OMG, we were very impressed with this tour. I was not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. Definitely worth going and make sure you have extra time to spend.

My husband and I enjoyed our tour. The guide was knowledgeable and very helpful. I can not think of anything that would have pleased us more. The Louvre is AMAZING, GORGEOUS, OUTSTANDING and the guide was fantastic. I can not recommend this tour more highly. We saw everything we expected and more. I can not rave about the tour guide enough. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject was infectious. If I could I would give this 10 stars. Thank you for a wonderful experience that neither of us will ever forget.

Best way to enter the museum. Bypasses the long lines outside. You can then stay with your guide or go off on your own. It is your choice. Our guide was not the most knowledgeable or easiest to hear at times. The process of seeing the Mona Lisa is ridiculous. It is just a mob scene with people pushing forward and back. They should have ropes and lines to get people through in a more orderly fashion. Great exhibits.

I went in what is called the slow season, every one in Pais must have been there that day. Tour was great guide was great, just way to crowded.

Worth getting skip the line tickets , the lines were very long, the guide was good and informative, we didn't know much about the artists and there work, but I found it very interesting listening to her and looking at the different pieces of art at the same time

The ability to skip the line to this famous museum on a week end was invaluable. Having a guide who thoroughly enjoyed his art was and added bonus. He was able to point out important information about the masterpieces that you may have missed with the audio guide. 2 hours with the guide was excellent and we spent another hour and a half there once the tour finished. Do this tour if only in Paris for a short time so you can see one of the main attractions

Great Guide, Easy To Find Meeting Place. Wonderful Art. Just Too Many Visitors . Guide Was Very Helpful Art Was Unbelievable They Were So Clever, Great Building And Wonderful Grouds A Must See.

Mary B

September 2015

I was concerned when the ticket said up to 50 participants, but in fact there were only 15-18 of us. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and, just as importantly, extremely helpful and attentive to the group. We saw the highlights and had time to explore on our own. A good way to see this overwhelming museum.
