Antoine was excellent! Very friendly and professional. We had a small group, 5 people which was nice. We went on January 3rd, and in the morning it was pretty empty which was wonderful!! It’s truly an astounding sight to see. However around 2- the crowds came and its very narrow, hard to walk, the restaurants filled up. Antoine said this was considered slow! He said in busy season- everyone marches slowlyyyy up the narrow street all bottle necking. If you get anxiety in crowds or small spaces, I would only go in a slow season. I’m so glad we got to experience it though. My favorite part was walking up to it, so surreal. Couldn’t put my camera down. Oh! To get away from the crowds, navigate to the wall ramparts, the walk is relatively empty and peaceful. The crepe place recommended to us by a friend “la sirene”, a hidden gem...not so hidden anymore. It’s upstairs from a souvineer shop with a big line. Overall lovely tour. Antoine was great!!! Thank you thank you !!!!
Nina was an excellent guide, she led us through the garden and house giving us the most important information about the place and the artist. Monet became real in front of our eyes and his artwork meaningful. Nina also gave us a tour of the cemetery where Monet’s family tomb is located. This gave us an opportunity to understand family ties and the connection the Monets had to Giverny. A truly meaningful visit!
This was a wonderful tour of both Giverny and Versailles with seemingly perfect timing being first in the doors for the opening of the Gardens and missing most of the crowds that grow throughout the day.
Olivier was wonderful guide. Insightful and knowledgable. He also was very helpful and listened to our needs. We were very happy to choose this way of visiting Mont-Saint-Michel!
Lovely to see the setting for Monet’s work and hear about his personal life and family.
