Jamos was an excellent tour guide to guide us through the Louvre and is very knowledgeable at what she does. Not being knowing a lot about the works of art, sculptures and architecture she brought a greater understanding and appreciation to it. I just want to say we had a wonderful tour guide and great experience.

It was easy to find the group at the Arc du Carrousel. The tour guide spoke great English and had a lot of great information to share. It was very easy to hear him through our personal ear pieces. At times he walked very quickly, too quickly for some in our group but I appreciated the swiftness. We saw key pieces of art and sculptures. He was determined to end our tour in Napoleon's living room/dining room, etc. Although they started to close this part of the Louvre early, he got us there!

Adam with CityWonders was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He was so knowledgeable about all of the art and history inside and outside of the museum. He was funny and made the tour fly by. It was one of our favorite experiences we had the whole trip and it was definitely thanks to him. The Louvre was crowded but Adam was able to show us everything and keep us all together.

Once you see the queues you realise the value of the Skip the Line options! Our guide was great sorry I have forgotten her name - really knowledgeable about Art History and particular paintings in the Louvre so could talk in-depth about many of them with interesting insights. She also highlighted and spoke about lesser known works with knowledge and passion. The tour ensures you see the highlights Mona Lisa etc, and then at the end of the tour it is your choice whether to stay in the Louvre to explore on your own. The Louvre is so vast so the tour gives you a good grounding of what you might want to see on your own and where it is. The group size was also manageable.

Excellent - Felix was the best tour guide ever. Usually I’m not that interested in art history but Felix was so engaging that he made everything so interesting and enjoyable!

Our guide, I think her name was Josephine was awesome. She was very knowledgeable, funny and helpful. This tour was very helpful in navigating this very large museum. with all of its collections of art and statues. I would recommend this tour for sure.

This was a really good tour. Adam knew so much and answered so many questions we all had. He was an incredible guide. Made the highlights of the Louvre come to life! Go team Adam!

If you can visit the Louvre in the evening the crowds are thinner, and the lighting is really dramatic on the art. The museum is really big, and it's very easy to get turned around, so a tour was a great option to see the highlights. We were not fond of our tour guide on this tour, and I must say this is the first time in about 20 or more tours with Viator that we didn't necessarily care for our guide. Although knowledgeable, he was an art major and didn't seem much of a people person. Didn't matter though, because it was the famous works of art that we came to see, and this is a great way to see them.

Our tour guide, "Z", was exceptionaland gave us a great perspective of the art in the Louvre. I would highly recommend this tour.
