What people are saying about Giverny

This was a fabulous trip! You definitely need a full day to do everything and not feel rushed. Take your time in Monet’s gardens but don’t be late for lunch. The museum is smaller than you think it will be, so take some time to sit in its gardens and explore the village.

Our guide told was so knowledgeable and had such a beautiful perspective of the art and artists at the Picasso Museum. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to all who come to Paris. It was my favorite tour so far.

We loved it and the guide ( Maria, Brazilian) was very good!

The only thing we needed was more time at Giverny. Lunch at Moulin des Fourges was very good, great quality, very diligent and friendly staff.

We had a wonderful day with Michelle with showers and sunshine. It was a pleasant day.

Excellent experience - we had a great day. Well worth the price all around!
