Giverny - Maybe

Jump to last reply

We've been to Paris about 5 times over the years, have briefly mentioned Giverny and then not bothered for one reason or other.

I've checked out going by train / shuttle, etc on our own and the cost is about 45-50E including admission. It appears to take a bit less time to get there by train than by motor coach.

Motor coach tours cost in the range of 85E and after travel to and from (total of about 5 hours including the visit) leaves about 2 hours for the actual visit.

We'll be in Paris for several days right at the very start of September.

We normally like to do things on our own and very seldom take coach / minivan tours.

On our own pros in no particular order:
Slightly less expensive
Come and go when we want

Coach pros:
They drive directly to Giverny with no changes or fighting to get on the shuttle
I assume with a coach you don't wait in a long line to enter though I could be wrong.

What I'm looking for is the following:

What kind of lines or waiting for shuttle and entry or crowds in general should we expect in early September and if we get there around noon.

If we have to get up at the crack of dawn to get in then we'd probably rather wander around Paris and pass on it. Enough to keep us busy in Paris.

Thanks.
