A Recent Review of this tour

Virginie loved her subject and was very involved in it at the Musée D'orsay! We are elderly and my husband was having a difficult day healthwise, but she was very patient, nonetheless. Though he couldn't enjoy all the details as we examined artwork, I was fascinated by all she imparted. It is my opinion that without such expertise and guidance, this museum would likely be an empty or shallow experience. She's a real expert on the Impressionist Movement!
