Musée d'Orsay Guided Tour with Skip-the-Line Access
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Musee d'Orsay, 1 Rue De La Legion d'Honneur, 75007 Paris France
Make your way to the front entrance of the Musée d'Orsay, where you will meet your guide by the large statue of an elephant.
Skip the often-long line for entry to the famous museum and proceed directly inside with your small group of 20 people or fewer. Begin your exploration of the world-renowned collection, featuring iconic works reproduced on posters, magnets and t-shirts.
Learn about the Impressionist period through the world's largest collection of Impressionist paintings. Get up close and see the individual brushstrokes on some of the most famous paintings, a painting technique that was fervently criticized at the time. See works by many French painters such as Renoir, Degas and Monet. Although Van Gogh was Dutch, his famous Starry Night is a representation of the French city of Arles, overlooking the Rhône. View Renoir’s Impressionist masterpiece Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette, a depiction of a typical Sunday afternoon in the Parisian district of Montmartre. Through your guide's commentary, allow yourself to be transported to Renoir’s 19th century Paris, where his dancing, drinking Parisians eating galettes will come to life. After your 2-hour tour has concluded, feel free to spend as long as you like exploring the collection on your own.

Our guide was fantastic, Her love and knowledge of art give us a great tour of impressionist painters.
This was an excellent tour with Zdravco, he said just call him Z for short. He did a great job showing us the museum and had a background in art. This tour is definitely worth the money and the museum is amazing.
tour was good. but we expected more
The tour itself was wonderful. But, following the tour we were supposed to have unlimited access to the museum. This did not happen because we had to return to coat check WITH our guide to retrieve our coats and bags we not allowed reentry after leaving to get our coats. Poor planning and lack of knowledge on our guides part caused us to lose a portion of what we paid for in entry! Solution: All the bags in the group should have been checked separately not and one unit so each individual could leave as they wanted.
This young tour guide did a great job. A smart way to tackle this museum in a short amount of time. All highlights were hit and guide was very professional and knowledgeable. We stayed after and walked around on our own. Headsets were a bonus to hear guide in a group of about 15.
