As described, well worth while especially on busy days. Good information on Museum and art works. the Louvre is an amazing place for sure.

Outstanding! Our guide was not only very knowledgeable, but fun to listen to. She provided theories, and anecdotes for the amazing pieces we saw. We avoided very long lines and she knew where the "secret" bathrooms were along the way.

My reservation was for a 6:30 pm museum entrance. I arrived at the meeting location outside well before the scheduled time, and it was disorganized and a little chaotic. we didn't get into the museum until about 7 pm, but that was the only glitch. Once we got in the museum, the tour guide was excellent, and took us through the exhibitions with expert commentary and descriptions. As I expected, big crowd around Mona Lisa, but patience pays off here. Best part, since we started late, out guide led us through Napoleon's apartments, almost solo, giving us a few minutes alone in the exhibit...that was worth it. Saw many museum highlights, but didn't scratch the surface of this magnificent place. My suggestion, do a tour earlier in the day, then spend the evening exploring on your own until the museum closes at 9:30.

We really enjoyed this tour. It was a bit unorganized prior to going on the tour. We had to meet outside in the dark and the person that was checking people in had a list, which was hard to see in the dark. Overall, the tour was great and the tour guide was very good.

This would have been much better if it was a small group as advertised, rather than 22 trailing through dense crowds and frequently having no idea what the guide was talking about. Add to that intermittent headset function and a guide who should know if you have to keep saying “I’m only joking” you should stop making those ‘jokes’. However as far as we could tell he was knowledgeable.

I highly recommend this guided tour. They hit all the high points giving you more detail and making the museum that much better! The size of the museum can be intimidating to a tourist but this tour ensures you don’t miss anything and meets you outside to get you on the right track from the start
