well organised on time plenty of time to view highlights pleasant knowledgable driver
An excellent afternoon trip to Giverney and the Garden. Picked up from the hotel early afternoon and a fast route to Giverney with our Guide and driver Nicholas providing information about Giverney and Monet and the gardens on the way. Just four of us on the tour that afternoon, which was a nice small group and we all stayed together to look around the gardens and when in Giverney. When we arrived the place was busy but Nicholas dealt with all the entrance requirements quickly and calmly and had given us useful guidance on the best way to see the gardens and exactly where to meet at the end of the afternoon. The gardens were wonderful - even better that I had expected - and although very busy there was still a calmness to appreciate this rather special place. It was a fairly quick look around the house and a brief look around the gallery in Giverney. Our group had stopped for refershments after the gardens and the house so could have had more time in the gallery. As we left Giverney Nicholas asked if anyone was in a hurry to get back to Paris. As no one was he drove us back through the countryside and villages pointing out many things along the way. This was a very well organised and relaxed and enjoyable trip and Nicholas could not have been a better Guide - would definitely do it again and certainly recommend it to anyone.
This was an excellent tour for our family of 5- with three children under 6! We had our nanny with us to help and everything was perfect. Our driver Pamela was spike perfect English and she was very friendly and had a great amount of knowledge about Monet and the area. A perfect day!
Beautiful tour, the gardens are amazing! The only downside is not having enough time at M.onet's house, I think too much time was spent at the museum.
Manuel offered a FABULOUS tour-very knowledgeable-enthusiastc, and accomodating-it could not have been better! And the Gardens have been on my bucket list for some time now! This small group experience was the way to go-have a LOT of gardening friends and I WILL talk it up!
Great half-day tour. Our guide was engaging and friendly. We had intentionally visited the Orsay and Orangerie museums prior to the tour. Going to Giverny to stand in Monet's garden where he painted his Water Lily paintings was a wonderful experience.
We had a wonderful trip to Giverny. Our driver Magnus pick us up at our apartment in a spotless comfortable van and the short drive was very pleasant. We spent plenty of time in both the water gardens and toured Monet's home and studio, then walked to an impressionist exhibit that was beautiful with many of the American impressionist painters. It was the icing on the cake. Loved the tour. It was great!!!
The weather was great, the garden superb and our guide Claudio really looked after us.
We all enjoyed our trip back to Paris via the countryside. Would recommend this wo all travellers.
What a wonderful place to visit , excellent guide- knowledgeable and fun
Our trip to Giverny and Monet's guardian could not have been nicer. Our driver was friendly and punctual. He was also most helpful when we got to Giverny, giving very clear information about what there was to see as well as the time and place we should meet him for the return trip to Paris. We very much enjoyed the experience!
My trip to Giverny, provided by Viator was everything I could have hoped for. The driver was on time, picked us up at our hotel as previously arranged, got us to Giverny without any problems and gave us insight to our surroundings on the way there and back. Giverny itself was amazing. The gardens were so beautiful and well kept, and the colors were enough to inspire anyone to paint, photograph and create, whether possessed with talent or not.
There were many crowds of people there the day we went, which was a little overwhelming. But everyone behaved and the flow of people throughout the gardens and the house was manageable. Our tour was in the afternoon, from a perspective of crowd control, it might be better to book in the morning.
Thank you Viator for a lovely day.
