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.

TripAdvisor's Customer Reviews
Guide was marvelous. I could see he is passionate about arts and he kindled that fire in us.
All paintings and sculptures were explained with due introduction and explanation.
Our Guide was very well informed and talked us thru many historic facts of the Lourve and the art on display, the walk will be through a lot of people and one can never absorb all the details of all the displays, but the tour gives you a full view into the history of art from history
The taxi took us to the wrong place. Totally not their fault, however, when I contacted the company on the what’s up app as directed to let them know we would be 10 minutes late and to see where we could catch up with them at they never responded until the next day! They don’t provide your tickets so if you don’t go in with them you don’t get in.
When I repurchased our tickets much cheaper I might add even the workers at the Louvre had a negative comment about this company! They offered a price for both children and adult for an outrageous amount when children enter and enjoy the Louvre for free!!
They offered no refund of any sort nor an apology! Don’t waste your time with them. Buy your tickets early download the map and plan it yourself. It will save you time and money.
Zero communication from the group on where to meet beforehand. It turns out this isn’t an authorized tour group per the museum staff and we had to buy tickets inside and do our own tour. Don’t waste your time with these jokers.
Our tour guide for the Gregory was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and funny. We loved the little insights he told us about many of the famous pieces housed at the Louvre Museum.
This tour was a split review for my family. Our family of 3 liked and disliked different things. For a couple of us, the tour moved too slow. The tour guide chose to give a deep history into a few pieces instead of a quick history of several. I felt like we could have covered more pieces than we did. He did tell us at the beginning that we would only cover 15% of the Louvre and that we could leave the tour at anytime, just let him know. So maybe its on us for not doing that. I also feel like we could have started the tour at 8:30-8:45 instead of 9 because he took some (needed) time to discuss the plan of what we will do that day, get us inside the main area, let us use the restroom, etc. Our tour started at 9am, but we weren't inside the Louvre until 9:40. We also ended our tour with the Mona Lisa. I understand why he did this as he stated some might have already seen it and not care but that was a big reason we chose this tour. So I was very concerned we'd be in line for an hour if we didn't go see her until 11:45. However, it was only about a 15-20 min wait at 11:43 when we finally got in the room. And our experience may have been different had we had a different guide. For us it was a mix bag. We enjoyed parts of it but I feel like there was too much time spent on each piece. I think we could have moved thru more peices a bit faster. Instead of 15 min on each piece, spend 10 and we can bring in 5 more peices. For some it may not be enough time spent on each piece so it all about what you are wanting to get our of your tour.
We use a wheelchair and only saw they are excluding along with strollers from this tour. Next, our Uber was late and we did not arrive until 10 minutes after the tour group started. We proceeded to enter on our own and did a self-tour.
I see now why they exclude chairs and strollers. The Louvre basically has four floors of exhibits in three separate buildings(even though they appear as one. Each floor has half levels requiring a short flight of stairs, approximately 20 steps on average. It is a complex floor plan.
Those who can’t use steps spend a significant amount of time searching for lifts to take you to each sub level or other floor. They are not in logical locations making this a time consuming task. Louvre employees were great at providing assistance but the lifts were often away from the exhibits.
So, they are right in stating no wheelchair or strollers. There is no way they could wait while you search for your lift.
I requested a refund and was refused according to their policies which I fully understand.
Our Guide, Jean Luc, was wonderful: Friendly & Informative! The Louvre is enormous, and it cannot all be covered in one day... but we received a great overview, and many behind-the-scenes historical details!
We appreciate our guide. Excellent work showing us the most important things and emotional description of the scenery
Terry was a gracious and kind guide. Great deal of knowledge and polite to all. If you’re looking to go to the Louvre this I’d the trip you need. Perfect time and host.
