Traveler Tips

If you're there early you'll avoid what I went through for a
I think this si the better way to visit the Louvre with young children, by your own and the interactive más is exellent, it has audio tour for children, The tour operator is very good located to get the Louvre.
Generally the directions were good, but didn’t always say when you need to go up or down stairs, etc.

I booked this tour for...
Thomas_B, Mar 2023
I booked this tour for louvre timed entry because they had one at noon the same day. When we arrived the person at the office said they did not get it confirmed from viator and there were no tickets. And she was very rude. She didn’t care that we had just paid $94 for nothing. Basically fraud. Called viator. Lady on phone was very nice and she said I would be refunded but it would take 4-7 days but I’m still waiting confirmation for this. We also wasted 2-3 hours of our morning dealing with this.
Confusing - don't bother
Ted_D, Mar 2023
was not able to get access to the museum. this wasn't mentioned in the email. I'm not sure what the 'tickets' where that were emailed to us. By the time we realized we needed to pick the actual tickets up at another location, it was too late.
Louvre/Siene River Tour
Mary_Y, Mar 2023
This package was a great value and a time saver! We purchased our package and were able to bypass the line at the Louvre for entry. Our package included a Siene River tour that could be used the same day or later in the trip. We ended up using the river tour tickets the following day. It was a great way tour, but be aware that it is not a hop on/hop off tour.
great value for louvre and river cruise
Chris_M, Feb 2023
great value and the river cruise was worth it. I can recomend for families and couples to experience while visiting Paris.
An amazing experience.
Deborah_H, Feb 2023
An amazing experience. Did not realise how big the Louvre is. Make sure you dedicate enough time to your visit.
Should have just purchased the regular tickets.
Johquin_Y, Feb 2023
Mona Lisa was very packed. "Skip the line" was not as advertised. Not really worth the additional funds.
Terrible experience
Jacqui_C, Feb 2023
You can't get in with scanned ticket on your phone you have to visit a shop away up the road then go back. Then you have to enter the back door... the lions gate, no directions ... terrible. It's the back end of the Louvre you basically go around it backwards!!! never would I do this again. Very stressful experience we had to do about 5 queues to get in. Surely in this day and age a scanned ticket for your phone is not too much to ask!! We ordered the guided headphones and we were told to download an app... this was useless, we were guessing our way along... no guidance just click a button when you reach a famous piece of art... other than that nothing about any of the other pieces or even a map!!! Terrible experience.
Over Priced and Poor Communication
Kirk_R, Jan 2023
The hassle of getting in the museum, the hassle of getting to the cruise. It’s far too much for such meager, accommodations.
Under under expectation
Henry_B, Jan 2023
No maps, no audio guide, bad recomendation to entry throught the Lion Gate. Value of package versus real value of ticket in Louvre is a not deal for custumers
Great Louvre experience but impossible to use cruise tickets
Catherine_F, Jan 2023
Loved seeing the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. It certainly helped having ticket ahead but there were still queues. No point having the river cruise ticket as queues were impossible to get through
Worth every dollar!
Joanna_S, Jan 2023
We completely failed to reserve tickets for the Lourve museum and Paris city vision saved us with the skip the link entrance. You enter separately from the chaos in the front of the busking. You must buy this ticket if you want to skip the headache. Worth every dollar!
Horrible experience!...
Andrea_D, Dec 2022
Horrible experience! Despite having a reserved time to enter we waited in line for over 90 minutes just to get in.
My louvre visit
Prasenjit_S, Dec 2022
Even if the ticket is not guided and skip the line , based in advance booking , from the tour operator there’re should be guidance on the ground . For me it was lot of confusion with the ticket . But finally , managed to get thru the big queue . The visit in louvre was fabulous . Sculpture , arts and painting was an amazing experience . Visit to room 711 to see the famous MonaLisa was simply worth the trouble
Phil_R, Dec 2022
Refuse do entry to every exhibit . Bought tickets for Dali in bruges no issues . For Louvre I was allowed entry into the main reception area to be refused entry into every exhibit/hall Don’t not use this app for Louvre
Harrison_H, Dec 2022
Dont buy tickets from Viator they don’t actually get you in the museum. This is such a rip off and a frustrating waste of money they scam you.
Nick_R, Dec 2022
Pick up location had moved and the ticket’s received for the Louvre were not for the same time. Look elsewhere for a tour.
The were cheaper ways to...
Jason_M, Dec 2022
The were cheaper ways to get next day tickets for the Louvre (standing in a massive line, mostly) but none that were easier and more convenient. Spend the money. The Louvre is amazing. And you want to maximize your time viewing the collection. The boat tour was a nice add on with our tired feet.
Beauty in eyes of Lisa
Ida_S, Nov 2022
The art work wonderfully done! The buildings are just gorgeous. To see the greatest pieces in the world.
A must see
Mercedes_F, Nov 2022
The Museum itself is beautiful and is a must see but for what we paid you could just buy a ticket and go at it alone. We picked up the tickets at the location but we ended doing it alone since the person directed us directly to the entrance and not sure if we were to have a guide or not.
A full days experience
MaryAnn_M, Nov 2022
The museum is what you make of it and this is among the best in the world. Our only comment is trying to find the office to pick up tickets is a disaster no one knows how to or where to direct you. It took us 45 minutes and being sent back and forth from line to line to finally locate the office. Better information needs to be provided to foreigners.
