Highlights
    What to Expect
    Make your way to the front entrance of the Musée d'Orsay, where you will meet your guide by the large statue of an elephant. 

    Skip the often-long line for entry to the famous museum and proceed directly inside with your small group of 20 people or fewer. Begin your exploration of the world-renowned collection, featuring iconic works reproduced on posters, magnets and t-shirts. 

    Learn about the Impressionist period through the world's largest collection of Impressionist paintings. Get up close and see the individual brushstrokes on some of the most famous paintings, a painting technique that was fervently criticized at the time. See works by many French painters such as Renoir, Degas and Monet. Although Van Gogh was Dutch, his famous Starry Night is a representation of the French city of Arles, overlooking the Rhône. View Renoir’s Impressionist masterpiece Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette, a depiction of a typical Sunday afternoon in the Parisian district of Montmartre. Through your guide's commentary, allow yourself to be transported to Renoir’s 19th century Paris, where his dancing, drinking Parisians eating galettes will come to life. 

    After your tour has concluded, feel free to spend as long as you like exploring the collection on your own.

    Great museum and well done. . Don’t book thru Viator. We were 5 minutes late and the tour left without us. No phone call text or e mail and when we called the tour operator they were very rude. Would not even get in touch with the guide to allow us to join the tour. Not even

    Hello LightPacker757152, Thanks very much for taking the time to post a review. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your experience in the Musee d'Orsay. We are very sorry to hear that you missed your tour. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate late arrivals for our group tours. We ask our clients to arrive 15 minutes prior to the departure time to check in so that the group is ready to leave on time as we have a specific entrance time to enter the venue and if we miss it then the Skip the line entrance is lost and the entire group is penalized. We know how difficult it can be to find your way in a foreign city so to help our guests we always provide our contact numbers and we're happy to offer further assistance when needed. At City Wonders we provide very detailed information for all our meeting points, such as GPS coordinates and Google Maps link on the booking vouchers. We appreciate your feedback and we hope that I have cleared some things up in order to avoid future disappointment. Thank you for your understanding and wishing you a lovely stay in Paris. Kind regards, Guadalupe, City Wonders team.
