Versailles and Giverny -- tour?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone!

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.

Thanks,
Judy
