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

Duration 5:45 hour(s)
Highlights
  • Wander Giverny at your own leisure
  • Contemplate the flamboyant garden at Giverny, a source of inspiration for Monet’s impressionist works
  • Come discover the life of Claude Monet through audio guide commentary

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.

I was very disappointed by the amount of time I had to be able to actually look around Giverny. I was expecting to have a few hours to walk around and really enjoy the place, and when we arrived I was told we had less than an hour to see everything. I wanted to have more time and now I know I would either need to go on my own so I could take my time or I would have to pay for a full day excursion to go up there and really enjoy all that Giverny has to offer. I was also disappointed with the fact that the bus was in a different place and a little hard to find when walking back from the town. There was no meeting place in the town to then walk over as a group, we just had to go back. to the bus on our own and hope that the bus didn't leave without us.

Taking the bus simplifies our process quite a bit - the ride up to Giverny was very pleasant. Unfortunately, the amount of time we actually spent at the house and gardens was very little - we got about 1 hour and 30 minutes and it was extremely crowded. It was necessary to rush in order to see everything. Entering the site was very disorganized and most people were concerned about seeing everything there. Having had visited Giverny on my own previously, I think I would opt to do it on my own again in the future to really benefit from the beauty of the house and gardens.

Tour was good, but Victor our guide was a very poor communicator, quick to anger, didn't bother to make sure the group was together before giving instructions. Lovely house and gardens.

Very busy at office to exchange voucher for tickets, but queue went quick as plenty of staff serving. The staff lovely and chatty and very helpful, no complaints here, Waiting outside for coach very busy, not explained well which area to wait. there were numbers on posts but not level with actual coach we were to board. We were supposed to be on coach for 8.15am as journey 1 and a half to 2 hour drive arriving at Monet's garden for 10.am. left at 8.45 , half an hour late and got to house and gardens at 10.25 am, by time walked to gardens we only had till 12 noon as coach leaving then, so we only had 1 and a half hours in gardens not the full 2 hours there. For the price we paid 264 Euros for 4 Adults . The house and garden tour was only 8 euros to get in so trip on coach and Audio head set cost 58 Euros. To be honest thought it was not fair we missed out on half an hour time slot to visit, we had to be back on coach for 12 noon, as next trip due when we got back. The young lad doing the tour lovely but still think we should have had extra half hour before leaving.Don't think Id book again for this trip as not worth money for amount of time allowed. Classed as half day tour but only 2hrs actual time in gardens. other 4 hours travel time.
