      Our tour lady,Katrina, was smart, funny and knew her job really well. We enjoyed the tour, but i give a star less ONLY because she was focused at the paintings more than the statues and sculptures! Too many informations about the paintings...too many!A lot less time we spent at the sculptures. Generally,we were satisfied!

      Oh it was an excellent experience. Claire is such a good guide. The museum is amazing and HUGE, so we needed a guide to show us the most important pieces of art and give us a general picture about the style and historical period of every section we would visit. So we are glad we chose this tour. And the "skip the line" system worked really good, we did not wait more than 5 minutes :)

      Highly recommended to have Violette as a tour guide. She has a broad knowledge of the historical background of the louvre as well as every masterpieces she presented to us. I had an amazing tour. Great sense of humor, 3 hrs of listening to her is surprisingly amazing. And also surprised how she can remember each of the tourist’s names. I will definitely come back and have a tour with my son, and request Ms. Violette as our tour guide. :) Definitely worth it. :)
