Overview

Like nature? Love Impressionism? Read on! Let us whisk you away on a half-day trip to the village of Giverny, where Monet and the other Impressionists set up home in the 19th Century. After a short one-and-a-half-hour ride from Paris, you'll find yourself in this quaint little village in Normandy, where you'll visit Monet's exquisite house and gardens. Your art historian guide will animate your tour around the flowerbeds that proved a source of inspiration for Monet, pass the water lily pond made famous in the Nymphs series and across the Japanese bridge that pops up so often in his work. Then you'll explore Monet's house, almost untouched by the passage of time.

    I had a lovely afternoon out, The guide was extremely informative giving information almost continuously throughout the trip.

    I have had a life long interest in art. Have always wished to see and experience Monet's Garden, lily pond, and house one day. It was a marvelous experience to see it with my own eyes. However the time there was quite short. ( just short of two hours, inclusive of the walk to and from where the bus was parked ). Of course it was good to browse in the shop to take away a suitable souvenir of my visit. There was so much to choose from.

    We had the best guide for this 1/2 tour of Monet’s Giverny. Eva was AMAZING! She is so knowledgeable and gave us so much information. She was able to answer all of my questions and explained to us all about Monet’s Love with lots of interesting anecdotes. I highly recommend this tour!

    Evie was our guide and we did the tour with her providing commentary. The bus was air conditioned, quiet and comfortable, perhaps a little cool. Evie started her commentary as soon as the bus left. She was extremely well informed and told Monets story from when he was a child until his death. We were so glad we did the guided tour rather than the self tour, as her commentary was amazing and as an artist I was entranced by what I heard. Well worth the money and so pleased we did this.

    The bus trip, commentary and gardens were wonderful. We were dropped off in the middle of Paris not as arranged at Pullman hotel and it took us 2 hours to find our way home! Bus running late.

  • 15-Jul-2023

    This was to have been a guided tour; instead I felt it was like an escorted trip. The guide did NO guiding of the gardens like other groups had. All the guide did was talk some on the way to the home. That is not what my wife and I were expecting. Site was very nice but Viator did not live up to our expectations.

    We were going to take the train to Vernon, but the times were terrible. I’m so glad we booked this- stress free transportation to Giverny and seeing Monet’s house and gardens are just amazing! One of my favorite things we did in Paris.

    Great day, well worth the visit. Even though it rained for the most part it was still a fantastic day.

  • 10-Jul-2023

    Brilliant guide, zoltan(?) Really appreciated his knowledge of Monet and the gardens and advice about travel in Paris

  • 07-Jul-2023

    The tour guide was great; the house and gardens fantastic; but I feel like the coach driver brought his license on ETSY and put the passengers in unnecessary risk.
