Outstanding

The entire tour was organized in an exemplary manner, the tour guide was unique and very nice. The lunch together in a very nice atmosphere was also super-transparent for an offer of this kind. Only the visit to the palace in Versailles was disappointing, but it is not otherwise possible due to the local conditions.

Giverny was great, Versailles okay…

Monet's gardens were simply awesome! So magnificent. We were there early. Lunch at the mill was good. Good service. Versailles is magnificent, but unfortunately there are too many people. It was an unimaginable crowd. It's also full of modern art. That's unbelievable to me. If you haven't seen Versailles before, it's definitely a must, but I've had enough.

Jean was prompt and his commentary comprehensive.

The contrast between excess and simplicity, old and modern France makes this an excellent day trip, a must for lovers of history, art and gardening.
