Guide's recommendations
Marina Tour Guide since 2016 I love this tour because in one day you can visit 2 beautiful places with wonderful gardens. Lunch time is also a good moment in a charming mill in the middle of the campaign. Everything is perfectly organised and you don't lose your time if you only have few days in Paris !

Ideal combo tour to visit two of the biggest attractions in the Paris region. You will enjoy a visit to Claude Monet's magnificent gardens in Giverny as well as the house of the master of Impressionism. After a traditional lunch, you will leave to visit the famous Palace of Versailles, which will take you back into the history of the Kings of France.

Set off at 8:15 a.m. from our agency in Central Paris. The journey to Giverny by luxury air-conditioned coach will take approximately one hour and 30 minutes. Soak up the world of the painter, Claude Monet, famous for painting different corners of his garden, such as the "Water Lilies" or the "Japanese Bridge." The painter Claude Monet lived at Giverny with his wife and eight children for 43 years, from 1883 until his death in 1926. Passionate about gardening and nature's changing colors, he designed his flower and water gardens as if they were works of art. During your visit of Monet's garden at Giverny, admire the multicolored flower beds, the Clos Normand Flower Garden with its many Eastern plants, and the lush water garden, famous for its water lilies and Japanese bridge. 

Claude Monet Giverny gardens

Then take advantage of your free time to visit Claude Monet's pink-plastered house, where he lived and worked (guided tours of the interior are not permitted due to the lack of space). Explore the reading room, leading into the larder and the artist's studio. In addition to those of his private apartments, these rooms have been reconstructed with Monet's original furniture. Visit the bright yellow dining room, which has been reconstructed down to the very last detail, with earthenware dishes and a blue-tiled kitchen. In the dining room, marvel at one of the world's most important collections of Japanese prints. At the end of your visit, explore the village and treat yourself to some souvenir shopping in the gift and book shop, which was once used as a studio for Monet's Water Lilies; it offers a wide range of products inspired by the artist's work.

After visiting Giverny, enjoy a tasty lunch at the Moulin de Fourges restaurant just ten minutes away, where you can sample local food with a twist.


Mackerel bread with vegetables and white wine, herbed cream and salad
Roasted chicken fillet, mushrooms sauce, mashed potatoes with salted butter
Apple pie à la normande, vanilla iced cream
Red and white wine or local produced cider (on demand)
Coffee or tea

In the afternoon, explore the Palace and Gardens of Versailles. Covering more than 721,000 square feet, the Palace has over 700 rooms. Follow your guide to the front of the line to see the most impressive rooms: the King's Apartments, with seven salons each dedicated to a different god, and the Queen's Apartments. Also visit the majestic Hall of Mirrors, a reception room in which to see and be seen, dreamt up by the famous architect, Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Almost 240 feet-long, it was designed to astonish visitors of the Sun King Louis XIV; it is lit by 17 windows and 350 mirrors, and overlooks the palace's splendid gardens, the second part of your visit. Explore the Gardens of Versailles at your own pace and marvel at its many works of art, fountains, ponds, flower beds and groves of trees.

Comfortable bus. Got us in and out of two big spots on time and the lunch was great
We would highly recommend this excursion, it really is good value for money and is a thoroughly enjoyable and interesting trip. Our tour guide was incredible, his knowledge and insight into these areas is amazing. The information he gave to us was informative, and entertaining.
Excellent tours with knowledgable guides.
We had a lovely time on this tour. Monet's Gardens were, of course, beautiful. The lunch takes place at a beautiful setting. It may have been my favorite part. Versailles was also beautiful, especially the gardens, but very crowded. We toured the end of May. I wouldn't recommend Versailles any later in the summer! Definitely pay for the guided tour, not the audio tour. The few people who just did the audio seemed a bit left out. Again, this tour is perfect for a quick overview of these two sites if you don't have time to split them into different days. Our guide was fantastic as well.
Friendly and knowledgeable guide. Comfortable coach ride. Delicious lunch. Highly recommend.
