  • Overview
    See two of France’s most culturally significant areas with the Giverny and Versailles by Minibus tour. Take advantage of the fact that most tours visit Giverny in the afternoon, and spend the morning getting a more private experience at the home of one of the most celebrated Impressionist painters in history, Claude Monet. The experienced driver-guide will walk you through the gardens that inspired the genius, which have been reconstructed to their original state. Marvel at the beauty of the water lily pond and the breath taking Japanese bridge, made famous by Monet’s 1899 masterpiece, Bridge over a Pond of Water. Breathe in the sweet-scented air in the colourful, vibrant garden before visiting Claude Monet’s house and studio. Your driver-guide will also provide you with the entrance ticket to the new ''Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny'' which celebrates and is committed to sustaining the work of Impressionist artists in the Giverny area. Pause for lunch, which is included in the price of your ticket. The picturesque old watermill restaurant, Moulin de Fourges serves a mouthwatering set menu in a stunning setting. This is followed by a pleasant drive through the countryside of the Seine valley en route to Versailles. Here you will be treated to a guided tour of the Versailles Gardens, equally as spectacular as those in Giverny. Finish off a relaxing, culturally rich day by visiting the beautiful State Apartments in Palace of Versailles.
