Il treno partiva alle ore 08:30 dalla stazione di Campo Di Marte, a Firenze. Appena la sera prima avevo salutato mio fratello e finito di sistemare lo zaino da 65L per l'avventura che mi stava aspettando. Ero "pronto". La notte era passata velocemente... come se non avessi dormito. Io, ed i miei genitori, arriviamo in stazione alle 8 puntuali, attraversando Firenze in uno dei pochi (e violenti) temporali estivi.

Amazing tour guide Severin our female guide at Viator, took us on a 3 hour journey through the highlights of the museum, and we learned a lot of great history of the artists, the museum itself, Greak and Roman mythologies that you do not find in any tour guide. Her English was very, and she delivered her stories like an actress. Great experience!!
Our guide was excellent! She explained each portrait and sculpture. She even explained why Monna Lisa had her smile!
Booked a small group guided tour of the Louvre. Per instructions, arrived at the site 15 mins early. Guide arrived 15 mins late so we stood around for a half hour as other groups began their tours. Finished tour 15 mins early. Guide was nice but mentioned fairly regularly that France had “stolen” many of these works. Seemed to have a bit of bias in her descriptions.
Very interesting and a place for art lovers. The guide was very good.
Unfortunately we didn't get to see Napoleon's coronation due to renovations.
We were so glad that we took the skip the line tour. We would have hated to have to fight the crowds by ourselves. Our guide, Florence was extremely knowledgeable about the art and architecture of the Louvre and was able to navigate us to all of the main attractions. We could not have done it without her. Well worth the cost.
Beautiful experience - there was no other way I could have had such a wholesome experience in such a short duration.
We were unable to meet at the meeting point because of the heavy rain. We were unable to attend because of that and did our own tour at the museum with the self-guided devices one can rent for 5 euro which was extremely informative and we were free to look at whatever we desired. - We asked VIATOR for a refund $122 for 2 people since we were unable to wait in the heavy rain for the guide, however, they declined our request. The Louvre is great on your own and much more flexible. VIATOR's decline of a refund is POOR OPTICS for VIATOR.
Good tour without the lines, but it was very specific to only certain sections of the museum. The tour guide was also very knowledgeable and friendly..
Claire was such a great guide. I had so much fun touring the museum with her! She also made the tour personalized and took me to exhibits that were very interesting to me. She knew all the highlights of the museum and knew exactly where to go, and gave me some tips on which areas to explore once the tour was over based on my interests. Louvre is too massive, it is a good idea to get a guide to get you started. Without her I would have spent the whole day lost!
We had a terrible experience doing this tour, would not at all recommend it for anyone with little kids. The guide was too fast for families with kids to begin with that created a very stressful and overwhelming situation for me that someone took advantage of and stole my purse while I was over occupied while catching up to the guide with kids. Even after the incident happened, the guide was not at all empathetic, she didn’t care to say a few words of sympathy or compassion forget about mentioning anything about rescheduling the tour or anything of the sort. Upon contacting the tour (they never tried to get back to me by themselves nor did they care if were able to get any help with our situation) the only thing they said they could help out was rescheduling the tour, the only slot being available two days after which would be after our exit from Paris. The refund was totally out of question.
