This tour was the highlight of our trip. We had an incredible tour guide. Her knowledge was amazing!!
If you can do it, I highly recommend this tour. My tour guide, Belen was amazing and I spent a wonderful day in Paris on this tour. She gave me a great tour of Montmartre and Basilica Sacre Coeur that was rich with history. After lunch, we toured the Musee d'Orsay and while she explained the different styles of painting associated with the Impressionist genre. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
A wonderful one on one tour with an exceptionally educated and experienced tour guide! I would do it again!
Our guide, Harriet, was fabulous. What a wonderful and informative tour. I highly recommend this tour as it provides behind the scenes insight into the Montmartre impressionist community and then ties it to the artwork at the d'Orsay.
Excellent tour guide with extensive knowledge of the arts.
What a GREAT tour and GREAT tour guide!!!! We lucked out with tour guide Belen Roncoroni. She was timely, informative and really customized this tour as she got to know us. A wonderful walk in the Montmartre area, shopping for art work with Belen's assistance as she is also an artist and a wonderful picnic lunch on the Seine River taking in all of the sites in the middle of it all. Then we moved on to the Musee where Belen really displayed her knowledge and love for art. We can not say enough about this Guide or tour. Getting to know Paris with this walking tour was the best!!!!
An outstanding time and we had the a ability to learn a lot about the area and the impressionists painters. Highly recommend this your. Our tour guide was excellent.
The guide went the extra mile in providing a great tour. She even customized to our requests. Highly recommended.

We met our guide, Laura close to the Moulin Rouge in Montmartre at 10am.
There were four of us plus Laura.
Her knowledge and enthusiasm for Paris, it's history and it's art, particularly the impressionists was excellent.
(She is Australian and has lived in Paris 3 years and spoke fluent French)
We spent the morning walking around various places of artistic interest away from the usual tourist traps and hoards of people. We chose the private tour to avoid large groups and it paid off enormously so it was well worth the extra cost .
Laura chose a local French bistro for lunch which was excellent!
We then went by taxi to the Musee d'Orsay which is former magnificent railway station on the river side.
You could quite easily spend a day here - the art is displayed beautifully - the Skip the line entrance gave us extra time inside and Laura chose specific areas to show us to enable a clear and informative tour of the great impressionists with lots of interesting facts.
Our tour ended there at around 5pm to allow us extra time to view the Van Gough exhibition which is superb.
Laura was a excellent guide, friendly,welcoming and very knowledgable - I would highly recommend this tour and particularly Laura !
lovely stroll thru Montmartre--thought we would hear more about individual artists but really did not learn anything new. But our guide was knowledgable and the trip thru the Musee d'Orsay was delightful. Montmarte has changed over the years--seemed like all the paintings were of the Eiffel tower and I missed all the wonderful landscapes and window boxes and shutter paintings that used to be there. Found a couple but not nearly the selection found in previous years.
