We only had one day in Paris before we continued on with our adventures in other parts of Europe. We decided this tour would be the best way to see as much as possible in our short time. We had the BEST time! Our guide, Thomas was very smart, informative, and funny. He made this tour an absolute blast. The segways are super fun and are easy to navigate. We are so glad we booked this trip and would do it 100 times over again! Definitely worth your time and money!

We met our tour guide near the entrance to the Louvre. She was very friendly and explained the plan. Then she handed out radios and headsets to the group. The group then went into the museum and quickly passed through security checks and the radio system helped us all stay together. We were then lead through many areas of the Louvre. It was a fascinating tour of the History of the site, Greek statues, Da Vinci works, beautiful rooms and the famous Mona Lisa.

Good experience. The guide was fun and knowledgeable. Don't go expecting a deeper understanding of history, because that's not the point. Do to forget the water.

This was a very fun experience for me and my 12 year old daughter. We learned tons about Paris. And our feet got a break from walking.

Our tour guide was great! Thank you for making our Louvre visit a memorable one!
