Our guide, Suzanne, was GREAT!! It was a fantastic overview of all the highlights of the Louvre. Suzanne was a great historian about not only the art, but the period and the facility. Perfect amount of time spent on the highlights. Don't think I could have negotiated such a large space as efficiently as on this tour.

Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Don't hesitate to book. The group was small and we saw all the important highlights. Louvre can be overwhelming due to its size and crowds. We had a very stress-free and enjoyable experience.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

We had a very knowlegable guide who showed us all the important parts of the Louvre. There were thousands of people on the day but somehow we managed to get a good view of everything and got some great photos


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Excellent. With a maximum of six people on the tour, we had almost an individual tour experience with our highly informative guide, Joanna. We were able to skip the very long queue to enter the Louvre and Joanna took us to all the major exhibits we were keen to see. The three hours went by in a flash as she was so interesting and knew so many fascinating little snippets about many of the sculptures and paintings. I'd definitely recommend this tour to anyone going to the Louvre.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

We had a wonderful time at the Louvre. Joanna, our guide was fantastic. She was able to capture our boys attention ages 11 and 14 for the full three hours of the tour. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about the Louvre and its art collection as well a very personable person. Our tour was in the evening and as a result we were able to avoid the very large crowds. I would recommend the evening tour and if you get lucky you will have Joanna as a guide.

We were able to see the highlights and our guides was great. She was so knowledgeable and could answer our questions. We learned so much from her. The evening was the way to go because it was as crowded as during the day there were many tours there besides ours.
