Our tour guide Claudia was amazingly well-informed. As she took us through the museum and showed us the famous works, she explained the differences in techniques among the various Impressionist artists, which really enhanced our appreciation of their work. Claudia also explained the historical significance of the museum itself, before it became what it is today. This tour was extemely worthwhile for us.

I loved this tour and I loved our guide. It was a rainy day and she was actually early, which was great. We got inside skipping the crowds, and she started us immediately. She shared her enthusiasm with us, and her knowledge. I loved how she gave us the not-so-obvious facts and information. She gave us the full two hours, and then we spent 3 more hours there! It is an incredible museum.

Claudia is amazing. I felt truly privileged to have access to her knowledge, passion and expertise in art. I could have spend the whole day with her. Also I had no idea the amount of education required to be a guide. I think she has at least a Master Degree in Art and Architecture! Very, very, smart, talented young lady. I highly recommend taking this tour.

We all loved this tour and our guide, Claudia, was excellent. She guided us through the museum telling us the history both of the building and the impressionism how it developed and changed the art history. It is the first time we have a private guide to a museum but it will not be the last time, thanks to Claudia!

The tour was everything we expected. Just the two of us, with the guide who gave just the right amount of information regarding the museum, its works, and the history. Never felt that the tour was rushed. Excellent guide highly recommend.
