Tour: Leonardo da Vinci Louvre, Paris, Île-de-France, France
Date: Feb 13/20

Catherine provided a wonderful tour of the Leonardo da Vinci exhibit at the Louvre. She took the time to "prep" me with a short talk before entering the exhibit and she gave me a few things to read after. Catherine also paced my viewing of the exhibit very well. She pointed out a few pieces in a room and then left me to view things on my own before proceeding. It was very crowded and not easy to see everything. I highly recommend Catherine as your private tour guide!

Best guide and best tour of the Louvre! We took the evening tour and we had the Mona Lisa practically to ourselves. There were no crowds and we actually got to enjoy this magnificent museum. The evening is the way to go. But I really cannot say enough about Catherine. She brought history to life for us. My only regret is not taking a longer tour. We definitely will be back. Thank you!

This is a five star review! The guide was just wonderful and the tour was very informative. We could not have asked for a better guide or better tour! We learned so much and we would have been lost in the museum without our guide. Thank you for making this experience one to remember. We feel like we had a semester of art history in one afternoon

This was our first time to Paris and we were fortunate to have Catherine guide us through the Louvre. The knowledge she possesses about art, art history and the Louvre is exceptional. Couple that with her wonderful personality and you have an unforgettable learning experience. We can't thank you enough for our time together Catherine.

If you're a lover of art or would simply prefer a live guide rather than a mere audio guide in exploring the intricate labyrinth of the Louvre Museum then you'll not regret joining this tour. Catherine is very knowledgeable being a painter herself. She speaks clearly but somehow in a relax manner making you at ease with her presentation. We totally enjoyed the tour as well as the stories and education of each period of history and how it affects the world of art as a whole.

This was an amazing experience. Katherine was knowledgeable and knew the Louvre inside out. We got a history lesson, an art lesson, a history of the Louvre lesson, a guided tour, and enthusiastic guidance around the crowds. It was apparent from the start that Katherine loves the Louvre and all the pieces contained therein. It was an amazing experience and I will definitely be back for another tour and will probably be bringing friends and family.

Catherine had fascinating stories and her explainations about art theory and history were interesting and have led us to continue on our desire to know more by reading on our own. She inspired us. She was sensitive to our interests and answered all our questions completely. I recommend this tour.

Catherine is a real art expert. We learned so much about art appreciation and composition. An unexpected plus. She knows all the ins and outs of getting around the museum with effective ease and staying on point. We received wireless ear sets so we could hear everything she was saying among the crowds. That was perfect! Very willing to customize tour to your focus and interest while really unveiling her view on favorite art pieces. We appreciated her tour very much and give her a gold medal as a guide.

Catherine is very friendly and has a true love of art. Was a fast paced art history lesson as we viewed the amazing paintings. Really worth the money as we are certain we would never have understood or found the artworks we wanted to see.

Catherine did an amazing job for our family, and kept our 12 and 14 year olds engaged throughout the tour. We all felt like we learned a lot, saw much more than expected, truly walked away with a greater appreciation for the history of art. I cannot imagine going to the Louvre without her. She was a highlight of our time in Paris and would rebook a tour with her in an instant.

If you go to Paris, don't miss the Louvre, and DON'T GO TO THE LOUVRE WITHOUT CATHERINE! As an accomplished artist herself, her enthusiasm and passion combined with her knowledge of art history shined through this highly educational tour of the most impressive collection of art in the world. Catherine was an excellent communicator, conveying a semester's worth of art history in a captivating two and a half hours. Plus, as a highly experienced Louvre tour guide, she is unparalleled in efficiently

Improved in just three hours! We had the exciting and humbling experience of drawing in the Louvre. Catherine's teaching was tremendously helpful and encouraging. She has studied under notable artists and her talent shines through her amazing gift of teaching. My approach to drawing has been transformed and am so grateful for the privilege of being taught by Catherine.

Very knowledgeable and energetic guide. Catherine offered excellent education on the Louvre and art history. Negotiating the Louvre on ones own seems very difficult in face of the crush of the crowd and the complexity of the museum. Well worth the fee. We learned a lot.

5 out of 5 stars Catherine certainly deserves a 5 star rating. She really paid attention when I emailed her our goals for the tour and far exceeded every one. She also introduced us to some of her favorite works; one which turned out to be our favorite, too. What a pleasure. I highly recommend seeing the Louvre with Catherine. Carolyn

Awesome!! Our recent trip to Paris included a 3 1/2 tour with Catherine. She is as delightful as she is knowledge. I have had many private tour guides and can honestly say Catherine has been one of the best. I had an 8 hour tour of the Louvre two years ago and did not come away with the understanding I did this time. Catherines accolades and education come through clearly in her gift of teaching. A couple of us also had the amazing opportunity to have a drawing lesson with her in the Louvre. Book her!

Catherine (Kate) is a fabulous guide. She knows her way around the Louvre, which helps immensely. She accommodated our specific interests and still was able to guide us through a carefully orchestrated and thoroughly interesting tour. Most importantly, Kate's art knowledge and the way she presents the information was captivating. We loved everything about this experience. Thanks Kate!
