Ivan was terrific in guiding our group to the Louvre's highlights. On top of that she gave a quick history lesson when needed. Fascinating and Ivana our guide was tremendous in relaying the importance of certain artifacts to our group.

It's something when you realize your 2.5-3 hour tour is over and you are surprised. Violet was very knowledgeable, professional, personal and funny. She was obviously skilled in guiding with an amazing knowledge of art works as the history behind the scenes. Great tour!

Group tour of the Louvre: great venue, skip the line was efficient, Guide was not so great. I had taken the same tour in May and the guide covered way more with far better commentary. Extremely disappointing.

Our guide was delightful and very accommodating. Sadly since there is so much on display at the lourve we only saw a fraction of what it has to show.

We had Ivana as a fuide who is doing her PhD. She was an excellent guide and provided a lot of details regarding art pieces she was showing us. Very efficient! A great way to skip the long line up as well! A fabulous way to see the Louvre without being overwhelmed. Do not expect to get near the Moba Lisa

Anastasia was our guide for the Lourve. She was difficult to understand and repeated herself throughout the tour. She was very knowledgeable and did guide us to the most important works in the Lourve.
