This was an incredible tour, and without a doubt exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Belen, was exceptional. She was of course very personable, polite, and thoughtful: she told us numerous times that we should tell her if she needs to speed up or slow down, to ask questions, etc. The amazing thing about her was how engaging she made the overall experience. She was clearly very passionate about the history of the city, and very very knowledgeable in topics ranging from history to architecture to art, religion and even Egyptology. Belen translated this passion into an engaging conversation with us, which made the whole tour feel like a true learning experience as opposed to simply memorize these dates and names because this is important per academia or popular for various reasons.The fact that she was quite funny also helped convey many of her points and material.
This was a dense tour with lots of information, quite a bit of walking around Paris but not overwhelming, and inside the Louvre. Belen asked us about whether we wished to opt for a slower or more intense/fast pace to cover more ground. She suggested a few places to grab lunch, and offered some good advice about art galleries which we were after. We would highly encourage anyone to take this tour for an immersive and invaluable orientation, not only for first-time Paris visitors.
Perfect tour, thank you Heidi! Can't say enough good things about this tour and our guide. So glad we chose to do this, it's the perfect way to learn a little more about the city and absolutely the best way to see the Louvre. I visited the Louvre once before, many years ago and was completely overwhelmed. Heidi gave us the perfect introduction and made sure we saw all the highlights.

Outstanding! Highly informed and energetic guide
Our experience was entirely dependent upon Harriet, our guide, who was incredibly knowledgeable, passionate about French history and art and coud not have been more charming and personable. There wasn't a question I asked that she couldn't answer and the color and context she gave to every point of interest and certainly, our tour through the Louvre, absolutely made the tour for me and my 17 year old as well. She was a gift on our trip - and I would highly recommend requesting her if that's possible. This is a great first day walking tour to take - to acquaint yourself with the history and points in time as you begin your stay in Paris.
This tour was a complete delight it really felt like a good friend showing me his home town. Alex, my guide, was very knowledgeable, and personalized the tour to my interests. If you love to walk then I highly recommend this way of exploring Paris. It began with Notre Dame and ended with the Louvre. Alex left me with plenty of options to continue to discover the delights of Paris.
Our guide patiently waited for us in front of the train station. Good thing this was a private tour so we were the only ones she's waiting on. Our guide knows quite a bit of facts and place of interests. She was also helping us with our baby stroller. She was patient and didn't mind going over time. Weather permitting, this tour is great for all ages. You get to put things in perspective.
The tour was amazing and our tour guide was outstanding! Chris was so knowledgeable about Paris and it's history and his passion for the city was infectious. He also made the tour of the Louve exceptional. I would highly recommend this tour and ask for Chris!!
Randa was an amazing tour guide. She was very knowledgeable not only about the sites we were seeing, but the museums and all of Paris. We got lucky and were her only clients that day, so had a private tour which allowed us to ask a lot of questions. When we finished she also had great recommends for the rest of our stay in Paris. Wonderful!!!
Our personal guide was funny and very knowledgeable. It was great to be able to tailor the tour to our liking and to not have to fight for position in a group to ask questions and hear the answers.
This was the highlight of our trip to Paris. For anyone visiting Paris for the first time this trip is essential.
Our tour guide Harryette was very knowledgeable, pleasant, interesting tour guide that we ever met before.We would definitely recommend her.
Berdine our guide was well educated. Her knowledge on her subject matter was extraordinaire. Would recommend her to everyone.
Our Tour Guides were Lilia and Dario. They were both excellent.
Could not have wanted more from our tours.

I would toward guide Chris was phenomenal. He was extremely knowledgeable. One of the best experiences I had on this trip.
this the best part, our guide Hari..was on time and knowledgeable. skip the line is the way to go with the added expense, The paper said to meet in the Place Louie NOT out in front so we stood in line to go into the police station for a look around.
Excellent. Alexander lead our tour masterfully. All four of us, aged 12-47, loved the tour.
Randa was a fun, extremely knowledgable tour guide in Paris. The tour was only 3 hours but we packed a fair bit in. There's so much to see in Paris but this gives you a fairly Good base and the tour of the Louvre is really good also. Thanks !
This was a special trip to Paris as it was my daughter's 21st birthday and her first visit to Paris. Alex our guide could not have been more interesting, congenial, professional. He is a great story teller and showed us many hidden secrets in Paris!! The Louvre can be overwhelming and if you do not have as much time as you need to do it justice, please have Alex take you through it. He showed us many pieces, aspects and areas that most tourists don't see or even know about. He certainly captured the imagination and attention of two 21 year olds who didn't look at their iPhones for several hours!! Thank you, Alex!!!
fantastic trip. Phillipa as our guide. Morning spent walking old city tailored to our interests with great stories linking places. Picnic lunch where we could chat with Phillipa about all sorts of issues and then 2 hour personal tour of Louvre. as first time visitors to Louvre only way to go as get a feeling for the place, get to see highlights but also start to understand the "why" of the place. Great value and highly recommended.
This was a great tour-- we really enjoyed Alex as a tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and really put the history of the city into context for us. His knowledge of art history was also great since the tour ended in the Louvre. Fantastic tour-- highly recommended!
We walked along the waterways, streets, Notre Dame and our guide Arnaud's stories helped us to truly grasp what we were looking at or why it was created. While we enjoyed lunch we talked about our families and experiences. The many steps we took throughout Paris were filled with historical facts and stories that came to life. My wife and I are novice when it comes to art appreciation but Arnaud was able to preface most sites and collections with a story that held our attention while touring the Louvre. Arnaud made this an enjoyable and memorable experience.
