Our guide, Aurelia, (I hope that is correct) was warm and engaging and kept up with all of us (13 guests I believe, so not a huge group) very well in an extremely stressful and crowded Louvre. She was very knowledgeable and informative, and spiced her comments with humor as well. I feel that she chose her highlights very well. She felt very welcoming and friendly. I would book again!

The tour was very interesting - I was fascinated by what the guide was telling us all the time. The tour was about 2 hours including meeting and getting to the Louvre, so about 90 minutes for the actual tour. I though a 3-hour tour would be too much, so I booked the 1.5/2h one, but now I think I would have really enjoyed a 3-hour one, since after hour tour finished, I wished it was longer because it was so interesting.

Our guide (Lawrence) loves what she does and it shows in her enthusiasm to show us the best of the Louvre. Her patience and her interest made us so engrossed in the history of Paris and in all the collections of the museum. I want to do this again with her!
