by Emma P on Orsay Only the Best
Exploring the Musee D'Orsay

I recently did a tour with the delightful and formidable Steph. I live in Paris, so I have been lucky enough to visit the museum before, but never have I been so engaged and drawn into the art. Steph is a true storyteller with a never ending knowledge and humour that has you hanging off every word. She made this not just a fantastic tour, but a true journey back in time. Would highly recommend!! (TripAdvisor review, 14 December 2017)
