Great tour! Olivier was so knowledgeable and personable, the 2 hours just flew by! Really appreciated Olivier's organized plan to see as much as we did over the 2 hours. His deep dives into the details and meanings of the works of the art gave us insight and a view into the art that we would not have had looking at it ourselves. Left the tour wishing we had more time at the Louvre and more tours around Paris with Olivier!!

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.

Very good guide that dealt with adults and children (10 years)

Very good and varied orientation in the thicket of the Louvre on our first visit. Elements of art history, city history and history of France / Europe were illuminated. The tour was also a good preparation for the visit to Versailles. The guide was great on the concerns of adults and children. Very personal touch, as it is a small group of 5 people. Overall great!
