Hugo was a fabulous guide. He was perfectly fluent in English. Clearly, art is his life passion. He was equally wonderful with my elderly mother and my 13 year old nephew. He has a gift for teaching and was profoundly educational while keeping the tour light and fun. We could not have imagined having a better guide at the Louvre. We highly recommend Hugo. He was one of the best guides we've ever had.

Had a wonderful tour of the Louvre with Hugo. He definitely knows his stuff and it would have been an entirely wasted day without him. He was engaging and great with my 10 year old son. Was definitely a highlight of our Paris trip. Can't recommend Hugo enough if you want to make the most out of your time at the Louvre.

Hugo was highly qualified, extremely well informed, and tailor-made the tour to our interests. He was also extremely personable, friendly and funny. Of the over 15 ToursByLocals tours we’ve taken all over the world, this may have been the best. Our highest recommendation.

Hugo was a fantastic guide! He was recommended by a friend of mine and did not disappoint! Hugo led us on a guided tour of the Louvre. My family does not have a background in art and he made it come alive. He also let us set the pace. We finished his usual tour in less time than typical and he gave us the option of being done or seeing more. So we let him show us what he thought we should see and we experienced so much more than we had hoped!

A fantastic tour of the Lourve with Hugo. He is very nice, engaging, insightful and so knowledgeable without being pretentious. It was like being invited into someone's home and having them share their fantastic art collection with you, explaining why they love the pieces they have collected. Exactly what I had hoped for when booking a tour with a doctorate student in art history who has worked at the Lourve. Exceeded my expectations in every way. Thanks Hugo!
Thank you Hugo for such a great and informative tour. Everyone in our group of six enjoyed the background stories you provided on the 'Masterpieces of the Louvre' and even though most of us had been before, our experience of the great museum - both the building itself and the art pieces- was incredibly enhanced. Thank you so much, it was a pleasure spending the morning with you!!

Hugo's knowledge is excellent. However, we had booked a 2-1/2 hour, but we were very surprised when he ended it after 1-1/2 hours. To see anything significant in the Louvre is challenging in the time originally scheduled, but more so when our tour ended so early.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am a PHD candidate and doing tours to pay my studies. I am very passionate about my job and I love showing the Louvre, which is like my 2nd home.It was a last minute reservation and I managed to get tickets despite the strike.It was raining and I came earlier for you not to get wet.Even though all lockers were taken, I offered you to put your umbrellas in my bag.We entered the museum in a heartbeat! Tour was 2h because you asked me not to see the highlights,you should have told me you wanted to see more

We had an awesome tour with Hugo. He was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and familiar with the museum layout and treasures. One of our best tours while in Paris!
Hugo's tour of the Louvre was fantastic. He has such a passion and in depth knowledge of the Louvre and everything in it. His detailed historical knowledge of the paintings, sculptures and artifacts is amazing. I would definitely recommend Hugo.

We wanted to see the French (Sully) wing of the Louvre. Hugo led us thru the wing room by room with full explanations as we progressed. We had the Louvre to ourselves on this late Saturday morning. Hugo is a great resource and time saver if you are planning to visit the Louvre

Mark ShapiroUnited States
Hugo gave us a great tour of the Louvre for about 2 hours. He is a PhD student in art and is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his field. He took us to the masterpieces and to other areas of the museum that we had interest in. In all cases he provided great stories and background on the art and artists. We left saying how much more we enjoyed the visit because of his tour. Highly recommend.
