    We had the pleasure of taking two private skip-the-line tours with Babylon. Belen was our guide for the Louvre and she was a wealth of information, historical anecdotes, and insight. We walked away feeling that we not only got to see the Louvre, but also received an education in art and history. We also visited Musee d'Orsay with Liliya and it was another great tour filled insight that made art and museum come alive and deepen our appreciation of the pieces. We actually got our tour start time confused and ended up being half an hour late. Liliya patiently waited for us and did not cut out tour short, for which we are eternally grateful . Being able to freely interact with the guides allowed for a wonderful experience. Both of the guides were a pleasure and the company was very easy and flexible to work with. We recommend with no reservations.

    Fabulous--Lili brought the art to life. She expertly and comfortably explained the artwork with insight into its technique, historical perspective and humor. The size and scope of Louvre & even Orsay are intimidating--without a guide and small group, my visit would have been frustrating and stressful. It is a pricey tour, but definitely worth it.

    I was in Paris last week and had the most amazing LOUVRE MUSEUM: Skip The Line Private Guided Tour. We got to see the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Victory of Samothrace and many more pieces of art. The history of the building of the Louvre Museum is fascinating. After that, we took the MUSÉE D'ORSAY: Skip The Line Private Guided Tour where we saw Monet, Manet, Renoir, Van Gogh and a couple of artists that I never heard of before. We loved the Orsay museum since it was simple and colourful. Our private guide Darío did a great job. The next day we tackled THE HISTORY OF PARIS: Private Guided Tour - Notre-Dame to the Champs-Élysées. It’s, from my own experience, the best way to know what the city of Paris has to offer and to understand much better why things are the way the are. I highly recommend Babylon Tours, I booked directly from their website and the customer service was just perfect as well. Thank you and see you soon

    We had another great experience with Babylon. Dario took as to see how this two places connect. It's the best experience we've done in Paris so far! Loads of history and interlaced stories. Big names such as Monet, Manet, Van Gogh and Picasso.
