  • Louvre and Musée d’Orsay combo tour
  • Enjoy skip-the-line entry to bypass the long queues
  • Get a comprehensive tour of each museum with your expert guide
  • Witness the Louvre’s most famous works including the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo
  • Immerse yourself in the French Impressionist movement at the Musée d’Orsay
  • Small-group tour limited to 5 ensures a more personalized experience
Begin your art immersion tour by meeting your guide at the grand pyramid outside the Louvre. The tour is chronological, so you'll start with the ancient Greek relics at the Louvre and work your way through the centuries at the Louvre before heading to the Musée d’Orsay to continue your art education with the French Impressionist movement.
This skip-the-line small-group tour means you get to walk right past the long line outside the Louvre and dive into your 2-hour Louvre tour right away. The museum is huge, and can be overwhelming, but with an expert guide to lead the way you'll be assured of not missing any of the important pieces in the expansive collection.
See world-famous pieces by the likes of Raphael and Delacroix, the gentle curves of the 'Venus de Milo,' the tragic scene of 'The Raft of the Medusa' and the sly smile of the 'Mona Lisa.'
Take a midday break for lunch (own expense) at a nearby restaurant or cafe, accompanied by your guide, followed by a 10-minute walk to the Musée d’Orsay on the other side of the Seine River. The beautiful building housing the museum was once a train station – the Gare d'Orsay – and now contains more than 4,000 pieces of art by 19th-century masters like Monet, Rodin and Van Gogh.
Again, enjoy skip-the-line entry at the Musée d’Orsay to avoid waiting, and begin your 2-hour tour right away. Learn about the French Impressionist movement, begun by artists like Renoir, Cézanne, Manet and Gauguin. Hear about what made their techniques revolutionary as you listen to your guide's insights into the Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings you'll see in the museum.
At the conclusion of your tour, you can enjoy more time to explore the museum's collection at your leisure.

First, if you're considering taking a guide - do it. You'll pass hundreds, if not thousands of tourists with headphones in their ear, all of whom utterly miss the point of where they are standing. You can't experience this kind of awe-inspiring history without taking it in with ALL of your senses and trust us - a voice in your head yammering away is not a fun vacation. Bellan, on the other hand, will completely change your trip. She's utterly passionate, extremely knowledgeable and she will get you through the museums in record time (all while being a font of knowledge to rival the librarians of Alexandria). We were smiling from ear to ear the whole time as we raced through the halls of the Louvre, learning the right angles to see artwork (and notice all those people with headphones on taking pictures of the wrong side of a sculpture) and most importantly - feeling like we were a part of history. Bellan will make your trip to Paris. Do yourself the biggest favor you can and request her like we did based on everyone else's reviews!

Oliver was so knowledgable and really showed us a good time. He was fun, interesting, asked a lot of questions and showed us the MOST important things to see at both the Louvre and Orsay. This is a MUST when in Paris and ask for Oliver!

There were only the 4 of us. Tour guide was OK but it would have been a lot better if we had a headset.

I like the tour guide, Belen who is extremely professional and is an expert in art and history. She is also very passionate to her job and extremely well in handling my two 9 years old daughters. The duration of the two museums went well for the first time visitors but if you want to explore further for Lourve, you have to go back after Orsay on your own.

Our guide Christina was amazing. She engaged my entire family on the progression of art from the classic to the renaissance to the impressionist and right up to modern art. She showed us the transition of styles and the reasons behind it that opened my family's eyes to art that we never would have noticed before. My wife joked that we learned more in one day than we did in a semester of art history in college. Christina kept the day moving and my kids engaged for the whole time.

This tour was absolutely perfect for us to see the highlights of the Lourve and Musee d’Orsay during our stay in Paris. Belen was an excellent tour guide. She was very educated in Art History which gave us such a wonderful experience of these two museums. I highly recommend this tour.

Atheni ? was great. Exellent English, and understanding of art style and history was remarkable. Obviously a student of art and art history, not just a guide. Made effective use of waiting time security lines to further explain history of period of art to be seen and use of an I-pad to augment this understanding by showing comparisons with other art. We really enjoyed both tours.
