What You Can Expect

Giverny and Monet's Garden Bike Tour

Giverny and Monet's Garden Bike Tour

Once in Vernon visit the charming farmers' market to buy picnic supplies. You'll then hop on your bike and pedal across the river to a beautiful park along the banks of the Seine for lunch. At lunch you can also sample the local's favorite drink: cidre.

It will then be time for your relaxing 5 kilometer (3 miles) ride down the bike path to the village of Giverny and the world-famous gardens of Claude Monet. Cruise past the Giverny church and its cemetery containing graves of local citizens dating back to the 17th century, British soldiers from World War II and even Monet himself buried within his family's vault. You will pass the Hotel Baudy, where Impressionists Manet and Renoir used to paint.

Shortly you will arrive at the highlight of the day - Monet's Garden

Spend about 1.5 hours enjoying Monet's gardens, his house and the famous water lily pond where some of his most famous works originated. Be sure to bring your camera and plenty of film! Additionally, the village of Giverny offers you the American Museum of Art (across the street from Monet's Gardens), numerous cafes and small streets begging to be explored.

We loved this tour. The train trip was lovely and relaxing, the bike ride easy and the market place we were taken to to get provisions for our picnic was delightful. We loved that we could take our own time around Monet's house and gardens. Would highly recommend this tour.

This was truly an amazing tour. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys the outdoors. The trip itself was excellent. We rode bikes in a beautiful French country side. We shopped for food to have a picnic which was an amazing experience. The topper was walking around Monet's garden. Our guide, Kit, was another reason this tour was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable and just a fun guy to talk to and learn from. If you have the time because it was an 8 to 9 hour tour, please sign up for this one.
