Great way to do Paris on your own - some museums not accurate

We just used these audioguides on a 3 day visit to Paris in January. They were a great addition to our trip that allowed us to see the important sights without having to pay for audioguides. We had a couple issues with the first part of the Louvre tour because the Greek Statues area was not in the same layout as the audioguide. Once we figured it out we were ok and the rest of the tour was very helpful. However the tour only covers one wing of the Louvre and there was much more to see. We also pretty much could not use the Orsay museum audioguide because much of the museum was under a large renovation and nothing was in the same places as the audioguide. After a lot of frustration trying to find things, we evenutally abandoned the guide and just perused the museum on our own. Otherwise the Versailles tour and the parts of the Historic Paris walk that we used were great and we plan on using the Italy guides on our trip this summer!

So fun

Love this. I listen from home when I wish I was in Paris :) I’ve learned a lot of interesting facts, and other things that I will remember for the next time I am in Paris.
