Meet your guide at the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and walk over to the museum together. Breeze past the long lines to this popular attraction and spend more time looking at the masterpieces. 

Travel back in time and explore the Italian Renaissance, ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, and French paintings of the 19th century. Uncover how the Louvre was a royal palace as you walk through the sumptuous corridors as Kings, Queens and Emperors once did.

The tour was fantastic! It was appreciated equally by both my daughter and myself, so I would say that it is a great tour that appeals to multiple ages and interests. The best part, however, was that we were thrilled that Celia, who toured us around the Champs-Elysees a couple of days earlier, was our guide again! Celia is knowledgeable, pleasant and infuses gentle humour into her tour. She makes you feel comfortable immediately upon joining the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour. Thank you, Celia, for sharing your enthusiasm for the city! We hope to return again to Paris one day!

A great guided tour of all the must-sees in the Louvre. The Louvre is a massive museum that can be overwhelming, so starting with this tour is great so that you can go back and visit the other areas that interest you. The guide was very knowledgeable and had a fun personality to keep it lively. The time flew by very quickly so definitely recommend staying after to go back through. FYI - there a plenty of cafes and restaurants in the Louvre so you can take a break when needed because once you leave the Louvre you cannot go back!

All in all very well organized: Even when the group, guide and I did not find each other at the agreed time at the meeting point, we were able to remedy the situation immediately via the telephone hotline and the tour of the Lovre took place. Although rather expensive, the investment was worth it. Gladly French Memories again as soon as I'm back in Paris!
