    I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants a personal tour privately, complete with history along the way. I highly recommend Kristina. She was extremely knowledgeable about the impressionists and other eras of art, as well as history of Paris. I would take a tour with her anytime.

    We did a full-day tour of the Montmartre and the Orsay Museum with Babylon Tours. We met our guide at the metro stop in front of the Moulon Rouge and then ambled through back alleys to the top of the hill stopping at sites of importance to the history of artists in the area. At the top of the hill, we toured Sacre Cour and then walked back down. After lunch, we took a taxi to the Orsay for 2 1/2 additional hours of in depth art history and interpretation. It was easily the best museum experience I've ever had.

    We ve done the tour with Belen which was great! We first went to Montmartre, she took us up to Sacre Coeur through an unusual way, not so touristic where she explained us all the history of the neighborhood and told us stories about the artists of the time. During the afternoon we went to D'Orsay museum where she was outstanding! She not only showed and explained the artworks but also gave us a historic background and teached us how to differentiate the different art movements and how they were related. I would definitely recommend the tour and mainly Belen!! Thank you!!!

    We had a fabulous time in Paris because of Babylon! Sam and Arnaud were wonderful and it helped so much that they were from the US. They provided context, helped answer questions and were frankly invaluable! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour plus Louvre and the Montmarte and Orsay tours. Without them we would have been lost and in fact once Arnaud left we did get lost in the Louvre. Fabulous experience and Thank you Babylon!

    Lillia (sorry for the spelling), was an energetic wealth of fascinating information. Clearly a lover of art and history she was able to make this tour a truly enjoyable and memorable experience!
