Thank you to Carolina who really introduced me to the “impressionist story” I am inspired!
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!
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.
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.
Violets was our guide and she was excellent Best tour guide that we have had in Paris. Very knowledgeable
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.
Wonderful tour through the masterpiece
Clearly spoken knowledgeable guide.
Our guide was informative and moved quickly through the museum. We were very happy with this tour.
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
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.
Our guide was outstanding. She showed as the major works and provided excellent context
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!
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!!
Our guide had a wonderful depth of knowledge and passion for the artists and their works. We learned a great deal about their background and the reasons for their subject choices.
Violet was a great and enthusiastic guide, whom to listen to was a real pleasure.
Our guide was able to explain the movements in art in the context of the political and social environment of their time. A wonderful experience - Cannot say enough about our for guide.
Não deixe de conferir! O Museu tem um acervo robusto de pinturas, nossa guia era francesa e tinha bastante conhecimento sobre as obras e artistas.
We had a great tour of the museum. There is so much to see, but our guide walked us through all of the highlights. She made the large museum seem manageable.
Our guide (?Katrina) was super! Her narration of the art history kept my attention (and my 3 kids) the entire time. She was so knowledgeable and funny. Would recommend this tour but the guide is who made the tour so interesting.
