Well, it's hard to go wrong with our private Paris Chocolate tour, an intellectually curious look at the world-conquering sweet that covers everything from how such an innocuous bean became so beloved to why Paris might be the best city for chocolate in the world. We also love our Musee d'Orsay Tour with an art historian, covering one of the most exciting and noteworthy periods of art. If we're feeling bohemian then let's alight to the 18th arr. for our Montmartre Walking Tour, where we'll learn all about Lautrec, Picasso, and the rest of the avant-garde community of the late-19th and early-20th century. Or, cultivate your own Parisian exploration—our Paris private guides are happy to tailor a custom tour to your interests.

We loved our tour of the Louvre Museum. Our guide, James, was very knowledgeable and kind, and kept us engaged for the whole of our 3 hour tour. Besides his illuminating descriptions of the artifacts, we appreciated James’ approachability. He encouraged us to share our own opinions, and used these occasions to spark discussions. His expert pacing and selections ensured we saw a representative sample of the Louvre’s treasures without getting bogged-down or sidetracked. We would strongly recommend Context tours, and especially James, to anyone interested in seeing the Louvre.
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.
Our Crash Course tour of the Louvre with Lorraine was beyond fantastic; it was a highlight of our five days in Paris. At the start of the tour Lorriane asked about our interests and goals, and then tailored the day to our desires. She is deeply knowledgeable about art history and led us on a smartly curated path through the museum, investing time in the early going to plant seeds of knowledge about history and artistic techniques that germinated later in the day as our tour progressed. She was patient with our questions, and was a strong advocate on our path through the museum against the sometimes over-zealous museum guards. We appreciated her use of the Louvre collection to demonstrate concepts such marble sculptural techniques, what’s so amazing about Greek sculpture vs. Roman copies, the difference between tempera and oil paintings and, as the conclusion, why the Mona Lisa is, in fact, worthy of the position it holds as the world’s most recognized masterpiece. Overall, the tour was a fabulous introduction to the Louvre and we would recommend it highly to anyone who has an interest in learning more deeply about the art on display.
