Eduardo was simply spectacular as a tour guide of my favorite museum in the world. His insights and the way he led from decade to decade as the art of the 19th century progressed was extraordinary. I brought my 12 year old granddaughter to Paris for the first time, and she loved the d'Orsay enough to take photos of some of the paintings - a first! Eduardo was able to entertain a party of 5 Americans with disparate ages and interests. Truly a 5 start experience!

Our guide Marcel did a wonderful job. Our group included three generations and Marcel shared engaging stories about the artwork that both educated and entertained the whole group. Also, we toured on a Thursday evening when the museum was pleasantly quiet.

Our guide, Eduardo, was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable, came prepared with the backstory for each of the artists and their masterpieces and very patient to allow us to ask additional questions or take photos. The only drawback is how busy it was, there were people bumping into us in every room. Still worth it since there are so many incredible pieces housed here.

Daniel was an incredible guide! Highly recommend this tour. We got a deeply informed history about the artists and the museum's itself. There were only five people on the tour and despite it being a very busy day at the d'Orsay, it was also easy to hear and understand the guide throughout.

There are cheaper tours available, but the group size could be as many as 25. We decided on the semi-private tour with a max size of 8 to get a better tour experience.

From the start Babylon tours was nothing but professional. They sent a confirmation email (directly), later on an update with details on where to meet (photos included) with our tour guide's name and finally a reminder email either the evening before. I was impressed with the attention to detail before our tour even started.

We arrived at the Rhino statue about 10 minutes early and Lucia was already there waiting. Bonus! Probably since it was January and fairly cold, no one else signed up for the tour. So what should have been a small tour group, turned into a private tour.

The tour was great; Lucia was very knowledgeable about the building and the artwork. She would ask us if she was going too fast or too slow and didn't rush us when we slowed to take photos. I felt the 2 1/2 hours spent was the right amount of time without feeling rushed through or overwhelmed by everything.

I would definitely recommend a guided tour if this is your first time visiting the museum. There is so much too see and learn that you could spend all day there. Babylon tours as a company was great to deal with and Lucia was an excellent guide and we enjoyed spending our day with her.

Eduardo was absolutely fantastic. He was insanely knowledgeable, interactive, and made the tour very entertaining and informative. I love how he tied multiple artists and time periods together. The tour was perfect and there’s nothing I would change.

Amazing time with a great guide who was very informative and very engaging. She also seemed very passionate about what she was talking about and really cared about the art. I would definitely recommend going to the Louvre first since the art in here picks up after the art in the Louvre. Afterwords got to walk around and explore a bit on our own.

Julien was our tour guide & was excellent in all aspects. He clearly notified us regarding purchase of tickets, meeting place, & was timely in meeting with us. He made the tour an interactive experience by bagging us in discussions of various art works. He laid out a plan of moving us thrust art movements & styles that was easy to understand & greatly added to the appreciation of the art we were seeing. Would highly recommend as one of the best!

My wife was interested in taking this tour because she loves Monet, I didn’t expect to enjoy it so much myself. I was so wrong! The guide explained the evolution of art in a way that it made sense. I now appreciate Modern! This tour is informative, interesting, and fun, thanks to the guide Bellen (sp) that unveiled less famous but ground breaking paintings before hitting the stars of Impressionism. Lots of information, history, politics, great context. I will recommend this to all of my friends that come to Paris. Amazing, thank you.
