    Belen was an excellent guide! She took us with her on a journey through the most important and fascinating pieces of art (including the Mona Lisa). For us - not very much art experts - it was easy to follow her and her lively way of telling us the stories of the Louvre itself and the art she presented to us was fascinating. Thank you again very much!

    The skip-the-line is worth it alone! But, wow! Nancy was amazing. We saw just enough art for our taste. We didn’t have to guess or try to figure out what we were looking at, and we learned so much history along the way. It was one of our most enjoyable experiences!

    Adam was our guide, and if I ever want to go back to the Louvre I would ask for him specifically :) He gave us all the necessary details and history in a fun way. The tour went by so quickly and it was so interesting. Thank you Adam for making our first visit to the Louvre, memorable.
