Traveler Tips


  • "It's not your tour guide's responsibility to wait for you and hold up precious time that eats into other tourists' punctuality." See review
  • "Unless you have days to spend wandering the 38,000 pieces on display, skip the (really long) lines and see the art through Lilli's trained eyes." See review
  • "Private tours are not cheap but it was an unforgettable experience and Taylor managed to bridge to our 12-year-old grand-daughter, as well as her mother and, of course, us her grand-parents." See review

Adam was the most entertaining tour guide ever. We traveled to London, Paris and Rome from the United States and this tour has been my absolute favorite!

Amazing overview at the Louvre with a wonderful guide

Miriam was wonderful and somehow achieved the impossible - give us a great overview & key points of the Louvre in only an afternoon. She detailed so much about the history & secret highlights of the Louvre we likely would’ve missed out on. She is truly passionate and absolutely have us an experience we’ll never forget!

Skip the line - and the tour - busy museum = inaudible guide
Rockwell_B

I would not recommend this company. The tour guide is clearly knowledgeable about the material she was talking about, but was completely incomprehensible. The museum was completely packed with people (and hot), so it made it very, very difficult for the guide to talk to a small group (6), and objectively impossible for the entire group to hear. At different junctures we often designated a single person to actually listen to the guide, and then relate the information to the remainder of the group as it was simply too difficult for us to crowd around the guide with the throng of people at each gallery/exhibit. This is apparently a common issue, which is why every other private group we observed had headphones that the guide spoke into with a microphone, so they could directly communicate with their patrons. In short, this service is great for skipping lines, but otherwise offers little value in understanding or appreciating the art; Google was more effective at explaining what we were looking at and its gravitas.

Marcel (spelling?) was an excellent tour guide … we were about 5 minutes late due to the Paris traffic .. but we called him to let him know we were on our way and he was very gracious about the delay. He is very knowledgeable about the Art and added information that I hadn’t known. He also had a great way of explaining how theArt and the time period were connected! Excellent tour guide !!!

Taylor was an absolutely phenomenal tour guide, and this was by far the best tour we experienced in Paris! The small group was fantastic because she could talk to all of us and we could all hear even though the museum was busy. There was virtually no wait to enter the crowded museum!

Disappointed
Christopher_V
, Jun 2022
Our tour guide was 10 minutes late although none of us were advised of that . She did evidently tell one of her other tour guides to let us know which never happened. We couldn't hear a words she said during the entire tour.. There were only 6 of us on the tour so you would think that it wouldn't be that hard to address a small group we couldn't hear a word she said because she was constantly walking ahead of us speaking ahead of us and nobody knew what was being said. She was not very engaged in the group And I would not recommended this tour company to anyone. There were multiple companies doing this tour. Each of the were given a listing device for the tour guide to speak to the group. Extremely disappointed

Our tour guide, “Lili” was not made aware of my mobility disability, but quickly adapted our tour to be able to include me. The museum does have some inaccessible areas in a wheelchair, but she did her best to include me in those areas even if I was not able to see that exhibit up close. Being in a wheelchair also meant that I was able to go right up front to see the Mona Lisa!!! Truly a moment that has me thinking of my glass as half full!

VIP tours are a must
Sean_L
, Jun 2022
Tina was our personal tour guide. I must say, visiting the Louvre is visiting Paris. Tina only made the experience that much more memorable. My wife and I enjoyed listening to her story telling and exuberant knowledge in the history of every artifact and piece of art. Her delight and enthusiasm was captivating. We were even more impressed in her capacity to navigate the labyrinth of the Louvre jumping in and out if private elevators and hidden corridors to feel like we had a very private and VIP experience. There is a reason why this Museum houses the history of the world.

Marcel the perfect professional Guide.

We, 2 couples, met Marcel outside of the Louvre and had an amazing private tour. Marcel was very knowledgeable about art history and he did an excellent job of sharing some important highlights. He navigated the crowds in the museum beautifully and we came away with new information which we have talked about many times. A perfect visit to a very large museum.

Guide Julien is great
Rosandra_F

Our guide (Julien) was great. He texted 24 hours in advance confirming the tour and the meeting point location. Few minutes before the meeting time, he was already there and sent his photo, making it easier to find him. He guided us in a nice way, we saved so much time skipping the line and he explained all the Louvre master pieces in a way that made it sound simple and interesting. I definitely recommend
