Great experience
Del_M, Dec 2022
Learning about the artists and various important artwork. The history and information was excellently presented at a great level for my 10 year old (and me too).
Great Kids tour

Major props to our tour guide. Our 11 yo son was not feeling another museum tour that morning (we had just done the Louvre the day before and had already been traveling for a week). She was kind, engaging and so informative. She eventually won him over at the Opera House display and he is still talking about it! We were really pleased with the kid-focused tour and although my husband and I had been before, we left with so much more insight!
Perfect for children!

Thank you to Tatia who was amazing and kept our son engaged for a 3 hour + tour. She was patient, knowledgable and even took us outside for a tour. Much appreciation!
Great Experience w/ Kids

Musee D’Orsay has always been one of our favorite museums and remains so after this tour. We never hired a guide here before but decided that since we were bringing our teen daughter that a guide would help us make it more meaningful for her. We had a great guide who taught us things we didn’t know about the museum’s history and also provided more in-depth discussion on the large collection of Impressionist work there. She was knowledgable, kind, and great to talk with and my daughter enjoyed the visit too.
Excellent Private Tour!!

We chose a private tour at Musee D’Orsay with our 8-yo son - 2 adults and a child. Our guide Christiana (sp?) was excellent! She was so engaging with our son and so interesting. Even though we both were familiar with impressionist works, she taught us things we never new and we saw the art in a completely new light. Money we’ll spent! We were all inspired!
Anna was amazing!
Amy_B, Dec 2021
This was our favorite tour out of all of our tours. Anna was warm, kind, fun, and well-prepared to bring the Musee D'Orsay to life. She surprised us with fun opportunities to interact with the art, told great stories, was able to "read the room" about when the kids needed to take a break, and felt like a member of the family. In fact, my nine-year-old even said, "I wish she could be our nanny!" Note: we've never had a nanny, which I guess means she felt like she could be a second mom. That's some high praise!
Orsay with Kids - recommend!

Agathe was our wonderful tour guide. She was energetic, knowledgeable, thoughtful and patient with our five year old. She adapted the tour as she learned my daughter’s interests and also managed to fill us (the adults) in with great information. Recommended.
Wonderful way to appreciate art.

Our family of five was through the entry process and enjoying Orsay within a very short amount of time. Our guide provided interesting bits of history throughout the tour, allowed us time to appreciate the many beautiful works of art, yet keeping us moving to complete the tour. Monet was a primary attraction for us on this visit and we also enjoyed Giverny and Musee de l'Orange.

We took our boys age 8 and 11 to Paris and we are so glad we found the kid-friendly skip-the-line tour through Viator! It was worth every penny. Our tour guide was Valerie who was simply awesome. This was actually our second kid-friendly tour we did during our trip with the same tour guide, Valerie. We were so happy to get her again. She is so fun and informative. We buzzed right in past the li ne and she took us to the key points in the museum which would have taken us hours to figure out on our own. It was just long enough for the kids and we stuck around a little bit after the tour to see a few more things on our own. I can't recommend this tour and Valerie enough! We feel like we made a good friend in Paris.

Christiana was simply awesome. She was so energetic and clearly in love with the art and history. Very knowledgeable and super engaging. Tour was totally tailored to my daughter's interest and we both had an amazing experience. Would do it again in a heart beat.
