About the tour

It is surely the hidden gem of the Louvre, a gallery that served as a model to build the hall of mirrors of Versailles, the most beautiful diamonds and royal and imperial crowns, in a single space. It is the history of France that is written here. If you want to discover what the word "splendor" means, then come to this visit!

Meet Patrick Herpe

Patrick Herpe

Patrick isn't one to shy away from travel and adventure. "I was lucky enough to travel the world with my job, discover different cultures, and meet incredible people!" he says, after having explored multiple cities across Europe and Asia. On his tours, you may catch more than a surprise or two about Paris. "In fact, it is an everyday experience. I'm a native Parisian, but every day, I continue to discover new things, new secrets about Paris. It's a never-ending story," he laughs. It was his love for Paris that led him to become a guide. "I'm a father and a teacher, and I realized that my passion was to share my knowledge, so I decided to be a guide about one of my passion: Paris!" Patrick chips in. "I enjoy sharing the love and passion I have for my own city, Paris. Its monuments, its history, its gastronomy, its culture, and all of its little secrets. I can't wait to share all of these with you!" "At the end of my tour I always give a virtual bise - two in fact being a good Parisian!" he laughs.

Great tour of the Apollo Gallery and crown jewels. Patrick even took time to "walk the ceiling" so we could see depictions of the seasons, months and signs of the Zodiac plus the tapestry portraits. Stunning!

Had to miss this one. Do you plan to include this area again?

Wow!!! Patrick really gave us a VIP trip here to see some real "hidden gems" of France. Such a unassuming entrance hall, it was quite a shock when we found ourselves led into an Aladdin's Cave of beauty in every corner and every wall and every display case. What a privilege to see so many works of art and beautiful jewels in one place.

What an amazing tour!!! Could have easily spent at least 90 minutes in there. Just beautiful. Patrick is so knowledgeable and has an easy manner about him which makes touring fun.
