My adult son and I were fortunate to have Carolina as our tour guide. She has had years of experience and knows the Louvre and Art very very well. She was friendly and extremely informative, sharing details about the artwork and the history of pieces and the Louvre itself. We enjoyed her thoughtful teaching style - she would mention things we should notice and then question us on our observations and we would discuss them. My son and I both felt we learned a great deal from her in an intelligent, enjoyable way. When the tour was over and Carolina bid us adieux, we suddenly realized we wanted to tip her. I went after her but could not determine which of the many possible directions she went, and never found her. I am sorry about that - she is a fantastic guide. The Louvre is huge and I cannot imagine going without a guide on a first visit - it would be so difficult to find things and the museum is several levels, around 8 miles long end to end. Someday I hope to go back and have full days to spend there and study the paintings. There are so many huge and gorgeously detailed paintings, furniture, statues - an amazing gift to the world. This should not be missed on a Paris visit.

I was with my two teens and one of their friends and this was a great introduction to the Louvre. Our guide Florence was knowledgeable and interesting and great with kids. I booked this to be a small group as they said 12 max and we were us four plus a couple so 6 in total was a great group. Recommend it highly.

Had such hopes for the advertised tour . What we received: A guide that took 40 min to get group “organized”, many headsets didn’t work, guide used his microphone for conversations and so we heard his 1-way exchange. Didn’t see much art. Waited thru long lines. Not express at all. Guide was BORING and didn’t take advantage of educating us. I learned more from listening to my sister explain the artwork. Waste of money and not as advertised.

We highly recommend this tour. Small group, skip line, lots of individual attention, with a guide who is passionate about his job. He paid extra special attention to our 9 year old grandson and told stories surrounding the exhibits highlighted in the tour. His stories were so fascinating to our boy that he remembered the names of paintings and statues and has been talking about them for 2 days to his younger brother (who we wisely left in the apartment with his mother and the 8 month old baby). Superb guide and wonderful tour. Marisa

Great way to see the highlights of the Louvre!

My daughter and I were on a highschool graduation trip in Paris----she is an artist, art history buff and LOVES all things art! She really wanted to spend a full day or two in the Louvre taking in as much as she could during our stay in this wonderful city. I had been on another trip to Paris and had been in the Louvre once before...it can be overwhelming even if you LOVE ART! Especially in the summer...the crowds are big and in order to see all the highlights in a fast efficient way, this is the best way to do it. Then you can stay in the museum and go back to see everything again at your own pace and/or explore other areas you didn't see on the tour! The tour guide was helpful, informative, spoke great English and navigated us through to see all the highlights, including the Mona Lisa, in 1.5 hours! Highly recommend this even for the most seasoned art lover!

Not Good, Poor Value

I'll preface by saying our tour guide himself was excellent, really knowledgeable and friendly. None of my complaints are his fault. However, when you hear "skip the line" you'd assume you don't wait in any lines, not the case. You get to skip the security line, which was a short line to begin with, maybe we cut in front of ten people. Once you're past security there is a line to get into the actual museum, which we did not skip, and was apr. 20 minutes of waiting, not a huge deal, except for that we went straight to Mona Lisa, which was another 20-25 min. wait, so we've started at 3:30pm (Louvre closes at 5:30pm), it's 4:26pm (time-stamp on my pictures) by the time we get to Mona Lisa, and now we rush through (practically running, literally stopped to take pictures and almost lost the group) all the other pieces to try to get to them by the time the tour is over. I think we saw three other "Masterpieces". Once the tour is over... the Louvre closes, so no time to go back and look at anything else in the museum, very disappointing for the price we paid, I would not suggest this tour and if you decide to do it, do not do the afternoon time slot. Also, the headsets were cutting out horribly, very hard to understand the guide, ended up taking out the ear bud and standing close enough to hear him.

So great not to have to wait in line... However last minute changes to location of Mona Lisa at Louvre caused a bit of a rushed experience. Overall tour was excellent.
