Athena was an excellent tour guide! We enjoyed her stories, her pace, her selection and variety of things to show us in that massive place. She was great to tell us up front the game plan so we knew what to expect. I will highly recommend her and Babylon Tours to everyone we know. Thank you for making our Paris experience so wonderful!
Our tour guide was outstanding. Very informative, caring and knowledgeable. The tour was just long enough and provided an in-depth look at very specific works of art, as well as the history surrounding the piece. Definitely wets the appetite to see more of the Louvre in the future. Thank you!
Lucia was most informed and especially engaging. She sensed when we were very interested then tired needing expresso.. She answered all of our questions and praised us for knowing much information /history . We would recommend Lucia to anyone our age and social experience level. Very polite and excited about her profession. Thank you Tom and Dana Yorko, Philadelphia , Pa.
Christina was an amazing guide. So knowledgeable and interesting. She was so friendly and engaging.
Our tour guide,Felix, was amazing! He was easy to talk to, made the tour interesting and we would suggest him again to anyone.
Josephine was knowledgeable and personable. She told us interesting points about the Louvre as well as the art.
We loved Carolina! She did an amazing job providing the background to the Louvre itself as well as the back histories and significance of each work of art. She did a great job linking all of the pieces and progressing through the museum in a way that made it all fit together. She was endearing and engaging. Great job Carolina!
Excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable and able to adjust the tour for the level of interest of our family. Thanks!
Our guide was excellent, informative, very engaging. A skipping the line tour is always a benefit.
Being in a small group was the way to go. We could move easily through the crowd and got to see everything we wanted to in the time allotted. Our guide Katrina was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and kept a good pace without racing through the museum. We had opportunities to view and take pictures of everything we wanted to.
I enjoyed the Alex's commentary, and at least having the opportunity to see the key pieces in the museum. The Louvre can be much too overwhelming without the assistance of a guided tour. Alex also showed us how the Mona Lisa may look, once restored...what a difference for the better! It was great to get the background and interesting lesser-known details about some of the major works. There were times when there were too many stairs to climb, but Alex took this into account for the rest of the tour, and tried to find ways to climb less stairs.
