I wish we could remember his name, but his honesty was the cutest. The guided tour part with him is outside. There was some confusion on that. You do the inside by yourself. Just be aware of this. Over all a great tour.

Without Jerome our tour guide there is no way we could have possibly navigated through The Lourve. He guided us around and was so knowledgeable. I cannot recommend this tour enough!!!

The tour guide was excellent and our small group was able to ask questions as we visited the masterpieces in the Louvre.

Fantastic guide who could tell very fascinating! Saw a lot in 2 hours! Recommended!!

Great guide and wonderful of you are not really an art person but want to learn
