Duration: 5 hours
Product code: 4006
Overview

On this half-day excursion, you can see the Foundation Claude Monet at your own leisure!

The tour leaves from our office near the Louvre, where you’ll be given an audio guide for the visit. After about a 1 hr. 30 min. take a trip through the verdant countryside, you will arrive in Giverny. You will have two hours to tour Monet’s home, his studio and vibrantly coloured gardens.

Claude Monet lived with his family for more than 40 years in this Normand village. Follow in Monet’s footsteps as you visit the house, which includes the “blue sitting room,” his reading room which opens into the “pantry” where he kept tea, oil, spices and eggs. Continue on to the dining room, which houses the private apartments and one of the world’s largest Japanese print collections. 

The visit continues with a stroll through the luscious Monet garden, which was the main source of inspiration for this indisputable founding father of impressionism. During this walk, you can listen to audio guide commentary about Monet’s life, works and career. Take in the vibrant flower-lined central path, which is surrounded by roses, nasturtium, and flowerbeds of all kinds, offering a wide spectrum of colour. Cross the Clos-Normand, where you will find flowers from the Far East. Finally, you’ll come upon the magnificent water garden, famous for its water lilies, weeping willows, and the celebrated Japanese bridge spanning the pond.

The two hosts/ guides were very polite and courteous. The gentleman when dealing with everyone was superb. They were doing a difficult job dealing with a wide cross-section of people and the guy (Henri I think) handled people politely and firmly with great subtle humour. He is a star. They both are. Priceless. They made it a very well run tour. Thank you both.

A long way to travel but worth a visit. But the time was enough. I listened to all the information in the audio guide on the bus on the way there, which I recommend. By doing so you know what you want to see more of when you arrive, and can just enjoy what you see.

Liked not being shepherded around by a guide. We were turned loose and given a timeline and a time to be back at the bus, so we could spend our time concentrating on we liked. For us, one of the high points of the tour was the bus ride to and from Giverny, seeing the countryside beyond Paris and the farms and little towns in the distance.

The tour guide on the bus was very knowledgeable. Listen to the audio guide on the bus instead of trying to learn about everything once you’re at Giverny. Be sure to tour the Japanese Garden first. Since the house is small, the lines are long and they move slowly. Also, there’s a cafe just outside the Giverny Estate along with a gift shop and toilets.

Lovely day visiting Giverny despite a bit of rain. Monet’s garden at the beginning of Spring is beautiful. The self-guided audio tour allows you to wander by yourself & soak up the beauty. Excellent service, friendly & efficient. I highly recommend privatetour.com and will use them again.
