Great tour if you are a fan of Monet and Van Gogh. Lunch was delight.
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!
Gregory the guide had so much information to share, this made the trip so much more interesting.
The day began with us making our way to Giverny to visit the home and gardens of Monet. From there it was on to Fourges where we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Moulin de Fourges. After lunch we continued on to Auvers-sur- Oise. In Auvers we visited Auberge Ravoux, the inn where Van Gogh died. We walked the footsteps Van Gogh walked, visiting the sites of some of his works. We saw the gravesite that is his final resting place, next to his brother. Our day ended with our guide, Abib driving us back to Paris. Abib was courteous and friendly. He was able to provide excellent commentary to help us make the most of our trip. Definitely a highlight of our visit!
Gregory was an excellent driver of our tour van and knowledgeable tour guide! He was Lots of fun and gave us all the information and history of Claude Monet's family and life and his home in Giverny and the Japanese gardens. He didn't rush us through -he let us take our time and enjoy the gardens. We had a delicious lunch at Moulins de Fourges -nestled beside the stream and beautiful flower gardens. Then we drove to Auvers-sur-Oise to see where Vincent Van Gogh spent the last few months of his life and the cemetary where he and his brother Theo are buried together. It was an amazing tour- and very well done! So thrilled that we were a part of this tour. It was a dream come true. Thank you Gregory! Pick up and drop off at the apartment we stayed at was easy and much appreciated! What a wonderful day! I would recommend this tour to everyone
One of our favourite days in Paris. If you love Monet and Van Gogh's art, then this is a must.

We really enjoyed our small group tour. Our group was only the 4 of us so we had our own private guide who was excellent. The pace of the trip was good, the instruction from our guide was interesting and easy to understand, the food was good, and the overall experience of our day was excellent.
As the mom in our family, it and #39;s not often that I have the luxury of leaving trip details to someone else! We were picked up by our courteous driver who relayed important information about our destination in perfect English and delivered us safely to our doorstep at the end of our tour A real treat!
Awesome tour and our guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. We would recommend thus tour to anyone
Our tour guide, Jean, did an outstanding job of pointing out important sights and not being as verbose as most tour guides can be. Nice man with years of experience. Highly recommend.
Our guide -- Fred --- was great. This tour would be good with anyone but he made it great. Recommended.
We have visited Paris previously, but this time travelling with our granddaughter a keen art enthusiast so this day trip was perfect! Very well organised day, excellent guide, lovely lunch.
Totally relaxing and wonderful way to spend a day. Timing was great, the guide was fantastic, and the nature was wonderful after three weeks in NYC and Paris. So nice to relax and not have to make any decisions!
We had a wonderful trip to Giverny with our guide Fred on Saturday, September 26- he was personable, funny and very knowledgeable - their were eight of us on the trip and it was a very congenial group - Fortunately it was a day of beautiful weather - but the gardens would be beautiful at any time - I was traveling with a friend who spoke french and she enjoyed talking with our guide Fred - it really was a great day and I would highly recommend as a day trip from Paris!!!
Monet's garden was absolutely beautiful, a riot of colour with masses of flowers and greenery! We had a great day with Ricardo entertaining us along the way. The lunch at the mill was very high quality and very pleasant company. Lastly, we had a sunny afternoon in Auvers Sur Oise where we felt immersed in the world of Vincent Van Gogh. My favourite day of my whole holiday!
