Our Crash Course tour of the Musee d’Orsay with Marie was fantastic. Marie is an artist herself and as she led use through the collections she highlighted not only the historical context in which the works were made (which was truly eye-opening!) but also the techniques that were used by the artists, which deepened our understanding and greatly enriched our experience at Orsay. Marie was patient with our questions and extremely knowledgeable about the Museum’s collections, and the curatorial decisions made (and not made!) by the Museum’s curators. Overall, this was a fabulous experience for our family of four (including two teens) and we would highly recommend this to others.
Simply said, Lorraine was incredible. Her knowledge on the subject matter, her delivery and her approach were superb. Even our teenagers were fully engaged in the tour.
Lorraine was an excellent, interesting and informative guide, and she really made the tour memorable.
