    When we arrived from the metro it was raining. Our umbrellas served us well. We waited with others in sheltered areas until Wendy arrived at the scheduled time. What a perfect tour. She explained the highlights and concepts of impressionism art so well. We'll remember her tour forever. The tour was at 1015, we had lunch in the D'Orsay afterwards and spent the afternoon in the area. Perfect day. Thank you ! Don and Karen, Calgary, Canada

    Our guide greeted us at the appointed place (and waited the 20 minutes we were late due to bad traffic) and then skillfully and joyfully guided us through the Musee d'Orsay with wit and humor. She made the artwork come alive and we felt that we really learned a lot. We were able to focus on important sample works while not toiling through every single piece of art. That way we got through the entire museum in 2 hours which was about all we could last for. It was totally worth the money! Fantastic.

    Excellent!

    Our tour was excellent. Caroline was our tour guide with Memories DMC and she was excellent. She was enthusiastic, passionate, and knowledgeable. It was really interesting to hear backstories to works of art that were politically controversial at that time of history. I was really impressed on how she could teach us about the various schools of art. In the d'Orsay museum the pieces that are being shown are constantly changing so it is really impressive that she can go with the flow when the art changes in location and other works pop up - it really shows her knowledge base. I would definitely recommend this tour and was lucky to end up with Caroline!
