We enjoyed the Orsay, however our guide was a bit more challenged than I expected with his English, which made it difficult to understand everything he had to say about the artwork. He was very cordial and showed us all that was promised in the museum.

Paris 2-Hour Small Group Tour of Pere Lachaise Cemetery | Aug 2019
English speaking? I don’t think so. Really difficult to understand. Nice guy but not dynamic —a lot of quiet space where we could have been given lots of info. Of the six walking tours we took in our three country tour this was our only disappointment. Sorry.

We could have not expected anything more from Susan, our guide. She was very pleasant, knowledgeable and fun to be around. Wish we would have met her earlier and had her for our whole time in Paris!!

Louvre Museum Small-Group Tour | Aug 2018

Our guide knew the best way to manage our way through the Louvre. You could get lost trying to find your must see highlights, especially if you have a limited amount of time. There is so much to see in the Louvre. I could spend days in there but we didnt have the time so this is a really good way to see your top 5 highlights! Did I mention that we did the night tour with one other couple. The evening light gave off a glow in the Louvre.

Louvre Museum Small-Group Tour | Jul 2018

We had the incredible fortune that our guide Susan was an art major at university and she was VERY knowledgeable--gave the tour a whole new feeling which we very much appreciated. The only reason why it didn't get 5 stars was that the Louvre was VERY crowded! Susan was telling us that the day we went Sat at 9AM it was considered not crowded yet it dwarfed anything I'd seen at NYC museums. And they should have a special way to view the Mona Lisa. Elbowing and fighting your way to the front and then being pressured is not the ideal way to take in and appreciate a master piece. Otherwise Susan was fantastic!

Private Tour of Louvre

Louvre Museum Small-Group Tour | Jun 2018
If you're not a Louvre expert this is the way to go. We did this on a Friday night so the Louvre was open until 9:45pm and the crowds were manageable. Our guide, Alex, was knowledgeable, punctual and tailored the time in the museum to our interests. Although our tour was technically a 6-person small group tour it wound up just the three in our group. BTW, I've found that often you can book as a part of a small group and wind up with a private tour for a fraction of the cost. IMO, this is the best way to see the major exhibits in the Louvre. The place is huge and we would have wandered around for hours without Alex.

We enjoyed the tour. Unfortunately, the guide was ill fighting a cold which sometimes made him difficult to understand. Despite that he had some very valuable insights and a pleasant overview of some major works. We hadn't been to the Louvre in over 40 years and felt the tour was valuable.

Rapheal was amazing. It was just her taking our small group around and her knowledge of every piece seriously _every_ piece in the museum was astonishing. She even took extra time to show us something we asked about. A real treat and highly recommended!

Louvre Museum Small-Group Tour | Jan 2018

Brilliant tour guide who taught us a lot about art and art history. Doing the tour at night was great because the crowds were much smaller, so we got to see everything well. The lines were long, so it was also great to skip the line with our guide. There were only 6 on our tour, so we had plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Overall, a great experience.

Louvre Museum Small-Group Tour | Dec 2017

This was THE best tour we've ever been on and Susan was absolutely fantastic. She showed us all of the major things to see and as we are not super big art people but she pointed out all of the cool stuff in the paintings and sculptures that we would've otherwise missed. She also kept things very interesting! She also had some great stories to go with the pieces that she showed us. Her tour gave us a great overview of the Louvre, efficiently. I can see how people spend hours there and with only a day and a half in Paris, we didn't have that luxury plus there is just so much to see! With this tour, we felt that we were able to really see the Louvre. We went back and forth about doing a tour before we booked this and after doing this tour, I would absolutely recommend taking a tour. Otherwise, you could very easily wander for hours seeing things but not truly appreciating them.
