No difficulties whatsoever, either at the time of booking or on site. The weather was very (very, very) hot, so our guide made sure everyone found a place in the shade at every station on the tour. Our two 9-year-old granddaughters (who are big fans of mythology at the moment) were enthralled. A real success that we've since warmly recommended...and we're ready to call on your services again for our next escapade.

Well done to Cyril, who led the children's troupe through the discovery of mythology as they explored the park's artworks and statues. We were more than satisfied with this sunny, cultural afternoon in the Luxembourg Gardens.

Cyril captivated youngsters, teenagers (12 years old) and adults alike with his anecdotes and intrigues to find the sculptures in the garden. He was passionate and fascinating! I RECOMMEND !!!

Very well organized (that counts) and above all a very good guide... Cyril was very motivating for the children and knew how to pass on his knowledge (which is substantial) without putting aside the fun part of the visit. In a nutshell. My son and I had a great time. I'd definitely recommend it.

Star Star Star Star Star - the heroes of mythology
Written by odette Guenault, 01-09-2023

The presenter knows her subject very well. My only complaint is that she should have occasionally silenced the 2 boys aged 10/11 who interrupted her purely for the sake of interrupting. My eldest granddaughter, who just turned 12 and is entering 4th grade, wanted to reply, but was only able to do so once. The youngest, soon to be 9, had a lesson or 2 on mythology and couldn't answer. Other children would have liked to. My eldest was very annoyed Yes, I had a hard time signing up: I had signed up very well for theTuileries and 10 minutes later I made a mistake for Luxembourg. and it was really well explained to me, I was on the bus at 1pm++stress obviously I'm no good with computers but if they'd explained it to me as well the next day... I was a little stressed inside when I arrived.

Star Star Star Star Star - An excellent performance by the day's speaker, who kept the children and accompanying adults interested.

Guided family tour for adults and children alike, but not too young (from 9/10 years old, as it's part of the 6th grade curriculum). A guide who knows how to interest children.

I thoroughly recommend it for all children. From 5 years old if passionate about mythology ) you need to be able to keep your attention for 2 hours and walk a bit ) and everyone from 7 years old. Even as an adult, I enjoyed it.

Star Star Star Star Star - Very interesting and fun, but the child must have some knowledge of Greek or Roman mythology.

I made a mistake with the date... Which I realized 5 minutes later. As a grandmother with a small pension, I reported it immediately... kindly and apologetically. But hey...there's no way I'm going to make a mistake....l

Practical information


A belated message to thank you for this wonderful afternoon spent in Cyril's company! He's a terrific speaker, and his explanations are really top-notch, while remaining accessible to the younger ones! Which is often a tour de force. I don't think I'm wrong in saying that we parents had a great time wandering around these gardens, which we also enjoyed (re)discovering ... I'll take the liberty of sending you a photo of the little participants (from the back 😉 ) enthralled!

Madam, Sir, We thank you for this beautiful visit program. Thank you to Cyril for his pedagogy and the quality of his exchanges with the children. Could you give me the list of the words of the skull? We were unable to find them all when we got home. Wishing you a good evening. Sincerely Audrey
