An all-inclusive outing to tour Giverny at your leisure. You will discover Monet's house, the gardens at Giverny, the village and the Museum of Impressionisms.

Head to our PARISCityVISION office to kick off a bright and colorful excursion. You will make your way through Paris and the gorgeous landscapes of the Normandy countryside aboard our air conditioned coach. You will arrive in Giverny after about 1.5 hours of driving and your guide will escort you to the entrance of the estate. He will explain how the day is organized and will give you an audio guide for use outdoors only.

You may choose to start your day by touring Claude Monet's house. This residence nestled in the Giverny gardens is where the impressionist master lived for the last 40 years of his life. The inside of this two-story home boasts a magnificent decor. You can immerse yourself in Monet's world as you gaze upon the many paintings on display in the rooms of the house.

Your visit continues with a walk through the Giverny gardens, which have been preserved in their original state, as you listen to the commentary on your audio guide. Stroll through the Clos Normand and its stunning paths and flower beds bursting with a thousand colors. Lose yourself in the imagination of Claude Monet as you discover the water garden surrounded by majestic weeping willows. You cannot help but take amazing photos of the Japanese bridge spanning the waterlily pond, which was immortalized so many times in the artist's canvases. As you meander, you will understand the extent to which this garden inspired Monet's impressionist works.

You will then be invited to dine at Les Nymphéas, where lunch is served from noon to 2:00 pm. This restaurant is next to the Monet Foundation and across from Monet's house and serves traditional Norman cuisine featuring recipes from the days of Claude Monet. After lunch you can linger a bit longer in the world of the impressionist painter.

Take time to walk through the village and stop in the handful of painting and sculpture galleries dotted throughout the charming streets. Your day will conclude at Au Coin du Pain’tre, an artisanal bakery near Sainte Radegonde Church and Monet's tomb.

A wonderful day out at the amazing gardens in Giverny. Very well organsised and the audio tour is very well put together. The staff are wonderful. We really had a great time. My only problem was the lunch venue . When we took our voucher to the restaurant it was a set meal and consisted of a very weak soup , Duck and seafood . My wife cannot eat seafood or duck and my 8 year old would touch neither. So after a long debate and wait time a nice waitress brought us normal food from the main menu which was very nice. My other problem was that the manageress treated us like second class as we sat outside and she insisted we move inside to the area that the voucher covered. Plus i also noticed that regular paying customers got served first while we waited. It was like our money/voucher was not good enough because we were with the tour company. My suggestion would be to put a value on the lunch voucher and let the people sit where they want , and pick from the main menuThe second food location that afternoon was the complete opposite and we even stayed longer there and had some beer as the staff and surroundings were amazing. I would certainly go back here again as they made us feel welcome.

Good but we were told to be at the bus stop at 5 pm. There was no City vision bus there. We got there at 4.45pm and were left sitting in the sun worrying about how we were going to get back to Paris. Eventually at 5.15om a tour guide came to us and told us to board an alternative bus. We should have been informed of this situation.

A wonderful visit to Giverny, well worth the all-day stay. Audio pens were easy to use and the dialogue was very good. Lunch at Les Nympheas was a delight and afternoon tea was needed and appreciated. Because the bus had people doing different tours, instructions given on the trip to Giverny could have been better organized to avoid confusion for non-English or French speakers.
5/5
Full day in Giverny on your own. Wonderful way to see this delightful, historic town. The second desert was superfluous but it tasted great the next day. Audio pen worked very well. Would definitely take another tour by this group.
5/5
An excellent tour--the gardens are beautiful and the audioguide is very good.. The small museum also has a lovely garden. The only improvement I could suggest is a more careful description of how to find the parking area when returning from the garden. It isn't well marked and the path isn't obvious.
