Excellent. Driver (Louis) was knowledgeable and helpful. A very pleasant afternoon.
Enjoyable tour to a special place. Unfortunately at this time of year the crowds were somewhat overwhelming! Hotel pick up was appreciated as were interesting comments by the driver as we drove through Paris and countryside en route to Giverny.
Wonderful guide Laura brought to life Giverny and Claude Monet. She described the period of time and Monet's life as if it were today. We will definitely recommend this tour to our friends.
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.
We had a wonderful day with the guide giving us lots of background information. We were picked up on time and delivered back to our hotel at the end, which saved time on public transport. Giverny itself was fabulous even though it wasn't spring, and the grounds were a delight to behold. Monet's house was a veritable treasure chest and absolutely delightful. I strongly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paris.
Eric our driver was very knowledgable about the area and friendly, the van was comfortable and we loved Giverny. Having only 8 people was a plus ,
The tour was wonderful. Nothing but kind words for our guide Gregory. Exceeded my expectations. Giverny is well worth a visit.
The day was perfect.
Everything went to time.
We had ample time to visit the garden and also met up with very pleasant people on the trip.
The driver was extremely competent and knowledgeable
Many thanks for a great half day.
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!
