    She was a terrific story...
    Floyd_E, Oct 2021
    She was a terrific story teller connecting historical accounts with the personalities that shaped the importance of each piece.

    Hello and thank you so much for taking the time to write us a great review!

    Tour for schoolchildren, not adults
    Marilyn_C, Jun 2021
    Very disappointed that guide showed so few pieces from the museum(about 7)of such a large collection. Extremely simplistic and elementary- we were expecting more. Would not recommend
    Response from Host, Aug 2021
    Hi Marilyn! Thanks for taking the time to leave us this feedback. We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the experience. It is quite difficult to cover the entire collection of the Louvre or even a small piece of it in an hour introductory class. We do have a detailed tour we'd love to offer you. If there's anything we can do to make this up to you, please reach out to us!
    Very good experience
    Marta_S, Apr 2021
    Many informations about the museum and curiousities about the most famous pictures and painters thanks to the guide.
    anne_o, Apr 2021
    Not great the website was most confusing. Too many steps, I mixed up the time (thought I was booking for 11 am rather than 4 pm), asked to move the booking a week but have heard nothing so I guess that is €10 down the drain. Also I thought I was booking a general Louvre tour but found out on the day it was all about Napoleon. A most frustrating day and disappointing experience
    The background details...
    Jennie_S, Mar 2021
    The background details that our guide, Abbey, shared with us. It made it memorable and she also was happy to engage us in conversation through the chat facility
    Quite a good tour.
    Linda_W, Feb 2021
    Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, articulate and had personality. This was the best virtual tour I have taken during COVID.
    Response from Host, Mar 2021
    Hi Linda! Thanks so much for joining us for the tour of the Louvre! We're thrilled to hear this was the best one you've done and I know Abbie will appreciate hearing that. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and we hope to see you on another one soon. Cheers!
    Virtual Louvre Tour

    Abbie McLeans personality made the tour so enjoyable. Her view of Napoleons gifts to himself was a favorite. Her knowledge and choice of art pieces reflects her love of the subject. We plan on registering for the virtual Louvre sculpture tour and hopes she develops a Louvre series. We plan on a Louvre visit in 4/2022 and would love to have her as our our personal guide .
    Response from Host, Mar 2021
    Hi Vader! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review for Abbie! We're so glad you enjoyed it and glad you booked for the Sculpture tour as well. We hope to expand the offerings and hopefully see you on more tours soon.
    Very enjoyable and educational
    David_R, Feb 2021
    Abbie was very entertaining and thoroughly knew her stuff - she smashed all of the questions she was asked
    Great tour
    Wopke_P, Feb 2021
    Quite enjoyable, presented by a host that obviously knew very much about the subject, and was eager to share her knowledge with us. Recommended!
    Fantastic tour!
    Earl_C, Feb 2021
    Fantastic!! Far too short. Very well presented. Super energy. Fact filled but with interesting historical and art-savvy perspective. The three of us are going to try to attend Abbie’s Louvre statues tour as well.
    A wonderful taste of the Louvre!
    Cece_C, Feb 2021
    Abbie is a terrific tour guide. I really appreciated that she gave a broad overview of the Louvre itself and then focused on just a handful of works and spent time talking about each of these in more detail. She also did a good job of answering people’s questions they’d put in the chat box. And, she continued to answer and discuss until there were no more questions. While some things about in-person tours can never be replaced with technology, there are sometimes technological aspects that are better than in-person — allowing questions via a chat box is one of those better features. That way, the questions don’t interrupt the flow of the guide’s presentation, and the guide can focus at the end on only those questions that remain unanswered.
    Response from Host, Feb 2021
    Hi Cece! Thanks so much for leaving such a comprehensive review! We're glad to hear you enjoyed the tour. Abbie truly is an amazing guide and we're lucky to have her! We agree it's hard to replace in-person tours but glad you like the setup of the virtual tours and we're happy to be bringing these places to people around the world.
    Jennifer_S, Jan 2021
    Excellent commentary. Guide was personable, knowledgable and had interesting information to share. Looking that much more forward to seeing it all in person one day.
    Response from Host, Feb 2021
    Ciao Jennifer! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re so happy to hear that you enjoyed the virtual tour and our amazing guide! We hope to see you again on one soon or maybe someday on one of our in-person tours in Europe!
    Excellent tour!
    Kathleen_F, Jan 2021
    Finally getting inside the Louvre after many trips to Paris! Abbie is an excellent guide - love her knowledge and expertise.
    Response from Host, Feb 2021
    Hi Kathleen! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour with Abbie! We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review. If there's anything we can do to make this a 5-star tour, please let us know! We hope to see you on more tours soon! Cheers!
    Napoleans Treasures at the Louvre
    Kate_M, Jan 2021
    Loved the stories about the Greek statues, the discussion about the details of Veronese's Wedding at Cana, DaVinci's John the Baptist & the Mona Lisa. Very informative, lots of interesting details and Abbie is good at answering questions.
    Response from Host, Feb 2021
    Hi Paul! We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and the stories from Abbie! We look forward to welcoming you on more virtual tours, and maybe someday, in-person tours!
    Guide is great - someone at Tour Guy help with admin!
    Paige_E, Dec 2020
    The guide was knowledgeable and passionate about her subjects. We very much enjoyed her. We were perplexed at the significant delay in communicating the link to the tour. Viator operators tried to be helpful but could not find a link, nor get anyone at The Tour Guy to answer the phone - for more than 24 hours. We finally received a response and a link 20 minutes before the tour began.
    Excellent Virtual Tour
    Tangi_C, Aug 2020
    I LOVED it. Our tour guide Amy was awesome! She knows her stuff. This was the next best thing to going there since I can’t be there in person.
    Response from Host, Aug 2020
    Hello THC, Thank you for leaving your 5 star review! We look forward to seeing you in Paris next year.
    Cristina_L, Aug 2020
    I enjoyed it a lot. It was my first virtual guided tour and I loved it! It was entertaining and fun. Thanks Abbie!
    Response from Host, Aug 2020
    Hello Cristina, Thank you for taking the time to leave your 5 star review. We look forward to having you visit next year in Paris and take an in person tour with us. Thanks again!
    Great tour!

    Hi Abbie was an amazing tour guide. However, we had some issues with sound and missed the first ten minutes of the tour.

    Showing the exhibit of the old fortress foundation. That is new since my last trip to the museum.
    Dee_P, Jun 2020
    Abbie McLean was a good tour leader and she found information about some of The Louvre most famous treasures that I had never heard. My one complaint was the Q & A. It was great that she asked us questions but the lag time while the participants weighed in was long and took away the time we could have been learning something. I also signed off early because of technical trouble. My next negative is I don't think you should be posting the participants full name and where they live. It is unnecessary.
    Response from Host, Jul 2020

    Louvre history and art brought to life
    Marcia_B, Jun 2020
    Abby was very knowledgable about the history of the buildings as well the the sculptures and paintings we saw. It was just a small taste of the 38,000 objects on display, but gave us a good feel for what an in person visit would be like. She reminded us what to look out for when we can visit in person. I hope to be able to do that someday.
    Response from Host, Jun 2020
    Bonjour Marcia! Thank you for the great review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your virtual visit to the Louvre and look forward to having you on a tour in Paris someday! Thank you again!
