OMG, we were very impressed with this tour. I was not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. Definitely worth going and make sure you have extra time to spend.

My husband and I enjoyed our tour. The guide was knowledgeable and very helpful. I can not think of anything that would have pleased us more. The Louvre is AMAZING, GORGEOUS, OUTSTANDING and the guide was fantastic. I can not recommend this tour more highly. We saw everything we expected and more. I can not rave about the tour guide enough. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject was infectious. If I could I would give this 10 stars. Thank you for a wonderful experience that neither of us will ever forget.

Best way to enter the museum. Bypasses the long lines outside. You can then stay with your guide or go off on your own. It is your choice. Our guide was not the most knowledgeable or easiest to hear at times. The process of seeing the Mona Lisa is ridiculous. It is just a mob scene with people pushing forward and back. They should have ropes and lines to get people through in a more orderly fashion. Great exhibits.
