What You Can Expect
When you arrive, your guide will let you explore on your own. Tour the charmingly restored house, where you can see works of art that Monet collected, wander through the jungle of flowers in the garden, and walk across the Japanese bridge over the lily pond that you’ll recognize from his paintings. Then continue your Impressionist education at the Musée des Impressionnismes, home to many works from this beloved era of art, which began in France in the 19th century.
Next, enjoy lunch at Le Moulin de Fourges, a restaurant inside a 200-year-old mill, before continuing your day trip with the 1-hour drive to Auvers-sur-Oise. Walk through the village with your guide, learning about Vincent van Gogh’s days here before he died in 1890. Hear a bit about his life, post-Impressionist works and mental illness, and then visit Auberge Ravoux, where he spent his final days.
Your day trip ends with the drive back to Paris for hotel drop-off.
Our guide -- Fred --- was great. This tour would be good with anyone but he made it great. Recommended.
Amazing. Our guide, Fred, was awesome.
Beautiful day with some rain.
We have visited Paris previously, but this time travelling with our granddaughter a keen art enthusiast so this day trip was perfect! Very well organised day, excellent guide, lovely lunch.
Totally relaxing and wonderful way to spend a day. Timing was great, the guide was fantastic, and the nature was wonderful after three weeks in NYC and Paris. So nice to relax and not have to make any decisions!
We had a wonderful trip to Giverny with our guide Fred on Saturday, September 26- he was personable, funny and very knowledgeable - their were eight of us on the trip and it was a very congenial group - Fortunately it was a day of beautiful weather - but the gardens would be beautiful at any time - I was traveling with a friend who spoke french and she enjoyed talking with our guide Fred - it really was a great day and I would highly recommend as a day trip from Paris!!!
Monet's garden was absolutely beautiful, a riot of colour with masses of flowers and greenery! We had a great day with Ricardo entertaining us along the way. The lunch at the mill was very high quality and very pleasant company. Lastly, we had a sunny afternoon in Auvers Sur Oise where we felt immersed in the world of Vincent Van Gogh. My favourite day of my whole holiday!
Our trip was perfect. Fred was a wonderful tour guide. Thank you Fred! We would do it again in a New York minute.
An amazing experience even on a rainy day. Our guide, David, was informative and a joy to be with. I highly recommend this tour.
Outstanding! Herbert , our driver/guide was fantastic. The lunch out in the garden at the Moulin was so special.
Many thanks. SO very glad I booked this trip! 5 star
