Meeting And Pickup

Meeting point

  • Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel
    Arc de triomphe du Carrousel, 75001 Paris, France

    You will meet your guide at the Arc du Carrousel facing the Louvre Pyramid. The guide will be holding a sign with your name.

End point

  • Musée du Louvre
    75001 Paris, France

    The tour ends inside the museum, so you can continue visiting this huge and wonderful museum after your guided tour, if you wish so.

What To Expect

Gather your family and meet your guide on the Place du Carrousel, just opposite the entrance to the Louvre. Your private guide is very experienced with families of all combinations and children of all ages; they will ensure everyone in your party is engaged in the history and art of the Louvre.

With prepurchased tickets, you'll skip the long line and proceed directly inside. Follow your guide to see the most famous treasures of the museum; choose from a 1.5-, 2-, or 3-hour tour, depending on your time available and attention span of your group. Learn about Mona Lisa's legend, the Egyptian Gods or the famous da Vinci code. Hear the history of the building, which was originally built in the 12th century as a fortress. 

Stop by must-see masterpieces by artists such as Ghirlandaio, Ingres, Michelangelo, Bernini, Delacroix, Canova, and Géricault. The goal is for all tour participants to feel inspired by the museum's treasures and to make the sometimes overwhelming collection accessible to everyone.

Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel

Your family tour starts outside the Louvre, where you'll meet your private guide and learn something about the history and the architecture of this huge building.

5 minutesAdmission Ticket Free

Louvre Museum

You'll enter the museum with prebooked tickets. The Louvre truly has something for everyone in the family, and your guide keeps the kids enthralled with interesting facts about the history of the museum and its works of art, for instance, the fact that the Louvre was built in the 12th century and was originally a fortress and palace. With your guide leading the way, see the works of major artists like Géricault, Canova, Delacroix, Bernini, Michelangelo, Ingres, and Ghirlandaio. Perhaps you'll also see the Crown Jewels or the Napoleon III Apartments, depending on your interests and availability of masterpieces. Of course, you probably won't want to miss Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, as well as other famed masterpieces such as the Winged Victory of Samothrace and Venus de Milo. You can decide if you want to go for a 2 hour or a 3 hour tour, depending on the needs of your kids, and what you see can be tailored to your preferences and the ages of your children.

A delightful and educational trip to the Louvre
Greg_P, Feb 2023
Our guide Tatiana was friendly and knowledgeable. We saw different parts of the Lourve and learned some new excellent historical facts. We will had a fabulous time thanks to the tour guide.
Incredible tour that was very kid friendly
Kachiu_L, Jan 2023
Tatiana was an amazing guide and was somehow able to keep my rowdy kids (ages 7 and 9) entertained. She was incredibly engaging and we felt like we did a deep dive into the Louvre during our 3 hour tour. Would rate them 6 stars if possible!!
A great way to see the Louvre
Caroline_K, Jan 2023
Helene was an excellent guide and we all enjoyed our tour of the museum. This was a fantastic way to expose our kids (11, 9, and 4) to the Louvre. It was a manageable amount of walking for our youngest and Helene's explanations really brought the artwork to life in a memorable way. All three of the kids were engaged and excited for the duration our our tour - even during the 15 minute line to view the Mona Lisa! I would highly recommend this tour.
Highlight of our trip!
Jorge_M, Dec 2022
Fantastic! Tatiana was extremely knowledgeable. Made the tour the highlight of our trip so far! She was extremely patient with our children and our autistic son. Would definitely recommend her. And hope to book her for another tour soon. Thank you!!
Fantastic tour!
Karen_G, Dec 2022
This was an incredible experience and I would recommend it to any family. Our kids are 12 and 9, and Ruth, our guide, did a magnificent job keeping them engaged and excited about the art. She answered dozens of my daughter’s questions about French royalty with ease. She also showed us tons of key pieces during our 3 hour tour and when it was over, my 6th grade son was asking when we can return. Highly recommend!
The tour guide was late...
Kandice_C, Dec 2022
The tour guide was late and because some of the people on the tour did not want to summit to the top, despite the fact we all paid for the summit, the entire group was forced to stop at the 2nd floor before returning to the bottom.
Wouldn't go back without rebooking this again!
Amanda_M, Nov 2022
We had the most wonderful time. To say this was family friendly would be an understatement. We went with 2 kids - age 3 and 7. Both were fully engaged and enjoyed the 2 hour tour. We all felt like we learned a lot. We began the tour by listing what our priorities were to see and then our tour was specially designed around our family. It was so worth the price and we wouldn't go back to the Louvre again without booking another tour!
You should try the private tour
Andrew_H, Nov 2022
Our tour guide Agette made it really cool… she had a lot of passion in her teachings and made everything more interesting. I recommend it to anybody
Family outing at the Louvre
ToddA_M, Nov 2022
Our guide (Tatiana) was awesome with the kids - never gave up trying to engage, even faced with the most shy and stubborn pair of kids. Our only regret was that we didn’t have her for an extra 3 days with the adults in the louvre - she is very knowledgeable and there is so much to see. Tatiana had a plan before we started, focusing on particular areas in the museum that would interest the kids without being beyond there ability to understand.
Great experience
Willard_M, Oct 2022
Paloma was great with children and managed them to engage with the museum. She also asked for special interests and guided us to those specific areas
Super Tour!
Karen_F, Oct 2022
Hassle free booking - the tour company was very responsive with clear instructions and open communication. Our guide was wonderful, engaging and knowledgeable - the tour was perfect!
Great family tour with Paloma!
Kari_A, Sept 2022
This was a great tour to take with kids! Paloma tailored it to our interests, then took us straight to the highlights and taught us something about each of them. She also had us do a drawing activity that my kids loved! It was a great way to do the Louvre with kids.
Amazing experience for kids and adults
Ibrahim_B, Aug 2022
Outstanding guide Paloma is a knowledgeable expert storyteller who made the tour interactive with our three 8-10 years old boys. The tour kindled our kids’ curiosity for art and history.
Eloise goes to the louvre
Alexis_P, Aug 2022
Absolutely magical experience. Ask for Tatiana. Our daughter was entranced by her. It was like Eloise goes to the Louvre I can’t say enough good things - I’ve studied art history and still I learned even though it was geared to her we never waited - book this tour and request her. This was one of the best museum experiences in my life
The best decision I could ever make!
ERIK_B, Aug 2022
Better than expected! Ruth our guide was incredibly cute, smart and very polite specially with our children. Our kids loved her! It’s great to have a private guide like she was, and I can’t recommend her service enough. Please invest in this guided tour you will not regret at all! Thanks Ruth, we appreciated you gave us the tour in Spanish because my wife doesn’t speak English. Merci beaucoup!
Inna our guide was truly...
Robert_C, Aug 2022
Inna our guide was truly lovely and was great at both engaging the kids and sharing the wonderful history of the louvre and it’s art.
Great experience
Stephanie_K, Aug 2022
Our kids loved learning how to write their names in hieroglyphs, and we enjoyed hearing the historical context we didn’t know behind some of the well-known pieces. Ruth was a wonderful guide (despite our youngest being a very grumpy and disagreeable traveler through much of the tour)! She was very engaging and knowledgeable. Would absolutely recommend this tour for folks who want to see the highlights of the Louvre quickly and effectively.
Great experience
Andrew_G, Aug 2022
We were very pleased with our experience. Rafael was a terrific guide, very knowledgeable, and curated an experience that kept our children engaged and learning for three hours. Concentrated on the history of the Louvre, the Greek antiquities, French and Italian art. At the end, as the children had some remaining energy, did Mesopotamia and sculptures from Versailles. Would confidently Rafael to others, and intend to do so.
Easiest way to visit the Eiffel Tower
Erika_M, July 2022
We have visited in the past, but this was the first time we took our young children along and it was truly the best way to do it. You have direct access, pretty fast. We arrived on time & the guide was really nice and
Versailles with the family!
Cortney_H, July 2022
We had the best time with Kevin, our tour guide at Versailles. My youngest is 9 and he held her attention throughout the whole tour. He was funny and very informative. We learned a lot! I would definitely recommend this trip.
