    Traveller Tips

    Going in the evening meant that parts of the Louvre were less crowded and more quiet, which was good for one our of family members with sensory issues.
    I highly recommend taking this tour, especially if you have never been to this most delicious museum!
    Highly recommended especially if you're not sure if you really like museums.

    Excellent Guided Tour
    Jillian_L, Mar 2023
    Our tour guide was fantastic. They were patient with out metro delay and had great communication. Highly recommend a private tour to get the most out of your visit.
    Glad to have had a tour

    There weren't enough people booked for my first tour so they cancelled, luckily I was available to join the tour the next day. The tour itself was good, but only about 90 minutes inside the Louvre. Guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, also open to suggestion and considerate of group interests. Be prepared to ask any questions you have about the main works and plan to see any collections outside of the most famous pieces on your own after (you're free to stay as long as you like) because the museum is HUGE and no tour can show it all.
    Perfect Family Tour

    Guide’s English was excellent, hit the high points of the museum, perfect tour for our family of 5, felt we had a thorough visit of the Louvre.
    Fantastic Louvre tour
    Mark_M, Jan 2023
    The tour was more than seeing the big draws, learnt about the Louvre and saw some really interesting exhibits on our 2 hrs tour
    Perfect guided short tour
    Jonathan_B, Jan 2023
    We booked the tour the night before, only having a small window of time between other stuff we had booked, which this tour fit into. So happy it was a small group tour, only us and another couple. Our guide was fantastic and took notice when we were checking something out that he hadn't talked about and took time to give us more details. He even gave us suggestions on where to go next in the Louvre at the end of the tour based on what he saw us taking the most interest in. This was a great intro to the Louvre and we got to see the popular spots efficiently, no need to wander around to try and find the Mona Lisa or other famous pieces.

    Anna Marie went above and beyond to get us all into the museum and was incredibly knowledgeable!!!!!
    Perfect way to visit the Louvre.

    Florian was a fantastic tour guide. He was very entertaining friendly and informative. We covered the most important art works without rushing.

    Krista_C, Dec 2022
    I'd hired a private tour guide for the Louvre two years ago and our semi-private group tour (which turned out to be just our family of five) through Viator was better! I was very pleasantly suprised and would recomment.

    The small tour was a great way to get introduced to the grand Louvre. Florian was very knowledgeable about the pieces we visited as well as the history of the museum itself. Only complaint is I wish it were longer!
    Weekend in Paris
    Omotayo_A, Nov 2022
    After quite a stressful week, Taiwo and I spent the day at the Louvre. We got to take in and appreciate some rich french history, architecture and art. It was an immensely pleasurable experience.
    Santa_R, Nov 2022
    our guide was excellent ,we saw the most relevant pieces of art ,we have a great experience ,no lines ,thanks
    Best tour ever!
    Jennifer_A, Nov 2022
    Our guide was amazing! She taught us so much about the history of the building and the history of the antiquities collections of Greek and Roman sculptures and Renaissance painters. She was extremely knowledgeable and just adorable. The Lourve is overwhelming and being in such a small group with such an engaging guide who was a natural storyteller made all the difference.
    Very disappointed.
    Salvatore_F, Nov 2022
    You moved the tour reservation from 11:30 s as m until 4:30 pm and then canceled all together. Very disappointed.
    Great Tour Guide
    kristen_N, Nov 2022
    Loic our tour guide was absolutely wonderful and so knowledgeable!!! We learned so much more than we would if we had gone on our own.
    An utterly disappointing experience!!
    DIANA_Q, Nov 2022
    Our tour got cancelled as guide was sick and they couldn’t find a replacement. Our tour was supposedly at 4pm and after communicating with the rep, we could only opt for refund and buy new tickets to go into Lourve on our own. Our tickets was 4.30pm and Lourve closes at 5.45pm, we had very limited time and could only cover a small part of the museum, made worse because we had no guide to help us “zoom in”.
    Small group tour of the Louvre
    JOHN_D, Nov 2022
    easy entry; personal insights of guide; small group made it easier to stay close to and hear the guide
    Our guide, Loic Lafon,...
    Regina_C, Nov 2022
    Our guide, Loic Lafon, made Le Louvre museum experience a memorable and understandable visit. He carefully curated each stop so that we had a sense of history and art. So helpful!
    Terrible tour
    LindaK, Nov 2022
    No memorable moments. Terrible tour. Guide’s accent was so strong I could barely understand what he was saying
    1st Louvre visit
    Zenobia_O, Oct 2022
    The Louvre Museum is awesome! Our guide was very helpful in navigating and insights to various art. We could not have enjoyed this experience without him.
