On the days of week I am available or busy according to the seasons. During the academic year (October to May) I am teaching in university. However, in my company MSP SAS we have a dozen guides who all fulfil the guidelines of quality and expertise I put on myself and my wife Kristina with whom I manage the company. Our guides a available each day of the week.
The walking tour covers an itinerary of about four km on a flat area. You don't need to be in any sporty shape for doing it, but we advise to wear comfortable walking shoes, to bring an umbrella and, especially in summer, a bottle of water.
The tour starts beginning with two participants.
We had a great time with Christian who managed to show us the Louvre and its highlights in a very limited time. He gave us a perfect overview of the museum and showed us all the highlights. He had very interesting stories to tell and we enjoyed the time with him. He was very flexible and responded to our requests. Thank you Christian for some wonderfull insights!
Thank you for your great review. It was a pleasure for me to show you the Louvre and some of its treasures. Hope to see you back in Paris soon! Christian
