Wonderful Louvre Tour
, Jun 2021
Super tour!! A wonderful first trip to the Louvre with Belen, who is an amazing guide. She was highly knowledgeable, enthusiastic and made sure we would leave wanting to see and learn more…the perfect balance of history, art and architecture information! And the perfect tour!! I am not a tourist, have been living in Paris for nearly 4 years and wholeheartedly recommend this tour. Thank you Belen!!

Perfect high-speed tour of the Louvre
, Mar 2020
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.

Ask for Felix! He's the best
, Feb 2020
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. Pro tips: 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!
Awesome tour

Alex was amazingly wonderful in his delivery of knowledge as well as his skill in picking the perfect pieces for us. We learned a lot. It was my best tour ever.

Tina was awesome! She made the entire tour so interesting. Even my 14 year old was engaged the entire time.
Art brought to life.

Romain was awesome! Such a passionate and knowledgeable guide for an amazing place. With so much to see, we captured a beautiful picture and story.
Delightful and knowledgeable

Elena was delightful and knowledgeable. The tour really enhanced our visit by highlighting and providing interesting insights into paintings, sculpture and architecture throughout the museum.
Highly recommend this tour for a memorable, though-provoking Louvre experience
, Jan 2020
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.
Great Time

Our tour guide, Elena, did a wonderful job. She was very knowledgeable about the exhibits and quite friendly the entire time as we experienced the Louvre.
