I'm a huge fan of Ellen's tours. If you love history, architecture and want to learn something new about each sight you see, her tours are for you. They are full university-level lectures but still entertaining and gripping. Thank you, Ellen!

I enjoyed the Orangerie Museum more because it was not that crowded. But you can never underestimate the Louvre.

I regret I bought a tour without a ticket because I love when I have everything on my phone, this is minimum effort. But the tour is crazy interesting. I can recommend it.
