Giverny All Day Tour
Jacqueline P
, Oct 2019
Self guided tour which was perfect visit for us. You definitely need more than 1.5 hrs to tour Gardens and Monet’s house. Tour guide gave good instructions ONCE we arrived. What was unhelpful was the lack of instruction on HOW TO USE the audio guide before arrival. We had no idea that we could listen to the prerecorded guide on the ride there. There was also no commentary on our trip to or from Giverny, unless you were on the pink, green or brown tour. This was unfriendly and unacceptable. There were 4 different tours on our bus. We had to wait 15 minutes for our guide to dispatch the three tours first. This arrangement was unprofessional. And please instruct your guides to give more information like whether there is a bathroom on board the bus and general safety information about the bus exits. .

Tour of Giverny

Overall it was well-executed though I would not recommend the full-day tour. We had seen everything in Giverny & visited most of the little shops with about 2.5h to spare. Our tour was unguided and we did not feel we missed anything.

Giverny experience

This trip was not what was described in the site. It said that there would be no more than 9 travellers, but when we arrived at Paris City vision we were put on a double decker bus with about 60 people. No alcohol or tea or coffee were provided either. Water was provided with lunch. The gardens were lovely but we had to leave by 12.30 for lunch and couldn't return.

Giverny fabulous; tour company not so much.

The gardens at Giverny are exquisite and if you love gardens, you'll love this setting. Be advised, however, that there is no re-entry once you leave. There is a great and large gift shop. We bought the full day trip including lunch because we thought it would be easier on us. However, the tour guide moved so fast, that I had to run to catch her. By that point, she had finished with instructions on full day tour. The full day tour is self-guided. She took off with half-day tour and after catching up to her, she extremely quickly repeated instructions. No map of the village was provided and, consequently, we did not find the additional places we had tickets for. We believed the 3 tickets (provided by the tour company) we were handed for lunch, snack and museum, were in order of use. We had to be at lunch at precisely noon and looked for the 1st ticket destination. Forty-five minutes later, we found it and it was not lunch place but snack place. The clerk at the snack spot was very kind and said this happened ALL THE TIME. We never found the lunch spot. We tried to go back into the garden but there is no re-entry allowed; the guide failed to mention that. Also, we could not get into the gift shop. We never made it to the museum. We bought our own lunch as there are additional restaurants in the village. A potentially grand day ruined by poor tour company. Don't buy this package but do go to the gardens at Giverny.

A dream come true! (But be prepared)

Our visit to Giverny was the reason we included a return to Paris on this trip to Europe! And seeing Monet's gardens and the water lily pond truly was the highlight!! Just being in the gardens and the water lily pond where Monet stood and painted so many beautiful works was awesome. We arrived about 9:40 and were taken through the group entrance into the Monet estate. It was a beautiful day, and so it was very crowded. Our guide gave us our vouchers for the House, lunch, and afternoon break. We were not advised that we should see the House first, and so because the lines were so long and so disorganized, we strolled through the gardens and then around the water lily pond for some 90 minutes. When we got back to the House at 11:10, it was still so crowded that we knew we could not get through it and make our noon lunch reservation. (We were told that we must be at the restaurant at noon for our lunch.) So we had to skip seeing the House. We then headed for the church and cemetery. And then off to lunch, but couldn't find the restaurant as there is no on-street signage (and no address on our voucher). At the restaurant, they accommodated us even though we were about 15 minute late. Then we had the afternoon to see the Musee d'Impressionism and the village, which is really quaint. We visited the Mechanical Museum filled with farm equipment and engines and such. And we enjoyed our afternoon treat. We thought about paying again to go see Monet's House but the lines to buy tickets were very long and we didn't know how long it would take to get through the House. It would be helpful to have a later lunch time (1:00-1:30) as well as more specifics on what to expect for the lines to go in the House. We might have opted to see the house rather than going to lunch. As such, we definitely recommend the full day tour. You need time to visit Monet's house, gardens and water lily pond at your own pace.

Highlight of our Paris trip!

We all felt that this was the highlight of our trip to Paris. To see the Monet house and gardens was just a beautiful experience. We booked the all day trip with lunch and an afternoon tea. Our bus trip was comfortable, and we were well taken care of by our tour guides. Lunch was a wonderful 3 course meal after visiting Monet’s house, and we had plenty of time to explore the impressionist museum as well as the church and Monet’s tomb. Definitely recommend taking the all day tour!!

Perfect Day

I went with my mother and daughter (age six) on this full-day trip, and we were so glad to have the whole day in Giverny. A half-day would hardly be enough to see the gardens and the house, and this lovely package included a great lunch, another museum, and enough time to go slowly through each and take lots of photos. There was a bit of confusion in the morning--make sure you go into the office and check in with your printed voucher so you get your ticket with the bus number (so you'll get on the right bus). We also waited a bit for the bus in the afternoon, but overall, it was a really excellent day and a worthwhile package.

I am SO GLAD my friend and I scheduled this trip, and the FULL DAY one, as well. I feel like there is no way you can get the entire experience of Giverny and Monet's house and gardens in a half day trip. The bus ride was great, and we got little audio guides to listen to on the bus ride there. The tour guides were helpful in explaining times and places where we needed to be. The full day trip came with lunch and baked goods from a local bakery, and the food was DELICIOUS! I can't even explain how breathtaking the gardens were, and could have easily spent an entire day walking around just the garden, so I highly recommend the entire day trip to get the WHOLE experience!

Truly a wonderful day

We were going to take a train from Paris to Giverny for a day trip, because all we could find was half-day trips to Giverny from Paris, but ran across several posts and reviews saying what a hassle that could be. Then we found this full day trip, on a nice, big, air-conditioned bus from Paris, and booked it. The tour operator, Paris City Vision, was as nice, helpful, and professional as could be. The site itself was wonderful, with a tour of Monet's house, gardens, water lily pond, lunch at a local restaurant, Les Nympheas, a visit to the Musee Impressionisme, and an afternoon snack at a local bakery, Aux Coin du Paintre, plus some free time to walk around Giverny, where we stopped in some local painters' shops, and found the church where Monet is buried and his grave. There were people on our morning bus who were only there for the morning; they had to leave mid-day to be taken back to Paris, to be dropped off when the tour picked up the afternoon half-day people who only got to spend the afternoon there, with whom we rode back at the end of our full-day tour. I really feel that each of the half-day groups really missed out on the whole experience, and only got, well, half the enjoyment. I truly recommend doing the full-day tour, and would not hesitate again to use Viator or Paris City Vision.

Difficult departure and failure to provide information

To start - tour was 40 minutes late leaving Paris. Boarding the bus was very slow. Guide seemed to be disorganized and failed to give us needed vouchers for our meals. Our meal was at noon and we Had to leave the grounds for lunch and weren’t told we could not return to museum. We were let back in by museum employee when we explained we hadn’t been told. This should be disclosed before you purchase tickets. Rest of trip was wonderful.
