We had a wonderful few hours at Giverny. the gardens were in full bloom with gorgeous tulips and other spring flowers. The sun peeked through for us on what had been a slightly overcast day. We could have used more time to photograph both gardens and lily pond but we made the most of s]what we had.

This was a beautiful afternoon break from the city. The guide was informative and spoke English very well. I really enjoyed the gardens and seeing the house.

This was a wonderful tour. The guide was interesting. We had enough time to view Monet's house and gardens.

This trip gave a real insight to Monet's work and life. Really enjoyed the experience. We went early in the spring so there was not all the colour in the garden that would be there later in the season. However we did not need to push through the crowds that will come later either and we got the feel of gardens and some beautiful photos.

What a beautiful place. We took lots of photos and had a really great day.
As usual the Viator guide was lovely and knew all about the man and his work.

A must do for any art lover. You actually feel like you are stepping into Monet's paintings. Brilliant.

This was a fabulous tour and one I happily recommend. The journey to Giverney was great and once there it was enchanting. I would happily do this tour again in a different season, it was worth every cent paid and I highly recommend it if you enjoy lovely gardens and the history and ambience of another era.

I felt like I had walked into a painting! Such a beautiful place. Great commentary by guide on the way there and plenty of time to explore both the garden and the house.

My daughter and I enjoyed this afternoon tour on our two night visit to Paris. The coach trip to Normandy was scenic, comfortable and didn't take too long. Commentary by the tour guides was in both Spanish and English and was very informative. Once at the gardens we had plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, eat our picnic lunch, inspect Monet's cottage and take photos. It is a fair walk back to the bus parking area for those with mobility issues and the toilets were near the gift shop on the way out ( we actually didn't find them) Food was available in the township once you exited but not in the gardens themselves. Driving back to Paris along the Seine was beautiful, especially when the Eiffel Tower was about 100 metres away. We were readily able to catch the Metro back to our hotel as it was across the road from the tour office. A highly recommended tour!

Fantastic trip, bus comfortable and prompt, guides informative, destination more than I could have hoped for. If you have ever seen a Monet painting you have to see his garden, it is truly inspiring.
