He was very knowledgeable. You could tell he really cared about the museum and it’s contents. A lady went to touch one of the statues ( David), and he politely asked her to refrain from doing so. He was very patient and accommodating. I had a bag that needed to checked, and he assisted me with this. It was an awesome experience. Ivan was wonderful! Keep him!!!

Wonderful tour. Great way to get your feet wet at the Louvre.

Our tour guide, Martha, was great. Did a terrific job of moving us along to some of the high points and included great stories (even had fun tidbits that kept our 8 year old interested). I had been to the Louvre and spent extensive time (days) but wanted my family to enjoy the experience and understand the history of this beautiful place so that they might go back someday and see more. Perfect tour for our family since we only had 4 days in Paris. Thank you for the memories!

Juan Carlos is THE best!

This is THE best way to see the Lourve and Juan Carlos is THE absolute best tour guide to see it with; he is knowledgeable, passionate and funny. I recommend both this company and Juan Carlos highly. They are the best at what they do. Don’t you want the best?! Of course, you do!
