The Giverny and Monet's Garden Bike Tour was the highlight of our trip to Paris. It was so much fun! Not only did we get to share our picnic lunch with the friendly ducks and geese along the Seine, but we got some exercise too! But, what made the tour was our guide Kit. He was fantastic. As an art history major and artist in his own right, he was very knowledgeable about the Impressionist movement in Paris and about Monet and his contemporaries. His enthusiasm and passion for art was inspiring. He also took great care to make sure everyone was safe and enjoying their day. Good food, good learning and good exercise, what could be better than that?

This was one of our best tours during our stay in Paris. Our British Guide Pete was excellent, informative, and had a great sense of humour. The bike ride was easy and fun. We enjoyed the picnic lunch and the local food from the town of Vernon (including Pete's recommendation of the cider). Monet's gardens were stunningly beautiful and beyond my expectations as I had wanted to visit them for many years. We had light rain on and off that day, but the ambient light in the garden was perfect for photography. As well the gardens were not exceptionally busy with crowds as it was midweek. All in all, this tour is highly recommended.

This truly was the highlight of our trip to Paris. Kit was an amazing guide with his wealth of knowledge on art history. The day was beautiful, our bikes perfect, the picnic delicious, and then Monet. M. Holt

The tour was very nice. We had a lovely picnic lunch and our guide Kit was very knowledgeable and passionate about art. The bike tour itself is a bit laborious, so that should be taken into consideration for older folks, or anyone with health problems. But my husband and I LOVED it.

A great tour and good value. Giverny was beautiful but it was Kit, our guide who made it an excellent experience.

My daughter and I were very happy we took this trip. Our guide was a delight, and took good care of us. I hadn't been on a bike in a long time, but I did fine. Monet's garden is not to be believed! The tour was a wonderful change of pace.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The combination of beautiful weather, great train travel, good excercise and the "gardens" made for great memories. However it was the INCREDIBLE tour guide that puts it at the top of the list of "favorite" part of the trip!! Thanks.

Excellent guide and tour. We are in our 70's and were able to do the bike ride without a problem.

A perfect day. Guide met us at train station in Paris. Dave from Fat Tire led us on a fun day. Good food purchased from the open-air market, a lovely picnic on the Seine, a fun bike ride, and then to Giverny. So beautiful. Highly recommend this tour. 13 year old loved it.
