Authentic trip to 19th century France province, estate & entire Giverny village are preserved. Garden & pond are kept in immaculate condition, house is fine as well. The only downside; museum has no original Monet's paintings, even though copies look just like it

This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. And to see the spots where Monet painted his masterpieces is thrilling. The tour through his home gives insight to his genius and humanity. The village is also delightful. Do not miss visiting here!

So glad we went to see Monet's house and gardens! Truly and unforgettable and beautiful experience! The only downfall could be transporation to get to and from there! We used a taxi from Versailles (110 euros eek) to Monet's house. My excuse for the expenditure? Well it was scorching HOT in Paris and surrounding cities when we went so AC... More

I am more impressed now than during my visit. The individual beauty of the flowers was greatly enhanced by their volume and arrangement. In fact, there are two gardens and while one is more an intense walking-through experience, stopping in between the tourist groups; the water garden could be enjoyed in a more relaxed manner which we did twice. Monet's... More

It could have been so much better..... I am not a real Monet fan, but my travelling companion had it on her bucket list. I had to queue for two hours to get the tickets to get in..... Much fun with the Irish family in front, sending lots of different messages on via their twitter / social media connections. No... More

Be prepared for crowds. There is a constant stream of visitors from all over the world who appreciate Monet's art and want to see the Water Gardens, flower filled (800 types) grounds and his restored home and studio. Amazing!

I have been in this garden 15 years ago : we could walk everywhere, even with lots of people we did not feel the crowd. Now we came back in August : very long queue, too much people in the alleys because they have shut most of the small access of the garden, so no rest to admire the beauty... More

We came here with Viking River Cruise, so had the place to ourselves for 30 minutes. Long walk about to get in! There is handicap entrance. The gardens were just stunning. Everything possible was still blooming and well maintained. Monet's house was interesting but a quick walk through. I spent my time with all the flowers and then the water... More

I have always been a Monet fan but his gardens were beyond any expectation. The long rows of flowers were incredibly and artistically color coordinated. The lily pads were in full bloom . An experience NOT to be missed by any art lover, or even anyone who appreciates art. A must.

We made our own way from Paris which was easy but not particularly cheap. The buses between the station and garden are infrequent so plan your day. As August is the French holiday period it was fairly quiet early on. We never felt crowded and went around calmly and unhurried. The staff were very polite and unobtrusive. Everything was well...
