Great guide! I was the only one on my tour and the museum was not busy at all - glad I went in the winter!
Took the 6 passenger tour and we were the only two on it! No worries about waiting in line to get inand tour guide couldn't have been better. Went there on Metro which is fantastic - so easy to use - very foreign tourist user friendly. Word of warning and this is real important - there are two Metro exits to the Louvre get off on the Louvre Rivoli exit which is right by the Tourist Office where you meet the guide. The office is at one end east end, I believe and real hard to find if you get off at the other Louvre Metro exit. Wish I knew that before I went as we got off on the other exit. Don't miss the Louvre!
Quality, experienced guide able to skilfully blend humour with informative detail
GREAT guide! Well worth the 's. Even if you have visited the Louvre before, this type of tour is so interesting because you get an entirely different perspective and pick up a ton of information.
Well worth it! The guide we had was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the louvre and her enthusiasm certainly rubbed off on all the group making it an enjoyable tour. Personally if you are doing the louvre and not an art expert this is the best way to do it as the guide tells you all about each area of the louvre and points out significant paintings as you go along.
I am so glad we decided on this tour. Without the luxury of having days to spend discovering the many masterpieces of the Louvre, we opted to get our bearings and an overview in this two hour tour. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and entertaining as he shared his passion for art and love of the Louvre with our small group of 5. Even if you have visited the Louvre previously we hadn't I'm very sure you will come away with more than you expect. Yes, we saw the Mona Lisa, but we will remember so much more of the experience because of having been on this tour. We did the 9:00 am tour which gave us about an hour before the crowds arrived and allowed plenty of time after the tour to continue. They tell us that it would take nine months of daily visits to really see all of the exhibits on display at any one time, so I think we'll need to come back again! I highly recommend this tour.
We were lucky to be the only 2 in our group guide so it was essentially a private tour for us. The tour was great however, you definitely need more time at the L'Ouvre as there is so much to see and take in. We did the 4pm tour, which was perfect as it was not busy as busy as it normally is in there.

Our tour guide was fabulous as was the art we saw!
Finally got a one on one picture with the Mona Lisa, my advise then is to visit the museum towards the end of the day when the crowd is almost gone. Our tour guide Pauline was funny and very French in her manner and totally entertained by her.
Our tour guide was friendly, had humor and a lot of knowledge. Louvre is big so this was an excellent choice to see the most important pieces. A must do!
Everything went as planned ! Our guide was knowledgable and funny !!! Just do it :
What a fantastic place! We had a wonderful tour of the Louvre with our exceptional guide, Audrey, who was extremely knowledge and very pleasant. Our experience was complimented with the skip the queue option. We would highly recommend and hope to return in the future. The 'Mona Lisa' is worth it!
Be prepared...this place is packed. I only recommend you visit here with a guide. Our guide was super energetic and did a great job. Don't forget to turn 180 degrees when you look at the Mona Lisa and see the largest painting in the Louvre!
Our tour guide was very welcoming and full of knowledge! It was totally worth the price to do the tour, we were able to hit all the important things within the 2 hours and then had time ourselves at the end to explore. Highly Recommend!!
This was a wonderful tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable.
This was an excellent tour...the group was 6 including the 4 of us which was perfect. Caroline Lagarde is an excellent guide and if you can try to contact France Toursime who run the tour to try and request her...especially if you have kids ours are 10 and 9. She was able to bring the Louvre alive with her descriptions and managed to fascinate my children leaving them wanting more. HIGHLY RECOMMEND her and it was pity that she was booked for the entire time were in Paris else we would have definitely tried to do another tour of the Louvre and Musee D'Orsay with her.
It's the Louvre ! Tour guide gave a great insider look at the world's most famous museum.
Im not going to review the Louvre, since we all know how fantastic it is. Ill just review this small-group skip-the-line tour with France Tourisme via Viator.
Im not really an art person, so I wanted to see the Louvre with an expert who could give me some insights into what I was looking at. I also researched and found out that its good to go at night to minimise crowds. I found this tour, and was not disappointed.
Five unrelated people met our guide Leonard at the France Tourisme office behind the Louvre. He is a unique and very interesting young man whose knowledge of and enthusiasm for the delights of the Parisian art world were very infectious. He showed us through a number of sections of the museum, making sure that we hit the highlights of each. I really appreciated his expert commentary because he placed the curiosities into their historical contexts. He was quite coy at what we were forbidden to look at during the end of the tour, and when he allowed us to turn around, the surprise was all the more delightful.
I thoroughly enjoyed this evening with Leonard and recommend it to anyone who, like me, wants to see the Louvre quickly but with a local expert.
It was perfect for us. It hit all the highlights and we finished just in time for lunch and a nice break in the afternoon.
Wonderful female tour guide for a small group of us. There were a total of five folks and the tour guide. so glad we took this tour as the Louvre Museum is so large one could easily get lost.
Our guide whose name I cannot spell Anauld? Anu? was simpy the best --witty, informative, enthusiastic. One of the best guides I've ever had. There were only 3 people on the tour so we were able to interact a lot. I recommend this highly!
If you are a lover of history you will thoroughly enjoy this tour. So much phenomenal art and so much history. You will feel like the paintings come to life in this museum. The tour guide was overflowing with information to share and it makes the experience even better. I will do this again when I visit.
