Know More about this tour

After morning pickup from your Paris hotel by private minivan, sit back and relax on the 1.5-hour journey to Giverny to visit Claude Monet's home and gardens. Monet, a key founder of the Impressionist movement, lived for many years at this house and completed a number of his most famous paintings there, including the iconic water lily series

Discover Monet's restored home and studio, where he lived and worked from 1883 to 1926, and explore his breathtaking gardens at your own pace. Capture the beautiful colors on camera; a particular highlight is the water lily pond with its famous Japanese bridge, featured in a number of Monet's masterpieces.

Next head to the Muse des Impressionnismes, where you'll admire a variety of Impressionist paintings and learn about the history of this epic artistic movement, which started in France. Then enjoy lunch at Le Moulin de Fourges, an atmospheric restaurant housed in a 200-year-old mill on the banks of a quiet stream.

Drive an hour to the final stop of your tour, the village of Auvers-sur-Oise, where Vincent van Gogh painted his last works before his death in 1890.

Chat with your guide on a walking tour of the village, and gain insight into van Gogh's life, artistic talent and the mental illness he suffered. Head inside Auberge Ravoux for an independent visit. This is the lodge where van Gogh stayed during his final days.

At the end of the day, hop in your private minivan and back to your Paris hotel, where your day trip ends.

    All four of us, including my husband and two adult children, really enjoyed Giverny and the lovely lunch afterward in a beautiful setting a terrace at an old mill. However, we found Auvers-sur-Oise much less rewarding. Van Gogh's home was very hot and crowded. The guides at the home combined 2 tours 2 different Languages which forced everyone to stand in a tight, crowded,hot and uncomfortable space while the guide spoke in the other language. I would recommend doing Giverny and lunch and skipping Auvers-sur-Oise.

    Amazing experience!!! We loved our tour guide, Pablo! Highly personalized attention to out experience. Lunch is excellent also! Must must do this tour. Saves you the grief of getting to the sites and buying the tickets. Totally worth every dollar. And be sure to be outside at least 15 mins prior

    The tour was an exceptional experience. The gardens at Giverny were beautiful even in laet October. Seeing the church at Auvers was impressive. The guide was very knowledgable.
