The local agency is next to the museum entrance. Waiting room with seats before departure. Luis our French speaking guide was excellent. Expert in painting, he was able to make a choice in each piece of the masterpiece and explain it to us, highlighting the evolution of painting over the centuries. He tried to interest children as well. We highly recommend this guide and this service.

Could not understand our guide

Our guide was nice but her English was so limited that she couldn’t tell us anything but trivial comments and just kept repeating herself. And we could barely understand what she was saying. Our entire family just gave up and took the headphones off. Other’s in our group did the same.
