Claude Monet everlasting piece of art is truly this fantastic garden which is best seen in Spring or early summer, as early as possible in the morning.

Exceeded our espectations. We had Igor and a driver, so Igor was free to explain anything we asked. He knew to to get to the gardens first thing in the morning to avoid some of the crowds. His knowledge of France and all things tourism was great. He could discuss Norman history etc. Would highly recommend him. Pat
