No Paris visit is achieved without a detour to see Claude Monet’s gardens at Giverny and the gilded splendor of the Versailles palace. Taking a combined full day tour covering both Versailles and Giverny is ideal for those who don’t have much time in Paris let alone optimising the cost for such an expedition.
It is a lot to cover but in a small private it’s totally doable and more importantly at a leisurely pace. No group inertia here ! You’ll just walk past the ticket desk and cruise through with your private guide. There will always be a crowd around you in the Giverny gardens or in every room of the Versailles Chateau but you can still discover those two sites in a pleasant manner and spend a memorable time thanks to your private guide.
Explore Giverny gardens in the morning to enjoy the diversity of flowers and plants. The garden was restored to its former beauty back in Monet’s heyday, and inspired much of his art.
After a relaxing lunch in the french countryside on the banks of the Epte river you will head towards Versailles. You will be astonished by the beauty and interior decoration of the Chateau, the royal apartments, the Hall of Mirrors and the queens apartments, then the perfectly trimmed gardens spreading out behind the palace.
