Perfect high-speed tour of the Louvre

Lili was on time, attentive to the groups needs (including getting and keeping the attention of a 7 year old in the group) and very knowledgeable. She adjusted the tour to our group’s needs and interests and I would gladly recommend her to anyone taking the Louvre tour.
I'm a firm believer in that you get what you pay for!
I didn't even realize we skipped the line (is there even one?) because of how seamless the entire process was.
Felix was tres magnifique! You can tell how much he loves his job and how passionate and educated he is about it! Please ask for him. Everyone in our group loved him. He even took a slight detour when I was fawning over a painting to explain its origin and intricacies.
Get there on time! It's not your tour guide's responsibility to wait for you and hold up precious time that eats into other tourists' punctuality.
Tip your guides generously! They often have back to back tours and it is a very exhausting job standing on your feet all day guiding bright eyed and bushy tailed tourists through crowds and winding corridors!
Highly recommend this tour for a memorable, though-provoking Louvre experience

We booked a skip-the-line private Louvre tour for our family, including one 6 year old. None of us had ever been to the Louvre, largely owing to its overwhelming size. I highly recommend booking this tour particularly for those who are not familiar with the museum, are short on time, appreciate convenience and/or want to have a meaningful experience within a relatively short period of time.
We were pleased with every aspect of our tour - from the initial booking, meeting our guide Alex, entering the museum and exploring its vast riches. The booking was easy, and we received confirmation with instructions following the booking. As promised, we then received another email the night before with the name of our guide and his contact information.
We easily found our guide, Alex, who took us through a less crowded entrance quickly. For the next 2.5 hours, without a map, Alex led us through the highlights, holding our undivided attention and giving us a wonderful art history tour that we are still talking about - even our 6 year old daughter. He also managed to keep her engaged throughout the tour.
If you are considering a tour, you will not go wrong with this one or with Alex if he is your guide.
Taylor gave us a private tour of the museum, she is very knowledgeable about how to navigate the museum ( I was in a wheelchair and not all the elevators where working) as well as the information about the paintings, sculptures, etc. She did manage to skip the lines at the museum entrance as well as the line to view the Mona Lisa and made sure that I was able to see everything from my wheelchair. She was the best tour guide we had in Paris.
