Manuela, our tour guide was great! We learned a lot about the artwork that we would've have otherwise not known without the tour. She made sure our group was together and no one was left behind. She helped us see the best artwork as the museum is enormous! I definitely recommend this tour!

the tour was perfectly organized, everything went very quickly, even though there were a million people, there was no waiting at the controls, the guide was perfect, very historically and artistically educated, we all learned and saw a lot. Everyone is very happy that we visited the Louvre that way and we can only recommend it to everyone. Thank you once again for the fantastic organization of such a difficult tour. Thanks to our guide!

The Lourve museum is a fantastic place to visit. I purchased the additional option of a guide and it was well worth it. The guide was very informative, provided detailed information about displays and answered additional questions. Having a guide help to avoid walking aimlessly around the museum. The museum is huge and having a plan is essential. Would recommend booking an early time slot, this will allow you time afterwards to explore on your own.
