Two of France's Most Loved Attractions


This combined tour is back by popular demand! I understand the travelers since these are two attractive locations, especially during summer.

I will pick you up at 9 AM at your hotel and head to Versailles with skip-the-line tickets which I booked in advance. During our 2-hour visit, you'll learn about the state apartments, hall of the mirrors, chapel & battle gallery.

Then we'll head out to the spectacular gardens. From April to October, it is possible to see the water fountain show in the gardens on the weekends and some Tuesdays.

We'll stop for lunch in the charming town of Giverny with several choices of restaurants I can recommend.

See where Claude Monet, the father of Impressionism, lived and worked for 43 years in Giverny as we visit his house. You'll be mesmerized with his gardens (Flower and Water Gardens) which is where most of his paintings are inspired.

Before we head back to your hotel, I'll take you through French Vexin and pass by interesting villages like la Roche Guyon.

A Recent Review of this tour

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.
