What an amazing tour! Our private guide, Maurizio was terrific. I consider myself educated but know very little about art history. The tour was outstanding and I really felt that we got everything and more out of our 2 hr visit to the Musee d’Orsay. Very highly recommend!
Privileged to enjoy a 2 hour private tour for 2 with Mauricio. He was educated, interesting and humorous. Made his points but also willing to tailor tour to our interests. Museum focuses on 19th & early 20th century art, perhaps my favorite period. And the former railroad station, offering panoramic views of Paris from the top floor, is magnificent. Look up Mauricio; you won't be disappointed.
Our first major outing in Paris was to the Orsay Museum. Everything went fantastic with the museum itself and our SUPER guide, Mauitcio, being incredible. He had an obvious passion for the art, was very humorous and extremely knowledgeable with many wonderful antidotes. I not only give a high recommendation for this tour, but wouldn't even think of not having a guide like Mauritcio for an in depth experience!
our guide was wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable as he had a degree in Art History and was passionate about the art and he brought the paintings to life while interjecting a tremendous amount of history about the artist . Loved the private tour - museum was very crowded - suggest early tours for this location but skipping the line was the best. Fabulous museum - wonderful impressionist exhibit - a lot of walking so wear good supportive shoes
Mauricio was an outstanding person and excellent tour guide. He held a degree in art history and used his vast knowledge of art to make our experience at the Musee' d 'Orsay unforgetable! He provided us not only with an understanding of the artwork but of the history and context in which the art was created. He made meaningful connections between the art and the realities of 21st century life. The time went so quickly . . . we could have stayed for another 3 hours and still not tired of listening to Mauricio. What a fabulous experience!
Maurizio was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and has good energies. He kept us fully focused with his information during the 2 hour tour. He showed us all the famous and key pieces of arts exhibited. We enjoyed the afternoon with him thoroughly. Great job!! Highly recommended!!
My wife and I had seen the Orsay on our own on our last trip to Paris and opted for a guided tour for this trip. It was night and day. Our guide proved insights that we would never have seen. He was extremely knowledgeable and interesting without being overwhelming. This was well worth the cost without considering not waiting in line.
This was an excellent experience! Mauritzio, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and for a little over two hours he guided us and explained the art we were seeing as well as putting it into historical context. The Musee d'Orsay, itself, is very beautiful and the collection is very large. The guided tour really made our visit so much more meaningful than if we had gone on our own! I would highly recommend this tour for those who want to learn and enjoy!
