Great tour with excellent guide Lillya, she was very informed and made our tour very interesting and enjoyable. We would highly recommend this tour. We signed up for small group and ended up being the only couple who showed up...a big plus.

Our guide, Belen was very knowledgeable but we were tired from the overnight flight and she stopped too long at certain spots. We didn't need to dwell on the nudity that is banned in the states. So much more good stuff to see you there.

From my experience, semi-private tours are worth the money. There were only 5 people in our group, so we were able to navigate more easily through the crowded museum (it's a high season) than a larger group. We had a great guide Mato who was very knowledgable about art, history, and art history. His tour was both very entertaining and educational, addressing the needs of us who have already visited this museum (although, many years ago) and a teenager who was in our small group.

Belen was an absolutely fantastic guide and there is no better way to take in this wonderful museum. our two daughters 12 and 16, my wife, and I learned more about European history in this tour through art than we have through schooling and her tour really reinforced a great deal the kids already have learned.

Belen's approach to taking in an impressionist piece is something nobody else in the museum was doing including evaluating changes in color, the illusions generated by distances and angles within the works and the true appreciation for the entire movement one can only get through the eyes of an artist who enjoys her work so completely. If you can request Belen, you should, you will not be disappointed. We had many tours throughout Europe, and this remains our family favorite and one we will be talking about for years to come.

Incidentally, the art work itself is the work to see if you want to enjoy color, perspective, and a movement that does not cover the history of mankind - the museum is much more focused and enjoyable and beautifully staged than the mammoth museum of the Louvre but you would still be well served to see through this private tour as there is so much to learn and appreciate.

This was an excellent tour! Being able to skip the queue was very nice, but the real excellence lies with our guide, Claudia. Claudia is brilliant! She is passionate, very knowledgeable, and just a delightful person. She communicates fluently in English. Claudia is a great asset to your company -- she ensured that we got the most out of our visit to Musée d'Orsay.

I would not hesitate to take a similar guided tour in the future. It's not just money well spent, it's an investment in your enjoyment and knowledge.

Thank you, Claudia! I hope that my comments are passed along to Claudia.

The guide, Lily, was amazing. It was a great tour--she was knowledgeable and made the museum not overwhelming. When there are so many works to see in a museum, being able to give a context which she did brilliantly is the thing that provides the heart of the experience

Great tour with a knowledgeable and personable guide made better by being the only ones on the tour.

Belen was excellent as I learned a lot that I did not know and I have been to this museum many times as well as a tour last year with a different tour guide. I find this tour to be excellent as you learn so much more with a local guide who provides more than just the art history but ties it into the country and culture at that time. Would highly recommend this tour.

Ljiljana Lili was just remarkable. Her knowledge with her sense of humor made this a perfect visit.

Knew our family with two teenage sons wanted to get the most out of our visit to the Musee D'Orsay so we splurged on this semi-private tour knowing she would provide us a richer experience than just taking a self-guided tour. We were not disappointed at all. We had a wonderful tour with Tina as our guide. She was terrific providing us great context and background to the museum as well as the key artists in the museum. It was a wonderful 2 hour tour through French Impressionism. You could tell Tina's deep knowledge and passion for the art. It was well worth the splurge to take this tour - we all thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Tina was the best!
