What You Can Expect

Skip-the-Line: Louvre Museum & Musée d’Orsay Semi-Private Guided Tour

Visit the Musée d'Orsay during your small-group tour

Begin your art immersion tour by meeting your guide at the grand pyramid outside the Louvre. The tour is chronological, so you'll start with the ancient Greek relics at the Louvre and work your way through the centuries at the Louvre before heading to the Musée d’Orsay to continue your art education with the French Impressionist movement.
This skip-the-line small-group tour means you get to walk right past the long line outside the Louvre and dive into your 2-hour Louvre tour right away. The museum is huge, and can be overwhelming, but with an expert guide to lead the way you'll be assured of not missing any of the important pieces in the expansive collection.
See world-famous pieces by the likes of Raphael and Delacroix, the gentle curves of the 'Venus de Milo,' the tragic scene of 'The Raft of the Medusa' and the sly smile of the 'Mona Lisa.'
Take a midday break for lunch (own expense) at a nearby restaurant or cafe, accompanied by your guide, followed by a 10-minute walk to the Musée d’Orsay on the other side of the Seine River. The beautiful building housing the museum was once a train station – the Gare d'Orsay – and now contains more than 4,000 pieces of art by 19th-century masters like Monet, Rodin and Van Gogh.
Again, enjoy skip-the-line entry at the Musée d’Orsay to avoid waiting, and begin your 2-hour tour right away. Learn about the French Impressionist movement, begun by artists like Renoir, Cézanne, Manet and Gauguin. Hear about what made their techniques revolutionary as you listen to your guide's insights into the Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings you'll see in the museum.
At the conclusion of your tour, you can enjoy more time to explore the museum's collection at your leisure.

Belen of Babylon was amazing. She was considerate of the pace of the tour and allowed moments for us to sit while she spoke. My husband commented that we had our own and #34;female Indiana Jones and #34; tour guide. If you want to learn a lot and to enjoy your day... this is it.

Lily, our guide, was wonderful. This tour was perfect: just our family of four and Lily. She engaged our kids, shared great info of the museums, took us to key art pieces. This was a pricey event. However, we would have gotten lost and frustrated if we went to both museums on our own. No time wasted on waiting in line.
