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.
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.
We had a great tour. Our guide was friendly and very informative. She took us trough the main highlights like the Mona Lisa. We saw several things in 1.5 hours.
Victoria was an amazing guide! So knowledgable and you can tell has a genuine love for art and history. Tour was small (12 people) and 1.5 hrs which was perfect and more than enough time to see the big pieces of art. We enjoyed the tour and Victoria made it a great experience.
This is a good tour for someone with only a small amount of time who wants to see the main attractions. You don't have to find your way on your own. You do see only a small amount of what you can see but you don't waste time trying to figure out how to get to places. If you do have a greater amount of time this tour would be a good jumping off point as your guide will provide directions and suggestions for further things to see.
We have three teenage boys and this was the perfect amount of time at the Louvre. The guide did a great job of keeping them interested with stories about the painting.
so worth it. tour guide got us right up in front of all the great famous works of art. she was friendly and knowledgeable. I took my toddler and she was so patient with us. i would never do the louvre without a guide. this guided tour was a highlight of my paris trip
