What people are saying about Musée d'Orsay

Avi was our tour guide and was so knowledgeable and was a great joy to listen to during this tour. We were a group of 7 and it was just fine listen or ask questions. If we didn’t do that tour we would have passed on so many great facts and stories from some of those beautiful art! We feel that we visited this musée the best way and would recommend Avi as a tour guide! Thank you

Cécile was honestly passionate about transporting all her knowledge about Paris to our little group. There is no better option getting an idea of the city in such an adventurous, compact bike-tour.

Personable and informative guide

So helpful to my 89 year old mother - made sure she could hear and found lifts and escalators rather than stairs for us

Fantastic !!! Useful for those who stay for a short time. Experience to be redone

Informative, relaxed, fun and a great way to orientate yourself to Paris.
