Full description
Escape the busy city and visit the enchanting home and gardens of the famous impressionist painter Claude Monet. Stroll through the beautifully landscaped gardens with your knowledgeable guide and learn more about the flora as well as the importance of the gardens in Monet's paintings.  Meet with your small group (max. 9 people) and your guide before entering the gardens. First, visit the water garden with the water lilies that inspired many of his paintings and then the 'Clos Normand'. Your guide will point out different species of flowers and features of the garden. As you wander through the gardens and visit Monet's house also learn more about Claude Monet's life, and why he became the master of impressionism.  At the end of the tour, you can stay longer to stroll on your own or take a look in the big gift shop before you exit. From early spring till the first days of November, Monet's gardens are a fairy of colors and fragrances. Feel free to ask your guide about the picturesque village of Giverny and what more there is to see.

We are from Quebec, and we were sincerely won over by our guided tour by one of your guides, Ms. Brigitte B., a very interesting and highly qualified guide, in addition to being very friendly and truly professional! This was my fifth visit and I still learned new things. A guided tour is a must for Monet's gardens. A huge thank you once again to Mrs. Brigitte B. for her kindness.

Our tour guide was very informative and friendly. She took pictures of our group which was appreciated. The place was very full of visitors and schoolchildren, so it was hard to maneuver around the place. The Monet house was lovely, but the pond garden was not in its fullest beauty when we visited. The water was quite muddy and only a couple of water lilies were in bloom in mid-June. The gardens were nice, and our guide knew the names of many of the flowers.

The tour was small, very interesting and informative. However, this does not rule out the fact that a large number of people are there. In principle, it would be desirable for the French state to set a maximum number of visitors per day. That would certainly be more pleasant for everyone involved, but has nothing to do with Travel Guide. Overall, Giverny is a wonderful place.
