Frederick is a terrific guide and host
Frederick was a terrific guide and host. He was extremely knowledgable about Giverny and Monet, as well as many other artists and French history. He really went the extra mile literally and took us through several smaller towns in Normandy on the way home. I highly recommend Parismatic!
Fred picked us up at our hotel in Paris and drove us to Giverney. Fred was knowledgeable, his van was comfortable and he prepared us to visit Monet’s garden. The drive back to Paris was lovely, through the Seine river valley. Fred continued to provide information. A thoroughly enjoyable and informative tour.
