Nancy was amazing and very knowledgeable.

Lilia is extremely knowledgeable about the city, arts and sites. She's entertaining and fun. There were many stops and sites I wasn't expecting. I also didn't expect to be walking as much so it did become a bit tiring. Tour says 5 hours but it was more like 10 with no chance to get on the river. Would have liked more time to appreciate the Louvre and visit the gift shop. It was a bit rushed.

Such a great tour and a very knowledgable tour guide. You see so many points of interest and a very good description of what you are viewing. We weren’t rushed and we managed to see everything.

Gemma who met us to start was great. Once the tour stared the guide took us. We stopped at Starbucks which was fine. 15 minutes later we stopped for a half hour at a restaurant that she prearranged. Lunch was over an hour a while later. We flew through the Louvre which of course was crowded but just a glimpse of the MonaLisa walking on the side. When we got to the Eiffel Tower she texted the tickets to one of the tourists in the group and said she wasn’t going in. That’s the last we saw of her as we wandered to what we hoped was the right line. Time management on this tour was not good.

Is the Eiffel Tower always included on this tour?
The Eiffel tower is open almost every day of the year, but it often closes on Bastille Day (July 14th) in order to set up for the annual fireworks display above the tower. Some years preparations begin on the afternoon of the 13th. If you are planning to visit the Tower around Bastille Day, please contact our customer services team to check on the hours of closure for the Tower.
Can I bring a stroller on this trip with me?
Yes, but please be aware that not every metro station that we use has working elevators. If you bring a stroller for your child you will have to carry it up some stairs.
Can you guarantee that I will see every room in the Louvre listed here?
We can't guarantee it, but it's very likely. As with all museums, particular galleries of the Louvre may be closed without prior notice, or pieces may be removed for restoration or loan. In this case, your guide will make an appropriate substitution. However, as the pieces and the rooms we visit on our tour are the most important in the museum, these are the ones least likely to close or leave on loan.
What can I bring inside the Louvre Museums?
Please note that the Louvre will not allow large items inside the museum, so you should bring only a small daypack or handbag. More specifically, only bags smaller than 21.5 in x 13.5 in x 7.5 in (55 cm x 35 cm x 20) cm are permitted. Suitcases and large bags must be left outside. Closed, clear bottles of water are allowed inside the Louvre however food is forbidden inside the site. Please be advised that the use of selfie sticks and flash photography is not allowed inside the Louvre. Additional security checks may cause longer waits at unavoidable security lines at times.
When we're on the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower, can I buy tickets to access the top of the tower.
Unfortunately, no. If you want to buy tickets to the top of the tower you have to return to the bottom, wait in line, then buy your ticket to the top. They cost €25.00 each.
Do I need to bring an ID with me on this tour?
Yes! Please ensure that all members of your party have a valid ID on them on the day of the visit. This is particularly important for guests who have qualified for a student discount.
