Eugenie was awesome. Group of 9. At the Louvre with some little kids. Eugenie did a great job of interacting, teaching and entertaining. It was a great tour.
David PodolskyUnited States
Everything was "fine" and yet it felt "flat". She technically did a good job, and she was flexible with changes in times of the meeting. Having said that, it was just "OK".
Amy FisherUnited States
Eugenie was great! She was very knowledgeable and personable. We really enjoyed our time with her!
Martha FarabeeUnited States
Eugenia was very knowledgeable. We learned and lot and were happy to navigate the overwhelming crowds with a guide who knew her way around. Would highly recommend using this service to anyone going to the Louvre - first timers as well as those making repeat visits.
Leslie OsterweilUnited States
Eugenie was the perfect guide for our tour to the Louvre with our 13 year old granddaughter. She hit the highlights and gave her the overview (just what we had asked for). Animated and upbeat, a perfect combination. Tours by Locals never disappoints...we will continue to use them wherever we travel.
Joy CookUnited States
Genie is a superb guide. We so enjoyed our Louvre 2 hour. Genie is knowledgeable and articulate. She was able to give relevance to each painting we viewed: With her explanations we understood the historical and social implications of the art works.
Elle HansenUnited States
Eugenia's tour of the Louvre was PERFECT!!! We really, really enjoyed her. We would definitely seek her out specifically upon return. She made 8 miles of museum tangible and not so overwhelming. Clearly more time to spend there, but she was lovely, a wonderful communicator, historian, and highly adaptable to the client interests and pace.
Kathleen FeldermanUnited States
Great tour! She was very flexible and made sure we saw the art we were interested in. Very knowledgeable and pleasant!
Katherine KimUnited States
Very knowledgeable and adapts the tour to you
Kim R.United States
Eugenie was a pleasure to have as our tour guide and I would definitely recommend her! There were 6 of us and our goal was to hit the many of the main attractions as possible in a short period of time. Eugenie bought our passes to the Louvre and we walked right in passing by the long lines. Eugenie educated us on all of the pieces we saw and we loved how she communicated everything to us with her personal flare. Thank you Eugenie!
Elvira KotlyarUnited States
It was easy and lovely!! Thank you!!!
Brian FridmanUnited States
Great very knowledgeable guide.
Carsten UdengaardUnited States
Eugenie was fabulous! She kept us all engaged and wanting more. We couldn't believe when the tour ended, it felt like we had just scratched the surface! I would highly recommend Eugenie for this tour or any other. She loves her city and enjoys what she does.
Andrew ToppingUnited States
5 out of 5. Great overview and good for kids!
Sue BoalsUnited States
Knowledgeable, energetic and fun. A must for the Louvre. It would have been impossible without Eugenie. Thank you!!!
Ian SeebergUnited States
Experiencing the Louvre with Eugenie was exceptional. One could wander around aimlessly in there for months unless you know how to get around like she does. More importantly, she took us through the paintings and sculptures in a fascinating creative timeline; pointing out the evolution of style, technique, perspective and subject matter. All of which brought the works to life through historical context. Best museum experience we've ever had.
Brett McQuernUnited States
Eugenie made the tour feel very personal. She brought the stories and history of the paintings to life. Thank you for a memorable afternoon!!!
Shannon CoxUnited States
Eugénie was so great at Musée d'Orsay we decided we HAD to have her give us the tour of the Louvre. She got in so quickly-we were nervous when we saw the long lines. She hit all the highlights-including the Mona Lisa (and she explained why it is so famous). Then, we got to see the interesting pieces. All were accompanied by amazing insight and some funny stories. What a great day!! She is truly remarkable.
Maryna TullyUnited States
We loved this tour!
Megan BrummerUnited States
Jennifer P.United States
We really enjoyed this tour with Eugénie. She made the museum manageable and tailored the tour to our interests. Even my 10 year old nephew loved it and still talks about it today.
Jim HaljunUnited States
Eugénie is awesome and I would book another tour with her. Excellent language and communication skills, expert knowledge of history and art history and she made it fun for our entire family (ages 3 to 75). Highly recommend!
Lisa GilfillanUnited States
Eugénie gave us a wonderful tour of the Louvre. She was knowledgable, patient, and understanding when our 11-month-old grand baby had to nurse at the start of the tour! Her plan to visit some of the most important pieces was fantastic. We have been to the Louvre before (our children and their spouses have not), and we cannot remember a better time. We would recommend Eugénie to all considering a Louvre tour.
Chandler MooreChicago, ILLINOIS, United States
our group thoroughly enjoyed the tour and felt like Eugenie was very knowledgable. We would highly recommend her to others.
Lori C.Duluth, GA, United States
Eugenie knows her art history and she presents it well. Great 2 hour tour seeing highlights at Louvre. It was an organized, knowledgeable presentation that also helped us shift right into touring Orsay with her the very next day.
Joanne DietchUnited States
I was so happy that we retained Eugenie's services to take an overview tour of the Louvre. I was traveling with my niece, who was a first-time visitor to Paris, and Eugenie helped her understand the breadth of treasures at this most amazing art gallery. Eugenie is an energetic and charming person who you just like being with. Highly recommended.
Eugenie was very knowledgeable about art history at The Louvre. She was also very accommodating to our wishes during the tour.
Kevin GillilandUnited States
Eugenie was great. She was very knowledgeable and very efficient in helping us see the highlights of The Louvre in such a short time. She was able to answer our questions and gave some insights that were new to us even though we had (also with guides) been through large museums in Florence and Rome that also contained much art from the renaissance. She was a lot of fun and I recommend her and this tour.
Eleonora BubaUnited States
Katherine WolterUnited States
An excellent tour that Eugenie provided and customized to our stated interests. She speaks very well and drew us into the information she had regarding the art and history behind many of the pieces.
Jim RubinUnited States
Our family of six (mom, dad, daughter 18, sons 16 14 and 12) toured both the Louvre and the Musee D'orsey museums with Eugene. She did a great job of engaging the kids. She has a surprising amount of knowledge about the artwork in these museums. She had especially interesting stories to tell about many of the sculptures. We would highly recommend Eugenia to anyone touring these museums. We corresponded with her in advance and she customized our tour to our tastes.
Tama ShorUnited States
Private Louvre tour was wonderful. We really enjoyed our tour guide Eugenie. She had some amusing insight to share along with gave us a great art history 101 lesson and tips about what else to see at the museum when we pop back in on our own.
Kennedy CoganUnited States
Eugenie was our guide and she was lovely! We scheduled a 2-hour tour of the highlights..it was my 13-year old daughter's first trip to Paris and we only had a handful of days to squeeze in a very long list of things we wanted to do. Eugenie did a great job of providing historical context for the pieces that we saw and in a way that was understandable for my teenager. When we return to Paris, we will do this again!
Jeff AdamsUnited States
Eugénie was great. She is very personable and has a great knowledge of art and history. We would've been lost in the Louvre without her. Don't even try to visit the Louvre without a guide, and if you can get Eugénie, book her.
John BroomeUnited States
Eugenie gave us a good overview of the museum in two hours. She is very knowledgeable and friendly.
Nigel TwoheyCayman Islands
Kristin ColemanUnited States
We knew we didn't have much time to see the Louvre, nor much patience from my 2 teen-aged boys, so I asked Eugenie to try to give us a taste for what the museum has to offer. She was very knowledgeable, somewhat quiet, and led us from piece to piece, telling a story about the evolution of art. We didn't see a lot, but we saw all the highlights, as well as learned what made them special (not necessarily what you think!). The private tour was worth it because I know I'll remember what I saw and learned.
Heather WoodlandUnited States
We loved Eugenie. She was a fantastic tour guide and really helped us get te most out of our time at the Luvee. I highly recommend her!
Fahad AlphaSaudi Arabia
Nice personality and a pleasant way of explaining the details.
Excellent tour in Louvre. Eugenie picked interesting and relevant parts for us to see and explained well the historical connection of those works. Highly recommended.
David R.United States
Marvelous, complete and a great use of time, Eugenie did it all for our two teenagers and their elders. A skip the line Louvre tour early morning, the last day of 2016 was just what was needed. We saw all the high spots smoothly done in spite of the crowds. Eugenie accompanied each stop with considerable information that all, teenagers included, found engaging and educational. English was outstanding and she was delightful to be with. We look forward to having her help again next time.
Cathy RosarioUnited States
Teresa AlexanderUnited States
The tour and the information Eugenie provided was exactly what we were looking for. We had been to the Louvre before, but so much nicer to have a guide to help you along - rather than wondering around for hours. I would not only recommend the tour but also Eugenie.
Susan StogelUnited States
Michelle KonermanUnited States
We only had 2 hours to tour the Louvre. Eugenie took a list of 10 things I 'had' to see and was able to get us to all 10! She was extremely kind and knowledgeable. The Louvre is somewhere you could spend days exploring and she hit all the highlights in 2 hours!
Mark PaddyUnited States
Eugenie was great. It felt like being with a friend. Her understanding of Art and knowledge of the Louvre was excellent! My wife and I could not be more happier with Eugenie! Thank-You!
Kenneth YawWillis, TX, United States
Eugenie was an excellent guide. This was our first visit to Paris, and we had limited time to see the sites. Eugenie was very knowledgeable, her commentary was informative, and she moved our party of 4 expertly through the Louvre to view the major attractions. While we could have spent days at the Louvre, this 2-hour tour is ample to hit the highlights. I highly recommend a private guide to maximize the experience.
Anthony CowieUnited States
Eugenie was fantastic. She did an amazing job, she made the art come alive as she expertly guided our family through the Louvre. Can recommend her, and this tour, unconditionally.
Katherine DowningUnited States
Eugenie is amazing - So smart and well spoken! She customized the tour for our family, frequently checked in with us to see if she was meeting our needs, and she is so knowledgable. We highly recommend her for families with kids. Excellent tour.
Jackie PrawUnited States
Our guide was knowledgeable in regards to the treasure of the Louvre.
Suzanne NormanUnited States
Wow, Eugenie did what I thought would be nearly impossible- a two hour tour through the Louvre that made me feel inspired and not exhausted! I love her anecdotes and skill at navigating through so many wings. I usually skip the Louvre due to it's size, but this tour with her knowledge and enthusiasm gave me a new appreciation for this fantastic museum. Friday night was a great time to go, as well.
Joe BeersUnited States
Eugénie was so knowledgeable and even made it interesting for our 7 year old son. Great experience and would recommend to anyone wanting to get the most of their visit to the Louvre. Thanks Eugénie!
She was very flexible and easygoing, and caters to our needs/wants. She made it interesting without being too draggy or boring or too much information for us. We managed to see what we came to see and enjoyed ourselves greatly!
Craig ChenowethUnited States
Eugenie is a marvelous guide. This was my first trip to Paris. My tour was fun and very informative. I really enjoyed the Louvre. I highly recommend Eugenie
Eugenie is a very knowledgeable art historian, and gave us a very interesting and factual insight into the many exhibits at the Louvre. She was able to make a 2 hour guide relevant without overpowering us with information.
Jennifer MackUnited States
Excellent tour of the Louvre. She moved the tour along at a good speed and kept our kids engaged during each of the sections. We saw a huge portion of the museum in 2 hours which was perfect for us.
Maryann A.United States
We thoroughly enjoyed our Skip the Lines Louvre tour with Eugenie. Her professionalism, experience, and knowledge were outstanding. Her skill enabled us to enjoy the Louvre treasures to the max, and we highly recommend Eugenie to you.
Douglas YeatesUnited States
Eugenie is excellent. We enjoyed her knowledge of both The Louvre as well as The Palace at Versailles---she was outstanding. Her English is perfect and has a great demeanor about her----very comfortable and very informative. I would certainly recommend her for your tour of either Versailles or the Louvre---you will not be disappointed.
James H.Concord, NORTH CAROLINA, United States
Eugenie did a great job of making the huge and confusing Louvre Museum a pleasure for us. She is very knowledgeable and explained the art in a way we could understand and appreciate. She is very comfort person to be around and we look forward to our next tour with Eugenie.
Angela JarvisUnited States
I recently returned from Paris April 10,2015. During our trip Eugenie was our outstanding guide at the Louvre and Versailles. She was extremely friendly and most helpful, but most of all very knowledgable in both history and art. I am 65 and my mother 85; we have travelled extensively and give Eugenie a 5/5. She definitely enhanced our visit and also navigated us through the huge tourist crowds.
Tracy SteinsapirUnited States
5 out of 5. We couldn't have gotten through museums without her. Thank you Eugenie!
Sherri Z.Glencoe, IL, United States
Touring the Louvre with Eugenie could not have been better. Traveling with a 16, 14, 11 and 9 year old can be a little goofy. The museum was packed, but Eugenie knew the best routes to get to what we wanted to see. Eugenie explained the art and it's importance in every way. When we talked about our favorite part of the day, we all agreed it was being with Eugenie. Without her would have been an unpleasant day of frustration. She had a plan, she has all the art history knowledge and she was AWESOME!
Scott BrandUnited States
Excellent tour, we had a wonderful time and learned a great deal. I would not hesitate to ask for the same tour guide.
Vicki ForswallUnited States
Eugenia was a wonderful guide. The mass of people is difficult to navigate at the Louvre at this time of the year but she handled it incredibly well and was very well informed and easy to understand. She has a great attitude and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Lauren Margolinlong grove, IL, United States
great tour. hit the highlights as we expected. took exactly 4 hours.
Bj HarrisUnited States
Eugenie was an excellent guide. She kept a perfect pace & she shared so much history & made our experience exciting, Not only did she make what we saw in the Lourve come alive, but after the tour she walked us outside and showed us a nice cafe to eat lunch. She also took time to explain how to use the metro and bus system, all on her own time after our tour was over. I highly recommend Eugenie to anyone planning a trip to Paris.
Gayle EarnestUnited States
Eugenie was great. She was very knowledgeable and gave a personal touch that made her very enjoyable. She was great with our 16 year old granddaughter.
Michael BrinesUnited States
She moved very fast and did not wait to see if you were following , you either kept up or else, she seemed bothered if you lagged a little, had her for 2 days and dreaded it the whole time, the 4 of us were all in agreement how we felt NEVER would I ask for her again
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry you had this impression. I would have been happy to plan less in the limited time to give you a slower pace. The Louvre was closing and I still wanted to show you as much as I could. The supposedly ending time for Versailles was 5pm in Paris but at this time we were only on the way back to the train station, it means you had extra time but maybe you did not notice it. I knew Kenneth was fearing to be rushed and I asked many times if he felt rushed, he replied no every time.
Bonnie JasiunasUnited States
The Louvre was our 2nd with Eugenie and with her in depth knowledge of French history, we not only knew what pieces of art we were looking at, we understood its history, relevance to French culture and which artist did what and why. Eugenie has a passion for art that is inspiring and contagious. We were mesmerized by story of Marie di Medici. Her ability to convey a sense of cultural understanding enhanced our understanding of why the Louvre is important to western civilization.
Robert OrentUnited States
The Louvre is a gigantic museum. With Eugenie, we were able to navigate the museum in a carefree manner. She knows her way around. We were able to see all of the "must sees" (Mona Lisa, Venus De Milo, etc). She was able to explain the technique progression of sculpture and painting well. She was also well versed in the historical stories behind many of the works. It is clear that Eugenie loves art and loves the Louvre.
Marjorie J HebertSAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, United States
Eugenie was an excellent guide. We learned to evaluate a painting to get the painter's meaning and tell the difference between statues by the Romans or Greeks.We saw all the outstanding items not to be missed on a tour of the Louvre. Marge and Paul CA
Steven SilvermanUnited States
You can spend months in the Louvre but if your time is limited this was a wonderful tour. In three hours we saw the highlights and would have had no idea how to navigate through such an enormous museum without a guide. She was able to give us the historical significance of what we saw which makes the art work that much more interesting. We would have roamed around aimlessly without Eugenie and from the moment we walked in she was explaining what we were looking at - I would highly recommend this tour.
Lorraine LincolnUnited States
This is the second year in a row we used Eugenie and we love her! She is extremely knowledgeable and personable. I would recommend her to anyone looking to see the Louvre, Musee d' Orsay and Verailles. You will not be disappointed. Her passion for art is inspiring and has given me a new understanding and admiration for the artists. i would look no further for the perfect tour guide, Eugenie is the best at what she does!
Our 2nd tour with Eugenie was at the Louvre. It was fantastic! We learned so much! In 3 hrs we saw all the 'key' areas described, plus Eugenie was nice enough to bring us to the Egyptian area just because we wanted to see it. The children had a great time. In one room, she sent them on a treasure hunt so that she could go into greater detail telling the stories of certain paintings with my husband and me. There is no way we could have experienced the Louvre in the way we did had we done it on our own.
Mary Beth L.Italy
We had a great time with Eugenie. She was very knowledgable about the items we saw in the Louvre. She also had a great sense of humor and made the tour very enjoyable. She bought the tickets in advance so we skipped the long lines. We highly recommend Eugenie when touring the Louvre.
Susan RichterUnited States
Eugenie gave us a great tour on a very busy day at the Louvre. She was also flexable in changing our meeting location due to rain
Ann FreinScottsdale, AZ, United States
This was our second time with Eugenie and she certainly did not disappoint. Her knowledge of art made our visit very interesting (also for our 13 year old granddaughter.) Her suggestion to go from 6-9 was very helpful! We did not have nearly the crowds. Eugenie is a great and fun guide!
Janet OsmondUnited States
Wonderful tour! Highly recommend it! Not only did we get to see the key pieces of art but we got a lesson on art history! Eugenie is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about art which made for a great learning experience for us and our two children!
Amy RileyUnited States
Eugenie exceeded our expectations! She is very sensitive to the customer's wishes and just a joy to be with! Thanks, Eugenie, for making the tour extra special for our daughter's graduation gift. We saw all the main sights in a VERY large museum...we would certainly have gotten bogged down on our own! Totally worth the price!
Michael AshtonUnited States
Eugenie was a wonderful guide. She was very knowledgeable and was able to provide invaluable context and meaning to the artwork she showed us during our family's visit to the Louvre. We would have been lost and overwhelmed without her. This was the highlight of our stay in Paris.
Gail RubelUnited States
Wonderful, informative tour with Eugenie. Hitting the highlights in just 3 hours was a great way to see the Louvre.
Judy WilliamsUnited States
Eugenie helped us plan a perfect visit to the Louvre. We were so happy with her tour, I would not hesitate to book Eugenie in the future or to ask her to put together a customized tour. Eugenie was able to tailor our Louvre visit around a family member's mobility issue and need to use the elevators without sacrificing the important things to see at the Louvre. I will definitely be contacting Tours by Locals in the future, this guide was first rate. Thank you so much Eugenie!
David LodwickUnited States
Learned more in 3 hours than we thought possible. Skip the Lines is an excellent tour and the only way to see the Louvre!
Lorraine LincolnUnited States
I highly recommend booking a tour of the Louvre with Eugenie! She was extremely knowledgable and passionate about the art.... Her explanations of the how's and why's of the different time periods were informative and interesting. The 3 hours went so quickly and we spent our entire lunch talking about how great this tour was. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip and I am hoping to get back to Paris in the Spring and I will definitely book a tour with Eugenie again!!!!
Kathy KocharhookUnited States
Eugenie's English was excellent and her knowledge of subject matter and the building itself was excellent. The tour was customized but also provided a good overview for our family. Eugenie had a thorough knowledge of the artwork.
We loved the Louvre tour. Thanks for sharing some of your knowledge with us.
My husband said, "She was damned good!" This is from a man who, at best, could be decribed as a hardsell when it came to seeing The Louvre. Eugenie was knowledgeable, friendly and interesting and she was able to make my husband feel included. He came away from the tour having enjoyed the experience and with a better appreciation of what we were shown. Thanks to Eugenie for sharing with us her love of fine art and giving us a tour that took into account our interests as well as the more famous highlights.
Melissa GutierrezUnited States
very effective and efficient. learned a great deal from an obviously well-informed and educated guide. We had time constraints on a very crowded day and she organized and prioritized based on our interests. if you want a no-nonsense tour as well as an education in art history, Eugenie is your guide!
Christine BohorquezUnited States
Wonderful 3 hours with Eugenie. Had great knowledge of the Louvre and it's artwork. You can tell she loves her work and is a great instructor to those with art knowledge deficits. She even understood my teenagers lack of interest and treated them with kindness even though engagement with those two was at best minimal. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a truly wonderful guide.
Mark GordonUnited States
Eugenie was extremely knowledgeable about the art. She was excellent with our children.
Mary Kay W.United States
Eugenie was an exceptional guide -we could not imagine anyone who could possibly be better, Pleasant, prompt and so knowledgeable about incredible works of art. We learned so much in a 3 hour tour of the Louvre- much that we will stay with us forever. We saw everything that one would want to say they saw in a short visit- the Mona Lisa, Venus deMilo, David and much more- thanks to Eugenia. We would highlky recommend her to anyone wishing for a wonderful guide. The Webbs and Bennetts, Fairhope, AL
Ann ConeUnited States
Eugenie was a great guide and took the time to answer all of our questions. I highly recommend her for a great tour of the Louvre.
Very accomodating and knowledgable about subject.
Paul ChapmanUnited States
Excellent in every regard, timely knowledgeable and personable. an excellent guide.
Cindy WeitzelWest St. Paul, MB, Canada
In the 4 hours Eugenie gave my daughter and I an amazing tour of some of the highlights . She has a great talent for bringing the Louvre to life and left us with knowledge we will remember because of her ability to pass on the history. We very much loved our time with Eugenie. Wished we would have booked her for more tours for some fantastic history experiences.
Judy CerenziaUnited States
Our Louvre tour with Eugenie was very interesting and educational. The Louvre is overwhelming, and without a guide we could have wandered for days and only seen one tenth of what Eugenie showed us in 3 hours. Although there are certainly more precious artifacts to see, we thoroughly enjoyed our walk through history. Eugenie is also very friendly - we were very comfortable taking multiple tours with her during our stay in Paris. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in a Louvre tour.
Susan HaskinUnited States
We really enjoyed our tour with Eugenie. She was very knowledgeable and made the Louvre interesting for both the adults and teens in our group. We would not hesitate to use her again!
