Star Star Star Star Star –  Palpitant
Écrit par Isa , le 28-11-2023

Notre guide Sonia a réussi à maintenir l’intérêt des enfants (et des parents) pendant 1h30, en donnant des informations très simples, accessibles aux plus jeunes et d’autres plus détaillées, avec des anecdotes vraiment palpitantes. Je regrette la partie explicative sur la statue de l’Hermaphrodite avec des commentaires sur le genre, ce n’est pas le lieu pour cela, les enfants sont trop jeunes et d’ailleurs ils n’ont pas accroché.

I highly recommend the guided tour for families. Astrid the guide adapted the explanations to the children's ages. She used guessing games to make the visit more interactive with us. The works we saw were varied. At the start of the tour, Astrid asked us what we wanted to see. This enabled her to tailor the tour to our requests. The organization of the visit (ticket office, short queue entrance, audiophone, etc.) was also a plus for us as tourists.

The plusses: punctuality, clear information on safety and the organization of the visit, the quality of the information provided, the pedagogy and the quality of our interactions with the guide (Cyril), we went a little over schedule.

Star Star Star Star Star - to discover
Written by Anne MASSAUX, 02-10-2023

Well organized, very precise and a very professional guide, clear and pleasant to follow. The beginning of the tour, on the primitive foundations of the Louvre, was less exciting for children, it seems to me. An essential introduction, no doubt, but a shorter one wouldn't be a bad thing. My grandson, aged 11, didn't think the tour was well suited to children younger than 7/9, whereas he understood the guide very well, asked her (too many) questions and still wanted to know more. However, bravo to the guide who was a great listener and answered questions at a child's level. A great experience, and one that will make you want to explore the Louvre even more.

I enjoyed the guided tour because the guide interacted with the children, asking them questions. The fact that we had audioguides meant we could hear her clearly.

Written by Noémie, 13-09-2023

Very interesting visit for the whole family, the guide kept our children (and adults) captivated! The only downside was the location of the RV at the start. I was a bit worried about missing the tour, since the Passage Richelieu is rather long, with lots of traffic! I asked passing families and other guides... and finally found people who were doing the same tour; they received a text describing the guide! I never got that text (maybe because we don't live in France, so we don't have a French number? Maybe because I didn't book directly with Sophie and Ludo). Maybe the guides should have a sign with them indicating their tour/company? Otherwise, it was a great tour!

We had a great guide, but unfortunately the operator had forgotten his microphone and our headsets, so visiting the Louvre in these conditions was a real feat! The guide wasn't helped by the people present that day, but it's a shame that no solution could be found for her, given the number of audio guides available to the public. After the navy, our guide was super passionate and very gentle with the children.

Written by francine Letellier, 30-07-2023

What I didn't like was not Marine, who taught us a lot, but the Louvre, which didn't allow us to get close to the Mona Lisa, the staff having ordered us to leave the room when we hadn't even been able to face the painting; I think that's scandalous; As for the rest, we were able to appreciate the works chosen by Marine and some of her favorites. It's an activity I'll certainly be doing again when my next grandson is 7. Thank you for this initiative

Bad experience: the guide didn't give us any instructions on how to regroup after the bags had been secured. As a result, we didn't know where she had gone, so we searched EVERYWHERE under the pyramid, but came up empty. She did her tour without a name, didn't even call us, nothing. Not satisfied.

Star Star Star Star Star - Our untraceable guide to safety
Written by VALERIE A., on 30-06-2023

Meeting point with the guide at the indicated place and time for around twenty people, including children of course. No distinctive signs such as caps, badges or name stickers were provided. After passing through the security checkpoint (barely a "follow me, let's go"), she passed in front, waiting for no one, and after descending the escalators to the bottom of the pyramid, it was impossible to find our guide. She disappeared with part of the group. Me and another part of the group were looking for stress and heat... phone unreachable. Several messages left in vain. Ad hoc solution: join the next group for an unrelated visit. But we'd come a long way for the Louvre, so we did it anyway. When I think back on it, they really don't care about their customers.

Dear Madam Your guide was present at your appointment with an orange shopping bag as indicated on your tickets. You're entering the Louvre with a group, so it's normal to be careful not to lose your guide... Unreachable by phone? We've talked on the phone and done everything we can to help you reach your guide. We offered you the chance to join another group (so we had to buy tickets to the Louvre for you) so that you could join another tour and not lose everything. We don't understand your harsh assessment when our hotline responded to you and found an alternative solution to make your visit a success. Kind regards

Point of vigilance on the attention paid to the whole public. To be recommended.
