We were grateful could accommodate us at very short notice for a Sunday trip to Versailles and Giverny with Paris City Vision. This is a great combination as both locations are very interesting to see in their own way and combining them makes for a great day out.

It was a small group, just six of us, and we had the luxury of being picked up at our Airbnb apartment by our host for the day, the inimitable chauffeur cum guide extraordinaire, Honoré. We left the city at 0845h and with the very light Sunday morning traffic we were walking the grounds of Versailles by 0930h.

Honoré not only entertained us with his wonderfully informative stories but paved the way with priority access to the most interesting places. Our time in the gardens was necessarily short, which suited us as we spent adequate time inside the palace and saw the main rooms.

From Versailles we drove for an hour or so into Normandy and had lunch at the picturesque Moulin de Fourges in the heart of the impressionist region. This really was an idyllic location in a tranquil setting where we got to know our fellow travellers all the better before moving on to the second part of our day.

After lunch we went to the nearby village of Giverny and spent the afternoon wondering through Monet's lily ponds, garden and house and visiting the impressionist museum.

It was a lovely day, interesting and well paced with a good group and fantastic guide seeing two different parts of France's great heritage. . Well done and Paris City Vision.

Francis was our tour guide - and he did an excellent job conveying information to us while he was driving us - first to Versailles and then to Giverny. There were only six people in our vehicle - and everything was absolutely perfect! We got right in- to both venues. Our lunch was delicious too. I would highly recommend this experience - it was perfection - our favorite day on our twelve day adventure to Europe.
