    An amazing experience! My fiancé and I took a tour with Belen. In one word: fantastic. She was passionate and extremely knowledgeable. As we walked through Musee d'Orsay, she gave us a unique insight into the lives of the artists and walked us through history. We learned an extraordinary amount from her, and would specifically recommend Belen to everyone.

    Excellent tour guide! There was some slight confusion at the beginning, on our end. I went into the Musee d'Orsay rather than waiting by the statue as the email specified. Once inside, the staff were no help and told me that GetYourGuide no longer operated at the Musee d'Orsay and/or that they didn't operate on Sunday. In the end it all worked out as I brought up the email and found the meeting spot. We had a small group of two couples which made the tour even better as we could ask questions at our leisure. Our tour guide was super friendly, knowledgeable, and used an iPad to give further information on key paintings. All told, the tour was about two and a half hours of pure art, art history, and history. Definitely worth the price!

    We had an informative and very pleasant tour with our knowledgeable and super-nice guide, Lucia! We ended up enjoying a private tour of 4 with a 5 month-old infant and Lucia could not have been more patient..babies take time and attention and she was perfectly willing to work around this... The museum is my favorite of the 3 we saw on this trip and Lucia added to our knowledge without being tiresome. Highly recommended!!1

    We had a really nice and knowledgeable guide who whisked us through many long lines and gave us a 2.5 hour highlights tour that felt like 15 minutes. Only 4 in our group. Very recommended

    We had the pleasure of securing a semi-private tour of Musée d'Orsay through Babylon Tours. The highlight without question was our amazing tour guide Liliya. She was exceptionally knowledgeable, professional, organized and genuine. Right from the start she impressed with answering all our questions, providing detailed historical insight and background that gave us more appreciation of the beautiful art. Liliya made this the best museum experience we've ever had. When we go back to Paris, there is only one choice for all our tours!
