Awfully rushed
Kathy_F
, Oct 2021
While we learned a lot about the history and context of the extraordinary pieces of art, we were so rushed and RAN between art pieces with no time to look or admire. We could have stayed longer, but part of the problem was that headsets could only be checked out for a limited time, actually less than the published length of the tour. The guide was anxious throughout, so not relaxing for the tourists
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Dear Kathy, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to read that you found the tour rushed. It's true that all groups visiting the Musée d'Orsay have to use the museum headsets during their visit, and that the duration of guided visits is limited. We of course do our best to comply with the rules in place. Our guides aim during the tour is to show you the very best of the museum, picking out the major highlights, explaining and linking them in a way that gives you a good understanding of the works, the artists, and the incredible changing times they lived and painted through in Paris. They want to give you an understanding of the major artistic movements of the time, particularly Impressionism, allowing you to fully appreciate all the beautiful works on display in the museum which you are able to stay in at your leisure after the visit. It's always hard to pick what to show you in such an amazing museum as the Orsay, and our guides want to ensure you see and learn as much as possible during your visit. They are passionate about the works and want to show you as many as they can. We very much hope that your tour allowed you to understand more of the works and that you were able to remain after your visit to enjoy them longer. We will take your feedback to our team of guides and work on ensuring that our guests see as much as possible without being rushed. We appreciate you taking the time to tell us and will use your feedback to improve our guest experience. As you saw, our team of guides love their work and always want to go the extra mile, reducing what they show you is not always an easy task! We hope you had a great stay in Paris and would be very happy to welcome you again on future visits.

Excellent visit to the Musee d’Orsay

This tour of Musee d’Orsay was excellent. Our guide, Sylvie, was very knowledgeable, personable and informative. She explained various important pieces of art in a way that was easy to understand and interesting. Her English was perfect. There were only 6 people on the tour so it was easy to see and hear. Sylvie did not limit us to the two hour scheduled time frame and stayed longer. This was actually my second visit to the Musee d’Orsay and I learned much additional information about the museum, the artists, etc.

Overall, Glad we did the tour

I have used Viator tours for the 2nd time here (after Versailles tour, which was amazing!). However this one was a little boring for my 3 teenage kids. I found it helpful to understand the impressionist era, however some of the tour was over-explained and dragged a bit. Overall, I’m still glad we took the tour because we would not have understood the history behind the art otherwise.

Our tour guide Caroline was the best! I have toured the Musee d'Orsay many times and honestly this was the best trip to the museum. Caroline was knowledgeable and eager to answer all our questions. It was a great experience.

Our tour guide Ferit was incredible! We got stuck in traffic and showed up quite late but he had left our name with security and we were able to find him after all! He walked us through the museum and explained all of the different stages of art and how they developed over time. We were captivated by his presentation style and his wealth of knowledge! 10/10 would recommend!

Very good tour but expensive. I would recomend the tour if it was cheaper. Not good value for the price
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Thank you for your review. We are very glad to read that you enjoyed your tour, but sorry that you felt it was expensive. We work hard to ensure that our tour prices are very competitive, we include all tickets and skip the line reservation slots for our groups. It's also extremely important to us to ensure that we compensate our excellent team of guides appropriately for the wonderful work that they do sharing their knowledge and love of art and history with our guests, and that in doing so we support their valuable profession. We hope and believe that we have found a good balance, enabling us to pay the guides what they deserve and ensuring that top quality guides give our guests great tours for a good value price. We do hope that you enjoyed your stay in Paris and that we will have the opportunity to welcome you on other tours in future.
