Our tour guide did not show up.. we waited thirty minutes and ended up buying new tickets. Glad we got to see it but this one was not reliable. We used Viatour for The Louvre and it was fine

The guide was very informative, but she was an 1/2 late and it was 37 degrees out. It was very cold and windy and we’re left outside to wait. But after she came The tour was great and the grounds are beautiful.
