Great experience in Paris, especially if you're short on time!
Feb 2020
All practicalities was very smooth - meetup was easy, he had arranged tickets etc so from getting to the Louvre to getting inside didn't take many minutes. While inside, Julien was extremely knowledgeable and I don't know if there's anything at all Julien does not know about the louvre. He told us all about the building and it's history, history of the sculptures and paintings, how they got to the louvre, stories about its meanings as well as stories about the artists/sculptors. All the facts he could tell about everything really made the tour worth it. It would've taken us a lot longer to experience all that if we had been there on our own. Thank you Julien!

A great way to see the Louvre!
Feb 2020
This was definitely a highlight of our trip! We didn't have much time to go through the Louvre so we wanted to make it the best possible time and Emmanuelle was fantastic. She pointed out details we would have never noticed. We wished we had more time with her! Absolutely worth it.

Feb 2020 • Couples
Thank you very much for hosting us at the Louvre. Julien enhanced our
visit and made the whole experience so much more than it would've been
had we visited by ourselves. Julien is extremely friendly and his art
history knowledge is excellent, he knew exactly where to take us to
maximise the limited time we had, visiting all the main attractions
and a lot more besides. If we had more time I would have opted for the
longer guided tour. I highly recommend 'Withlocals' and Julien in
particular. Thank you. Hope to see you again!

A great night out at the Lourve
Jan 2020
We had a sensational evening at the Louvre with Emmanuelle! We were a
small group of seasoned museum goers and had been to the Louvre
previously. Emmanuelle focussed on selected pieces of the Louvre's
extensive collection, providing insights into individual items and
their histories. Her tour had a theme that unified works from
antiquity to the present. This was a great way to engage with an
extremely large museum and its very diverse collection without being
overwhelmed. As we progressed, Emmanuelle also gave us the history of
this fantastic building - an artwork in itself. Emmanuelle's knowledge
and approach to our tour was greatly appreciated and expanded our
knowledge of art, individual artworks and the Louvre itself. Highly
recommended. We will be seeking out Emmanuelle when next in Paris!

An Art adventure
Dec 2019 • Solo
I recently booked a private tour with Sophie to rediscover the Louvre. I have been several times to the Louvre but I wanted to go with someone who would also be highly knowledgeable and excited to talk about art history as we strolled through all the halls of this grand museum. My expectations were greatly met. We had a delightful time and I look forward to seeing her again.

Private Louvre tour
Dec 2019
What an amazing surprise to have such an amazing guide (Emmanuelle) to help us navigate the complex labyrinth of artwork and queues to get us into the Louvre! Emmanuelle's knowledge of art and history allowed us to truly appreciate the history, the thinking and indeed the mysteries of some of these amazing pieces. The 2.5 hrs disappeared as she spoke about some of the most amazing pieces of art found to date. The Mona Lisa as amazing a masterpiece it was, has been condemned to selfies by tourists who don't appreciate the background nor the history. Just a fleeting moment of having their photo taken with the Mona Lisa in the background . Indeed my highlight of the tour was the mystery and beauty surrounding some of the detailed sculptures by mystery craftsmen on the Island of Milos and the sculptures from Michelangelo ... thank you for making this experience one of the most memorable ones for us while in Paris!

Express Louvre tour
Jan 2020 • Couples
Emmanuelle was great! She gave us a lot of very interesting
information in a very short period of time. I forgot to specify that
my husband will be using a wheelchair so she had to adjust her regular
tour on the fly, since the bldg. elevators are far and hide. She did a
great job making that happened. We saw Mona Lisa , the Wind Victory ,
the crowd jewels in the Apollo room, magnificent, and the Venus del
Nilo. Even though we are not museum people I wish we would have chosen
a longer tour with her
