It is about an hour's drive from the pickup point near the Arc de Triomphe to Giverny. The transportation is a minivan with six or seven passengers, so tours sometimes sell out quickly. Book far enough in advance. The house and gardens are spectacular. We went in June and almost everything was blooming. The water lily pond was kind of murky, but maybe it always is. Our guide Sara was knowledgeable, friendly, and spoke good English. I think there are two tours, one leaves at 8 am and gets back to Paris about 1 pm. The other tour, which we took, leaves at 2 pm and gets back about 7 pm. The traffic back into Paris was bad, but it's probably bad going out of town at 8 am might also be bad.

The gardens in the Spring are just so lovely. The downside of a Spring visit is that the water lillies aren't in bloom. I had been to Giverny in the fall & it has its own beauty too. Our guide, who is an Art Historian, was very informative & we had plenty of time to explore on our own too. As a bonus, on our return to Paris, we stopped at Monet's grave site too.

Our tour guide promptly arrived at the designated coffee shop to take us to Giverny. He pointed out important information in our way up to our destination and gave us a brief explanation and guided us to the gardens. We had enough time to venture a little outside to the museum area where I found another garden of a museum and the poppies field. He took us to the places which was mentioned in the guide when I signed up and got back on time to the city. He was helpful and informative. Very glad I took the tour. I even had enough time to shop for things at the gift shop and outside. The line grew outside when I came out. The early morning tour is definitely the way to go. No traffic and less people go take photography and get inside the house.
