Your tour ends inside the museum, so you can continue to explore if you wish.

Our guide was knowledgeable, personable, and communicated clearly. We really didn’t expect much but her art history background and genuine enthusiasm kept us happy. Highly recommended and worth the time/expense. And this was not our first visit to the D’Orsay.
