Jessie was an exceptional guide, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and passionate about Art History and Monet. Both my husband and I, as well as our two daughters learned fascinating details about the planning and the execution of the famous Gardens. Most enjoyable and delightful experience, strongly recommended!

Was great to see Monet's garden and house in real life. During the tour much was told about his life in Giverny but also about the plant species. I found this an absolute addition to the experience. The tour was in a small group which was also very nice.

Jumping the queue was a great advantage. Our guide gave us a good insight into the life of Monet and the background to his development of the gardens. A picturesque location

Lovely guide met us outside the house and took us to a side entrance where we entered the gardens without queuing. Entertaining introduction to Monet and his work.

Having our guide provided context and insight we would not have had form a book. Easy access. We were late but our guide helped us catch up.
