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!

Wonderful tour to Giverny. I have wanted to see the water lilies for a very long time, and, despite the rain, was not disappointed. I walked along the path, absolutely enthralled, and did not want to leave. Monet's house was also amazing. We had lunch at a lovely inn and then drove to Auvers sur Oise to learn about the last days of Vincent Van Gogh. Our guide was excellent and made both of these places come alive. What a wonderful day!

Fred was a fun driver/guide and we enjoyed our visit to Monet's garden, though it was very crowded in the height of summer. We also were surprised to visit van Gogh's rooms, where he died, on the 125th anniversary of his death. Fred took us to visit his grave as well. Lunch was very nice, though a bit slow to be served, but Fred didn't rush us. We had a great day.

The tour was beyond expectations. Paul, our drive and guide, was outstanding, friendly, courteous and his knowledge of Monet and Van Gogh and the history of Giverny and Auvers sur Oise were so in-depth. I learned more than I could have expected from him. And the lunch was wonderful. Charming restaurant and excellent food. The tour could not have been better . . . the weather even cooperated!

THE BEST!!!! Loved this excursion. Started off with th most delightful and informative guide Louis. Very knowledgeable. Small van with 8 people total. Walked through the very long line at Giverny and had a wonderful time. The house and his life are as exquisite as the garden take the time to wait. Then drove to a lovely mill were the most charming three course lunch was laid out with wine. Headed off to Auvers sur Oise after wards to a most tragic part but still beautiful. TO hear about the short tortured life of Van Gogh. Traveled to his gravesite and heard about his last days. Tour of the Inn is also lovely where he stayed and the movie was very informative. Thank you Definatley one of my faves during our trip.

This was a wonderful trip. It was a great way to get out of the city for the day into the very lovely Normandy countryside. Our guide, Manuel, was awesome. He was a great driver through the crazy Parisian traffic and was even able to book a late-day appointment with a dentist back in Paris for one of the tour members who broke a tooth during the trip. During our ride to Giverny, he gave our group of 7 a non-stop commentary in both English and Portugues about Monet, Paris of the 1800s and today and the French countryside. He even through in a few 'extras' for us--I won't spoil it unless you are lucky enough to get him as your guide. This guy has to be the hardest working tour guide in Paris!
The Monet gardens were wonderful, made even better by getting there early with our small group. Since we beat the big busses, we had a much quieter moment to tour for the first half hour or so.
The lunch at the Moulin de Fourges was wonderful. The setting was truly idyllic.
Auvers-sur-Oise is moderately interesting, but our guide set our expectations appropriately. It certainly would not be worth a trip on its own, but coupled with Giverny was worth seeing.
All in all, it was a great day and this was definitely the way to do it.

This was a Bucket List thing for me and it was everything I thought it would be!! Our driver Louie was so kind as to pick us up right outside the door to our apartment we rented. We had two Australian women and a father and daughter from CA with us. It was a wonderful day!! Thank you Louie!!

This was the highlight of our Parisian vacation. David, our tour guide, picked us up on time and provided wonderful commentary on the two hour drive to Giverny. After giving the group an overview of the gardens and house, he let us tour at our own pace for two hours. Afterwards, he drove us about 15 minutes away to Le Moulin de Fourges for a delicious three-course lunch only issue was tour groups were seated upstairs in a very warm room and not outside under the canopy. After lunch we headed to Auvers sir Oise where we learned about Van Gogh. David's love of both artists was apparent in his commentaries and his insights gave me a greater appreciation of the artists. Giverny was a bucket list item for me and it didn't disappoint. I highly recommend this tour and hope you get David as your guide.
