Discover the unparalleled beauty in the Clos Normand and Japanese Water gardens of Claude Monet, in Giverny. You’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into one of his Impressionist paintings as you walk among the willow trees and cross the little green bridge over his pond of water lilies. Then you’ll explore the inside of his colorful family home, getting some unique access to whether the artists actually lived and worked.  After visiting Claude Monet’s home and gardens, stop at his tomb to pay your respects to this great man.  Afterward, visit the town of Auvers-Sur-Oise, where you’ll focus on the troubled life and unique Post-Impressionist art of Vincent Van Gogh. You’ll see the boarding house where Vincent lived the last 3-months of his life. Next, explore the little town and surrounding area, which inspired 77 of his paintings.  Visit the gothic “Church of Auvers” and walk in the actual “Wheat Field with Crows.” Seeing these places with your own eyes will help you to understand why Vincent Van Gogh found so much inspiration in Auvers-Sur-Oise.

Really excellent - our tour guide, Guillaume, was wonderful. The two sections of the tour, Giverny and Auvers, were both great, but it should be no surprise that Giverny is the star of the show. The Van Gogh section is quite sad, but illuminating.

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!

Our guide had the timing of our tour to the gardens early so we cold easily get pictures on the bridge. The day was well-paced with so much information.

Excellent! Our guide Guillaume did a great job. Very personable and well versed on the subjects.

Transportation was made easy between all of the sites.
