It makes 65,000m of art feel manageable, giving you an overview of the world's greatest museum, getting you to corners you wouldn’t otherwise go, and making your visit FUN & focused. It's both educational and adrenalin-pumping, but you don't need to know a thing about art prior to the game. « less

Visited with 3 children aged 8-14. Loved it! Daisy met us on time and went through a detailed explanation. Our family split in 2 teams and did the treasure hunt in the louvre. Within 3 hrs we had covered at least 2/3rds of this massive museum. The hunt is well organized, well written and even the private hunt is excellent... More

When we arrived at the Louvre, we discovered a line up that went on forever. We asked one of the security officers how long the line up wait would be from the point that we were at....They said it would take 2.5 hours wait in line! ...our tour was scheduled to begin in 45 minutes. Then the security officer told... More

Question: how can I take my family with young children through the Louvre and be sure they have fun and also learn to appreciate great art? Answer: book a treasure hunt with ThatLou! What an amazing experience. In just 3 short hours the overwhelming Louvre became easy to navigate and fun to experience. Daisy has created her own treasure with... More

What a brilliant idea! A great way to explore and learn about an amazing place (the Louvre), and have fun while doing it. (Very sneaky, actually.) We took the Beauty and the Bestiary tour with 4 kids under age 16, all of whom had a ball. The directions were easy to follow and the hunt well laid out to navigate... More

This was the only way for us to have survived the Louvre while still horribly jet lagged. We made arrangements to meet Daisy on a Friday evening (hoping to avoid some of the crowds) to do the Beauty and the Beast Hunt. She arrived promptly, helped us navigate the entrance line and security, then sat us down to go over... More

This is a really cool tour for anyone, especially families. The Louvre is so overwhelming in scope, but ThatLou really narrows it down and makes it more manageable and fun and educational for all ages. Daisy is a Louvre expert and really knows all the tricks in terms of what to see, when and how to get in and out... More

We signed up for the Bastille Day hunt, which is nuts because it is one of the busiest days of the year, as entry is free and attendance is estimated to be 50% higher than normal. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and THATLou experience, starting with the fact that Daisy directed us to enter via the Porte Des Lions... More

Had a wonderful experience discovering the Louvre with THATLou. The "treasure hunt" was a fantastic way to get the kids engaged in discovering the museum's treasures. Thanks Daisy - the girls are now looking forward to their next museum experience with THATLou.

This was a great way to explore the Louvre. We went to many sections of the museum that we otherwise might not have seen.

We were planning to do the "treasure hunt" with our 12 yr. old granddaughter, but she was unable to be with us, so we did it as a couple. Daisy met us as scheduled at 9:30 a.m. in early June and gave us and another family with two kids the clear instructions. We organized ourselves and then off we went.... More

Hi Anne, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! I'm so glad you enjoyed my text attached to each piece of treasure (have really had a ball researching and writing them) and I'm pleased you support the overall concept of THATLou. The theme you chose - understandably, since you'd originally thought your granddaughter would be joining -... More
