Exploring the museums of Paris alone can be a daunting experience, but our expert art history guides are on hand to make your visit a breeze – to introduce you to some of the most highly acclaimed works of art in the world, to take you deep into their history, but also to take you away from the tourist track. Our museums tours are lead solely by accredited guides with an abundance of knowledge, who give you the chance to explore some of the most breathtaking exhibitions in the world with a private, personable and approachable guide.
Sure you know the name Pablo Picasso, and sure you’ve heard he was a great artist. But we think it's time to go deeper into his story with this intimate private tour. Why not see his extraordinary work with your own eyes, in the very city where he spent most of his life, and get to the heart of this artistic genius everyone always raves about?
Of course we'll equip you with a certified passionate guide to help you unlock the secrets of each masterpiece in front of you: from the early works like Death of Casagemas, to the exciting beginnings of Cubism in Montmartre, to poignant portraits like La Célestine. We guarantee you’ll be blown away with just how many styles this guy mastered in one lifetime.
Your private tour will begin with the famously disfigured faces of the ladies in Picasso's life, before discussing how the two World Wars impacted the artist’s style and the handling of his subjects, and on a lighter note, about Picasso's bohemian life in Paris. You’ll then head upstairs to see Picasso's works dedicated to bull fighting, and come face to face with one of his most powerful masterpieces, Massacre in Korea. Finally, you'll visit the museum's top floor, where Picasso's personal art collection is on display and offers originals by Matisse, Renoir, Cezanne and more.
