Our guide Alessandra was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We were able to get into the principal museums quickly. The car was a Mercedes van in good condition, with a flexible and helpful driver.
Negatives were the lunch, which was very low quality considering how much our full day tour cost; and the limited length of time the vehicle was available, again considering how much the tour cost.
Chose this evening tour because I thought the museum would be quieter but it was still quite busy. The guide was pleasant but tended to gloss over explanations with an all purpose "it's technical, why this is considered a masterpiece, can't explain it on such a short tour". It was however a convenient way to get into the Louvre and see some high points in a time efficient way.
Too centerec on the Eiffel Tower and Invalides, which are near their office. Guide had much to say about Napoleon but much less about Eiffel. Due to lengthy commentaries on the nearby attractions, the tour didn't reach Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter, or the Grands Boulevards. Would have preferred a tour without commentary that covered more territory - this is after all what Segways are for.
