Best way to see Musee D’Orsay for us ordinary but curious folks
Joanna_M
, Jul 2022
Our family of 4 really enjoyed our Musee D’Orsay tour with Napoleone Tour’s Mauricio. He did a great job of interweaving the historical time period and then comparing the types of paintings “allowed” by the Academy vs those that were rejected. And how a rising middle and upper class due to the Industrial Revolution, embraced these rejected painters. It was a wonderful 2 hours of history and art and we highly recommend this tour.

Making Impressionism Come Alive
TerryJ_L

Our 2 hour visit to Orsay Museum was outstanding. Maurizio (Napoleone tour) was the perfect guide to explain the beginning of the impressionists and a timeline of the different artists and the progression and development of each of their styles. We also appreciated his explanation of society's reaction to their art and the interlinking of the individual artists personal lives. I would recommend to anyone Maurizio as a guide and especially if this is your first visit to the museum of modern art.

This was a wonderful, eye opening experience led by a knowledgable lover of impressionist art.

I learned more details about the lives of the impressionist painters and how they related to each other.Their styles were unique and memorable and I enjoyed the comparisons our guide showed us.He brought their stories to life. Our guide, Maurizio was a wealth of information and he kept us moving quickly through the crowds so that we were able to see so much more in the time allotted.

Our guide, an art history major, was so knowledgeable that we learned things that would not have been possible on our own. Top that with his great personality. We really had a wonderful time and a lot of fun. He also had picture on his iPad so we could compare different paintings. If you want to have a good time learning about art, this is your guy.

What an amazing tour! Our private guide, Maurizio was terrific. I consider myself educated but know very little about art history. The tour was outstanding and I really felt that we got everything and more out of our 2 hr visit to the Musee d’Orsay. Very highly recommend!

Privileged to enjoy a 2 hour private tour for 2 with Mauricio. He was educated, interesting and humorous. Made his points but also willing to tailor tour to our interests. Museum focuses on 19th & early 20th century art, perhaps my favorite period. And the former railroad station, offering panoramic views of Paris from the top floor, is magnificent. Look up Mauricio; you won't be disappointed.

Our first major outing in Paris was to the Orsay Museum. Everything went fantastic with the museum itself and our SUPER guide, Mauitcio, being incredible. He had an obvious passion for the art, was very humorous and extremely knowledgeable with many wonderful antidotes. I not only give a high recommendation for this tour, but wouldn't even think of not having a guide like Mauritcio for an in depth experience!

our guide was wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable as he had a degree in Art History and was passionate about the art and he brought the paintings to life while interjecting a tremendous amount of history about the artist . Loved the private tour - museum was very crowded - suggest early tours for this location but skipping the line was the best. Fabulous museum - wonderful impressionist exhibit - a lot of walking so wear good supportive shoes

Absolutely Wonderful!

Mauricio was an outstanding person and excellent tour guide. He held a degree in art history and used his vast knowledge of art to make our experience at the Musee' d 'Orsay unforgetable! He provided us not only with an understanding of the artwork but of the history and context in which the art was created. He made meaningful connections between the art and the realities of 21st century life. The time went so quickly . . . we could have stayed for another 3 hours and still not tired of listening to Mauricio. What a fabulous experience!

Best way to see d’Orsay

My wife and I had seen the Orsay on our own on our last trip to Paris and opted for a guided tour for this trip. It was night and day. Our guide proved insights that we would never have seen. He was extremely knowledgeable and interesting without being overwhelming. This was well worth the cost without considering not waiting in line.

Great Way to Learn About Impressionist Art

This was an excellent experience! Mauritzio, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and for a little over two hours he guided us and explained the art we were seeing as well as putting it into historical context. The Musee d'Orsay, itself, is very beautiful and the collection is very large. The guided tour really made our visit so much more meaningful than if we had gone on our own! I would highly recommend this tour for those who want to learn and enjoy!

This was the most amazing place to see. Our guide, Vincent, was first class! I highly recommend the private tour. We were a group of 4 and saw more than I would have imagined. Don't miss this museum. I know everyone loves the Louvre, but I love this one more!
