    It was our first trip to the Louvre and we wanted to take a tour as we don't know much about art/history. It was so worth it! We were lucky that we were alone with the guide (Dasha or Daria I can't remember) and it was magical. She is so lovely. Note that there is no way you can see the whole Louvre in 2 hours so the tour focuses on the highlights and some hidden gems. I loved every minute of the tour, we spent an appropriate time in each section. As my partner has some issues hearing, I asked if they have headphones for the tour which were kindly provided. This even enhanced the experience as I could be a few meters away, taking nice pictures but still hearing the guide. Highly recommended, actually, not only highly recommended but a sure must-do when in Paris!

    Посетили в январе групповую русскоязычную экскурсию в Лувр с Дарьей. Экскурсия прошла на одном дыхании, даже не успели заметить как пролетели 2 часа! Прекрасная организация, девушка хорошо знает историю, разбирается в искусстве! Много людей в Лувре подходили и интересовались можно ли присоединиться! На русском языке найти хороших экскурсоводов очень тяжело!!! Экскурсия проходила легко, все очень понятно, задавали много вопросов и получили массу ответов!!!! Надеемся на скорую встречу с Парижем и обязательно на новые экскурсии!!!

    A fantastic experience, designed for small groups - in fact, we ended up on a private tour of the Louvre!! The guide was kind, engaging and very knowledgeable.

    The tour guides were perfectly nice but it wasn’t very engaging. To be polite, at first, I wanted to stay in the tour but just read the what the piece was about. The tour guide stood in front of the description and seemed to demand attention to their storytelling, even though it was quite similar to what was in the description. I later opted to venture the museum on my own.

    We love museums, but were intimidated by the scope of the Louvre. This 2-hour overview was everything we could have asked for.  We saw many of the biggest attractions as well as a hidden gem, the ruins of the original medieval castle on the site. Elisabeth was an incredible guide, her expertise and passion were evident and she skillfully navigated our group through the crowds without us feeling rushed. In fact, we enjoyed this tour so much, that we booked two other tours with Elisabeth, a tour of the highlights of the city and a tour of Montemarte. Thanks to Elisabeth, we left Paris feeling as if we saw many layers to this beautiful city.
