    The company Walks was great, accommodated our family last minute (I had accidentally purchased tickets for the wrong date and didn't realize until we tried to check in!). They were very friendly and polite despite my error. And especially our tour guide was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and took us through the tour without a hitch, even with large crowds. 11/10 recommended!

    It was an excellent way to see the best of the Louvre in a short time. Our tour guide Adam was very knowledgeable and so witty. He made it interesting and fun at the same time. I would definately recommend this tour for first timers and repeat visitors alike. Superb!

    An incredibly positive experience. I thought that two hours would not be enough to visit the Louvre, but in that time I learned more about art and history than in school for 4 years. It was interesting to listen to the guide all the time. He not only told stories about the objects in the museum, but he managed to teach us what details to look for in each other museum we visit. A wonderful guide and an even better lecturer. All recommendations for this tour from me.
