This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Musee d'Orsay, 1 Rue De La Legion d'Honneur, 75007 Paris France

Paris’ other museum, the Musée d’Orsay, is the perfect complement to the Louvre. With your private guide, begin your tour through this converted Beaux-Arts train station with skip-the-line admission.

Inside, explore the artistic movements that led up to Impressionism and its colorful works. See Manet’s scandalous Luncheon on the Grass and Renoir’s Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette. Discuss with your guide the artists who preceded the Impressionists, like Millet and 'the Gleaners,' as well as those who followed, such as Post-Impressionist artist Van Gogh, whose Bedroom in Arles is on display. And, of course, check out works by the father of Impressionism himself, Claude Monet, including his famous poppies.

Learn about the art evolution and personalities that went into creating the Impressionist movement, and understand why these seemingly simple works were so revolutionary at the time.

By the end of your tour, you'll have learned about techniques used by the artists, seen both the highlights and lesser-known gems of the Orsay, and admired the beautiful architecture of the museum itself.

Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

Alex (our Guide) was great in walking us through the museum by providing historical context, sharing stories about the artists and learning us insights about painting techniques. I personally found it very inspiring. Strongly recommended

Absolutely loved the experience largely because of out tour guide Edwardo. Without him we would've been left to wander the huge museum without the historical enlightenment. This was our second day with Edwardo, the day before we toured the Louvre. This event was by far better in every way (and the first day was great). This time I also had the opportunity to overhear a couple of the other tour guides and realized they didn't know half as much as Edwardo, nor did they present the information with such verve and elan. Edwardo is a real gem and I highly recommend him to any friend or family member when taking these tours.

Miriam was an outstanding tour guide for the Louvre. She focused her tour on what we wanted to see and included the three most important pieces. She shared the history of the Louvre and explained the details and background of each work, adding a modern and funny analogy to most things.

Thank you Nadia for sharing not only your knowledge of the great works of art but also your perspective and social context on them. We learned a lot and help us have a better idea on the challenges of the society of the different time periods which unfortunately in many cases we are still having issues with. Great tour!

Our tour guide was excellent. We were given the wrong address for meeting point on our reservation - very frustrating. We had to pay an Uber cancelation fee 11.00 euros . We had to rebook @ 15 eros. We want to be reimbursed 11.0. Thank you, Andy Trohanis
