Tour guide was very knowledgeable, we didn’t have to wait in any lines. Definitely have a game plan for the Louvre, the guide will know the fastest way through to see the most.

Sophie was an excellent guide. So knowledgeable! She made visiting the two museums so easy and helped us to understand art history much better. Our guide was especially helpful in the Louvre. It was very crowded and would have been overwhelming without Sophie. She made sure we saw the important items.

This was a highlight of our trip. Our guide Virginia met us in our hotel lobby and together we took the metro to the Louvre. We skipped the line and she gave us a historical background of the Louvre dating back to the initial fortress from the 1200s. We then hit the highlights of the Louvre. After a quick lunch we walked to the Musee d’Orsay and again got a historical perspective on the building and it’s transformation into a museum. Then we hit the highlights including wonderful descriptions of the masterpieces. Virginia was such a kind and happy person! We loved having her as our guide and would have her show us all of Paris if we could!

Our tour guide was the most amazing young woman. She was so knowledgable and friendly. The Lourvre is so massive, that she had a nice plan to move us through it, hit some highlights, and describe French history through the paintings. Lunch at Dorsay was amazing. Highly recommend the tour.
