Departure Time

8:00 AM
Take a break from the urban bustle of Paris to explore two treasured historical sites on this diverse day trip. Meet your chauffeur and any other passengers with pickup at your Paris hotel in the morning, and travel in an air-conditioned minivan through the scenic French countryside.

First, skip the entrance lines at the Palace of Versailles with priority access, and embark on audio guided tour the jaw-dropping estate, home to generations of French monarchs and one of the most magnificent royal palaces in Europe. Learn about the history of the UNESCO World Heritage site as you walk through opulent salons, royal apartments and the sprawling French-style gardens. You’ll have time to eat lunch independently or enjoy a prearranged meal of traditional French cuisine and drinks (if option selected).

Continue on to visit the charming town of Giverny to tour the home of one of the world's greatest Impressionist painters, Claude Monet. See where the celebrated artist lived and worked on a self-guided tour of his home, which has been immaculately preserved much as he left it. Stroll through the well-kept gardens that inspired some of Monet's most famous works, including his ‘Water Lilies’ series, and enjoy the peacefulness of this artistic refuge.

After getting your fill of royal history, relax on the return drive to Paris, where the tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel in the early evening.

A Must See

Even in the pouring rain, this trip was fabulous. The van, which was full, was extremely comfortable and the driver was very friendly and helpful. We were dropped off at Versailles where we met our tour guide, Valerie, who was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was wonderful and I saw much, much more of Versailles than I had on a previous trip. We did not have to stand in the ridiculously long line to get in and Valerie paced herself so that we were never pushed or crowded in the rooms. We had lunch at restaurant across the street from the palace, which was included. We were given two choices. The food was excellent and included an entree, salad, drinks and dessert. We were picked up at the restaurant and driven to Giverny, and, again, in the pouring rain this place was magnificent. We had plenty of time to explore on our own. I highly recommend this tour. What a memorable, beautiful day!

Our Driver was late picking us up, although he was very nice. Then he was late picking us back up to take us to the next tour. The directions on the pick up point was awful on the second trip, I was ready to go back to room and call it a day. The visit to the Versailles was good

This was a very expensive tour!! I will admit it was nice to be picked up at our hotel instead of finding a meeting place in the big city of Paris. Our driver was very friendly and prompt. Meeting our tour guide at Versailles was easy and a very informative tour even though our daughter had many problems with her headphones. We had a delicious lunch in a local restaurant. Asked for some extra time so we could enjoy irhe meal. We called and the driver was accommodating and prompt. Time at the Palace was short and we really didn't have enough time to enjoy or view all of the gardens. Taking a little extra time for lunch meant that we got to Monets Garden a little late. Driver offered us extra time and said he would wait for us. Leaving Paris for the day was to go out into the country was a welcome change.

This was a great way to see two interesting locations while only missing one day in Paris. Paschal was a great driver/tour guide - full of interesting information. It was great to have skip the line access at Versailles and Giverny - this definitely gave us extra hours at each location especially Versailles which was packed. The van was very clean, comfortable and nicely air -conditioned.

Unexpectedly we were the only two people on our trip to Giverny and Versailles. We were picked up in a plush vehicle at the time requested. Our Driver Pasquale was knowledgeable but respectful of our requirements. He dropped us of at the door and picked us back up at the door. Overall a very seamless days outing. All tickets provided and absolutely no hang ups. Fantastic.
