I wanted to write to you to give you my appreciation of the guide, Cyril, who accompanied us on our visit to the Louvre on May 4. During our wait to enter, he knew how to captivate young and old, with humor, everyone was interested, those who knew Greek mythology well as those who knew nothing about it. This dead time was exploited to the maximum by our guide and we thank him for it. No sigh or annoyance in the queue, it was a miracle. As an aside, we appreciated that Cyril specified that there were many versions of the Greek legends because our little specialist would not have failed to point this out. This precision was very important and very intelligently placed. Then the visit was carried out with the respect of the rhythm of the group and its important knowledge on the Greek mythology. Cyril knew how to captivate the children, to amuse them and to fascinate them with all that he showed. Even the parents got caught up in the words and the search for the statues. We had a great time as a family, funny, light, and interesting. Our visit would not have been the same without him. A big thank you to Cyril from all three of us! We will do it again.

Conferences adapted to young children or teenagers. Exciting speaker who puts himself within the reach of his young audience! Even the adults learned a lot! To be repeated with eyes closed!
