So now our travel group is attempting (!!) to put together a Paris itinerary.
We've looked at tours that cover both Versailles and Giverny in one day and prices are outrageously expensive (average USD200 per person).
My question is:
Is it possible to visit both on our own (take a train and self tour) or does it make more sense to take the plunge and book a tour?
Our group is split on this.
My choice is to just take a train to Versailles from Paris and do a self tour -- and skip Giverny altogether.
We are visiting Paris the first week in October (4 days total) so weather-wise I'm not sure Giverny is worth the effort.
Your advice is greatly appreciated.
