Excellent Semi-Private Louvre Tour with Daniel!!
Sep 2019
Daniel was very knowledgeable and gave us (small group of 5) a great tour. Considering it was about 2 hrs in length, I walked away feeling I learned and saw so much. Daniel was funny, interesting to listen to, and answered all the questions we had. He guided us through so many exhibits... his knowledge of the history was truly wonderful. Thank you Daniel for a great tour!!!

Excellent guide!
Jun 2019 • Family
This was a great tour for me, my husband and our two sons (ages 11 and 14) and showed all of the highlights of the Louvre. Our guide, Ari, was exceptional and I would highly recommend him. He has a clear passion for art and the collection of the Louvre. He told very interesting stories about different works of art and was so interesting and knowledgeable. He made our visit to the Louvre really wonderful.

Excellent Tour Guide makes a great tour!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Caroline D. was a excellent tour guide that made this tour a great tour. The semi-private tour is the way to go, makes it easy to ask questions and get answers. We saw many great works of art with great insight from our guide. After this tour my wife and I decided our next trip to Paris all of our tours will be booked with Memories DMC France...

Excellent small group tour of the Louvre
May 2019 • Couples
Christiana gave us a wonderful history and art tour of the Louvre. She was so knowledgable, interesting, and fun. Being part of a small group tour made all the difference. She expertly guided us around the museum, avoiding crowds as best as possible, and giving us background to appreciate each of the art treasures. (Meanwhile, other tourists would take a quick picture and leave) We appreciate the excellent tour!

Outstanding Tour of the Louvre
Dec 2018 • Couples
Our guide, Herve, brought to life for us each of the art works we saw. His knowledge is vast and we learned so much from him. We signed up for a small group (6 or fewer people), but we were the only ones present, so it was like a private tour. We felt he showed us as many of the important pieces as possible in the time allotted, and he generously stayed with us for four hours! We left the Louvre feeling as though we had seen everything we hoped to and more. We’ve taken guided tours all over Europe, in the US and in Africa. This was absolutely among the best! Merci beaucoup, Herve.

Small group Louvre Museum Guided Tour
Feb 2018 • Friends
Our guide Herve was wonderful. He knows this Museum and is able to express this knowledge in an interesting, but entertaining way. He speaks wonderful English and has a delightful sense of humor. I have been through the Louvre several times but I now have a much better understanding of the art and the details behind some of the most famous pieces in the Museum. Don’t hesitate to use this service. You won’t be disappointed.
