Had a great time with Veronique! She told us interesting stories about the history of the place and we saw all the highlights of the museum, and some more, all within the tour time. She was wonderful company for the evening. Would highly recommend the tour, and look forward to visiting again!

Akiko was amazing. So knowledgeable and flexible with what we were interested in. She made the line into the Louvre interesting with facts about the grounds as we were waiting. Highly recommend!

Getting to learn more about Louvre's early days as a medieval castle was the best part. Bad aspects: Poorly prepared guide. She did not clearly identify herself with a sign or flag so we had to ask several other guides before we finally found her. She also repeatedly coughed into both hands. She offered few mysteries or murder examples and largely ignored needs of older participants (who couldn't walk as fast as hers) and younger one (our 11 year old granddaughter who was mildly bored)..

We had this tour on 6/12/22 during our honeymoon and it was fantastic. The guide was extremely knowledgable and fun, and when the other couple on our tour bowed out from tired legs, it became a private tour for us for another couple hours. Best possible way we can imagine seeing the Louvre and we'll hold it in our hearts forever. Tremendous thanks to our guide!

Definitely not what was advertised- we were hoping for a more "off beat" tour of the Louvre and a different take on the works. Instead, this is a standard "highlights" tour with a bit of art history mixed in. Very informative, but not what we expected
