Wonderful trip in a nice van with an interesting, knowledgeable guide. Monet's Giverny gardens were a dream come true. Visited gardens in the morning when the light and colors were pretty to photograph the flowers. Luckily got in when crowds were starting to grow from buses of visitors. But go if you want to see the flowers and Monet's home. Lunch on Epp River was delicious and setting was lovely. Afternoon at town Auvers was solemn considering VanGogh's death and grave but felt privledged to go to church he painted and walk around the town. Those who appreciate VanGogh's work should go.
It helped that we had brilliant fall weather--cool and clear. But our guide/driver, Alice, couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Once we reached our destinations she steered us in the right direction but gave us ample time on our own for independent exploration. Lunch at a mill near Giverny was tasty in a very attractive setting. All in all, a fabulous day we shall treasure.
We had a lovely guide and day. 6 of us were picked up on time and had a very informative day! It was lovely at Giverny and sad at Auvers sur Oise. I know we did Monet's Garden first because of the crowd management, but it might have been better to end on the high of Monet's success rather than Van Goh's seeming failure. Very nice lunch -nice group and great guide. Would recommend highly
Guide was great, cleverly manoeuvring us around the garden areas to avoid the crowded areas. Got to see the sights of the paintings excellent. Lunch area good. Van Gogh footsteps of painting sites a real treat
Inn info very good in telling us about his life. It was good to be pickup and return home
Our guide, Andre, was really excellent. Very knowledgeable and engaging. The Auvers sur Oise part was a wonderful tour, but people should know that parts of it are not suitable for travelers with mobility issues because some of the walking parts are long and on difficult terrain.
Fantastic tour. Gregory our guide was wonderful. Leaned so much about impressionism. Had a great lunch at a lovely place. Van Gogh's grave and getting to sit where he painted the church was amazing. Giverny is so picturesque.I know this is expensive but it was worth it. We had a great group of 8 folks... wonderful day
Our guide, Gregory, was fantastic. This is a terrific way to spend a day outside Paris. We arrived at Giverny Sunday mid-morning, before too many people arrived. We stopped for a great lunch at a charming restaurant in the countryside and continued on to Auvers sur Oise. No crowds there, but the visit to Van Gogh's grave and his room above the tavern add so much to the understanding of his last days. I would highly recommend.
Full of interest and relevant content - excellent tour guide
Lunch in an excellent setting but meal average
My wife and I enjoyed the tour and were impressed by the professional and efficient service provided by the
The gardens were spectacular. The weather unfortunately did not corporate but this was beyond anyone's control.
We will certainly consider using Viator again.
Cannot find a flaw. The tour guide was personable, knowledgeable, skillfully switched among three languages, the food at lunch was wonderful and of course, both Giverny and Auvers sur L'Oise terrific. The slide show at Auvers was beautifully done and the special exhibit at the museum at Giverny was gorgeous.
This was a FABULOUS day. I would recommend it to anyone, and it is well worth the money to visit both locations in a small (v. large) group. The lunch location was beautiful, and I enjoyed the wine with the meal. The trip well paced, and I felt that there was just enough time to take it all in at each spot. Impressionist art lovers should NOT miss this trip, even if you have only a few days in Paris.
Brilliant and highly personable tour guide - Andre. All most enjoyable, particularly the afternoon Auvers sur Oise part. Lunch was delightful. Pity that Giverny has become a very busy (over crowded, maybe) theme park, but pleased to have seen it..
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS TOUR!!! The tour guide, Celine, was absolutely fabulous! Wish you could clone her!!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Giverny and Auvers sur Oise. Our tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and informative. We were provided just the right amount of information. She was quite patient in handling the many questions of an inquisitive passenger.The tour was kept on a reasonable schedule.
