A wonderful custom tour to Giverny on a Friday. The garden was therefore not so full and our guide was able to show and explain everything to us in peace. There was also enough time on the trip to explain other aspects of French history, as he was not only familiar with art history and the painter Monet. Very nice experience and a great trip. We were just sorry that our guide had to wait because there was an error in the coordination between his agency and GetyourGuide regarding the pick-up time at the hotel.

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.

This was a wonderful tour of both Giverny and Versailles with seemingly perfect timing being first in the doors for the opening of the Gardens and missing most of the crowds that grow throughout the day.

It was excellent tour! Claire has profound knowledge of the subject matter. I highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful day with Michelle with showers and sunshine. It was a pleasant day.
