All four of us, including my husband and two adult children, really enjoyed Giverny and the lovely lunch afterward in a beautiful setting a terrace at an old mill. However, we found Auvers-sur-Oise much less rewarding. Van Gogh's home was very hot and crowded. The guides at the home combined 2 tours 2 different Languages which forced everyone to stand in a tight, crowded,hot and uncomfortable space while the guide spoke in the other language. I would recommend doing Giverny and lunch and skipping Auvers-sur-Oise.
