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.
A great trip with our tour guide, JoEl We were a small group of three couples from the United States which was the perfect size for the places we visited. The tour included pickup and drop off which worked well considering that we are in our late 60s. Versailles is a wonder of the world and should not be missed. The gardens of Giverny are impressive. Since this was beginning of June both sites were crowded and the small tour worked well
Our Guide and Driver, Julian was excellent. Experienced exactly what we were looking for - Giverny was a bit too crowded to really enjoy the gardens but overall we loved seeing the highlights of both places. The included lunch in a Normandy Countryside restaurant was an amazing surprise. While we could have spent an entire day at each place, seeing the highlights with an experienced and knowledgeable guide made the long day well worth it. 8 total in the group was just the right size.
I'm still having flashbacks! Was I really there? Totally in awe of the Sun King and his palace. Starting to believe he really was a God thanks to our great guild, Pierre I think was his name, who was obviously so passionate about the subject.
Walter the guide was exceptional. On time. Nice van. Great lunch. Skip the line tours super. Tours fab. Well worth it.
This was an exceptional day of touring with a guide that provided a wealth of historical information.
Versailles was terrific and Monet’s garden was unbelievable. I feltlike I had stepped directly into an impressionist painting! An extra - unexpected - bonus was the gourmet meal served at the Moulin de Fourges Restaurant surrounded by the besutiful French countryside.
The best part of it was that we did not have to get on any line. The driver was good too. The history and views of versailes were excellent, but there was nothing so spectacular about the Giverny gardens. I would have enjoyed going to the botanical garden.instead. The food was ordinary.
The air conditioning in the van broke down and it was the hottest day in Paris. Drove down the highway with the windows rolled down.
I really enjoyed this visit. It was fantastic. We were only four in the group and the others were so nice. Our driver-guide, Nicolai was very knowledgeable, courteous and kept asking us whether we have any questions. Versailles was lovely, but hot and crowded. Our tickets allowed us to skip the line easily. Our lunch was fantastic. Afterwards we went to Giverny, to Monet's house, it's beautiful, so well kept. The gardens are breathtaking. I highly recommend
