Our tour guide, Brigette was very friendly and knowledgeable. She gave us plenty of time to take pictures. Great tour. I think having a guide adds to the experience because you learn more about the history and the plants in the garden. And it is more interactive than a self-guided audio tour. We took TER the train to Giverny from Paris. We arrived early and had lunch at Les Nympheas restaurant before our 2 pm tour. Food and service were very nice. If you arrive early enough, you will have time to see the gardens at the Impressionist Museum and explore the museum also.

Wonderful tour and would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to walk in Monet’s world. I didn’t think they would be much to see in the fall however I was proved wrong. Many flowers of different colors and varieties were blooming. Our guide was very knowledgeable and did not rush us through. A must see!

It was a much smaller group compared to the other tours going on. The guide was friendly and intelligent about not only the house and gardens but also the town itself.

Having our guide provided context and insight we would not have had form a book. Easy access. We were late but our guide helped us catch up.

Our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable about Monet, his family and the garden.
