Skip-the-Line Private Guided Tour: Musée d'Orsay Orsay Museum
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.

We lucked out. Our guide was super knowledgeable and had some great inside stories on the artist. After the guide's tour you just want to know more about the Impressionist and their lives.
Our guide made the Orsay come alive! She spoke excellent English and was very mindful of expressing content appropriate for a 19 year old among us. She knew her art history and you could tell that she loved her job and the art. She shared wonderful stories and factual information about the paintings. She made the art come alive with her knowledge. She was helpful with suggestions after the tour, also. Thank you for a delightful tour?
We had two great guides our group of 6 was split into two, one of whom was also our guide during our earlier day-long walking tour of Paris Louvre, Ljiljana apologies if I have the spelling wrong. We enjoyed both of our guides and my parents, who had Ljiljana as a guide at the Orsay as well as the Louvre said that she was absolutely amazing. I was very happy that she was their guide. A big thank you from my parents, Ljiljana!
It was an amazing tour and our guide Caroline was amazing too. Highly recommend this tour to everyone.
