“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Wife and I toured louvre today. Our first time there. We used paris muse, and tour guide Erin. This appears to be the only way to adequately experience the louvre, especially for the first time. Erin, getting her phd in art history, was a wealth of knowledge, educational, and was able to guide us around the louvre, getting a taste of the whole museum, and not allowing us, the uninitiated to get bogged down in one exhibit, enabling us to sample highlights of the whole museum.
Would HIGHLY recommend, at would use again if the opportunity arises.

“Louvre/Notre Dame in a day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Yeah....just a bad travel agent to blame (me.) One day in Paris, and the opportunity to immerse my wife and 10 year old son in the city. Hoping that adrenaline would keep all of us moving during our single day to see everything, I booked back-to-back tours with Paris Muse for the Louvre and Notre Dame in the hopes that my sports-minded, non-artistic son would get something out of the experience.

What we received from Paris Muse exceeded all hopes and expectations!

First, Inge met us for a brilliant tour of the Louvre, complete with detailed clues, a mystery, and fun for the entire family. Despite a crowded day, she was able to ensure we saw all we needed to see, and kept our son's attention glued to art the entire time. Who would have thought this could be done? Exceptional work from a caring and qualified guide - my wife and I were able to relax along the way and enjoy many of wonders, knowing that our son actually was fully engaged and learning during the tour.

Next stop was Colleen and Notre Dame. Our timing couldn't have been worse (blame the travel planner - me - once again) - Palm Sunday. A little crowded. Coleen was able to take our son through many of the stories inside the church without disrupting service, and we finished on the outside admiring the architecture. Once again, Colleen turned the tour into an adventure for our son, complete with telescope, compass, and clues.

In the end, we were all exhausted (and probably not a recommended touring itinerary for all) but we have a lifetime of memories. The proof it worked... The next night in our hotel room in western France, we had a tapestry reproduction on the wall. Based on what our son had learned on an obscure piece at the Louvre, he was accurately (I believe) able to tell us significant facts about the piece. Not bad for a hockey player :-)

“The only way to take a tour in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We took 3 separate tours through Paris Muse and had a great experience with them all. We did the Paris overview tour with Inge, the Musee D'Orsay with Pamela and the Louvre with Erin. Each of our guides was incredibly knowledgable and informative. We can't say enough good things. They made our trip so much more memorable. As a plus, each of our guides was originally from the U.S. but all had an excellent understanding of Parisian culture and history. If you're planning a tour, this is absolutely the way the go!

“The best tour we took!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We had a wonderful tour of Notre Dame Cathedral with Inge. She explained so many things about the church's architecture that we would never have known without her help. She was informative, conscientious, and very personable. She also translated for us to a pedi-cab driver so we could get to our next tour (unfortunately not with Paris Muse, and not as good) on time!
