What To Expect
See for yourself the landscapes that inspired some of the world's greatest Impressionist painters on this 5-hour tour. After pickup at your Paris hotel in a comfortable private vehicle, soak up the picturesque scenery as you travel west through the Seine Valley.
When you arrive in Giverny, visit local landmarks like the churchyard that’s home to Monet's final resting place, a barn used as an artists’ winter studio and exhibition space for the Museum of Impressionism and the Hotel Baudy, once a popular gathering place for Monet and other painters including Renoir, Cézanne, Sisely and Cassat.
At Monet’s house, walk through the charming château that has been preserved much as the artist left it, and see his former studio, now converted into a museum. Stroll through the grounds’ lushly landscaped gardens, and see the Japanese footbridge and lily ponds that inspired some of Monet's most recognizable works.
On the return drive to Paris, travel along the scenic Route des Crêtes to pass a medieval watchtower that dates back to the 10th century and the lovely village of La Roche Guyon. If time permits, also stop in the town of Vétheuil before returning to your Paris hotel.

Giverny with Private Driver

This tour was awesome and definitely worth the money. Lillet was our tour guide and she explains the history of Paris and the area as well as Monet on the ride to Giverny. She was engaging, entertaining , and knowledgeable. We highly recommend this tour and Lillet.

I would definitely recommend this trip. Our vehicle arrived at the hotel on time and was roomy and comfortable. Our guide (Lillet) was charming, wonderfully informative, and very responsive to our interests. The one-half day visit to Giverny was perfectly adequate. We had plenty of time to get to Giverny and tour the house and gardens. Although the visit took place in mid-October, the garden was an explosion of color. The crowds were manageable, unlike the Louvre where the pushing and shoving never ended.
