Star Star Star Star Star - Ideal for a short discovery tour
Written by Timothy Hirter, 05-06-2023

Very nice tour and good explanation from the guide, who was well-suited to children. Only downside...the meeting place is not well indicated!

Star Star Star Star Star - Great guide!

Bravo to the guide for the tour. Smiling, full of anecdotes, knowledge and patience, it's a real pleasure and game for children and adults alike! With pragmatism and derision, he manages the vagaries of the group, the delays, the problems, the rigidity of the Louvres staff, the hordes of tourists. Thank you, Cyril!

The only downside: the meeting point was not sufficiently explicit, we had trouble finding our guide - it would have been nice to send us a phone number to reach her ... thank you.

Star Star Star Star Star - Not for teenagers
Written by GERALDINE Létangletanf , on 25-05-2023

What I didn't like: the headphones were of poor quality, so we couldn't hear much of what the speaker was saying. The speaker didn't address my two teenagers at all and concentrated on the children.

Star Star Star Star Star - Interesting visit
Written by Sandrine PORTE, on 22-05-2023

Very interesting visit, explanations of the guide rich, simple, quite within the reach of children. The guide was ready to answer all the questions. A small drawback, my 8 year old son had a little trouble following the explanations in the audiophone only. He really had to be next to the guide and see her speak to understand everything.

Star Star Star Star Star - Very good experience
Written by Stéphanie Ramboasolo , on 22-05-2023

The children really enjoyed it (6, 10 and 12 years old). What we liked: the anecdotes and stories of the guide around each work (mythology, historical framework of each work, etc.) +the choice of works What we didn't like: the phase of gathering the families at the beginning which proved to be quite long (problem of identification of the passage richelieu for some) As well as the monopolization of the guide by only one child of the group. Point of vigilance on the attention paid to the whole public. To be recommended.

You can't hear the microphone very well and the person is a bit too fast

This visit is great to start the Louvre with the kids. The tour is efficient and exciting, not too long, not too short. The guide mixes the level of information to capture the attention of different ages of children and even adults.

Family visits in Paris

Practical information


Q Great tour! The guide is very much on the level of the children. The children were very interested and so were the adults. To be repeated, to be recommended to discover the Louvre without tiring the children.
