Amazing museum and Tour guide was excellent. We are so glad we took this tour. Our guide started off taking us through the original palace which was off the beaten path. What a great experience. We travel through the museum hitting key highlights. seriously you could spend days but for us the 3 plus hours was manageable and comfortable. I can not say enough positive things about our tour guide Fabi. She was a pleasure to be with and shared so much insight regarding the various pieces of art we saw. I highly recommend the small group tour and will recommend this for my daughter who will be visiting Paris later this year.

Can one go wrong with Louvre, No, but have loads and loads of time. Soak the history. Just a work of caution, Monalisa, well be prepared for a big let down I am afraid. Be wary of stick toting selfie brigade of tourists.

Definitely recommend! Skipping the line is worth it because you don't waste precious time. We had a great guide, Lily Ya. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the tour, and guided us well through the crowds at the museum. You see major works of art sculpture and paintings, and then have time to explore on your own after the tour.

This was the perfect introduction to The Louvre. Had it not been for the amazing tour guide, we would have rushed right past some highlights including the foundation of the fortress which tells an important historical tale, and we would have missed crucial things such as the earlier da Vinci portraits that provided context for the Mona Lisa. Although our Paris Pass provided multiple days of access to the Louvre, we did this separately booked guided tour first to get our bearings and learn our way around the complex. It was definitely worth the time and small additional expense. When we returned to the Louvre a couple of days later we were able to gain immediate entrance by using one of the lesser known entrances that avoided the long line of tourists waiting to purchase tickets. If This is your first visit to the Louvre or if you want to have some additional insight into art history, this tour is a must do.

Lee did a great job as a tour guide. His knowledge was presented in a very clear and enjoyable fashion. Highly recommend.

So happy we chose the Friday evening tour and our guide Lillyah was incredible ! Her knowledge and passion for history was so inspiring - we were lucky enough to have her for our Guide - 5 Stars . We heard the Louvre was hard to navigate plus we wanted to appreciate what we were looking at, so to be able to follow our guide around and really enjoy the experience was excellent. As the museum was close to closing time we saw the Mona Lisa with no crowds and were able to take photos right in front. Lillyah didnt rush us either so we really appreciated that. Definitely recommend this Evening Tour !

We got a very knowledgable and fun/passionate-about-arts guide. He didn't rush the tour at all and although the group was somewhat big, took care of everyone.
