I was a solo traveler and the trip was awesome! The guide was awesome. He drove us in minivan to Versailles and took care of entry and everything and gave us a private tour of the palace and then drove us to Giverny’s B&B where our lunch had been arranged and cost included in the booking. We had peaceful lunch at scenic B&B with some open seating at a garden with live music and some good French wine and food! Then the guide drove us to Monet’s village and he left us and gave us plenty of time to explore the garden and house and village! While driving back to Paris, he gave us some good pointers on sightseeing in Paris!

Great driver and guide. Had a wonderful self tour of Monet's Gardens and House with ample time. A really nice lunch in a country setting. And then a real nice overview tour of Versailles, especially the Palace and outside Gardens. The whole day was enjoyable!

I would not recommend this tour if traveling to Paris the day before via airlines. Our flight was delayed over 12 hours due to mechanical issues. We called Viator immediately upon realizing we couldn't make the tour, and they refused to provide a credit. Very disappointed in Viators customer service and therefore would not recommend Viator to others.

I am so glad that I booked this tour. I didn't have to worry about getting to these attractions, everything was done for me. Our tour guide was very informative and knew exactly what to do. The lunch that we had was amazing. I felt sorry for all the people that had to waste their time standing in a long line!

Pamela our guide made sure we enjoyed the tour. We were a group of six and she kept us engaged the entire time on a very long day. Hitting both places in one day was ambitious but Pamela knew all the ways to make the day run smoothly and efficiently. Although she herself gave the guided tour of Versailles, She provided us ample time to wander own our own in the palace gardens and at Monet’s house and garden. Great tour. Interesting and informative and allowed us to have only one day outside of Paris instead of two, which worked well with out schedule. If there were any shortcoming on the trip, it is the lunch. Gorgeous and charming setting, but the entre left something to be desired. Otherwise, we loved the tour in every way.

The tour successfully contrasted the simplicity of Giverny to the opulence of Versailles Excellent guide who made sure we had not only an enjoyable but also an informative day. Small group was ideal.Transfer well organised and lunch quality so far above any tour lunch I have experienced. Would highly recommend.

This was a fantastic experience!! It was quite a lot to do in one day, but it was well worth it. Our group was small, which makes such a big difference, and our guide was very knowledgeable about Versailles.

I cannot rave about this tour enough. Seeing both INCREDIBLE sights in one day is essential & this tour is the only one for it! Our tour guide Nick was nothing short of amazing & made our tour so special. He was informative, helpful & not at all annoying like some tour guides can be, The place they take you to for lunch was phenomenal & so incredibly gorgeous. The van is very spacious & the air conditioning is great (& essential!) This tour is worth every penny & I could not recommend it enough. Request Nick as your guide for the best tour ever!

Epic failure

I called Paris City Vision as requested, 3 days prior to schedule our pick-up for our trip to Giverny and Versailles. I then called the day prior to our scheduled trip and confirmed that our apartment was on a pedestrian only access walkway and would the tour company prefer for us to meet the driver at a more vehicle-friendly site. We were assured NO, the driver will come find us. On the appointed day we were to be picked-up at 8:30. We sat in the apartment with no one arriving. At 8:45 I began calling the tour company attempting to reach them, making 6 calls, but no one answered the phone. No one ever called us, no one came to the apartment to take us on the trip. I would never us Paris City Vision again, and by extension I will also no longer use Viator.
