Full description

Stroll the streets of the charming village of Giverny and discover the grave of Claude Monet in the churchyard. Then, skip the long lines to Monet's house and gardens to hear the story of the artist's life and how he led the Impressionist movement from the village between 1883 and 1926.

Learn how artists such as John Singer Sargent, Paul Cézanne and Mary Cassatt joined him in the sleepy village to form an unofficial artists’ colony. Be enchanted by the ponds and gardens that inspired his paintings, and see the Japanese bridge and lilies of the Oriental water garden.

Savor the scent of flowers in season, such as wild roses, hollyhocks, poppies and honeysuckle. 

Admire the water lilies and weeping willows, instantly recognizable from his classic paintings and look inside the thatched roof house to find the cheerful kitchen and his collection of 18th and 19th century Japanese prints.

This company is very reliable and very accommodating. Our tour was supposed to be at 10 in the morning but we were late because there was no shuttle bus available after we got off the train station. Called the customer service and they were very nice enough to let us join the 2 pm tour of the house. Monet Garden was worth a visit! A good way to enjoy France countryside.

We thoroughly enjoyed our guided and informative tour of Monet’s House and Garden. We booked a group tour but were the only two people so we got a private tour! While not art aficionados, we do enjoy learning about what motivates an artist and how they interpret their surroundings into a painting. Hearing about Monet’s love of art, color, and how colors interact was very interesting. He loved his home in Giverny and we loved strolling through his living masterpiece. Tres bien!

Our tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable, pointing out special details and describing many of the amazing plants, trees and shrubs in the gardens. We learned a lot more than had we just toured by ourselves. However, the cost (65 Euros each) was a bit high, especially considering the the two hour tour lasted a bit over 90 minutes. It was raining off and on though.
