Wonderful tour guide (Fred) & Beautiful palace tour
Frederick was a wonderful tour guide and he was so knowledgeable. He talked a lot about the history behind the palace of Versailles on our way there and when we arrived We skipped the line and went straight into the palace. He explained each room’s architecture & paintings. It was probably a little too much for my 17-year-old granddaughter (not into history as much as me) and he realized that and gave us the highlights. I would definitely recommend it.
Giverny and Versailles
Amazing day – I have already recommended this tour to friends and family. Fred was so incredibly knowledgeable we learned so mich.
Fred and Versailles and Giverny
Fred was absolutely the best and most knowledge guide ever. He was humble, kind and extremely in-depth. At times it might have been a bit too much info for me as I was most interested in photography … However for those who want to learn, Fred is your guy. A wonderful day. Couldn’t thank him enough.
A Day with Fred was a great one!
We booked this tour for convenience and did not expect how absolutely amazing Fred made our day. Called us the night before to confirm and picked us up on the button. The Van was comfortable and clean. As we departed Fred gave us a blow by blow of everything we passed in Paris and had a wonderful demeanor. We got off the freeway and went the scenic route to Giverny. When we arrived…no lines and again Fred knew everything we needed to know and more about Monet and the beautiful gardens and home. He did leave us to enjoy things on our own and then chose a wonderful place in town for an amazing lunch. Again we took the scenic route to Versailles and Fred pointes out places Monet chose to paint landscapes and it brought everything we had seen in Giverny to life. At Versailles parking was a breeze…no line for tickets, flew through security and Fred pointed out all of the amazing detail of Versailles through the eyes of Louis XIV. The day ended all too quickly and I will say that if you want an amazing non-touristy tour…book and excursion with Fred. You will be glad you did!
Parismatic Tour was Excellent
Fred was unbelievably knowledgeable. We have been on several guided tours, and this one was best. Fred is professional, punctual, knowledgeable and accommodating. His transport van is modern and comfortable, which add to the enjoyment of the day trip.
If you are looking for the best tour, book with Parismatic Fred.
Wonderful Tour with Fred!
Our tour guide with Parismatic was Fred. He was on time and friendly from the start. He was extremely knowledgeable and was able to provide information on everything as we left Paris (even when it wasn’t related to the tour itself). His vehicle was clean, comfortable, and high tech. It was obvious as we approached Giverny and later Versailles that Fred had scheduled our time well. We avoided the large crowds at both locations and had a lovely visit (this was a contrast to the last time we went to Versailles that was so crowded you couldn’t stop to take pictures). Fred reserved our lunch spot for us while we walked around Giverny and we had a coveted umbrella spot outside on the patio to view the flowers. This was a wonderful experience and I would most definitely do it again! Everything was taken care of, he picked us up and dropped us off, the tour was private and filled with all the knowledge you need, and there was plenty of time to just enjoy yourself in the gardens of both places. This was crafted to be the best experience one could have!
Versailles & Giverny Private Guided Tour
Our wonderful guide Fred (Viator Co.) picked us up at our hotel and gave us the best tour ever. He was a walking encyclopedia! He had so much enthusiasm and made our tour so enjoyable. We were able skip lines and save the time to see everything. Versailles is a must on your trip and the only way is a private tour.
Perfection outside of Paris
Our full day guided tour of Versailles and Giverny was a great value.
Fred, our guide from Prismatic Tours, was professional, well-informed, energetic and witty. The best day tour you can get. Within 50 meters of our hotel he began educating the four of us and didn’t stop until we returned. Both sites were unique and special.
We loved our trip to Giverny & Versailles! Our Guide Fred, with Parismatic, was awesome! He was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. The Monet Gardens was absolutely worth the time and money and Versailles was very impressive. Highly recommend this trip!
