I enjoyed the tour, although I had some troubles in the beginning of it, it was not clear where each part of the audio guide should start. I also missed some things announced by the audio guide, like the castles curved in the limestone, maybe they were closed for visitors this day or smth. Overall, a good tour, and it is more convenient than the audio guide provided at the spot.

The included audio tour was good but maybe a little short. Timed entry for Saint Chapelle meant that it wasn’t too busy inside (it’s quite small after all). Set aside just an hour for the tour.

All of this museum is incredibly moving. Petite enough to enjoy the whole experience! Beautiful! Walk the Water Lillies more than once and enjoy the silence!

Walking through the gardens heading to l’Orangerie, seeing the Monet exhibit, and everything about Musee d’ Orsay. Just a wonderful bundle of museums.
