Paola was a wonderful tour guide and selected the most important points at the Louvre to maximize our time. Honestly, it would probably take days to really see everything! An hour and a half was a good start as she explained the layout and how exhibits were organized. Her English was perfect and she was extremely knowledgeable about the various art pieces. The Skip the Line option was a must do! The line to this place goes for blocks!

Tour guide Paola Perezpriego was very knowledgeable about the Louvre and art history.. She was very enthusiastic about the subject and clearly carried that over into her presentation. The small number of tourists (4), provided a much more intimate gathering, and was able to quickly escape the crowds.

While I've been to the Louvre many times, this was my first private tour, and it was well worth it. Our guide, Hugo, was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable, with a good sense of humor. I would definitely recommend this tour, with Hugo as your guide.

I had an amazing private tour with Hugo at the Louvre! He is a French Art enthusiast and PhD student with a wealth of knowledge about the Louvre. He explained so many of the exhbits in detail with a bit of humor. He made sure to give us time to enjoy the exhibits without being rushed and made the tour interesting by asking questions and making us think. I highly recommend seeing the Louvre with a tour guide and hopefully you will be lucky enough to get Hugo as your guide!

This was a wonderful experience. Our guide Sara was very informative and gave us an experience in the Louvre that we would not have had experiencing it on our own. Her knowledge and passion for the pieces of artwork and sculptures was all anyone could ask for out of a guide. Anyone wanting a great personal experience in the Louvre should definitely book this tour.
