Tour: #307272, Louvre and Marais private tour, Paris, Île-de-France, France    
Date: Jul 27/18

We scheduled a tour of the Louvre and the Marais with Sara and we could not have been happier. We had a 13 year old with not the longest attention span. We decided on visiting the Louvre for only 2 hours and then getting the history of the Marais. We were shown the highlights of the Louvre and got wonderful explanations. Our 13 year old was interested most of the time and the adults loved it. The Marais tour was also informative and fun for our teen. We could not have been happier.

Just had my first tour of Paris and Sara did an excellent catering the tour to my interest. Not only is she knowledgeable of the history, art and architecture, but she is also great company. Sara was extremely helpful with simple advise like restaurants, shopping, etc. We tried a lot of her suggestions and they were all home runs. Highly recommend using Sara if you are considering a tour in Paris.

Sara is fabulous, her masters training at the Louvre provides such fabulous detail. Her knowledge is tremendous & her fluid walk through the Louvre allowed us to see such a huge amount of art so comfortably. My husband & I were not exhausted when the 3+ hours ended. Also, she incorporated knowledge we had learned from other national galleries to what was at the Louvre. Next trip to Paris I will hire her again. I also felt we learned so much on this tour, as it was only my husband, Sara & me!

We had a fantastic time and learned so much. Our tour really helped to organize and see things we would have other wise missed. My husband has arthritis and had some unexpected issues with his feet. Sara was very accommodating and kind in helping him out. We enjoyed her knowledge and would definitely recommend her.

Sara is your guide for the Louvre-very knowledgeable and engaging; knows her way around the museum. Impossible to see all in 3 hrs but she covers the highlights of the museum. We even saw Napoleon III's apartment tucked away upstairs. You need an experienced guide to see as much of the Louvre as possible. This was our 2nd tour with Sara and I highly recommend her. She is very flexible and will make sure your experience is memorable.

Sara did a great job showing us the highlights during a short tour. We were able to maneuver quickly and see much more than we could have on our own. Her insight into art and French history was interesting and presented in an interesting manner. We would recommend this tour to anyone who has limited time and wants to see the more important pieces.

We (family of 3) took the Louvre tour with Sara this April. She was very easy to talk to and the process of finalizing the tour and arranging the meet point etc was very easy. Her directions to reach Louvre was spot on and we started the tour as planned. Our son was 12, so she was very accommodating and customized it so he would not be bored. We had a great time at Louvre! She is super friendly and very helpful!

Just a tremendous visit. An extremely knowledgable guide who gave us a perfect visit to the Louvre. The Louvre is, of course, overwhelming, but she made it accessible to both the older and younger group members. We could have listened to her forever. A great guide!

Sara, an art historian, gave a wonderful, detailed, tour of the Louvre. There is no way we could have covered the masterpieces by ourselves. We were 3 adults and 3 teenagers. Sara led us past the lines and gave us up close and inside details of the paintings and sculptures. A great way to spend a morning! I highly recommend Sara.

The Masterpieces tour with Sara was Fantastic! She moved us through the museum at a good pace (not too fast) to see all the masterpieces and provided history and details about the art that was amazing. Worth every penny! We will do another tour with Sara next time we are in Paris.

Sara is a wonderful guide, full of information and good stories. She has a set route through the museum, which covers the origins of the structure itself and yet also the "major works" of the museum. This tour even kept my teenagers interested, which is quite a feat in a big museum. If you desire to see something in particular, you will need to speak up and let her know. Otherwise, do her regular tour—you won't be disappointed.

Sara did an amazing job ensuring that my elderly and mobility impaired parents had accessibility to every corner of the Louvre. She is impressive wealth of knowledge on a variety of genres of art and history that accompanied a great many works. We loved her tour so much, we booked her agin for the next day for the Paris Highlights Tour. I could not put a price tag on how much she enriched our visit and how accommodating she was to us.

An amazing experience! Sara's tour was a perfect combination of history and art. The Louvre is overwhelming to the novice - Sara used a dozen or so masterpieces to create a solid foundation and a real desire to return for more.

We loved our tour with Sara. It wasn't our first time at the Louvre. Several of us had bee to the Louvre many times. But this was our first time doing a tour of the Louvre. We wanted someone who was an expert tour guide. We found that with Sara. We learned so many interesting facts from her. Do not hesitate to do any tours that she offers. You will not be disappointed.

Sara was a great choice to guide us around the Louvre. She met us on time at the Hotel and helped us easily negotiate the Metro to the Louvre. Skipping the lineup was a big help and starting with some of the early history of the Louvre gave it great context. There were big crowds but she made sure we were not lost amongst them and swiftly guided us to some of the more important exhibits and paintings including making sure we had a great view of the Mona Lisa. Kept us moving without rushing us. Great!

Sara was an incredible tour guide! She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, easy to understand, went at a good pace, was good with our four young children and engaged them. Sara was also very flexible in that we thought we purchased ahead of the line tickets but discovered we did not. The entrance line was quite long and she offered to skip her lunch to finish our tour if we needed. We would recommend her and would love to have her again in future visits to the Louvre!

We (family of four with two teenagers) had a memorable tour with Sara. She is a real expert, and combines this with an interesting way of discussing the chosen exhibits. Rather than rush through too much in this massive and busy place, she covered selected parts in depth which was much more enjoyable and engaging - indeed to retain the willing attention of the two teenagers throughout was a feat in itself! We thoroughly recommend this tour with Sara.
