Excellent in every way, and great value for the money. Quick highlights: 1) Very knowledgeable and personable guide (Will) who made the trip fun while giving us lots of information and insights; 2) super-comfortable minivan with excellent air-conditioning on a hot, humid day; and 3) as a bonus, we drove through small, picturesque villages, visited a church dating back to 1100, and saw Monet's (and his huge family's) tomb. Finally, Monet's gardens and water lily ponds are simply spectacular. If you love his paintings, you owe it to yourself to visit!

Monet's garden is beautiful. It was great going in 30 min before they officially open. I definitely recommend going on the morning tour. We had a great time and were able to relax not having to worry about arranging travel from Paris to Giverny on our own. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Learning the history was fun.

My dream came true. I always wanted to travel to Monet's Garden and now my wish has been granted. This tour has good reviews that's why I ordered it. The lake, the house and the garden and the painter's tomb are all as beautiful as his fame. If the tour were longer, one could enjoy the tranquility and its beauty even more. The reservation is uncomplicated and reliable. We are also satisfied with the pleasant and competent tour guide. Would love to come again in a different season.
