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!

Maurizio of Napoleone Tours did an outstanding job of guiding us through Musee dOrsay! He has a wealth of knowledge about the history of the art/artists in the museum and took great care to explain things in a user-friendly way. We appreicated his friendly manner and terrific sense of humor. We enjoyed so much the time we spent with Im and highly recommend you book this tour! Grazie mille, Maurizio!

This was the most amazing place to see. Our guide, Vincent, was first class! I highly recommend the private tour. We were a group of 4 and saw more than I would have imagined. Don't miss this museum. I know everyone loves the Louvre, but I love this one more!

First of all, the Orsay Museum is incredible. It is a must see right along with the Louvre. The Orsay also holds great artwork but in a manageable space compared to the vastness of the Louvre. For my wife and I this was the best tour we had while in Paris. Our guide was Maurizio. He was very knowledgeable about the pieces in the museum but in addition he knew the background and history of the art movements and how they influenced the art pieces. This insight added greatly to the tour.
I would recommend this tour group and if possible request Maurizio.

This was a wonderful,insightful tour. Our guide took us through the various art periods with explanations of the stories behind the paintings and sculptures.

His knowledge about the various subject matter was fantastic. If you have limited time in Paris this is a not to be missed experience.
