Half Day Giverny Monet's Gardens Audio Guided Tour from Paris

5/5 (86 reviews)
  • Description

On this half-day excursion, you can see the Fondation Claude Monet at your own leisure.

The tour leaves from our office near the Louvre, where you’ll be given an audio guide for the visit. After about a 1 hr. 30 min. trip through the verdant countryside, you will arrive in Giverny. You will have two hours to tour Monet’s home, his studio and vibrantly colored gardens.

Claude Monet lived with his family for more than 40 years in this Normand village. Follow in Monet’s footsteps as you visit the house, which includes the “blue sitting room,” his reading room which opens into the “pantry” where he kept tea, oil, spices and eggs. Continue on to the dining room, which houses the private apartments and one of the world’s largest Japanese print collections. 

The visit continues with a stroll through the luscious Monet garden, which was the main source of inspiration for this indisputable founding father of impressionism. During this walk, you can listen to audio guide commentary about Monet’s life, works and career. Take in the vibrant flower-lined central path, which is surrounded by roses, nasturtium, and flowerbeds of all kinds, offering a wide spectrum of color. Cross the Clos-Normand, where you will find flowers from the Far East. Finally, you’ll come upon the magnificent water garden, famous for its water lilies, weeping willows, and the celebrated Japanese bridge spanning the pond.

5/5
The tour was well organized, and most enjoyable: everything worked like clockwork. The gardens are very beautiful, and should not be missed by any visitor to Paris. I recomend it without reservation.
4/5
Everything runs as it should be. The guide was very good. The coach was clean, smooth drive to Giverny back and forth.
5/5
I liked being able to listen to the background of the Impressionism art movement, Monet's part in it and about Monet's life on the coach before his home. Gave more time to contemplate while wandering around the gardens which are in marvellous condition. Congratulations to the restoration organisation & staff.
3/5
Advertised as two hours st gardens. Only an hour and fifteen minutes. Not enough time felt rushed. Time at garden should not include walk to and from bus. Travel time should include bus ride and walk time to garden. Time at garden should be full two hours.
4/5
"The transportation arrangement is efficient and I have plenty of time in Monet Garden (although it is less than 2 hours). The audioguide offered is informative."
3/5
"Due to the large numbers of tourists the time allotted for touring the house and garden was not enough. It would have been an added plus if there were more time to enjoy the house and gardens, Some adjustments should be made during peak tourist periods."
5/5
"Well organised, informative and excellent structure"
