Our in-depth walking tour of Rouen with Marianne brought history to life. Her highlights of the town left you feeling a part of history. To finally see Monet's beloved cathedral in the flesh was remarkable.The pleasant drive to Giverny which followed was filled with anything/everything Monet and did not disappoint. Again, our driver Guy, was superb. The charming stops and French lunch, in a charming cafe afterwards, made the day one to remember for a very long time. Marianne is as thorough as she is fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again dear Nicholas! You have no idea how much we are touched by your lovely words. As you can see, we are very passionate and so you are. We felt so well with you as if we have been friends for ever. Remember that Guy loves surgeons! So I do too! Our best regards Marianne and Guy

Marianne picked us up at our hotel in Bayeux, France right on time with a smile and wonderful disposition. Our special itinerary took us to Honfleur and Rouen for tours and lunch. Then Marianne dropped us off in Giverny where we were to visit Monet's Gardens the next day on our own. Marianne was fantastic! An historian and professional guide all wrapped up in one. Marianne took us down fascinating back alleys and corridors we would have never found on our own. This was a day to always remember.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael I am very touched by your lovely comment. It was such a pleasure to share history and art with your party. Your interest and curiosity definitely inspired me! Thank you so much for your rating which encourages me to keep on learning. My best regards Marianne
Rouen was better than we hoped for because Marianne was so knowledgeable, funny, energetic, passionate & easy to be with. We got a good sense of the city, its history & unique charm. Then on to Giverny, arriving in time to see Monet's gardens, house & hear Marianne's delightful stories about Monet's life & art. Over the years, we've had many guides all over the world. Marianne is among the best in terms of her perfect English, knowledge & the pure enjoyment we experienced in being with her! Superb!
