This is a sample itinerary:
First, we will go back to the love story between Paris and Artists in the 1800's. Relive the excitement of the 'Salon' and see how Impressionism could not have been born anywhere else. The expansion of the City of Lights, new technics and new visions, the sparkling Parisian nights and party-people. . . as a painter then, where else would you have dreamed to live?
We will jump into this fantastic era to discover this once beautiful train station now turned into one of the world's most re-known museum. On your right a copy of the Statue of Liberty, on your left paintings by Manet and right in front of you some of the greatest works by Rodin. You definitely are in the right place aren't you?!
Together, we will compare the Official Art of France' Second Empire and the Revolutionary Vision of the Impressionists.
As the tour continue, you will get to admire the work by their disciples from all over the world: Starry night by Van Gogh or Moulin Rouge by Toulouse-Lautrec. And much more!!

Bertrand was an exceptional guide who really made the world of the artists come alive for us. He captivated us with behind-the-scenes stories of famous paintings and helped us appreciate the works in a new way. The tour ended with a unique moment that only Bertrand could offer …. as he told the surprising tale of his own personal family connection to the paintings! Bertrand has my highest possible rating!
