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.

Our guide, Daniele, was very interesting and friendly. He gave us a lot of info about Impressionism, and the picnic was fun. The bike tour was interesting going through the area and he couldn't have been better as a guide. He interacted with us, gave us plenty of time at the mart outside to get our food for the picnic, and plenty of time to be at the Gardens of Giverny. You are on your own for the gardens, but that is fine because you can spend as much time as you want doing what you like. The small group was nice because you could hear everything he was saying. The biking was just long enough. This was everything the tour says it will be. Will definitely do more Viator tours!

Highlight of our Paris trip! Such an enchanting and beautiful day trip. The village where Monet lived is everything one would imagine and much much more. You feel as though you are in a postcard. Couldn't recommend this tour more. Also had a great tour guide, named Owen.

From Trip Advisor- Robin the Tour Guide Made the Giverny and Monet's Garden Bike Tour Awesome! We booked the Monet and Giverny bike tour through Viator on short notice without issue. We traveled as a family of 4 with a 10 and 13 year old. The entire trip was as described on the voucher. At 9:45 the day of the tour we met our awesome tour guide Robin who was full of knowledge and energy at the train station on the platform. After a short train ride 45 minutes we arrived in Giverny to gather our picnic supplies and bikes. This is a locals town and the shops are fantastic and reasonably priced. I was happy we were given the option to pick our own food and interact with the locals while shopping. We were given about 30- 40 minutes to gather our supplies and then we departed on a short 10 minute ride where sat at edge of the Seine to enjoy our lunch. We jumped on the bikes after lunch and rode 15- 20 minutes to Monets gardens. We used a side entrance to the garden which jumped the line and were given 2 hours to explore. In my opinion 2 hours was plenty of time and allowed us to sit at a café for a bit prior to our ride back. My only complaint was the chain on my 10 year olds bike popped off a few times but with a wrench and basic bike knowledge we were able to fix the issue. Cheers!
