chris who took us to Giverny first in morning, which was best because we beat the crowds. The guided part was a little disappointing as there wasn’t very much information given, I was expecting some more insights and interesting tid bits of info, but I had to ask the questions and then get short answers in return. Going to Versailles is very busy with big crowds, so it was definitely comfortable to have a guide, in the sense of being able to get in easy & quickly to avoid the lines. He was able to give us a bit more information at Versailles than Giverny, but still felt a little rushed. Not knowing it until we got into the car, going back into our hotel.. we were getting back an hour early than what we had signed up/paid for. That was definitely a bit disappointing, because I would’ve loved to have had the extra hour to explore more of Giverny at least.

Our guide Isabel was wonderful! She came to pick us up on time and kept us entertained throughout the drive from Paris to Versailles. She is very knowledgeable and could answer all our questions. She also made sure we were comfortable and enjoying our tour. It was very personalized because, the itinerary was originally lunch in Giverny but since we finished the Versailles tour close to noon, she booked us a table by the window at La Flotille Café in Versailles coz I mentioned that I celebrated my birthday there 15 years ago. I highly recommend this tour coz you not only skip the lines but have to convenience of being picked up and dropped off at your hotel or residence in Paris. Do request for Isabel and I guarantee you will have an awesome time!
