This was a must do for my wife so we went with a very small tour six of us in total. The guide was very well versed in Monet's background and the location and I felt like we had a personal tour and just about the right amount of time to see and understand the location with her insight. I would recommend the smaller tours if you are visiting a location that is a must see for you. We've done several tours and although more costly, if it's important to you, go with the smaller tour.
Sarah was excellent and enormously helpful. Made it an outstanding experience. She is highly recommended
