Our tour with Alexandre could not have been better. Very informative and allowed us ample time to spend at the exhibits of most interest to us. I highly recommend him as a Louvre guide.

Was 2nd tour with Alex (Jan 2nd - entire family). (Also hired Alex in Sept w/ 1 son/friends for Louvre tour.) He met us at 2:30 pm at metro and took us all around the Marais to hidden places, then a fun wine/cheese dinner before heading to Louvre for 3 hour evening tour. We spent 7 1/2 hours with Alex and loved it! SO fun! He's a great tour guide, knows so much history, and charming and easy to spend time with. My 3 sons (16, 21 and 25) and my husband also loved this fascinating 2-part tour!

Alexandre is awesome. He was like one of the family. There were eight in our group and each of us felt like we were getting one on one attention. His knowledge of Paris and the sites ensured we saw everything we wanted to in the short time we were there. Our expectations were far exceeded.

We had an excellent tour with Alexandre. He has an excellent knowledge about his field , we visited Orsay , climbed to top of Notre Dame and a very informative tour of San Chappele . We also had a walking tour of Marais. He was every kind to our kids and kept them busy . His Knowledge of impressionist artists of Orsay was amazing as my 9 year old kid is doing research on the impressionist era for his school right now ! Highly recommend Alexandre.

Alexandre provided our family of 5 a terrific highlights experience despite surprise closures due to false fire alarm. We loved his passion for both the works and the sharing of the works. He gave us background, context and commentary, and especially, he connected with the young adults in our group. Alex turned "oh, art" into "ooooh, art is cool." Thanks, Alex!

Alexandre put together a custom 3-hour tour for a large group in a very short space of time, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive - his knowledge and insight was remarkable, and he's an absolutely delightful guide.

Educational and entertaining! It was my sister-in-law's first trip to the Louvre, the rest of us have been there several times. Alexandre's knowledge and manner made it come alive in his description of the works we viewed. This was not a rushed "see all you can as fast as you can" type tour. He was more than happy to accommodate specific preferences or spend more time discussing a particular piece. If you dread tours but still want to know more, spend a morning with Alexandre at the Louvre!

Alexandre was superb. The amount of knowledge he had way more than we could of asked for. He was fabulous to deal with when I booked him for our tour. He always responded back to me by email promptly and went above and beyond when I had questions about other tours. I can not say enough good things about Alexandre. My group of 6 adored him. Thank you so much!

Alexandre took us on the private half day tour of the Louvre. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the museum and the pieces of art we asked to see. He clearly has a passion for art and teaching. The Louvre is so large that is can be a little intimidating, but Alexandre's friendly manner made this a fantastic visit. I'd highly recommend this tour and Alexandre as a guide.

Alexandre was excellent on our tour of the Louvre. We recommend him very highly, and wish we would have also hired him for a tour of the Musee d'Orsay. Expansive knowledge, efficient, and pleasant to be with.

Date: Sep 5/18

Alex met us in early Sept at 6:30 pm on a Wed outside of the Louvre. (It is open till 9:45 pm on Wed). While outside Alex gave 10-15 minute history lesson about the Louvre and other important places in Paris and how they are architecturally and historically related. Fascinating stuff. Then we entered (BUY TIX ON-LINE) & Alex gave great overview tour starting at the foundation of Louvre. We saw highlights, but also learned so much about history of the art, beautiful building and how it all connects.

Alexandre was an absolute delight to tour with. He was unfailingly courteous, had an in-depth knowledge of all areas of the Louvre, and engaged us in understanding various art works. I walk with a cane, and he took extra care to make way for us in the crowds and to find us a place to sit when needed. We would never have understood so clearly what we were seeing without his expertise. If there were a ten star rating we would give it to Alexandre. Please book a tour with Alexandre if you have a choice.

Alex got us to everything we wanted to see and much more. He provided prospective that gave me a new view. Since I build Museums for a living this was refreshing and enlightening. He didn't lecture he coached, explained and created true dialogue. I would highly recommend him.

Alexandre went over and above for us. In fact, he surpassed our expectations in every way! For example, he prepared a delicious homemade picnic lunch for us, arranged for a friend to open up her shop just for us after hours, and even offered to mail some items home for us so we wouldn't have to carry them around throughout our trip! Can you imagine? Of course, Alexandre was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and personable. In short, I give him my very highest rating possible!

With this being our first time visiting the Louvre, we wanted to make sure we saw the main highlights of the museum. Our tour guile, Alexandre A., was phenomenal. You can really tell he loves art by the amount of details he provides for each piece. I highly recommend this tour for all age groups.

It was a rainy day and even though we were both late, Alexandre made up by spending almost an hour extra with us, patiently answering all the questions our kids posed to him. He was very knowledgeable and kept ours as well as our children's interest during our express highlights of the Louvre tour. Would highly recommend him!

Alexandre's terrific. On the tour was my 16 year old daughter and myself. It was her second visit and my first. Alexandre did a great job of connecting us to the history of the louve and its' progression over time. With 36,000 pieces of art in the museum, it is easy to get lost. He did a phenomenal job of helping us acclimate to the museum and understand the progression of art thru history (from 9,000 years ago to 19th century). Of course, we also saw the most cherished pieces. A cherished tour!

Alexandre informed us he is "very French" & the 2 most important things to a Frenchman are symmetry & perspective. Tour began with ancient artifacts from the Middle East & Egypt progressing through the ages & stages of art, culminating with Mona Lisa. I almost did not book the evening tour as it was expensive but we had a short time in Paris & I wanted to see as much as possible. Wishing now I had booked this gifted guide for our other tours of Versailles, Eiffel and Notre Dame.

Alexandre's express tour of the Louvre was PERFECT. The Louvre is large and can be overwhelming so having a guide enabled us to spend time learning about the art rather than trying to navigate ourselves. He is EXTREMELY knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter and really made learning about it fun and interesting for us. Highly, highly recommend Alexandre as a guide for your next tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Caitlin, i am very happy if i helped you to discover a place such as the Louvre it was a pleasure to guide you threw it. I wish you a pleasant stay in Paris during your parenthesis... See you Alexandre
