Giverny Monet's Gardens from Paris

4/5 (10 reviews)
  • Description

Come share a lovely experience in the world of Claude Monet at Giverny. Discover the impressionist by visiting Monet’s home and gardens at Giverny in Normandy.

Departure is from our agency in the center of Paris, near the Louvre, at 8:15a.m. or 1:45 p.m., according to your choice of departure time. During your excursion taken at your own pace, a hostess will be present to give you all of the information you need and to answer your questions.  During the trip aboard our air conditioned bus, you can enjoy the beautiful green landscape of the French countryside. 

After about one and a half hours on route, you will arrive at the Normand village of Giverny. Your hostess will lead you to the home of Claude Monet, where you can begin  you visit. You will see the daily life of this master of impressionism in his private apartment, the “blue salon”, which was his reading room, and the dining room, which houses the largest collection of Japanese stamps in the world. He lived here for 43 years, and it was his favorite place to paint. 

You can then continue your excursion into the gardens of Giverny and truly dive into the world of impressionism. A real gardener, Claude Monet designed his garden as a veritable work of art and made it into a source of essential inspiration.  To see the gardens in magnificent flower, Giverny is only open from April to October.  During your walk, you will cross the Clos Normand, where you will find numerous flowerbeds whose varying heights give volume to the locale.  You also cross the water garden, with its pond of water lilies, which inspired the famous Waterlilies of Monet and the celebrated Japanese bridge, covered with wisteria.

At the end of your escapade, you return to board our bus to head back to our agency in Paris.

A little confusing - there were 3 different “tours” on the same bus & 2 guides. The guide we were to follow was short and did not have a flag, umbrella, or other method to clearly indicate where she was in the mass of humanity at Giverny. As well, we were on the unguided portion (meaning that once we got to the garden we were on our own... which was what we were expecting) but there was no clear explanation at any time as to how we were expected to either get tickets (paid for as part of the tour) or return to the bus at the end. It would have been nice if, on the bus, the guide had at least addressed those issues to the two of us who were just along for the ride.
5/5
Excellent tour for the price. The guides were wonderful: friendly, very personable, and very professional. The driver was also very good. The drive itself to Giverny was lovely. We sat at the front of the bus on the top level and this offered a most exceptional view. There is about a 10 minute walk to the entry and does involve stairs so if you have mobility issues this would be a problem. The gardens are spectacular! The house tour has regulated entry, so even though there are lots of people, you will have sone freedom of movement within the house once inside. I wish we had another 30 minutes to one hour longer to explore the village and/or linger in the gardens. That is my only complaint.

It was awesome experience. We arrived 10 min late and they asked the bus to come back to pick us up as well. They were so understanding.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to see Monet's Garden in Giverny. The bus was comfortable and conveniently took us from Paris to Giverny. The tour guides were helpful and very nice. The only change I would suggest is to let people know before arriving about how to get back to the bus. The guides showed us the way going in, but it was hard to remember and we tried to go back to where we came in only to find we needed to exit at a different spot (by gift shop) and were almost late getting to the bus because of the crowds. A little extra reinforcement of this would be helpful. Thanks for giving us a delightful day!
