What people are saying about Louvre Museum

We enjoyed our trip to the Louvre with our tour guide Lauren. A very nice and knowledgable guy speaking multiple languages not only english. He told us a lot about the history of the Louvre and also a lot about the location as well. He was guiding us outside and inside of the museum very effortlessly. We are definitely recommending the tour guide if you want a little bit of help around the place.

Was an awesome ticket, made visiting super easy! The only downside was that we booked the ticket the same day, and so we almost didn’t get our voucher in time for our visit. If you book in advance, this is perfect!

We were picked up punctually by Laurent at the meeting point. He was very accommodating and humorous and told us a lot about the history of the Louvre.

Everything was good and perfectly scheduled, thank you for the journey, really enjoyed.

Seeing the Wings and Venus, Mona do be kinda scary doe.
