      Our guide, Hervé, was phenomenal! His passion for art and history was infectious. Every museum we visited subsequently was a richer experience because of the knowledge he imbued. Simply fantastic! Do not hesitate to book this tour. We booked by chance, not knowing the tour company or seeing any reviews. We feel very lucky to have stumbled upon this tour.

      When we arrived from the metro it was raining. Our umbrellas served us well. We waited with others in sheltered areas until Wendy arrived at the scheduled time. What a perfect tour. She explained the highlights and concepts of impressionism art so well. We'll remember her tour forever. The tour was at 1015, we had lunch in the D'Orsay afterwards and spent the afternoon in the area. Perfect day. Thank you ! Don and Karen, Calgary, Canada

      Our guide greeted us at the appointed place (and waited the 20 minutes we were late due to bad traffic) and then skillfully and joyfully guided us through the Musee d'Orsay with wit and humor. She made the artwork come alive and we felt that we really learned a lot. We were able to focus on important sample works while not toiling through every single piece of art. That way we got through the entire museum in 2 hours which was about all we could last for. It was totally worth the money! Fantastic.
