This small group tour will connect the artwork at the Musée d’Orsay with the neighborhood that was home to most of its artists, Montmartre. Step back into time to the 19th century, when Paris was living the Belle Epoque, when cancan dancers kicked high, and when artists enjoyed absinthe in cafés. Explore the cobbled streets stretching between the Moulin Rouge and the Sacré Coeur basilica, considered to be the home of the art movement known as Impressionism.

After a break for lunch, head to the Musée d’Orsay to browse the artworks painted by Montmartre’s famous inhabitants like Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir, and Van Gogh.

    This was an amazing tour! Our guide, Christina "Tina" as perfect: knowledgeable about the area/history, interesting and great with our 12 and 15yr olds. We loved seeing where famous artists like Picasso lived and their hang outs, going through Sacre Coeur and learning about the history of the area. Musee d'Orsay was a wonderful end to the day. Tina gave us our favorite day in Paris!

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Very informative and weren't rushed. Only the two of us, plus the guide, so very special.

    Nice walking tour of Montmartre, highlighting the history of the area, the life of impressionist artist Van Gogh who resided in this area (where we saw his apartment), and Picasso's local hangout. After lunch, headed over to Museum D'Orsay, a former rail station back in its day where a large collection of impressionist paintings are housed and explained by tour guide. Overall a great day.

    Lillieya served as excellent, knowledgable and entertaining tour guide through the maze of impressionism offered by the d'-Orsay. For each of more than a score of pieces, Lillieya provided the historic, artistic and political backgound and was able to highlight and compare the techniques involved in a meaningful and enjoyable manner. Lillieya is clearly very bright; and her enthusiasm is contagious. Overall, a wonderful experience!

    I visited Paris, France for the first time with my mother and Onno was our tour guide. He took us to see everything I wanted to see and sooo much more. He knew everything about every area we walked through and I learned so much more than I was expecting. He was amazing and personable and I highly recommend him!
