Sarah was a wonderful guide for our half-day visit to Giverny. She set the context for the visit during the drive and supplemented this during a brief coffee break just before entering the gardens. The pace and content of her remarks was consistently excellent and she unfailingly responded to our questions. Thanks to her, our visit was immeasurably better than an independent exploration of the house and gardens would have been.
The visit to Giverny was wonderful and greatly enhanced our appreciation of Monet. I would have given 5 stars, but there is one rather serious flaw in the whole process: the directions back to the bus are very poor. We were not given a map, and the village of Giverny does not clearly mark the way back to the bus parking. We were almost left behind. This part of the tour needs serious improvement.
Our tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable, pointing out special details and describing many of the amazing plants, trees and shrubs in the gardens. We learned a lot more than had we just toured by ourselves. However, the cost (65 Euros each) was a bit high, especially considering the the two hour tour lasted a bit over 90 minutes. It was raining off and on though.
Perfect half day trip to discover Monet’s gardens and home. I thought there might be some paintings, but only the inspiration. The gardens were magnificent, even in early October. Please note that while the meeting place is only 500ft from the Arc De Triumph, you cannot see it from the circle, so make sure you have the right street.
Papa solo avec ma fille de 10 ans qui peint (presque) comme Monet, cette visite nous a enchanté. Brigitte notre guide a su intéresser petits et grands sur les fleurs du jardin, la vie de Monet et sa peinture. Merci!
