The overall experience was good

Having a guide with us was the right decision in Louvre museum considering the size of the museum and we were travalling with two young children. The guide was able to accomendate our request since we were only the customer. My suggestion is that to have some ideas about what to see before you come to the museum and concentrate few masterpiece during your visit.

Really awesome guide!

Our guide was really wonderful with a lovely background of facts and rich history as well as a warm, inviting disposition and a real love of her native city of lights. At the end, it seemed that we not only saw some of the best stuff the Louvre had to offer, but made a new friend as well. It definitelyvdidn't hurt that there were only 2 couples in our group.

Excellent!

It was nice having a small group - our family of 4 and another couple were the only members of our tour group. Our guide was very informative and friendly. He was happy to answer questions that all of us had. We saw the high points with the guide and then had time to spend at the Louvre on our own. We are not big art enthusiasts but definitely wanted to see the Louvre while in Paris. It was nice having someone that knew their way around the Louvre and art to point out high points. We would definitely recommend this tour!
