Perfect!!! Our tour guide was amazing! Georgia was very enganging, she definitely knows a lot and loves being a tour guide. She made the extra effort to make sure everyone enjoyed the day and I could tell she cared for each one of us. The best tour guide I’ve ever had in Europe!! And Monet’s house and garden was beautiful!!

Magnificent Monet

Highly recommend this tour. Georgia was an exceptional guide with funny anecdotes on Monet’s life. A life long dream fulfilled and the house and gardens did not disappoint. The tour was well organised, bus was well appointed and our driver Eric was terrific. We used the “GetYourGuide” App to book, we found the Find meeting point function very helpful in getting us there on time to catch the bus.

Wonderful tour

Getting to the pick up point was very easy oon the Metro. The bus was very comfortable and the trip well worth it. Monet's house and gardens were very beautiful and provided moments of tranquility at the end of a challenging and busy trip in the Caucasus'. The commentary was excellent and I would highly recommend this excursion. We arrived early before the crowds. By the time we were ready to leave, the lines into the house were very long and it was a hot day, so I thought that the timing by the company was extra wonderful!!
