Description Edit

9.00 am: Be met in the lobby of your hotel.


Go on to the Orsay Museum. This former railway station was inaugurated for the Universal Exhibition on July 14, 1900. It was the first Parisian train station to have electric power.  In 1977, the station became a museum dedicated to the artistic creations of the second half of the 19th century (1848-1914).  You will discover a fabulous collection of impressionist paintings as well as art deco furniture and a large variety of sculptures. The visit is a must for those who wish to deepen their knowledge of the main Impressionist painters such as Renoir, Van Gogh, Monet, Sisley, Bazille, Manet and Pissarro.


Enjoy lunch at leisure.


In the afternoon, discover the Orangerie Museum. Completely restored, the Musée de l'Orangerie is located in the former orangery of the Jardin des Tuileries, a stone's throw away from the Musée du Jeu de Paume. The collection includes paintings by André Derain. Renoir, Cezanne, Picasso and Matisse, among others. It offers visitors a poetic and artistic discovery of two prestigious collections:

-Les Nymphéas (Water Lilies): they are the result of Claude Monet's artistic thought. These paintings were offered to France by Monet in 1922 and installed in the museum following his death in 1927.

-The walter-Guillaume collection: this collection was created by the art dealer Paul Guillaume and his wife Domenica and illustrates art in the first few decades of the 20th century.


5:00 pm: drop off at your hotel

We went through various options for our trip and Didier at Decouvertes was very prompt in updating the plans and quotes to accomodate us. the only issues that came up during the trip were the rental car agency who wanted to charge us twice and the hotels requesting to see a voucher of our payment. Both were resolved through discussions with their staff on duty, but I wonder if there could have been more information made available to us to show that we had pre-paid for these items.

We never had a moment of worry. Our guide John-Noel was so wonderful and professional. We had our high school Junior with us and we were able to see where history was made. It was so exciting to see him so interested and engaged. Thank you for making our trip an amazing experience!!! Excellent hotel recommendations and choices too! It was perfect for us.

The guides on our tours in Southern France were extremely knowledgeable and willing to please. They were flexible to our requests throughout the day to make sure we saw and did what we wanted, which we really appreciated. They were all very well studied in the history of the area and very passionate in sharing that with us. It was a pleasure to discover this beautiful part of the world with Decouvertes.

Descouvertes was an absolutely perfect travel service. Their arrangements of lodging and transportation were done to ensure the maximum of comfort and travel experience in our trip. Every travel guide who met us catered to our desires and demonstrated a full knowledge of the organization they were dealing with on our behalf, especially in airports and train stations. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the areas we toured and did everything to show us the things we were interested in. The Descouvertes service was essential to the overall success and enjoyment of our trip!

We were delighted with our guides. Their knowledge of history, local economy, geography, art and culture was truly impressive. And they both had great personalities, too! Instructions were clear on how to meet to get started. The pace was relalxed but we got a lot done! Restaurants chosen for meals while we were out and abut were charming and our meals were delicious. We also did a large group dinner in Paris, arranged by Decouvertes which went off without a hitch. Here is an agency you can count on for caring service and attention to detail.

Paris ground arrangements

Reviewed on: 18 Sep 2017

This group provided us a well-qualified and responsive guide for several days of viewing the sites of Paris. They were well-organized and responsive. The guide (Elvira Mendes-Gregoire) was especially good. She understood that we did not want to spend a great deal of time in museums but rather wanted to see neighborhoods and have a sense of the City over a limited amount of time. Based on her guidance we were able to ride the Metro and get around ourselves on the several days we did not have a guide. It was a very enjoyable introduction to Paris for both of us.

We loved the tours they scheduled for us and our guide, Denise. We were treated like VIP's every step of the way and experienced things that most tourists do not see. Denise knows all the guides at the local attractions and gets us right into places that others cannot go. She is very knowledgeable and interesting. We would recommend and use this Tour Operator again any time. Our driver was great too.
