Great tour if you are a fan of Monet and Van Gogh. Lunch was delight.
This tour was amazing!
Our tour began outside our hotel at the appointed time. Our guide and van driver for the day, Manuel, was punctual, courteous, and amazingly informative. Even though we had been to Paris several times over the years, my only regret as we wound through the busy city traffic and out through the countryside en route to Giverny, was that I had not brought pen and paper to take notes, so interesting was Manuel's commentary. Monet's house and gardens, the village and the museum were well worth the visit. Then it was on to a country inn for lunch which was excellent. Then after a short walk around the inn after lunch, we drove to Auvers sur Oise, the village where van Gogh made his last paintings and also visited the house where he lived his last few very productive months. It was a day well spent and Manual was a superb guide in all respects and his efforts made the day most memorable.
Giverny and Auvers dur Oise have been on my Bucket List for a long time. This trip did not disappoint...it was excellent!! Celine, our guide, picked us up at the hotel exactly as planned on time. She was an wonderful host and her passion for the artists made the trip out to our first stop at Giverny go quickly as we talked about the lives of Van Gogh and Monet. The route to Giverny is through some beautiful French countryside which was a nice change from the noise and energy of Paris. After our visit to Giverny and lunch at the postcard-scenic Moulin de Fourges, we made the short drive to Auvers sur Oise. The village and the Auberge Rouvx with Van Gogh's room seemed like we stepped back into the 1890's. It was so nice to see that the area respects Van Gogh's life here but it has not become a tourist mecca of souvenirs shops and postcards. We loved this tour and could easily do it again on a future trip.
This was a fabulous day in the french countryside. My favorite tour! Excellent guide.
Totally amazing day with Gregory our guide..... Not only was Gregory full of great information and wit, he was also a very wonderful and experienced driver....This day trip was one of the highlights of our 3 week stay in Paris.....we highly recommend it!! We learned much about the lives of Van Gogh and Monet and it was exciting to see the very places they lived and painted....
Herbert, our tour guide for the day, was great! He was very knowledgeable, personable, in charge, and had a great sense of humor. It was fascinating to stand in the places where some of the world's great Impressionist paintings were painted.
This is a great though expensive tour. We were lucky to get a very good guide, Andre. He managed to tell lots of tiny details of life and work of the artists that are difficult to find in literature. Thank you Andre for a wonderful day!
Very organized, small group, and friendly service.
Gregory the guide had so much information to share, this made the trip so much more interesting.
