Bad tour guide Jesse
Jeanine_E
, Jun 2022
We were late. Our fault for sure. Got a little lost, thought the tour was 30 minutes later than it was. I apologized numerous times. They contacted our tour guide, Jesse, who left the tour to retrieve us. I apologized again and she told me 4 times then that normally she would cancel us, and to prove to her that the tour started 30 minutes later, I just apologized again and asked what we should do, Jesse said if we can catch up them we can finish the tour. We thanked, hurried to catch the group that was all in French. We had signed up for English, I do speak French so I was able to hear the rude French ladies talking about how rude we are to have got lost! God forbid we made a mistake! Jesse continued another three times to tell us that normally she would have canceled us. Finally I had had enough. I told her we understood her the first four times she had told us but we are hear now and would like to finish the tour. Jesse did not want this neither did the rude French ladies so finally my husband said fine we will go on our own and we left. Such a horrible experience for such a beautiful place. I was so looking forward to taking my children to see it. Thankfully I have been before and was able to guide us ourselves. I have always enjoyed our tours before I think if we had stayed away from Jesse it would have been a whole different experience.

Cancelled tour on us last minute
Edward_O
, Jun 2022
We are experienced and well traveled and in fact have lived as expats in Europe so we feel we are very objective. We booked our tour online and received confirmation along with the cancellation fee policy if within 24 hours you cancel NO REFUND as well as a “warning” that you must be 15 min early. Our tour was to begin at 10am. After driving from Paris to ensure we’d be on time, we stood at the meeting point and only one other couple was there. No tour guide to be seen. At 10:01, we received a phone call saying so sorry but the tour guide had to go to hospital so they need to cancel. Those are the facts. We understand things happen…just seemed very odd that we were told to be there 9:45 and yet didn’t get a call to cancel til 1 minute after tour was supposed to start. We were told we’d get a refund. The only ones who lost out was us the tourists and the operator was not even willing to give us entrance tickets gratis for our troubles. To be quite frank it seemed obvious to us, that there were not enough ppl signed up for the tour so they waited to last minute to cancel. We bought our own tickets and toured on our own. It’s a lovely area for sure but our experience with this operator was miserable. The tour operator told us on the phone they would send an email with refund confirmation. We received nothing from them of the sort. We had to contact Viator directly to ensure credit for their cancellation.

The guide was perfect, we paid for a English tuor, but our friends did not speak english and the other couple only french, so the guide start speaking french and spanish (she was not confortable with portuguese, although she knows how to speak) and we could understand everything. The garden is perfect, but is a crowded tuor

Jessie (the guide) showed up punctually at the location indicated on the voucher. The tour was wonderful and she started with giving us a background of the little town with a quick walk before we entered the gardens through a special entrance for groups/guides. Jessie was Knowledgeable and had a great personality. Really friendly and open to questions. I would recommend this tour and especially Jessie.

Monet’s House Guest

Monet’s home and garden was a short and sweet tour, but very special in the authenticity of detail. If coming from Paris, I would pay to travel with a group vs. public transportation. Also confirm trip details with the company because I called with questions the night before/day of and nobody answered the phone.

Monet’s Garden is inspiring

We were coming from Paris by train, be sure you research how to get on the train to Vernon. We ended up having to take a taxi which was $$$ & he needed cash. Train home for 2 was $32. We loved the visit & it was worth the taxi- not sure why we had such a difficult time at the train to Vernon but we did, the station was packed & you must get there an hour early. Our guide waited for us and she was really sweet & walked us around.

This was the highlight of our stay in Paris. A must do tour if you enjoy art an impressionists in particular. You can spend up to 2 hours around the house and the garden. And the little village also has a lot to offer with it’s boutique art galleries and gift shops.

Skipping the line was great! Our tour was just the two of us and our French guide. She was French, but spoke excellent English, very well informed and knew every flower in the gardens.

We have wanted to visit Giverny for many years, and this trip did not disappoint. Our guide was knowledgeable about Monet's art and personal life, as well as the horticultural aspects of the garden. She allowed us ample time to linger, ask questions, and take photos. With the swarms of people visiting, this was a great option.

Excellent guided tour. Highly recommended. On the day we took the tour, my wife and I were the only ones in our group. It does get crowded as the day progresses so I would go as early as possible in the morning. Well worth the trip.

Inspiring beauty to view and enjoy.

Our tour was cancelled two days before we left on vacation, however my adult son, who studied fine arts at York University in Toronto, Canada and myself actually enjoyed being able to wander the gardens at our own leisure. It was late October and the gardens were still quite nice even though they were not at their peak. The bonus was that there were fewer people and made for excellent opportunity to get some clearer photos of the garden. An excellent experience. I would recommend going on your own instead of taking the tour option.

The grounds are truly spectacular, especially the pond, water lillies, and garden. Well worth a visit if you are a Monet fan. Our guide, Bridgette, was outstanding.

The tour was fine but meeting our guide was a complete circus due to the wrong location printed on the voucher.
