This activity will end right where it started.
Claude Monet, the father of the Impressionist art movement of the late 1800s, lived and worked just outside of Paris in Giverny, where he spent his days indulging in his passion for botany and gardening. On this half-day tour from Paris, feast your eyes on his charming home, which sits on a large property made up of extensive gardens. 

Your tour starts with departure by coach in either the morning or afternoon (depending on option selected when booking) from the city center. When you arrive at Giverny, take a walk through the front gardens and orchards with your guide, and gaze upon an array of vivid blooms (depending on the season). Then stroll over to the legendary water lily pond that so inspired Monet, and cross the oft-painted Japanese bridge. Enjoy the tranquil environment created by weeping willows and bamboo trees, and pose for photos in your own Impressionist-style landscape.

Skip any lines and head inside the house, which was painstakingly restored to its former glory after it was donated by Monet's son to the French Academy of Fine Arts. Your guide leaves you here to explore the kitchen, bedrooms, and other spaces on your own. Admire Monet's private art collection, including Japanese garden prints. Then wander into his studio and peruse the large souvenir shop, where you can purchase reproductions of Monet's paintings, pottery, and even flower seeds.  

Your tour ends with the drive back to Paris in the comfort of your coach.

We opted for the guided tour and we’re glad we did. Our guide was a wealth of information and really brought the gardens to life. Our only complaint was that a couple arrived late then complained about their seats on the minibus and to placate them other guests had to move even though they had arrived on time.

A MUST. Good for the soul.

A TREASURE! If you love history, gardens, flowers of unimaginable varieties, quaint babbling brooks, lily pond, etc this was natural beauty at its best. Only one hour 15 min outside of Paris, SO WELL WORTH IT! This is seasonal, closes in November and reopens in April. A must if you love all things Monet. Back in Paris by noon to enjoy the rest of the day.

This tour was an absolute pleasure. The garden and house are exquisite, and our guide, Fabio, enjoyed showing them off. Fabio was personable and very attentive. It was overall a very enjoyable day.

Easiest, fastest, best way to visit Giverney
JJLandrum
, Oct 2019
I’ve visited Giverney on my own before from Paris : subway, train, bus, walking. This experience was so much less taxing, and enriching. Our guide gave us nearly an hour of history and context on the journey. He walked us right to the entrance and through, skipping any line. Our orientation to the garden was quick and clear, leaving us time to see and explore and photograph alone. We left on time and returned exactly on time. I brought my mom, who thoroughly enjoyed and could not have done the more rigorous way.

The bus was very comfortable and the guides gave us interesting information along the way. Once we arrived the guided tour was amazing! Lots of good information from our guide and the opportunity to take as many pictures as we liked. He also gave us information on things to see in the village after the house tour. I would do this tour again!

Great Gardens/Boring Commentary

I paid extra for a guided tour. She droned on throughout the hour and a half drive putting my husband to sleep. Upon arrival she gave us the most minimal survey of what is where and left. The gardens were amazing but the guide sounded like she was reading from a very boring book.

If you don’t want to spend an entire day and want to experience a visit - this is a perfect tour - not rushed and you have plenty of time to enjoy the gardens - just plan accordingly if going during peak season.

A very convenient way to get to Monet’s Garden. The guide was excellent. The only draw back was the crowds, not the fault of the tour.
