The tour started 45 minutes late and our guide seemed frazzled. He did give us a lot of information when the equipment actually worked but the timing, the lack of coordination on where we enter the Louvre, we could have been in and gotten a headset ourselves. Not sure this tour saved us any time or provided any additional info and insight. We did 5 tours through Viator with great success, 4 out of 5 were well worth it, unfortunately this was not.

Poor administration

Couldn’t find your guide as the meeting place was broad with no contact number provided. Couldn’t contact guide and this was a large crowded area. Poor arrangement by Viator. If not for another service not associated with Viator that we paid for the second time we Wolff have missed this venue, and this guide was wonderful and understanding. Again it is total disrespect that Viator expects a meeting to be uneventfull in a large crowded area without any contact info. Poor administration.

Please refund asap.
