Veronica provided us with an informative and engaging tour of the Louvre. We were concerned about touring such an immense museum on our own and wasting precious time. Veronica's breadth of knowledge was such that she was able to bring our attention to the Louvre's highlights and provide us with a more in depth background on the artist and the history. We would highly recommend Veronica. I doubt our lasting impression of the Louvre would have been the same without her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so happy that you had a nice visit. It is a really gift to have clients that are so interested in Arts, history, etc. Thanks so much for your comment Veronica

Veronica was patient and the perfect teacher! We are older and a little slow--she found every elevator in the Louvre. She also gave us a tutorial on Metro use, and met us at our hotel. Incredibly knowledgeable on history and art, just fascinating!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your rating and words. It was a pleasure to work for you, very interested and pleasant to work for. Thanks again Veronica

A wonderful experience with an extremely knowledgeable guide. Veronica speaks perfect English and she brought to life the most important pieces of Art that you should see in the Louvre with the History of what went on during that time period. In addition, Veronica was most flexible in working with us on time changes for the tour. We were a group of 6 on a Viking Cruise which had to change locations to move further out from Paris due to French strikes on the Locks, and only one shuttle return back in PM.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comment. I'm glad that you enjoyed the visit. And I love this job, most of all when people are interested in art, history and that they were happy to do this Tour. I hope that you were in that shuttle !!!! Thanks again Veronica

Veronica was amazing. The museum is crazy busy and she took us to see the most popular works with great ease. Her knowledge was vast and brought many moments of enlightenment. Would recommend her for a tour. Can't imagine doing it by myself. Well worth the money.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for giving me your opinion, to make happy other people is the best we can do !!!!!

Veronica provided an excellent introductory tour of the Louvre. She moved us effortlessly though the exhibits. Her explanations were very informative and insightful. We learned how to view the exhibits through her eyes and through those of the artists. She provided background information as we moved through various eras. The pace was just right. She clearly has a passion for the Louvre as it stands. She did not overwhelm us - She provided us with a great morning.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comment, I hope that my explanations will permit you to appreciate the marvelous pieces of art that we can find in all museums in the world. Hope to see you again one day.

We visited the Louvre with Veronica as our guide. The Lourve is extreamly large and crowed on the date we visited, but she made expert work of helping us navigate all the high points. She also helped us skip the lines which saved us at least an hour or more. She was very knowledgeable, and provided a lot of info and insight that we could have easily missed without her. I have a family of 6 and i would not hesitate to use her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So nice to hear of you, I hope that you got back in good health, that I didn't tired you to much !!!!! Thanks so much for your comment.

Veronica was very knowledgeable and friendly. She did a great job not only showing the development of Impressionism as a movement, but also many other factors that influenced the artists involved. I would very much recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. But if I was good, as you say, this is because I had in front of me, people that were really interested and and with a lot of charm. I hope that your Tour in Normandy will be spectacular and that you will find the oysters I spoke to you about.

Veronica loves Paris! We had a 3+ hour tour of the Louvre with her. One of the reasons we opt for tour guides in these large museums is because we don't have to spend time looking at a map and trying to decide where to go next. Veronica is very familiar with the Louvre and she gave us a wonderful "highlight" tour that included the major works and collections. There is no way we would have been able to see everything we did with just a guidebook and a map.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thank for you comment, I'm happy that my visit interested you as I saw that you knew a lot about art. Hope to see you again one day. I wish you a very interesting sabbatic year !!! and if it is possible, with good weather but not to warm !!! Veronica

I cannot say enough positive things about Veronica. We first met her last year for a tour of Notre Dame and that tour was one we will never forget. Her scope of knowledge is amazing. In addition to showing us the highlights of the Louvre, we learned about French history, art and art appreciation; to look at art and begin to understand it. She is wonderful. When we returned to the Louvre a second time on our own, we actually used the many techniques she taught when looking at other pieces. Fabulous.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was also very happy to meet you again. I always remember our adventure running after the thiefs !!!!! I also would love to see you again and thanks for your nice words.

Veronica is totally professional She got us right into D'Orsay...straight into the Van Gogh special exhibit and proceeded to tell us all about Van Gogh and his illnesses and his style, brother Theo, and his wonderful it was to have the private collection paintings as they are usually not seen by the public. Then we had a 2hour art history lesson on impressionist and the painters of the movement. Wonderful...fabulous. we sure got our money's worth.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Again thanks. But you know, I think that when you have people interested, you feel so much better, so your work, job, is much easier and better. So all this is also thanks to all of you. I was a pleasure to meet you. Veronica

The Louvre is immense, and we could not have seen all that we did without Veronica. She is extremely knowledgeable about the museum itself and it's contents. She was able to successfully guide us through the museum without getting stuck in the crowds. We did feel at times that Veronica had her own itinerary - and opinions, and there was little flexibility for our interests or concerns.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh, I'm sorry if you felt that I impose my itinerary and I wasn't interested in your concerns, I really didn't realized that you felt like that. But what happens is that there are some themes and periods of art that we don't often do, so when people want to visit a certain part of the Louvre, that is not the ordinary visit, it is better to tell the guide before, as we can't remember the whole, and we have to look at ours notes.

Veronica was a fantastic guide for the Louvre tour!!! Not only did she show us and teach us so much about the many types of art that we saw, but also included the history of the Louvre itself. She really knows her way around which allowed us to see so many pieces of the collections. She also did a great job capturing the interests of our 13 year old boys, as they were never bored at this museum. We even went back after lunch to see more. We would highly recommend her tour to others. Worth the money!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, You know, you make me feel shy with all your comments ....... I hope that I shall be able to stay always the same and be happy to have clients as the ones I most of the time have, there is a real pleasure to work with people like you !!!!!!

Our group of 4 really enjoyed our private tour of the Louvre with Veronica. She was very knowledgeable about the art and showed us interesting ways to look at the paintings. She had a place to buy the tickets where there was no line so we went right in. I would definitely recommend this private tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well, Well, Well, It have been a pleasure to guide you. The problem is that when I have people in front of me that are interested in what I say, it is very difficult to stop !!!! Thanks Veronica
