I'm interested in private tour at Giverny after hearing great things about it from a friend. Their guide is no longer providing tours. All the points I can find online only talk about trips from Paris with transportation included but we'll already be touring by car. Anyone know of resources for locating tour guides?
Try Tours By Locals. I don't know if they have any guides in the area, but it's always worth looking
I would really doubt that a guide would add anything to this experience.
I'll agree with Janet on this......unless getting there is an issue (and apparently for you it is not), a tour guide really isn't necessary. Just enjoy strolling the gardens and the pond area.
Thanks very much for the input. It’s a little pricey so it’s good to know it’s not necessary .
It is so crowded there it is hard to picture a private tour being very private.
Adam has pointed out the reason why a private tour might be worth it. I'm not an expert on Giverny, otherwise I might work there as well, but I bet there are places a guide knows where it is quieter. Even at Chenonceau (3rd busiest site outside Paris) there are a couple of places you can get a sense of calm even on the busiest day.
