    Avi was a fantastic guide and we would highly recommend booking the 3-hr tour as it goes by so fast! We were running late because we entered the address into Google Maps which took us to the wrong spot. Disregard the address provided and meet outside the Louvre. We are thankful Avi did wait for us to arrive. Avi was very knowledgeable whilst also very humorous and provided an engaging tour. A great way to learn and experience the exhibits in the Louvre.

    Our guide, Manuel, was fantastic. He highlighted historical aspects of the Louvre, the historical context of various buildings, sculptures and paintings. An excellent experience which I highly recommend.
