  • Our guide's depth of knowledge exceeded our expectation. The time passed quickly with her. Money well spent! JW, Colorado

  • Our tour guide was the most amazing young woman. She was so knowledgable and friendly. The Lourvre is so massive, that she had a nice plan to move us through it, hit some highlights, and describe French history through the paintings. Lunch at Dorsay was amazing. Highly recommend the tour.

  • Excellent guide/great experience.

  • It was nice to avoid the lines at the Museums. The guide was friendly and kind. However, she did not offer much information beyond what a printed guide would have, and very little background on artists and styles. For $650 I was expecting an expert art guide. I feel I was shortchanged on this tour.

  • The tours were fantastic. Helen was exceptional and we would highly recommend both the tours and Helen to anyone inquiring into whether this is both highly educational and worth the money. Thank you very much for our entire family. Best, PDW

  • Absolutely wonderful! We were able to see what we most wanted to see, and our guide even went over her time allotted. We only had one day, but managed to see works by Da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Botticelli, Raphael, Renoir, Monet and Cezanne, to name only a few. However, we only were able to see a small bit of all of the art there, so spend several days if you can.

  • Tour guide was excellent

  • Skip the line did not work at Musée d'Orsay. I the Louvre it worked only at the second location, not at the first try. The guide tried to make up for the missed Museé d'Orsay by improvising a short tour for the couvert passages which was a nice try, I appreciated it, but originally I booked the tour for the possibility of avoiding the line and spend the time instead in the museums.

  • This was a great tour and a must as there is much to see.

  • This was one of the longest tour that we had. We walked for 6 hours and didn't get to see everything. Our tour guide was amazing. She was very knowledgeable, polite and helpful. We didn't have to wait in line which was nice. This is a must see for once in a life time.
