Perfect!!! Our tour guide was amazing! Georgia was very enganging, she definitely knows a lot and loves being a tour guide. She made the extra effort to make sure everyone enjoyed the day and I could tell she cared for each one of us. The best tour guide I’ve ever had in Europe!! And Monet’s house and garden was beautiful!!

This was a fabulous trip! You definitely need a full day to do everything and not feel rushed. Take your time in Monet’s gardens but don’t be late for lunch. The museum is smaller than you think it will be, so take some time to sit in its gardens and explore the village.

Georgia was a fantastic guide with lots of historical information and fun stories that went with Monet and the art world. I really enjoyed her. The bus was comfortable and it was nice that they gave out water to the passengers.

It was a very nice and beautiful trip to Giverny - we definitely can recommend it!

In Versaille I think we needed more time than it was planned.
