The best way to see these two Museums in a short time, the guide was amazing and we learnt so much.
Loved our guide! She was highly knowledgable, explained the history easily, good humored. Highly recommended !!
Outstanding tour. Only four in our group. Our guide, Belen, was knowledgeable and passionate about her subject.
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.
Katrina was a wonderful tour guide, very knowledgable about the works of art and also the buildings themselves. The hours flew by and we were very grateful she was our guide. Katrina also was a wealth of information on French history
The tour was incredible and our guide helped make it so. His knowledge of each piece was amazing and we had so much fun. His passion for his job was clear and helped us be able to say our day exceeded our expectations. The Orsay was our favorite--we highly recommend this opportunity. Thanks Alex!!!
Our tour of the Louvre and Museum D Orsee was wonderful, as Tina is so knowledgeable and passionate about Art History
Second time we have done this tour our guide was really good and informative, without the guide you would miss lots of things. The Musee d Orsay is also a must not as crowded as the Louvre but just as amazing would certainly to this again.
It was a very nice experience for me.
I was very lucky that I'm the only one customer so it's like a private tour, and my tour guide Lylia I hope I spell the name correctly is very competent with her background as history teacher, she has lots of knowledge about all the pieces in the museum.
The only way to see the museums if you don't know much about art. Our guide was so knowledgable and very nice to be around and listen to. I think his name was Alex but I'm not sure. He was open to doing whatever we wanted to do or see. It was obvious that he loved history and art depicting it. He got us tables at the bakery when it was busy and just took good care of us. I wished our tour was longer than 5 hours. Actually it was! He spent an extra hour with us at the Louvre but I was so interested in what we were seeing that I didn't notice at the time. He even took breaks to have us sit down a few minutes so we wouldn't get too weary on our feet. I think you should consider lengthening the time if it wouldn't scare people away. Or maybe a second tour, a day 2 option, covering different parts of the Louvre. We left him a big tip!
It was awesome. Guide was very knowlegable. I would highly recommend this tour.
Outstanding! The highlight of our trip. However, with this kind of tour, the guide really makes it. Our guide Belen was superb. She had a passion and knowledge of art that took us on a journey through the ages, marrying the history of France with each piece of art we viewed. We started our journey at some point BC as we entered the Louvre and six hours later wound up in the early 20th century at the Musee d'Orsay. I would recommend everyone who visits Paris and has any interest in art take this tour.
A small group tour is 5 or less and the experience was wonderful. Our guide was Christina and she provided great stories about all the art we enjoyed. The only downside are all the selfies from people who don't even look at the art. No fault of the tour, but be prepared.
Great tour ...Alex was phenomenal! He was so knowledgeable and really made our tour special. Anyone going on this tour should ask for Alex as their guide. Would do this all over again!
This was one of the best tours I ever experienced! Our tour guide, Carolina, was simply amazing. She was personable, engaging, funny and warm, and best of all, extremely knowledgeable. We would unequivocally recommend this tour to everyone!
Hillary is an awesome guide!! She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of art and art history. She was fun to be with and we enjoyed a lunch with her between the Louvre Museum tour and the Musee d Orsay tour. She was insightful and kept our attention throughout both tours. We cannot say enough about Hillary and hope you get her for your tour!!
Tina, our guide, was wonderful! She was extremely knowledgeable about the art and history and made the tour so very interesting. My two teenagers were enthralled with all the information. On top of that, Tina was friendly, personable, and flexible. She made the Louvre and the Musee d'Orsay one of the hi-lights of our trip to Paris.
Belén was so informative in our tours of The Louvre and Musee d'Orsay. I not only learned about the works themselves, I learned of the different periods of art, how they progressed and how they influenced not only the art world but the world in general. My Father who is a bit more knowledgable than I, being a retired high school art teacher, thoroughly enjoyed himself. Excellent tour, educational and fun, thank you Belén!
Chris was a wonderful tour guide and was very knowledgeable about both museums. Great day!!!
Our guided tour of the Louvre and Museé dOrsay was excellent. It turned out to be private, because my husband and I were the only ones on it. This made it super special. Lilia was our guide and we were very lucky. We are not what you could consider into art people. She managed to keep it interesting by linking history to the paintings, sculptures and objects of art during the visit. Time flew away and before we knew it, the tour was over.
Starting at the Louvre and finishing at Museé dOrsay takes you from ancient to modern. She took us to see many of the famous pieces housed at these two wonderful museums Diana, Cupid and Physique, Venus, Monalisa, Van Goghs, and many others famous artists. She told us about their personal lives while admiring the pieces, which are intrinsically linked to who they were.
Half day to discover and admire these treasures is short. They contain so many pieces of art that a few days would be the rule. But if time is short while in Paris, we recommend this tour to wet your appetite and come back for more on your next visit to the City of Lights.
