Wonderful Tour of the Musee d'Orsay
Nov. 2020
My husband, 15-year-old daughter and I have been to Louvre several times, and decided, on this trip to Paris, that we'd try something a bit different. None of us knew much about either Impressionism or Post-Impressionism, and so decided a tour of the Musee d'Orsay would be the best way to get the most out of the experience. And what an amazing time we had with Emmanuelle on our With Locals tour! From the very beginning, Emmanuelle was wonderful: she gave us specific instructions on where and when to meet her, she pre-bought the tickets so we didn't have to wait in line, and, most importantly, spent an incredible 2.5 hours with us in this lovely museum. She started off at the very beginning, explaining how multiple factors, including traditional approaches to art in France and the Industrial Revolution (among others) influenced the development of alternative movements and led to Impressionism and beyond. Her careful way of explaining the historical development of these artistic movements gave us such a greater understanding of the art and how and why it developed than we ever could have gotten on an audio tour or on our own. Each of us identified one or two artists that we felt connected to, and now have a much deeper understanding of this period of art. In the end, it was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon in Paris, and one that's given me a true appreciation of a school of art that I never would have expected. Thank you, Emmanuelle!!

Please note: we actually took this wonderful tour in November 2019; but, as Paris begins to open, we thought it might be helpful to post this review (written in November 2019). We're looking forward to spending more time in Paris soon, and hope to take another tour with Emmanuelle!!

First ones in to Musee d'Orsay
Jun. 2020
Sophie was such a knowledgeable and courteous guide for my mom and I through the Musee d'Orsay. My mom was having a bit of trouble keeping up with all of the walking that we did throughout Paris and Sophie made sure to find her a seat wherever possible. We learned about many of the pieces as well as the museum itself and were able to apply our newfound knowledge during our further travels on our trip through France. We both enjoyed the experience of having a private tour rather than a group tour - it was much easier without headphones! We took our tour right when the museum opened and I absolutely recommend that if you are able as it gets very busy and the crowds definitely do take a little bit a away from the art itself.

the only way to visit Musee D'orsay.
Feb. 2020
I will be the first to admit that I am not an art gallery person.. so
I was dragged along by my three friends but it was so worth it. I
learnt a lot about the art, the history of the building and it was a
fascinating tour. Julien was brilliant, he made the paintings come to
life with all sorts of snippets of information about the painters and
their lives. So despite myself, I had a fantastic time. Thank you
Julien, we had a great time. We'll see you when we decide to tour the
Louvre!

Don't visit the Musee D'Orsay without Sophie!
Sep. 2019
My husband and I have never been big "museum people." But now we realize
it's just because we've never been to a museum with a professional
before! Sophie is a gem. She is a wealth of knowledge and I enjoyed
every single minute of our tour. Not only did she give us context for
the paintings, but also context for the history and politics of the
period as well, weaving a brilliant tapestry of art, history, and
storytelling. This was our first ever WithLocals tour and we couldn't
have asked for a better first experience. Don't miss a chance to
choose Sophie as your guide to Paris!

Delightful & Extremely Educational
Emanuelle was a delightful, knowledgeable guide through this incredible museum. The value of touring the museum with an expert on art of the period was significant. We learned about the building, the politics, the culture and the fantastic collection of art.
She also did an excellent job communicating with us a couple days ahead so we knew her name and phone number.

AWESOME Tour
Jul. 2019 • Solo
Julien is AWESOME. Firstly I was impressed by his prompt and careful
organization. Nothing was left to the last minute. Julien took me
through the fascinating history of the Impressionists and the
unbelievable musée they are housed in. His knowledge of the history is
clearly based on a passion for art, and story-telling, and he and I
had a wonderful dialogue as well. Julien showed me some of the most
beautiful places I have ever seen! I fully recommend Julien for any
tour he offers, as he is an enthusiastic, knowledgable and really
positive guy. Thanks Julien!
