Our tour guide Julien was amazing, worth every euro! The Louvre was mobbed the day we went and he used all of his tour guide magic to get us in past long lines even for tour groups. He knew everything about the Louvre that we asked about and gave us an incredible overview tour. It was supposed to be 1.5 hours but he went almost an hour more. You could tell he loved his job. We have 11 year old twin boys and he worked very hard to keep them interested. He even offered to take family pics of us in the museum. Thanks for everything, Julien!

Oh my God!!!!!!! If you can get Julian, oh my, what a guide. He changed our lives forever with a new perspective on art. It was an art
history lesson, the kind that inspires and we shall never forget his words bursting with enthusiasm and information that is enduring and endearing.

Wonderful tour! Started a bit late, but our guide went much longer than 1.5 hrs, we saw all the highlights, enjoyed it thoroughly!

Catherine was amazing on this private tour. Her personal touches and knowledge during this tour made it a perfect start to our Paris trip. Impressed with her approach on how to experience the Louvre. I recommend a private tour like this and asking for Catherine.

This tour is a MUST. We were only in Paris a few days and didn't want to take up a full day at the Louvre so we opted to do the abbreviated private tour. The Louvre is huge and I can imagine one could get lost for hours in there and not even see some of the major exhibits. Our guide was Julien and he was awesome. We had a delay because the museum opened late due to an impending strike in France so he walked us over to a local cafe for hot chocolate while he went back to the museum and checked the status of the opening. He came back after about 20 minutes and said everything was good to go. He whisked us around the museum to see the highlights and his knowledge of the fine details of paintings and the history was awesome. We were explained things we would have never known if we didn't have him there. While the tour was pretty expensive for just the two of us, it is much cheaper if you book with a tour of at least 6. The price goes down per individual if you have more. We had friends that took the same tour in September of last year and they loved their guide. She pushed her way through the crowds and helped them get prime spots for viewings and such.

We chose this tour because we were very limited on time in Paris and it was very important to my son to see certain things in the Louvre. Because of the immense size of the Louvre, we were afraid we'd waste too much time wandering around trying to find the top 10 things you need to see if you just have casual interest in the historical art pieces and statues. Even WITH a map it would have taken us much longer. Our guide - Jullian - who was amazing and extremely knowledgeable - met us exactly on time outside the entrance at precisely 5:00pm. By the time we got inside, through security etc. It was 5:30. That's when we were on the clock with him. I had looked up the top 10 exhibits and he hit every one of them Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Liberty Leading the People etc plus a few more. He navigated us through the museum quickly and without hesitation and gave us history on each piece. When we were through 2 hours later - so he spent more time then scheduled with us we still had about 2 hours before the museum closed to roam around on our own but knowing we had already seen all of the highlights. Ask for Jullian - he was amazing funny and was easy to understand

What an enjoyable tour. Skipping the lines and seeing the best of the best in a streamlined tour. Got the most of our short time in the Louvre.

Julien was the best. I couldn't ask for a better tour guide. He was so patient and kind. He told me about so much history about the Lourve and France. I am so grateful for his guidance.

Best thing we did in France! Julien Dartois was the best guide we had for the entire trip to London and France. I can not speak highly enough about him. He was knowledgeable, interesting and just great to be around. I wish we had engaged him on our first day in France, I definitely would have booked him for another day. I would highly recommend Julien Dartois, other guides should use him as an example.
