Beautiful experience
Lori_H, Oct 2022
One of my favorite excursions on our three week European vacation! Don’t miss this amazing experience to visit the beautiful gardens and home. The tour guide picked us up in a small van and we were allowed to visit a portion of the property at our own leisurely pace. She was very knowledgeable about Monet and his art, and showed us some illustrations to help understand the history of his life and works. A truly wonderful trip. My husband was reluctant to book this one but ended up enjoying it immensely!
Giverny is a must visit!

We had an incredible time visiting Monet’s home and gardens. Even in late October this was incredibly beautiful and a trip we will never forget!
A morning with Monet
Maureen_G, Oct 2022
The Japanese gardens we beautiful and tranquil. It was not cry since we were able to get in 30 min prior to general opening. Our guide was fantastic!
Beautiful day
john_s, Oct 2022
Perfect day weather was great sun was out and the trip was well worth it. Flowers were still in bloom. Once you go you’ll understand Monet’s beautiful piece of earth.
Wonderful quick excursion
Nathan_H, Oct 2022
It was a quick trip out of Paris jam-packed with deep context about Monet. Learning about his family, seeing his eccentric house, and of course walking through the beautiful gardens. It's surreal standing in exact places where Monet painted his water lilies. I'll never look at those paintings the same way again, and I love this trip for that.
Monet’s Gardens
Erica_S, Oct 2022
Great trip to Monet’s Gardens and the surrounding Giverny area. HP is a terrific guide and was very engaging during the whole tour.
The best tour
Ernest_O, Sept 2022
The funny, informative talk given by our host. He was attentive, safety-conscious, and professional.
Profound Eureka moments
Todd_B, Sept 2022
I was looking forward to this experience and far exceeded my expectations. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared stork anecdotes that enlightened a group and made the whole experience special.
Just long enough
paula_r, Sept 2022
Punctual and very pleasant tour guide Bill and Gabrielle in training. We were above to avoid the crowds as we went first thing the morning.
We loved our guide Will. Great sense of humor
Marlene_S, Sept 2022

Not to be missed

Monet Lilly pond grounds and house were amazing. The cemetery story was also very informative to learn about
The trip was beautiful...
Alexandra_I, Sept 2022
The trip was beautiful and memorable. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, patient and helpful. Our family with 2 kids, 10 and 11 years old had an amazing time and memories.
A Magical Morning
Rita_W, Aug 2022
The visit to Giverny was one of my favorite parts of our trip to Paris. We went on the morning tour and were the first ones in Monet’s water lily garden at 9am. The first 10-15 minutes, having the garden to ourselves, was absolutely magical! The van pickup and drop off were convenient. Our tour guide, Lily was friendly and informative. The small group made the experience feel intimate and pleasant. I highly recommend this tour for fans of Claude Monet, gardening enthusiasts or anyone visiting Paris who would like a little jaunt to the countryside. Don’t forget to leave enough time for the gift shop. It had a great selection and wasn’t too expensive!
Anne_C, Aug 2022
The journey to Giverney was nearly an hour would have helped if the driver/guide had imparted some information while driving. Once we arrived there got a brief account about Monet’s life and left to our resources. Had about 2 hours there. It was packed with tourists which didn’t help. We saw other guides staying with their groups and kind of listened to their talks. Not worth the money spent. Disappointing visit
Worth the trip
Jasmyne_W, Aug 2022
I had a great time visiting Monet's Gardens and Gravesite. We were a small group, so we had a lot of individual attention from our wonderful, knowledgable tour guide, Ulyss. We had time for ourselves, which I really appreciated because I wanted the chance to explore at my own pace. I never felt rushed. It was very busy, but this is to be expected on a weekend. I'd do this tour again (and I will), but I'll hope for my same tour guide!
The Beauty of Monet
Lisa_M, Aug 2022
Outstanding driver and guide. Learned so much about Giverny and Monet. The grounds and gardens of Monet's home are impossible to describe, and the pictures do not show the full beauty. It is a place that must be seen to comprehend the majesty of nature fully. The air-conditioned ride was pleasant and comfortable, and each place we visited was timed perfectly. There is sufficient time to see everything but not too long at any one place. It could not have been more perfect. I did a tour in the afternoon, and I loved our guide and felt the price was a bargain for the memory of a lifetime.
Monet’s Garden
Mark_A, July 2022
Excellent trip, on time, very informative, great tour guide. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended.
Great half day tour
Charles_T, July 2022
We loved our trip to Giverny. Our van was very comfortable and air conditioned, our driver/tour guide was very accommodating and informative, and we made new friends along the way. We arrived at the Claude Monet estate early around 9:00am, and we were nearly the first group to experience the grounds for the day. Highly recommend!
A Bucket List Tour
Pamela_M, July 2022
A friend and I took this tour recently when we were visiting Paris. The tour began in Paris at the time planned. Will, our tour God and his trainee side kick were very personable and provided some good information about Monet's beautiful estate. Most of the time in Giverny was on our own. The gardens are beautiful and the house itself a treat to see. If you have a love of Monet's work, visiting it should be on your bucket list. It would have been nice to have had the time to walk around the village, but the line to tour the house was long, and that was our priority. Would my friend and I do it again...most assuredly.
Beautiful day, beautiful gardens
Peg_M, July 2022
Our guide , Sarah, was great. She provided new and interesting information about Monet, the gardens as well as the areas we drove through. The house and gardens are well worth the trip….just beautiful. You can see how Monet was inspired by his surroundings
