Your journey through some of the world’s great artistic treasures begins at the Arc du Carrousel, next to the Louvre entrance. Choose a morning, afternoon, or evening tour and meet your English-speaking guide. Enjoy fast access to the museum with your skip-the-line pass and begin your tour through the massive venue, home to over 35,000 works of art spanning more than 73,000 square meters of exhibition space. Your entrance pass also provides complimentary audio headsets.  

Wander the diverse exhibitions, starting with the Ancient Greek Parthenon, followed by the iconic 'Venus de Milo.' While in the ancient antiquities gallery, view the celebrated 'Winged Victory of Samothrace.' Then head to the Apollo Gallery to see the opulent royal crowns of Napoleon and King Louis XV. Get a taste of the French Revolution with Delacroix’s painting 'Liberty Leading the People,' and take in the Italian Renaissance as you gaze at the work of Michelangelo and Da Vinci's 'Mona Lisa.' (See full sample list below.)

With your small group (limited to 25 people), engage in lively chats with your guide and hear entertaining anecdotes, trivia, and history. Or if you've chosen the private tour, enjoy unlimited access to your guide's wealth of knowledge. Afterward, spend as much time as you like exploring the museum independently.

Please Note: Evening tours are limited to Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:30pm. For an extra unique experience, book an evening session and wind through the quiet corridors at night, when the crowds are gone and the artwork is basked in soft light. Enjoy the tour without all the bustle, and finish with great views of the Louvre’s glittery outside pyramid lit up after dusk.

We were not able to watch louvre museum because the guide left us and we were not allowed to enter the museum since the guide has the ticket…we always booked through viator but now we will not prefer viator since we lost our 10000 rupees due to this incident!!

A bucket list item

We had to see the Mona Lisa. Warning, the Louvre is very crowded. So we thought the group ticket to skip the line would be the best idea. However, beware there are no in and out privilege and the fine dining options are not inside! So armed with a full stomach, and water you will enjoy a fast paced 2 hour tour that ended at the Mona Lisa. The lineup to see her was worth it. We stayed after the tour for a little while but we had not known that only Cafe style food was available inside so we bailed for real food. We loved the place, but we will need to go back on our own one day to see it at our own pace.

We did the tour with Martina. She was funny and kept the tour engaging with interesting facts about the paintings and sculptures. She told us about the fun places to visit and eat in Paris as well. It was time well spent and we got to see all the “must-see” artifacts on our tour.

Gregory was fantastic, knowledgeable and entertaining. Did you know that if you stood for 5 seconds in front of each piece at the Louvre it would take you one month to see everything?? This tour is a must as I wouldn’t have known where to begin or end at the Louvre. Also at the height of tourist season, always good to skip that line! Gregory is patient and tells entertaining stories about the history of Paris and the evolution of art. Thank you!

Our tour guide Addie was wonderful. She did a great job of explaining the history of the various pieces, their historical context, and even the techniques the artist used. Couldn’t have had a better guide.

Poor Accountability for missed guide.
Michael_W

We were unable to experience the Louvre as our tour guide did not show up. There was also no accountability of the tour operator to find us a replacement guide or obtain our skip the line tickets. There were no other days that we could have attended the museum as it was closed on Tuesday.

Definitely a plus that we could skip the queue and have an experienced guide take us through the Louvre. As a first time to the Louvre I’d recommend this approach. We did the last session of the day, which meant at the end we had no free time to explore ourselves. My only comment would be if you did want free time to explore you should book an earlier time slot.

Very nice tour. Our guide was informative and helpful (Marea). She helped us to see as much as we could in a very short period of time. No lines and it felt like we had a good sampling of the museum. Highly recommend.

In order to see all the important works of art and navigate your way through the crowds; you should definitely use a guided tour. The tour guide shared information about the art and history along the way.
