Star Star Star Star Star - Great experience at the Louvre
Written by Liza Yamazaki, on 27-05-2024

My 7-year-old son got to experience the Louvre on the theme of Ancient Egypt and he loved it (we did too!). Pauline was a great guide for the kids, captivating them for 1h30! We recommend it and we'll be sure to do it again next time we're in Paris.

we loved the visit to the Egypt section of the Louvre. The tour guide was able to help us find the meeting place. Suitable for ages 6 and up.

Star Star Star Star Star - very good tour, suitable for children
Written by Christine GARDEL, 10-03-2024

difficulties with the appointment, especially as we were not contacted by sms by the guide as planned. A lot of people in the passageway and a long wait (1h) to get in, which reduced the visit time before closing time.

No accompanying booklet, no deciphering of hieroglyphs, but a very good relationship with the children and a good dose of information, presented in a playful way. A much-appreciated experience.

Star Star Star Star Star - 30-minute tour over 1h30
Written by AC, 01-03-2024

The tour started 1h15 late, so we were unable to follow it in its entirety due to an important appointment after 30 minutes of the 1h30. Cause: fire alarm at the Louvre. Lack of commercial sense and understanding when I asked for partial compensation. I was told that this was not the problem of the organization, which would not reimburse me. It's expensive for a 30-minute conference. It's a pity, because the speakers are top quality.

Dear Madam, I am copying the feedback from our partner following your message: Madame, The visit took place in its entirety and it is true that it started late due to an alert at the Louvre. We have already spoken at length on the subject. It was perfectly possible for you to choose to take part in the entire visit and delay the start of your children's homework. We understand your choice to prioritize homework over the visit, but we cannot be held responsible for a fire alarm at the Louvre.

Great tour, very captivating and well-paced. Just one tiny remark: the headphones aren't suitable for all little ears, so we suggest different sizes if possible.

Written by Christine MOLLE, 14-02-2024

I highly recommend this tour, which appeals to adults and children alike. The speaker, Cyril, was brilliant, with an impressive verbal flow and top-notch organization. I was with a 10 year old who really enjoyed it, but the younger 6 year olds also participated a lot.

We enjoyed this family visit on a Sunday with two children (aged 6 and 9), and the guide/storyteller was very interesting and knew how to capture and hold the attention of young and old alike. We learned as much as the children did. Many thanks for this visit!

Super fun, original and rhythmic activity for children and parents. It was great for awakening them to knowledge of the world and history. The lecturer was super gentle and very educational with the children.

This format is ideal for family visits with children. Nathalie, our tour guide, was top-notch. She knew how to captivate her audience, young and old alike. And she knew how to adapt the ideal language and posture for children. The hour-and-a-half format was perfect. The on-site meeting at the start was also very well organized. I highly recommend the experience.

Star Star Star Star Star - Marie is a great guide!
Written by Barbara Dallez, 12-09-2023

It's really a great idea for introducing our children to art and history. Marie is very generous in her approach and it's very enjoyable. The only downside is that it goes a little too fast in each room, and we could imagine activities in the booklet that are a little more stimulating for everyone, as the older children in the group quickly get the better of the younger ones. Maybe make one booklet for the older children and another for the younger ones.

Star Star Star Star Star - Disappointing
Written by Florence BAROS, 21-08-2023

This Louvre event for children is far too expensive. 1h20 guided tour for 128 euros, two children and two adults for just the explanation of a few works.... The booking went well, but the day before we were due to leave we were informed that our activity could not take place (the blame was put on Le Louvre) and another activity was offered as a replacement on another day, so the activity schedule was changed.... Although the activity was fun and interesting for the children, the quality/price ratio was unacceptable!
