Brahma the creator, Shiva multitasking, Vishnu and its avatars, Ganesh with elephant head... a whole world of fantastic creatures to tame.

Let's go for a an initiatory journey into the Hindu pantheon through different sculptures to find thanks to the clues of our guide, your children will discover the great Hindu gods, their powers and their attributes.

The visit begins with a presentation of the founding myths and the story of several legendssome a little more disgusting than others [obviously the ones children prefer ]. Our guide will then explain the two main religions that originated on the Indian continent and are still practiced in 21st century Asia: Hinduism then Buddhism.

Awakened to a way of thinking so different from ours, children are literally taken on board during this playful discovery tour in the "India and the Indianized world" section of the museum Guimet.

A very nice and fun guided tour with Cyril from Ludo&Sophie on the theme "Magical Journey to the Land of Dragons"! I recommend it, it was great!

Very well organized guided tour. Easy to find the guide, started on time. Cyril kept the children's attention throughout the session, alternating between storytelling, search and find, calligraphy... even the adults learned a lot. Congratulations on your infectious passion! However, a little long for the younger children (6/7 years old).

The guide had a good feeling with the group of children, and knew how to interest them...I wasn't expecting this approach in relation to the proposed theme, I found the subject a little difficult, and the visit a little long for children (2 hours), but everything went well. My granddaughter (in CE2) liked it....I regret, however, that I had to pay for both the visit AND the museum entrance fee....

An enriching, interactive tour that my 8- and 14-year-olds really enjoyed. The guide was simply brilliant, and we didn't see the hour and a half go by! I recommend it, especially for children aged 7 to 10.

My 9-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son really enjoyed the visit. All three of us learned a lot about Hinduism. Many thanks to our guide Cyril, who knows how to captivate young and old alike.

I found the visit a little boring and not suitable for children of cp and ce1. Suitable for ce2 and above I think... This tour isn't about dragons, but it does take us to China, to tell us some stories. I found the visit disappointing... it's a shame! We did learn a few things, though, which is always good culturally!
