2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

This tour was rather ardous. While the guide did speak English, she was still difficult to understand. And like the tour of the Louvre, the guide did not seem prepared to speak to children in her text. We attempted to have our children ask questions which would allow the guide to speak to their interests in the Chateau's residents and their lifestyle, but she continually focused on the history and the dates during which the historical events occured. Facts do not engage the audience. Stories do.

The tour was well organized, the guide was interesting, and spoke to both adults and children with passion and a real flare for story telling. Well worth the money.

My Review

The arrangements were fine. The tour length was fine. The guide was neither interesting nor interested in our questions. She gave what appeared to be a "canned performance", and did not bother to speak to any of our children who were genuinely interested in some of the artworks. Our whole group felt it was a waste of time to be with that guide. What made matters worse was that we were not given our own tickets, and so in order for us to explore the museum on our own after the tour, we had to stay inside the museum and not exit to be able to enter other halls. If you know anything about the Louvre, getting from one hall to another is very tricky from within the museum itself. We spent 30 minutes trying to view the Rembrandt masterpieces - weaving our way through hallways and stairways - being told by many attendants that it was almost impossible to do this without exiting and re-entering. We were very disappointed at what we had hoped would be the tour of a lifetime in the greatest art museum in the world.
