Traveler Tips


  • "Because the Louvre is so crowded and has long lines to enter, its best to get a skip the line tour to take you around, and given that the museum is so massive, its really timesaving." See review
  • "We saw the Mona Lisa first , it's a quick glance so be ready, have a plan." See review
  • "The bottom line: Ask for Empress Josephine for your guide , you can't do any better." See review

It was Abby's first tour after Covid, but her memory hadn't suffered a bit. The meeting place was well chosen; it is Abby’s choice to lead small groups so the five of us really could steel every single word from her mouth. She is so knowledgeable and did not only tell us about the highlights we have seen but fed us with interesting background information. She teased our knowledge with some multiple choice questions and came up with surprising answers. The line to the Mona Lisa was relatively short because tourist were not yet overcrowding Paris. Thank you Abby for this interesting and also joyful experience.

Hi Cart! We are all so happy to be welcoming our guides and our guests back post-Covid - and thank you so much for choosing Walks. There definitely is an upshot in Europe this year of there being fewer crowds at some key sites, so it's a great time to visit. Abby is amazing and will be really delighted with your feedback. Thank you again!

The tour guide was warm kind and knowledgeable. We felt like we were having a good friend show us the best parts of the museum. And the history and stories that she shared behind each of the pieces made it that much more special.

Amazing tour with a very knowledgeable and personable guide, Suzanne. Company was very quick in responding when we were an hour ahead of time for our tour. We opted to stay on for another two hours and explore the Louve for ourselves! The fact that the tour was in English allowed us to make some great connections with other travellers as well. Very happy to have booked this tour and happily recommend WALKS tours to anyone who asks!

It was a very busy day at the Louvre but our guide did an excellent job of navigating the crowds. Her commentary was fun and informative. We especially enjoyed the extra tidbits she gave us about the various art we looked at and kept us entertained during our waiting in line, especially for the Mona Lisa. Another unique attribute is that she remembered almost everyone's name during the tour. Very impressive!

Guide was knowledgeable and accessible even though Louvre was crowded, would recommend this tour. Microphones that were supplied worked well, sometimes only just audible over noise but overall good.

From start to finish Adam was funny, engaging, personable and knowledgeable. It was a large group but he immediately memorized all our names and brought the art and artists to life. A month later and our 13 and 16 year old boys are still talking about him and have rated the Louvre visit as their favorite. I just can't say enough about Adam. If he ever decides to teach an online art history course, sign me up!!! #TeamAdamForever
