    Sylvanie is a wonderful guide and this tour was well worth taking. She is obviously a professional and was able to engage my father with compassion and flexibility. I highly recommend adding this to your experiences in Paris.

    We were really lucky as our tour happened to fall on a day where the museum admission was free AND my fiancée and I were the only ones booked on the tour that day. So it became a really personal experience where we could easily navigate the museum and see what we wanted and skip what we didn’t. Sylvanie was very knowledgeable of not only the art but also the building history itself. She took us to and pointed out all the spots that had really nice views. All in all a great experience without being too tired or getting overwhelmed with the amount of art/history.

    Absolutely fantastic! Sylvanie is an art historian and has expert knowledge of the museum and the artwork. She made the entire experience interesting and entertaining for our 15 year old twins. The tour was two hours – but she is so good, it felt like 25 minutes. Highly recommend the tour and cannot recommend Sylvanie more! Wish I could give her 10 stars!

  4. Elizabeth

    Sylvanie was a great guide around the Museé d’Orsay. Very comfortable personality to spend two hours with. She focused on just a few artists, but she covered the more famous works on display there. There is still much to see after her tour if you have the time to stay longer at the museum.

  5. Jen

    Sylvanie was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and engaging, even on a very busy day in the Orsay she helped to make the tour feel relaxed. She is so personable and easy to communicate with. She is extremely responsive by email and helped us find a website to purchase our E-tickets ahead of time. Highly recommend!

    Great Experience, I thoroughly enjoyed Musée d’Orsay’s visit with Sylvanie as my guide. I got to learn plenty of insight knowledge, which made this experience more valuable than I had expected it beforehand. It was a pleasure to be on a tour with such a fun, easygoing, and well prepared person.

  12. Haze

    Sylvanie was friendly and helpful. It made all the difference to skip the line at first to go through the certified group tour line. When we were in some galleries that were a little crowded, other people were tagging along. Sylvanie is very kind and offered to give tips in visiting other places as well.

  13. Diego

    Sylvanie was wonderful. She knows a lot about the history of the museum and its masterpieces. She was able to make me feel I was walking the museum with friends. I am very glad I was able to book a guided tour with her!

  15. Joanna

    Experience was well worth it. The museum was beautiful and Sylvanie’s expertise took it to the next level.

  16. Karen

    Sylvanie was the perfect guide for our two trip around Musée D’orsay. She was incredibly knowledgable and accommodated the tour to our needs flirting between rooms with wonderful stories about the paintings and artists that brought this world to life and helped make many links we hadn’t necessarily thought about before. Sylvanie was passionate about the art and it’s history and very easy to get on with. Her English was first class and we couldn’t have enjoyed our time more. Amazing art. Amazing guide!

  17. Laura

    Sylvanie was fabulous! She really knows her art history and is able to share it without overwhelming us. She has a fun personality and was very attentive of my father with knee issues. I highly recommend Sylvanie and hope our paths cross again.
