Focusing on Paris’ Impressionist painters, your guide will talk you through the lives and works of Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh and Cézanne – all incredible artists of their time.

See the venues that influenced their art, like the building where Van Gogh lived when he moved here from Holland.

Unfortunately it rained the entire tour but our guide was great - funny, informative, genuinely interested in the subject matter. Would highly recommend it to others visiting Paris even if they know the city well.

Raphael was fantastic!!! I had no idea that the tour would be so interesting and beautiful when I booked it. I thought I was just doing it to get the skip the line tickets for Orsay, and we ended up loving our walking tour even more than the museum - it is a must do in Paris!!!
