    Great experience

    This made the museum more interesting to me, to learn about the paintings and the artists, and the history of the impressionist movement. Our guide was very informative and obviously cared about what he was describing. A good way to see the the highlights of the museum, and then we had time afterwards to stay as long as we looked and see more. Highly recommended!

    Very Informative Tour

    Took the tour on September 29th. Loved the experience. We were a small group of 5 people, which made it even better. Our guide was very knowledgeable and her passion for art was evident in her narrative. Learnt a lot about impressionism and neo-impressionism. Two hours is definitely not enough to cover such a vast topic and all the treasures at d'Orsay - but I would have been quite lost and missed important pieces if I hadn't taken this tour. Definitely recommended!

    The tour was excellent. Katerina, our guide was wonderful!!

    Our guide provided a wonderfully coherent overview to the Musee d Orsay. She was very knowledgable and conveyed her comments on each painting with insight and clarity. She was constantly aware of the group and encouraged and answered questions fully. She did a wonderful job and is a credit to your organization.
