It was a fabulous tour! David is a very passionate and gracious guide, who gave us a great overview of the highlights and a lot of very appreciated detailed information on history and background of the museum, artists and exhibits. He is a total professionalist in historic art. The next time we will visit the Louvre we would love to have another tour with him. Many thanks again!

Exciting visit. The guide was able to show us the most interesting works and provide us with details and anecdotes allowing a better reading of these masterpieces. An hour and a half is a bit fair to really appreciate this absolutely magnificent museum, but it makes you want to come back to visit other wings. Very professional guide! Really recommend.

Well-planned tour with a well-informed and FUNNY guide!

Damien met us promptly at the appointed spot, knew a way to avoid lines, talked about the hisyof the building itself, which we had requested, then led us to visitor favorites and also to what seemed to be some of his preferred highlights. His discourse was amusing, highly informative and informed. We had asked for a shorter tour (an hour and a half) in deference to the youngest member of our group. He was so passionate about the art, could have gone on for much longer, it was clear. We all agreed that we acquired some knowledge of the museum and its contents in a way different from/ perhaps not possible through a guide book or even an audio guide. Highly recommended!
