The Louvre is such an expansive place to tackle. If you want to see the highlights and get a great map of where to explore the museum book a tour with Uriel immediately. He was warm and easy to contact. He met me and my family in the afternoon and gave us a great 1 hour tour of all the most famous pieces of art in the louvre. He let us in with tickets without a wait and gave us a map to help us explore the rest of the museum after his tour was done. So many tours are too long or too detailed. Uriel does an excellent job of giving you what you NEED to see in the louvre and guiding you to where you want to go after the tour is over. When his tour is over, you are free to spend as long as you want exploring this beautiful location.
I am so glad I booked a walking tour with Anne on our first day of Paris. She gave us a wonderful overview of the layout of the city and most importantly showed us how to use/buy tickets for the Metro. She met us conveniently at the apartment we were staying at and explored our neighborhood of Bastille with us and took us on the metro to the charming neighborhood of Montmartre and took us to many cool look out points where we could see the whole city. Anne was warm, friendly, and super informative. If you have never been to Paris before definitely book her for your first day of exploring. After a tour with her you will be set on where else to go on your trip!
