Musée d’Orsay Highlights: Skip-The-Line Guided Tour

Enter the stunning Beaux Arts building of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and discover a treasure chest of French art.

Housed in a former railway station, the museum contains one of the world’s best collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. Skip the long lines, and enjoy expert commentary from a guide who will introduce you not only to the masterpieces but to the masters that created them.

Learn about a unique period of art history, and how it was harshly criticized in its time. See how painters, such as Monet, radically changed the way we view the world. Many of the museum’s most famous works are by Paris-based artists, and depict scenes throughout France, providing a pictorial history of the nation.

Marvel at Van Gogh’s “Starry Night over the Rhône,” and Renoir’s masterpiece “Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette,” a depiction of a typical Sunday afternoon in the Paris district of Montmarte. Discover highlights by Cezanne, Degas, Manet, and much more.

The tour was excellent. Katerina, our guide was wonderful!!
Our guide provided a wonderfully coherent overview to the Musee d Orsay. She was very knowledgable and conveyed her comments on each painting with insight and clarity. She was constantly aware of the group and encouraged and answered questions fully. She did a wonderful job and is a credit to your organization.

Violette, unse Guide, war ausgezeichnet.
Sie wusste sehr viel, und konnte begeisternd erzählen und uns mit auf eine faszinierende Tour mitnehmen. Sie wusste viel über die Geschichte des Impressionismus und über die Bilder. Es war spannend ihr zuzuhören. da die Bilder im Museum oft umgehängt werden und immer wieder an einem anderen Platz hängen beziehungsweise nicht mehr im Raum sind, mussten sie laufen improvisieren, was sie aber aufgrund ihres reichhaltigen Wissens perfekt bewältigte. Hier Englisch war fast perfekt und akzentfrei. Eine geführte Tour für 2 Stunden kommen wärmstens empfohlen werden. Es bringt viel mehr, als ohne Gight einfach von einem Bild zum anderen zu laufen.

Very Informative Tour
Took the tour on September 29th. Loved the experience. We were a small group of 5 people, which made it even better. Our guide was very knowledgeable and her passion for art was evident in her narrative. Learnt a lot about impressionism and neo-impressionism. Two hours is definitely not enough to cover such a vast topic and all the treasures at d'Orsay - but I would have been quite lost and missed important pieces if I hadn't taken this tour. Definitely recommended!

Great context for Impressionist movement
This guided tour started really well when our guide, Claire, skipped the line with our group and we went right in at 9:30am. I like that she started the tour promptly. Claire gave an excellent review of the French painting from the mid 1800s to the First World War. This museum is beautiful and much easier to navigate with a knowledgeable guide

Slightly confusing
Unfortunately, I arrived late to the tour approximately 5 minutes and there was no options given to me. I was eventually told that the tour group left immediately and that there would be no compensation. It was very difficult to figure out how to find customer service and if it is your first time in a new city like Paris I would recommend not doing a tour this early in the morning so you have more than enough time to navigate the city and bypass potential problems.

Beautifully told story of Impressionism
Nev (?), our guide, was really fantastic. She brought the story of Impressionism to life, walked us through key Impressionist works, and made the experience truly educational and entertaining. Our tour, on our last day in Paris, brought our artistic and historical experiences together beautifully.

paced like a slow BBC documentary with good information but takes twice as long to tell. And she waited until the end to get to the major stars like Van Gogh when it was most crowded. Poorly planned.

Fantastic - one of the best things we’ve done in Paris!
The best tour guide! Wish we could have him again - funny, knowledgeable, patient, and maximized our time in the museum and then some. It was like a crash course (or refresher) in art history, but interest and accessible for everyone. Can’t say enough about it - do it!

Fantastisches Museum, tolle Führung
Das Musée d'Orsay zeigt Bilder all der Künstler, die zumindest jeder schon mal namentlich wahrgenommen hat. Für Kunstfreunde und/oder -kenner natürlich ein Traum! Die Organisation hat grundsätzlich super geklappt, wir mussten auch nicht um Tickets anstehen wie andere, die bereits 1 h vor den Öffnungszeiten vor dem Museum angestanden sind... Doof ist nur, dass dann ALLE an der gleichen Schlange anstehen mussten - egal ob man ein Einzelticket vorab oder vorort erworben hatte oder mit einer geführten Gruppe am Weg war. Dafür aber definitiv die mangelnde Weitsicht des Museums-Personals verantwortlich und nicht unsere Tour-Guide Ina. Diese hat uns wahnsinnig viel erklärt und erzählt - man hat gemerkt, dass sie dieses Museum und die Kunst darin liebt. Ihr Wissen war enorm! Hier gab es keine Ohrstöpsel, also mussten wir genau hinhören, dafür waren wir nur 7 Leute in der Gruppe. Alles in allem: sehr empfehlenswert!!
