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.
Highly recommended. See something outside the city that you've never seen before. Beautiful, picturesque sites in every direction. Tour guides are great!
Wonderful Day! Our tour guide, Johnny, was very knowledgeable of the city of Giverny and history of Monet. He gave us an informative talk on the train on the way to Giverny, and was always eager to answer questions. Despite a train strike that delayed us almost an hour, we had plenty of time to shop for our lunch at the local farmer's market, eat lunch along the Seine, and explore Monet's house and garden. We were given great suggestions on where to purchase the ingredients for our lunch and the bikes had baskets to carry the lunch to the picnic spot.
It was a fantastic day, combining food, wine, cycling, art, nature, picnic by the river and a brilliant guide who knew his history about the impressionist artists and in particular Monet. I highly recommend this tour.
The tour was great! It was very nice to be with English speaking people after navigating Paris as a single non-french speaker. Travel was easy, guide ( I had the New Zealand one) was knowledgeable and friendly, bikes were fun and Monet's garden was surpurb! It was wonderful to have someone else plan the details, and to just be able to go and enjoy it!
Everything about this full day tour was enjoyable. Meeting the group at Gare Saint-Lazare was a breeze, train ride pleasant, biking riding and picnic were both fun. And of course the gardens and house were lovely. There was plenty of time at each stage, you didn't feel rushed and at the end of the day had an experience to remember.
This was an excellent tour with Anya who made it a smooth ride both on train and bike. Being Spring the garden was beautiful but a lot of crowds but Anya managed to get us in without too much fuss. The picnic lunch was a highlight.
