Recommended on TripAdvisor & Rick Steves’ Paris 2024 / RS10%

Experience two iconic French destinations in a single day with our shared transfer tour from Paris to Versailles and Giverny. Your journey begins in the morning as you meet your driver, and then you’ll travel comfortably in an air-conditioned minivan through the picturesque French countryside.

First, skip the lines at the Palace with your priority access, and embark on guided tour with the group (16 pax max) of the jaw-dropping estate, home to generations of French Monarchs and one of the most magnificent royal palaces in Europe. Learn about the history of this UNESCO World Heritage site as you walk through opulent Salons, Royal Apartments and the breathtaking French-style gardens. You’ll have time to eat lunch independently.

Pursue your visit with the charming town of Giverny (small group 8 pax maximum), home to one of the world’s greatest Impressionist painters, Claude Monet. See where the celebrated artist lived and worked on a self-guided tour of his home, which has been immaculately preserved. Stroll through the well-kept gardens that inspired some of Monet’s most famous work, including his ‘Water Lilies’ series, and enjoy the peacefulness of this artistic refuge. After getting your fill of royal history, relax on the return drive to Paris.

TRAFFIC IN PARIS:
We would like to inform you that our company is not responsible for the traffic between Paris and Versailles, which can sometimes exceed an hour of travel time. That's why we only accept pickups in the western part of Paris and select districts to avoid long journeys in our vehicles.
To make your life easier and reduce your travel time, we recommend the following steps:
Departure to Versailles & Giverny:
We advise you to choose a meeting point in the western part of Paris. This way, the driver will have more time to get to Versailles, ensuring that you don't miss your guide at Versailles.
Return to Paris:
If you find yourself in the middle or east of Paris, we also recommend selecting a meeting point in the western part of Paris, such as near the Eiffel Tower. You can then use the metro to reach your destination. By opting for a strategic meeting point, you can optimize your journey to or from Giverny. We provide additional time for the driver to reach Versailles in the morning because we understand the importance of not missing your guide at Versailles. If you need specific advice on meeting points or metro routes, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are here to help make your trip as enjoyable as possible.
