Tina was an extremely wonderful tour guide. I went on a tour with 3 others on a Sunday morning, and this small group was perfect. Tina was very knowledgeable about art history but presented the tour in a way that allowed us to learn about the pieces in the context of French history and the changing culture of art. I would highly recommend it to others.

My fiancé and I took a tour with Belen. In one word: fantastic. She was passionate and extremely knowledgeable. As we walked through Musee d'Orsay, she gave us a unique insight into the lives of the artists and walked us through history. We learned an extraordinary amount from her, and would specifically recommend Belen to everyone.

Excellent. We had Lillie as our guide. She was super knowledgeable and helped us connect the dots between what was occurring socially to what was being painted at the time. She navigated the floors perfectly. She included some history that connected France to the US. Highly recommend the guided tours.

Felix was an exceptional adviser on the Musée d'Orsay . His insight to the artworks and interesting facts behind the history of the artists was amazing. It was exceptional to have such insights delivered in such a meaningful and understandable way. I would recomend Felix in the most highly terms. Look forwrad to seeing more of Paris with Felix's guidance.

This was an absolutely wonderful experience! Our guide Belen was extremely knowledgeable and patient. We had two young children with us and she was able to engage them and educate them all at the same time. I can’t say enough about how great our tour was! Five stars!

Alex is the best tour guide by far we’ve ever had! Inspired us to appreciate art at a different level all together! So passionate and so gracious in taking time to explain everything to us.. if Alex is your guide, your in the best hands possible! What an experience with him, we loved every minute of it.. only regret was it was too short, that too after 3.5 hours with him! I’d describe it as OUTSTANDING in one word, really blew us away!!

Our delightful guide was prompt, pleasant and very considerate. He was interesting and articulate. He had a well-considered plan for the tour of this great museum so that we could grasp the topic in a way that makes it possible to remember it. We definitely left with a greater knowledge of artists from late 19th century France than when we arrived. All-in-all, our tour was a wonderful experience and my husband and I consider this time and money very well-spent.
