Great fun. Lots of good info on Monet. The bike ride was good, although it rained almost the whole way there and back. Monet's gardens are fabulous, in full bloom. The house was also spectacular. Johnny, our guide was fun and very knowlegable.
I really enjoyed the tour, stopping at the market for picnic lunch and the gardens were amazing. We had plenty of flexibility but not enough to get lost!
We have an excellent experience. The transport to Vernon was comfortable and scenic. We enjoyed the visit to the city market to get lunch provisions and we had a delightful picnic at the most scenic spot on the Seine River and our bikes were good and the bike ride was easy. Our guide, Kit, was extremely knowledgeable about the area and particularly about art and architecture. We learned so much from him which was helpful in understanding Monet and his Impressionist colleagues. He was top of the line, superior. It is an experience I will recommend to many.
This tour was amazing. Our guide, Nick, was terrific. We enjoyed the biking, we lived stopping in m
Excellent adventure. Made the travel to Giverny a no thinking process - just hopped on the bus with an excellent guides Kit from Fat Tire and his associate Malcom--They took such great care of all of us and gave details on what to do in the market when purchasing goodies for lunch -- just an overall enjoyable time on the whole trip including the bikes. We have two children with us and they LOVED it as well.
Valentine was wonderful. His knowledge was amazing. He showed a lot of patience with my daughter who was nervous when riding her bike in traffic. We highly recommend this tour and him as a guide.
This was a sensational trip. We had a wonderful host Valentine who had an extensive knowledge base that was shared with enthusiasm. In fact, it was wonderful to be around someone who obviously had a love for his job, the history of France, and cheese! The gardens were spectacular and allowed for many, many wonderful photo opportunities. What a day!
An excellent day - ably guided by Kit, who was sensational, knowledgable, attentive and enthusiastic throughout. Great markets, pretty ride through the town and along the river - then the magnificent gardens - with plenty of time to explore. Would thoroughly recommend.
My mom and I had a great time on this trip even biking in the rain! Highly recommend.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. The gardens were spectacular and there was plenty of time to do wander around and enjoy.
Absolutely fabulous. The knowledge of our guide Kit was amazing. Even the rain at the end couldn't take away the enjoyment of the whole day.
One day i will never forget. Our tour guide Kit was a walking encyclopaedia of art, so passionate with a wonderful sense of humour. When back in Paris we will do this tour again, we loved it.
Had a great time, beautiful gardens and Kit was a enthusiastic, entertaining guide.
Fantastic day. One of the best. Loved seeing Monets garden, the cycling there and lunch on the river bank.
Would highly recommend this as the way to visit Monets garden.
Great way to visit Monet's Garden. Picnic on the banks of the Seine sampling local produce bought at markets at Vernon followed by a short bike ride to Giverny. Would highly recommend this tour.
The trip was delightful. Well organized. Our guide was knowledgeable and responsive. The group size was quite manageable. Seeing Giverny one day, then seeing some Monet and other Impressionist paintings the next two days in Paris is quite a treat. Highly recommended.
Loved our bike tour, one of our highlights. Our guide Kit was full of knowledge and happy to share it. The trip to the market was amazing bought way too much food n cider. So glad we did our tour on a Saturday to experience the market and locals. Thanks for a brilliant day.
If you're going to Giverny, this is definitely the way to do it. Our guide, Alexandria, was fantastic, the bicycles were much better than I expected, the ride was very easy, and it was great to admire the countryside where Monet painted on the way there.
The leisurely picnic on the banks of the Seine with locally produced food was a big bonus.
This was an excellent tour. Our guide, Kit, was very entertaining and knowledgable about art and France history. That's right. On our way to Giverny by train, he gave us a very animated history lecture and how art/painting styles were affected. The bike ride was bee pleasant through the small town but there were points during the ride where you have to merge with traffic, as that is always risky. Even though bikes have the right of way, always remember, right of way is given not taken, so be careful.
During the bike ride, we stopped at a cute little area of the town to buy some picnic items and had lunch underneath a shaded park by the river. While we were eating, Kit talked some more about art. Very interesting and the picnicking idea was a delightful addition to this tour. The Monet garden was also great the flowers were amazing photo opts. His house was nice, a quick walk-thru was all we needed. We were more impressed by the gardens.
This tour was provided by fat tires tour and they or specifically, Kit, did an excellent job giving us a tour of Giverny.
Absolutely top tour. The bike riding required only moderate skill and was a heap of fun. Our guide Thomas was so much fun and gave me a new found interest in impressionism. Highly recommended!
Well organised trip,informative guides whom filled in the missing knowledge of the area and the Impressionist era of painting.Bikes were very good,felt safe on the few occasions we were on the road.Take the tour.
