Great immersive experience

Julien (the tour guide) was excellent! He enlightened us to the history of the pieces we viewed and answered all our questions. A must when visiting this museum!
Hooray for D’Orsay
Patti_S, Mar 2023
We had a great experience although the museum was very crowded. This could be in part due to the strike having closed the Louvre and Orsay the day before and is no reflection on the tour itself. Our guide Barbara was fantastic and very knowledgeable and adept at sweeping us through the crowd. Fabulous museum!
Must do tour of Musee D’Orsay
Mikio_R, Mar 2023
Excellent tour. Informative. Efficient. Alex taught us a lot and highlighted important facets of each piece and the movements they represented/affected. He also made sure to get us close to the important works for a better view.
Great art tour

Marcel was awesome. We had 6 people on our group and we covered key aspects of the museum. Very informative. I would highly recommend it.
Must buy to get the full Orsay experience
Aya_B, Jan 2023
I went to the Orsay Museum and it had a really long line so I went to look for fast passes to get in, not really expecting much from the tour but Anatole exceeded my expectations. I really liked the progression in which Anatole presented the artwork in Musée d'Orsay. He explained how we got to the Impressionist movement in a very organized and entertaining manner. This is my first time on a guided museum tour and I'm afraid that I can't go back to audio guides. after this.
One of our favorite tours

Lili was a fantastic guide. So knowledgeable! She is an excellent teacher and communicated so well. I went in knowing little about Impressionism and came out understanding so much more. My teen son really enjoyed this too. Lili was excellent in keeping him interested and asking him questions. The Musée d’Orsay is a wonderful museum. I highly recommend this tour.
Andrea, Nov 2022
Musee d’Orsay is a magical place. Lilliya was an incredible guide. She was so knowledgeable, friendly and warm. I learned so much from her. She’s truly passionate about art and it shows. I love the small size of the group as well.

Kotryna was very knowledgeable and engaging. I loved the visit to Orsay. My only feedback is to consider the little microphone headphones similar to the Louvre tour.
A-must-do-tour of the Louvre

We toured The Louvre today with John Edward. He was very informative and personable. Highly recommend!
Excellent tour and great...
Steven_H, Jul 2022
Excellent tour and great experience. Our tour guide, Elena, is knowledgeable, personable and very accommodating to the group. Met a very nice family, also from the States, good time all around. A basic understanding of art from different era’s would’ve helped me appreciate it more but still a fun experience for beginners. Also learned the history of the Museum itself which was part of the attraction for me. Highly recommend.
Freddy, Jun 2022
Great guide who was knowledgeable patient and enthusiastic. The art was incredible - especially Van Gogh. Our guide was the best.
Excellent museum and guide

Drew_D, Apr 2022
Lili was superb. Best tour guide ever. Incredibly knowledgeable. Very good at communicating the significance of each artist and painting to us in a way that engaged three teenagers! Perhaps the best tour guide I’ve ever had. Truly amazing. Highly recommended!
