Fernando. Felmale guide was amazing. She knew in detail about the art works she took us to. She was engaging with us. She keep the interest of our 11 & 13 year old girls. Was enthusiastic and built up a great atmosphere for the girls. I had to use a wheelchair due to knee injury and Fernanda organised it and even carried it up numerous steps. At Mona Lisa she arranged for me to get inside the barrier in my wheelchair. She went at our pace Her English was perfect. Our regret is that we didn’t have enough cash to tip her sufficiently for her amazing efforts

Our guide Fernanda was so knowledgeable and passionate about her duty to enhance our visit to the Louvre. Fernanda was so friendly and helpful when it came to any questions we had during the tour. I am myself not so experienced when it comes to history or art so I found it to be highly beneficial to have booked the tour. The museum is huge and it would be very easy to get lost and/or miss some of the highlights the museum has to offer. The tour lasts for two hours and then after you can re visit the exhibit's at your leisure if you have the energy. To book this tour is a great idea to get some background and expert information on the most popular exhibit's. Obviously the museum is so big that two hours didn't feel like enough. Although you could book to be chaperoned around for 6 hours and still come out feeling the same way. Would certainly reccomend this tour to anybody as the fast track is good for beating the long queues also. Jack, Liverpool, England.

DEFINITELY get a guide when visiting the Louvre! Our guide, Jin, was entertaining and informative. She pointed out things that I would have never noticed and had so many fun facts to offer about the art pieces and the history. Our group was intimate, which was great so we could ask as many questions and navigate the museum easily.
