New!! ( due to the big amount of requests)
This is a combined tour often requested by travelers.
Two attractive locations especially during summer.
In normal conditions, I will pick you up at 9 am at your hotel. I will take you to Versailles on the following hour. The entrance at the Palace is scheduled around 10 (no lines).
During the next two hours, we will visit the palace (state apartments, hall of the mirrors, chapel, battle gallery) if we have enough time (or if you want to give more time) we can visit the gardens.
Once finished in Versailles, around 12h 30, we will head to Normandy to get to Giverny, getting there after one hour drive.
once in Giverny, we can have a delicious lunch (several choices of restaurants). Following lunch, we will visit the Claude Monet house and gardens where I will guide you (no lines either).
Then we can visit the little village of Giverny and on the way back I will take you through the area of the French Vexin, passing by interesting villages like la Roche Guyon, a relaxing drive to finish a busy day.
Versailles palace; royal chapel, Queen's Apartments, Kings Apartments, Hall of the Mirrors. Royal gardens.

Our guided tour through Monet's home and private garden was the highlight of our trip. Walking through the garden made our visit to view Monet's paintings much more magical. Gustavo did a great job explaining the history of the Impressionist movement and the techniques that the artists used. During our visit to Versailles, Gustavo's explanation of the French Revolution was fascinating and left us with a desire to learn more about it. We enjoyed learning about the Revolution through the amazing artwork.
