What people are saying about Fondation Monet

Excellent tour. In a small group and with our guide was very good. He knows a lot about history and geography, so, provide a lot of insights and interesting data!

Really wonderful to see Monet’s house and garden. Guide was very knowledgeable, and an excellent driver. Definitely worth doing, if you enjoy Monet’s artwork.

Got there a little before the crowds so we could take some good photos. Our guide Jonathan was terrific. Learned a lot about Monet from him.

Really good guide. Bit long on the speech about Monet. Wanted to walk and had to stand for about 15mins. Should be a lot shorter

Everyone was on time - the guide was knowledgeable and small group of 8 was ideal
