Comfy bus ride in and out. Professionally maintained gardens and home museum. However...if you've ever seen a lily pond, weeping willow or old colonial before...well, then you've seen this before too.

This tour was excellent.. The Overview of the details of what we would see was given prior to arriving. It allowed us to focus on seeing the gardens, take pictures and have a better idea of what we were seeing. This trip allowed independent viewing once we arrived which was perfect. One could linger were we liked or move at our own pace. We were not constrained by the wishes of a small group or flying passed areas we wished more time. During the half day tour there is only time to see the house and gardens. If one wants to explore the village also, you would need the whole day tour. We chose the half day tour because of time restraints in our schedule. Would definitely do thia again.

Monet’s gardens was very good. It was an 1 1/2 bus ride to and from.
That is what you are paying for. The pickup location is across the street from The Louvre and easy to access from the Metro.

No visit to view Monet's art should be complete without a visit to Giverny. Our trip was well organized with sufficient amount of time to view the house, gardens and of course the lily pond. I would highly recommend the Viator sponsored trip.

Great day trip out of Paris and a must do. Even though it was the hottest day in Paris for a long time the smell of the jasmine in the garden was amazing!

What a highlight for a short trip to Monet’s garden at Giverny.
The commentary along the way was informative and the bus driver was terrific.
The garden was magical (even with the crowds)

Viator had a group of tour guides who were very helpful in preparing us and getting us to and from Giverny on a timely basis. They had audio recordings to allow us to prepare and understand the history of Monet and the surrounding area. The grounds of the home and house tour were splendid. This is a tour you should take if you love flowers and history

An absolute must see. Monet’s home and gardens are beautifully maintained. It was poring rain the day I visited but the gardens were still spectacular.

This trip may take your away from Paris for a few hours but it is well worth it. If you know Monet's work, seeing his surroundings will give you a deeper understanding of what inspired many of his paintings. Monet's gardens and his house are where you want to focus if you are pressed for time.
This can be a D.I.Y tour. No need for a guide.

We were lucky to have sunny and 60 degree temps. The garden flowers were still lovely in mid October. Taking a bus tour was an easy non stressful way to travel to Giverny. The 5 hour tour was just enough time to walk the gardens, see the house, and visit the gift shop before walking back to the bus. There was no traffic problems on this Sunday. A weekday or holiday could be rushed if the hit traffic.
