What You Can Expect

Giverny and Monet's Garden Small Group Day Trip from Paris

Giverny gardens, France

Your afternoon tour to Giverny will take you through the Normandy countryside to the charming country village of Giverny, where Monet lived with his family from 1883 until his death in 1926. It was here in Giverny that Monet indulged his love of nature, in his painting, his gardening and his photography. You'll be able to stroll through Monet's exquisite gardens and admire the water-lily pond and famous Japanese bridge which featured in his masterpieces. Independently explore the house and gardens to get a real feel for how Monet lived and what provided the inspiration to his works.

The final stop on your artists' tour before returning to Paris is a visit to the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny. The museum houses a number of works by American painters who traveled to Giverny to meet Claude Monet and draw inspiration from his Impressionist techniques.

We had a wonderful trip to Giverny. Our driver/guide gave us lots of interesting information throughout our drive to Giverny. We had plenty of time to tour the gardens and house. Thank you!

This was a wonderful excursion. The downside was that we did not have enough time at Giverny and also that we were the first to be picked up and last to be dropped off, so we had a long time in the car. I would suggest that the first to be picked up be the first to be dropped off.
Otherwise, the outing was very enjoyable.

Driver was very polite, friendly and informative. He provided info and facts both to and from the tour sight. He also suggested a route we follow so that we saw all we should see while on the tour of the gardens, house, galleries, etc. Van was comfortable and clean.
