Monet's Garden Bike Tour from Paris

1. Monet's Garden Bike Tour from Paris

Begin this full-day Monet bike tour with a scenic coach journey through the spectacular wheat and sunflower fields of Normandy. Speed by the lazy Seine River, and stop off at the village of Vernon. Here, you will visit the charming farmers' market to buy picnic supplies. Then, hop-on your bike and pedal across the river to a beautiful park along the banks of the Seine. After lunch, enjoy a relaxing 3-mile (5-kilometer) ride down bike paths to the village of Giverny. Cruise past Giverny Church and its cemetery, which contains graves of local citizens dating back to the 17th Century, as well as British soldiers from World War 2, and even Monet himself buried within his family's vault. Pass Hotel Baudy, where Impressionist painters Manet and Renoir used to paint. You will then arrive at the highlight of the day, Monet's Garden. Spend about 90 minutes exploring the gardens and house, including the famous water lily pond where some of his most famous works originated. Additionally, you can explore the village of Giverny, which boasts the American Museum of Art, located across the street from Monet's Gardens, as well as numerous cafés and small streets begging to be discovered.

It was very nice and relaxed. The garden and house can be quite crowded though. Would probably go again on a weekday instead of weekend. Our guide was cool, I just did not expect there to be so much info while we were on the bus. My wife found it all very interesting, I preferred sleeping. The bike tour, market in Vernon, and picnic by the Seine were great, and Monet's house and garden were very beautiful and far larger than I expected.

The tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and experienced with the subject matter and the area we were exploring. The tour overall was organized and well worth the money. We thoroughly enjoyed the market shopping, picnic lunch, bike riding and of course the spectacular Monet property, which is filled with so many beautiful flowers that really bring his paintings to life! Thanks for a great experience!

This ride is excellent. You visit charming places and reach areas that you normally do not see in other types of transport. The super comfortable tour, the guide always attentive and friendly. First you go to a super typical market, buy your supplies and start the bike ride to have a picnic next to a lake. Getting to Giverny like this makes this experience unique. Super recommended.

Very good trip. The guide was very friendly, we didn't see the time passing, he managed to alternate the informative parts with the little anecdotes which made the excursion very dynamic. The bike route suitable for everyone! We strongly recommend.

This was a wonderful adventure. Our guide Richard (From Cambridge) was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The local marché in Vernon was great to buy our picnic food. Monet garden was a bit crowded. Suggest starting your visit with the water garden.
