      Exceeded expectations, the reflections of autumn leaves and japanese bridges were well worth the trip. With a small group, we got in first and had the place to ourselves until the big buses arrived.

      We had a early morning trip to Giverny with JB as our driver/guide. From the moment we left the cafe until we returned we were educated, entertained and delighted by this experience. Five stars isn’t enough for JB and Blue Fox Tours. When we return to France we will definitely be signing up for other experiences with Blue Fox Tours. Thank you!!

      The guide was on time and very helpful with the passengers who had mobility challenges. Our guide knew a lot about Monet and his property and shared it well. We had an appropriate amount of time at each location. Very good tour!

      Had a really enjoyable time on this trip. We arrived at the house before opening time, and were one of the first groups into the garden. Having a small group was wonderful. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the art, and was delightful. Highly recommend.

      Our guide and other tourists were early to the meeting spot, so we were able to head off right on time and arrived at the gardens about 15 minutes before they opened. This was perfect because we were the first through the gates and were able to spend a few moments basically alone in the Japanese gardens. Our guide, “Momo”, was a good driver, kind, and knowledgeable. The grounds, house, and church were spectacular and I highly recommend this half day trip from Paris. (PS I did think that a half day was enough, but could easily have spent a full day!)

      This was an amazing day. Our guide, Elias, was very informative and made sure that we were taken care of. When the man at the entrance would not allow us to retrieve my handbag from the car and re-enter (I wanted to shop at the gift store), Elias came to the rescue and got us back in! There were 5 adults and 2 children on our tour and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We were glad we took the 8am tour because people were beginning to fill the gardens after we left the Japanese Garden. Elias had made certain that we went there first and we almost had the place to ourselves for awhile. The gardens were spectacular, almost everything was blooming except the iris. We were delayed leaving because the wife of the President of France was also visiting! There were security forces everywhere. We were glad that we also saw the grave site and the small church near the cemetery. All in all, our favorite tour in France!

      highly recommend this tour. Our guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and entertaining. Because it was the end of the season it ended up only being the two of us and he continued with the tour regardless. We saw Monets house, gardens and water Lilly’s as well as his grave site. Worth a visit! Can’t thank Viator enough!

      This tour was by far our favorite tour in our visit to Paris. Our guide was very interesting and full of knowledge of the French countryside and all things Monet. The gardens Monet created were beautiful and relaxing, and it was so inspiring to see where the man himself got his inspiration. The view from his bedroom window is so peaceful, and I kept thinking how I'd love to wake up to this view everyday! The short trip to his gravesite and the old church was very touching. Our guide explained the memorial to the downed British pilots, who were shot down there the day after D-day. This was such a wonderful visit, and we ended up having dinner with a fellow traveler from our tour. Don't miss this fabulous tour.

      It was really nice to have a small group half-day tour. It was supposed to be 8 people, but 3 didn't show you HAVE to be on time!, so it was even smaller! We got to Giverney AHEAD of the big bus tours, so you could get a quick look before the masses arrived. I would go to the Japanese garden first since it's the most popular and easier to get around with fewer people. Better pictures, too. Our guide Guilleame was really pleasant, well-informed and drove safely. We also stopped at the little church where Monet is buried. There was also a memorial to an RAF plane that crashed nearby in WWII.

      The cafe where you meet for the tour not far from the Arc de Triomphe but I can't remember the name is open early. So get there ahead of schedule and you'll be able to stop in for a coffee and croissant.

      Great half day trip. Our guide was knowledgeable and got us into the gardens before the river cruise tourist groups got there. The gardens, house and grounds are definitely worth the visit! Seeing Monet's grave and learning about his family was an added bonus!

      The tour of Monet's gardens was excellent. The gardens are beautiful and I got lots of great photos..Going on this tour allowed us early entry to the garden and we had some time to see it before the crowds entered.

      This was an amazing experience. Our driver got us there early so we could have the gardens to ourselves before the hordes showed up. The tour guide also did a really good job of integrating the group -- I was solo but felt like I was touring with friends. Must do!

      Yas, our guide was a fabulous host. Yas was wise in a very punctual start. The drive was smooth and fun to Giverny.He was knowledgeable and kind. Yas shared facts and an understanding of the Monet Life. Yas made all of us feel very comfortable, we could ask him questions with great ease. Yas also helped us with a few concerns in Paris.

      This was an exceptional excursion because we were the first group to visit the gardens and Monet's home so I had the opportunity to get some awesome photos before the crowd of tourists arrived. Nicholas was our guide and he made sure we were well briefed on details and was very in tune to our group! A must do for sure!

      Our guide was fantastic and the grounds of Giverny breathtaking. The half-day was sufficient to see all we wanted to see. If we were to return to Paris we would probably repeat this tour if only to see the grounds again. Also the convenience of being picked up and not having to drive in Paris!

      This was an excellent tour, the guide went out of his way to make sure that we had plenty of time to see Monet's Garden and also added a couple of side trips in to make the entire trip more interesting. I have used Viator now in several different countries on several trips and have been pleased each time.

      Loved seeing the gardens that inspired so many of my favorite works! Absolutely lovely place, super gift shop - spent way more than I intended. Make sure to visit the Marmottan Museum if you enjoy Monet.
