A Recent Review of this tour

Hugo was the perfect guide for the Louvre and Musee D'Orsay. He brought a depth of knowledge and historical and cultural context to both buildings and their artworks. He guided us deftly through the collections and, while allowing us to follow our own eyes, steered us toward particular works of art for their relevance and significance. He did an excellent job of explaining graciously what he saw and what he wanted us to see. Hugo had a way of swiftly and succinctly opening our eyes to what was before us.
