Absolutely luved this bike tour and was one of our most favourite tours we have done. We had a perfect day, great little train trip, good to buy fresh food for lunch from the markets and enjoy on the banks of the river. The bike ride to Monets Garden was easy even for those that have not riden a bike for some time. You do however need to know how to ride a bike. Our tour guide was wonderful very helpful and friendly and chatted with all the group. Definitely recommend.
Absolutely the best! We had such a fun, peaceful, relaxing and interesting day. Anna our guide was a delightful, American girl who constantly looked after everyone to the best of her ability. The picnic beside the river was special and the bike ride to Monet's Garden was delightful.
Our trip to Giverny and Monet's Garden was one of the highlights of our Paris vacation! Our tour guide, Annya, was excellent and made the trip informative, safe and FUN! We were fortunate to be in Vernon on market day and able to buy our lunch provisions from local vendors before heading to a beautiful overlook on the Seine River for our picnic lunch. Our relatively easy ride to Giverny gave us a glimpse of the beautiful French countryside and lovely villages along the route. Even though we were there at the end of September, Monet's garden was still beautiful with many flowers still in boom. Great trip overall!
The guide and tour were great! We really enjoyed the cycling, picnic and tour. Monet's home/garden was the highlight of my trip. And no waiting in long lines!!Highly recommend.
Definately one of the highlights of my 6 weeks away. A fantastic day from start to finish, the high light being stopping at the market for food and picnic on the river. Told so many people about it on the rest of my trip.
A fantastic day out riding at a leisurely pace to Giverney from Vernon. The picnic on the River Seine by the Old Mill on the broken bridge in Vernon was very relaxing. Monet's house and garden were worth seeing and the bike ride was not too arduous. Highly recommend this tour.
Had a great day pete the guide was excellent could not have asked for more
Anya, our guide, was the star of the show. Helpful, knowledgeable, fun and kind, she was just the best.
The trip is magnificent, and you need to make sure you chose a day when the market is on, as it really does add another element.
he gardens are enchanting, if quite crowded. Just enjoy the scenery and atmosphere. You will love it.
Cycling through the French country side was magical.
Kit, our guide was terrific and very knowledgeable about art and art history. We enjoyed his banter, the picnic, the bike ride, and, of course the gardens. Vernon was the surprise package and worth the trip alone. We were lucky to have perfect weather.
I highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide was amazing and he was a wealth of knowledge. It was a lot of fun and we learned so much!!
Fantastic trip to Giverny . Kit our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgable, entertaining a great guide. Enjoyed the picnic and the garden.
A great day! Our guide,Drew, was knowledgeable and passionate about history and art. Very fun and interesting.
We had a fantastic day dispite the wet weather. It also meant the gardens weren't overcrowded and the garden sparkled in the rain. We could still picnic beside the river eat our baguette and drink some wine. Kit was an book of knowledge and gave us some amazing insights into art and history.
The bike tour to Giverny was one of the highlights of our Europe trip. As a couple in our mid-fifties we were initially worried about whether we would be fit enough to make the distance, but we did and it was a fantastic experience (despite being a very hot day). We enjoyed meeting other travellers and sharing information. Our tour guide was friendly, encouraging and full of interesting and helpful information. It was the perfect way to experience Monet's garden.
This was so much fun! Our guide had a wide knowledge of the area and of Monet and his family. We very much enjoyed hearing the stories and the little extras he added, particularly the church cemetery that we would not have found in our own. We loved it and it will be a very memorable part of our trip!
This was the highlight of our six week vacation in Europe! If you can ride a bike you have to take this tour! The tour guides were friendly and informative. The 5 km ride goes over and along the Seine. And you skip the line to go to the water garden! FABULOUS!!!
Bike tour operators organise a very good day trip.Costi our guide is fun, knowledgeable and very patient. Monet's Garden was everything we expected, beautiful! Thoroughly recommend.
Kit was a great guide. Gave excellent info. on how to fill our picnic basket at the market. So easy for non-French speakers. The ride was incredible-what beautiful country! Monet's house and garden are worth a trip back.
Amazing trip. One of the highlights of our trip to Paris. Kit was a fabulous guide! He made the trip! The gardens were beautiful. Now, when I look at a Monet painting I can imagine where he was sitting in the garden. The bike ride was fun and easy. Kit was extremely well informed about art and spent time during our picnic and on the train enthusiastically educating us. A lovely, peaceful way to spend a day away from the hustle and bustle of Paris
Had a great day. Shame about the train strike and limited time ......the guides were excellent and made up for it. The gardens were wonderful.
This tour is fantastic. Our guide was fun to be with, and was able to talk about all aspects of the towns of Vernon and Giverny, and of course the life and times of Claude Monet. The picnic was very enjoyable, especially selecting foods from the many small specialty shops in Vernon. The picnic site is beautiful, right on the bank of the river with great views. The bikes were in good shape and easy to maneuver, the bike ride was easy and fun.
This was a very fun tour, even in the rain! Pete, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable, nice and caring. He made the tour the success that it was. The bike was roundtrip and fun, but if you are unsure about riding for a period of time, this tour may not be for you. I am not in the greatest shape but could handle this tour. I would definitely consider doing this again.
