What to expect
  • Beat the queues and gaze upon some of the world’s most treasured artworks at the Louvre Museum and Musée d'Orsay on this private tour. Make your way to the Louvre’s glass pyramid and after meeting your personalized guide, sail past the lines of people waiting to get in and head straight inside. The Louvre’s five floors normally would make this museum visit daunting, but during your private tour, your guide expertly takes you to the museum’s most famous pieces and lesser-known gems, depending on what you’d like to see. Admire pieces Raphael, Delacroix, and da Vinci, and stare in wonder at the 'Mona Lisa,' 'The Raft of the Medusa,' 'Venus de Milo' and other legendary works. Revitalize with a lunch break (own expense) and then cross over the Seine River for a short walk to the Musée d’Orsay. Bypass the lines and head inside for your private tour. Housed inside a 19th-century Beaux-Arts building, the Musée d’Orsay boasts the world’s finest collection of Impressionist and post-Impressionist masterpieces, with more than 4,000 works on display. Learn about French painters like Manet, Renoir, Cézanne, and Gauguin, who paved the way for the modern Impressionist movement. Then move on to famous works by Eugène, Boudin, and Monet, and marvel at how they were able to capture the light sur scène. Masters van Gogh, Degas, and Rodin are also well-represented at the d’Orsay. At the conclusion of your tour, you can enjoy more time to explore the museum's collection at your leisure.

Hi,
It was an incredible tour at the Louvre.
Private entrance, no line up...
The guide was really well experienced and showed as much as possible the Louvre during the 2,5 hours I had.
It's so much easier with the guide, she knew what to visit and where like the Venus of Milo, the Mona Lisa but also many many other very interesting rooms, paintings and sculptures with a complete explanation.
It was 2,5 hours of excitement.
I've to come back, to much to see!

Violette was an incredible guide! She is very knowledgeable and passionate about art and it was a pleasure having her guide us through the extensive collections at both of these beautiful museums. Rather than being overwhelmed, I was engaged! If ever given the opportunity, I would love to work with her again. She deserves 10/5 stars!!!

Julien was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about art and art history. He moved us efficiently through the massive Louvre and Orsay carefully navigating a path that ensured we saw and learned about the most important works and pieces. He was very generous with his knowledge, experience and time and I’m certain we would not have enjoyed nor learned as much if we had spent days and days in these museums. Well worth the money especially for your first visit to these museums.

Perfect tour with my 17 y/o daughter. It was a busy day, but Anastasia was able to quickly navigate both museums so that we were able to see what we wanted in the most accessible way possible. The Mona Lisa wait was 30+ minutes, but Anastasia was able to get us right in...very VIP.

Great tours and made our trip to Paris complete!
