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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Viator booked this tour through a local company. This review is for the small group tour only - it seems that the experience for people on the large bus tours is very different. I would highly recommend paying the extra money for the small group tour. Our group ended up being only 5 people.

Our guide was Laura and she did an excellent job of narrating our trip and recommending how we handle the 2+ hours we had on our own to see Monet's gardens, his house, and the museum next door (which housed a very worthwhile temporary exhibit of Brussels Impressionists - we both loved it).
Because none of us had any early evening plans back in Paris, Laura offered to take us on an extra scenic tour along the Seine before we connected with the expressway back into the city.
A very memorable day - well done, tour company and especially Laura!!!

Laura was a great guide and the gardens were gorgeous. Not too crowded either.
