    Love this tour!
    Daniel was a great guide, took all our questions and made sure we understood the importance and the history of the Louvre and its art. This was a great tour and easy way to get through the museum and see all the best parts!

    Excellent guide through a crowded Louvre
    Lili is an excellent tour guide. It was very crowded at the Louvre, and she guided us along and made great use of our time. She shared the stories behind the various works of art and made it interesting and educational. My wife had injured her knee and wore a brace on her leg. Lili was patient and caring, and she allowed us to move at a good pace. She was enthusiastic, pleasant, and in every way a lovely tour guide. Thank you, Lili!

    Paris Latin Quarter
    Hugo was knowledgeable, calm and successful in engaging two teens in Latin Quarter history. His familiarity with Ireland, France, Italy and Canada provided excellent conversation references.

    Great visit with Andreina and Eduardo
    Our tour guides Andreina and Eduardo were very attentive and kind. They were very knowledgeable and dedicated in their explanations and focused the tour on the main aspects of the Louvre as we were traveling with kids and they made it entertaining for them. They dedicated time to the kids when they asked questions and found the best ways to go around the crowds to make it easier for us. We had a great experience and enjoyed the Louvre very much! Than you Andreina and Eduardo! Highly recommended.

    A great experience at the Museum D’Orsay
    We did Musee D’Orsay tour with Daniel. He was amazing! It wasn’t a museum tour as much as a story. That brought the paintings to life and provided the historical context and depth required to appreciate the art. My 14-year old daughter was fully engaged throughout the 2.5 hours. Highly recommended!

    Our guide was great. Very knowledgeable , patient, and efficient. The place was VERY crowded and noisy, so if we had used headsets listening guide’s explanation, it could have been better. Though, overall very nice trip! Thank you Mr.Z!

    Semi private Louvre tour
    Erlon, our tour guide was wonderful. He was full of information and and he had great enthusiasm for his work. He used many ancillary demonstration tools to show us the history and tell the story behind the art. All in all he was terrific and I would highly recommend him and this tour.

    Louvre lives up to its reputation! Florent, our guide, further elevated the experience!
    It goes without saying that the Louvre is one of the finest museums in the world and it absolutely lives up the its reputation. Beyond that our tour guide, Florent, was fantastic! He was able to guide us easily through the many exhibits and pieces that he selected for our tour (each more impressive than the last) - which is no small feat. More importantly, his depth of knowledge and ability to bring the art to life made the tour one of the best of our trip.

This was a great tour to hit some of the highlights in Paris. We were lucky to get Romain as our guide. Turned out my husband and I were the only ones but Romain didn't let that stop him from giving us an excellent tour. He was friendly, accommodating and very knowledgeable about history, culture, architecture and art. We learned so much! Romain shared his vast knowledge in an informative, entertaining and interesting way. You can't go wrong with this tour especially if you can get Romain as your guide.

This tour was just fantastic. Georgia was very knowledgeable and explained so much history in a way that was digestible and interesting to both those well versed in French history and those learning. She was animated and a great story teller of hundreds and thousands of years of Parisian, French, European and world history. It was fun, interesting and we highly recommend.

I had an amazing tour of the Paris city center with Georgia. Her deep knowledge, engaging storytelling, and warm personality made the experience unforgettable. Georgia brought the city's history to life, showing us both iconic landmarks and hidden gems. Her passion for Paris is infectious, and her personal touch made everyone feel welcome. I highly recommend Georgia's tour for an insightful and enjoyable exploration of Paris.

Our family of five were guided by Anatole on Christmas morning. He is personable, humorous, patient and full of historical facts and present-day analogies to keep all entertained. He also knows the city like the back of his hand and is able to offer local knowledge for food, shopping, etc. It was a joyous way to learn a history and get a lay of the city.

Belen was absolutely FANTASTIC!!! In our "short" time together we learned so much about French history and history of the city itself. We walked and we talked! It was our first day in Paris (literally right off the plane) and it was an absolutely perfect way to get familiar with the city! We even had a chance to ride the Metro, which was vital for the rest of our days in Paris.

Anastasia was an absolutely fantastic tour guide. We had seen so much of Paris that she took the time to format it to what we hadn't seen and fill us in on additional details that we did not get from our other tours. this tour was paced wonderfully, we even took time to grab a cafe and croissant along the way. I would highly recommend!

Georgia was an amazing tour guide! She was witty, hilarious, knowledgeable, and really made the history come to life. There are several opportunities to fill water bottles on hot days on the tour, and Georgia gave us some excellent recommendations for additional activities and a restaurant before separate afternoon activities by the Louvre. Our tour ended up being private, as we were the only ones who booked, so it was a particularly special day!

Francois was a fantastic tour guide. We unfortunately relied on the Uber App (didn’t pick up for 30 min when it said 4 min to start) so we were late by 30 min. Francois texted us his location so we didn’t miss the entire tour! So kind of him. His stories were informative and fun. We learned so much and really enjoyed the entire tour! He even gave us a lunch recommendation which has been our favorite dinner so far!!

The best part of the tour was our guide Georgia. What a pleasure she is and by far the best tour guide we had during our trip to Paris and possibly the best we've ever had. She is fun, has a wonderful personality, and is so knowledgeable about the history of the city. My daughter and I basically had a private tour as we were lucky enough to be the only ones that signed up for that day and Georgia tailored the tour to what we were most interested in. During the two and a half hours we saw so many interesting sites and Georgia took the time to explain and teach us all she knew about the sites. She took us to Notre Dame, to Odettes - fyi - the best creme puffs I've ever had, to the outside of the Louvre and every where in between. When the tour was over Georgia recommended a delicious cafe for lunch. The next day as we were getting ready to board the plane home we both said this tour was probably the highlight of our trip. Thanks Georgia!!
