This was definitely a value for money activity. Even though it's off season, there were still big queues so we appreciated being able to skip the queues, and skip them we did, every queue security included. Knowledgeable guide and special mention to Prabhat who keep us entertained waiting for the guide, explaining things we needed to know, and highlights we might enjoy if we were short on time.

Great experience - well organised and our guide was the best ! He ensured our safety and provided clear instructions with direct access to the Monalisa. Well done and thank you for making this a memorable tour.

The photographer was very easy to work with. He helped us find the best spots to take pictures but I would do some of the shots differently, just my personal opinion. The whole shoot took 1 hour.

it was fabulous to skip the line that is for sure. le Louvre is so big having a guide straight to the Mona Lisa was awesome. worth every cent!

All as planned visit the Louvre game from the Mona Lisa
