We Messed up on time & she called us and she waited for us and gave us a fantastic tour of the Louvre. She was very knowledgeable of its history, and of the current contents of its collections. There was 5 of us, 2@75,50,19 & 16 and she was able to keep all of us entertained & engaged. She used a headset system which made the tour great and worked to keep each of hearing every word. My 19 year old granddaughter asked a lot of question and she had all the right answers'. As always ToursByLocals delivered

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Leah for this great review and for booking with me! You and your family are great!

Words cannot describe the amazing private tour of Louvre highlights that we enjoyed today. I can sleep better each night knowing that Caroline is the guardian of these majestic pieces and telling the world about their history and unique stories. I learned so much today.

Caroline was the perfect guide. She is extremely knowledgeable but equally gracious and kind. She could not do enough for us. She is also energetic and seemed to enjoy and be further stimulated by our questions. My wife had a sore knee and she questioned the Louvre staff as to the functioning of all elevators and escalators, sometimes running ahead to check for these. We will be sure to recommend Caroline to all our traveling friends and acquaintances. Scott Schafrank

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Scott! We had a great tour and I hope the knee is better now!!! Caroline

So much to see and learn and Caroline made it all manageable and so much fun! We saw all the "super stars" on display -- and more importantly we spent times away from the throngs of people learning about the Louvre - its history, architecture. It was a great day. Jack

Bought this tour for my parents for their joint birthday gift during our family trip to Paris. Caroline was professional, organized, & responsive with me when planning to coordinate the tour. They said it was an absolutely amazing tour. She made sure they got to see everything they had on their list that wasn't closed. She answered all their questions, offered interesting history and information. My mother was in tears she was so moved & happy. Dad couldn't stop raving about it. Thank you Caroline!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Rachel and her family were great visitors and were a pleasure to guide!

Caroline was fantastic. She met us right on time and wisked us right in the side entrance. The lines and crowds that day were unbelievable, but she got us in, knew her way around and we saw everything we wanted. My daughter and son had a lists and Caroline made sure we saw everything and more. Totally changed the experience for us, explained paintings and made the experience so much more. Don't know why you would do the Louvre without a guide and Caroline was the best. Highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Misha! Thanks to you and your family for a very pleasant tour at the Louvre!

Caroline was superb. My wife and I learned so much - not just about the artwork but about the history of each piece and its impact on the world. Caroline was also kind enough to listen to what we wanted to see and tailored the tour around those needs. Mercie Caroline for a wonderful day at the Louvre and for an education that will last a lifetime.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Saad for a wonderful tour!

Caroline was referred by a friend who had used her previously for a private tour. We were not disappointed with the referral. She was very pleasant and easy to deal with. She knew the Louvre well, taking us to all the "hot spots" as we navigated a very crowded venue. Would highly recommend her services.

Caroline is an amazing tour guide. There is so much to the Louvre that I asked her to go through the eyes of a 7 and 10 year old, to keep the attention span for kids (and adults). We got right in no waiting - major time saved We explored the highlights (Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo) as an adventure She kept the pace moving and kept it very insightful She showed us moats, ancient Egypt, Greek statues (and explained why they were nude..for giggling boys) She was absolutely fantastic Thanks for a great tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Jason!

What a perfect tour! Caroline was so wonderful, so knowledgeable, and completely flexible. She custom-designed a tour to meet our interests, matched our pace, answered all our questions, and even rescheduled and reorganized the tour at a moment's notice based upon our timing and interests. She was so passionate that her enthusiasm was contagious. Highly highly recommended. And I urge you to spring for the private custom tour if you can - well worth it. Caroline, thank you so much. We loved it!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Rene for your comments, I loved it too!!!

Caroline was a knowledgeable, articulate and very personable guide. She whisked us through the Louvre easily, but allowed us to stop at objects that caught our eye and discuss. Even though my husband and I have different levels of background in art history, Caroline did a good job of keeping both of us interested. We would heartily recommend her as a guide for the Louvre.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mille mercis Jane, it was a pleasure to guide you!

Our Louvre tour with Caroline flew by. We visited many of the most notable pieces in the collection, with Caroline telling us why these pieces were so important artistically as well as historically…all while being entertaining. She put into context for us how the artifacts related to each other and to French culture. We highly recommend touring with Caroline.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci beaucoup Ellen, it was a pleasure!

Caroline did a fantastic job holding our attention the full three hours of our evening tour. We (4 adults) had already had a long day with another long tour that morning. However, Caroline made the Louvre come to life showing us things we never would have picked up on. She was excellent!

We loved our tour with Caroline. It was our first time to the Louvre and Caroline guided us through the highlights in a clear and concise manner. One can spend days in the Louvre, so having a knowledgeable guide like Caroline is worth the money. I mentioned a piece I wanted to see (The Scribe) and she was nice enough to find it and fit it in the tour. I would highly recommend any tour Caroline offers!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! I hope to see you again in Paris and be able to show you more! Merci

Caroline was on-time and well prepared to guide my wife and sons through the Louvre. She thoughtfully showed and explained to us many things at the museum and also taught us about French culture. She did an especially good job keeping my teenage sons engaged (I did not think this was possible). This was a great tour! At the conclusion she gave us some helpful recommendations for the rest of our visit. Very much appreciated!

Caroline is a fantastic guide. It was super easy to find her before our tour, and then she took a little over three hours to explain many of the wonders in the Louvre. She answered all of our questions, she took our interests into account, and she made the whole experience very enjoyable. I highly recommend her, and we will visit with her again when we have the chance.

Caroline was a wonderfully thorough and friendly tour guide. She was very educated on the various exhibits and provided detailed information that you could not find without extensive research. She was very comfortable around our children and fascinated them with her knowledge. She was able to engage them as well. It was a visit we will never forget for many reasons but most of all because of Caroline's expertise.
