Traveler Tips

It's not your tour guide's responsibility to wait for you and hold up precious time that eats into other tourists' punctuality.
Unless you have days to spend wandering the 38,000 pieces on display, skip the (really long) lines and see the art through Lilli's trained eyes.
Private tours are not cheap but it was an unforgettable experience and Taylor managed to bridge to our 12-year-old grand-daughter, as well as her mother and, of course, us her grand-parents.

Louvre in the Day
Estelle_B, Mar 2023
Great experience with our tour guide Belen ! She was amazing at bringing this tour to life, she was very interactive and answered all our questions . We toured outside the Louvre and learned the history before going in, while inside we were given ample time to take pics if we wanted. Great tour.

Our tour guide, Valerie made our Louvre visit so much more enjoyable with her enthusiasm and knowledge. We would highly recommend this tour.
Very entertaining and exclusive tour
Lyna_D, Mar 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Valerie. She has a deep understanding of the history of the area, which made the experience come alive. The way she presented each gallery, and in the order she presented them, gave us a real appreciation of the art displayed and its place in history. Will definitely recommend Louvre Museum Paris - Exclusive Guided Tour to friends and associates. Many thanks.

Dunya is The Best @ The Louvre
Tom_H, Mar 2023
This was the best guided tour of the Louvre. Our guide Dunya was kind, accommodating and incredibly knowledgeable; an in-depth knowledge of the art, the museum, and French history. We are grateful she shared her rich understanding and her ability to communicate in a way that quickly brought the artifacts to life before our eyes. If you can request Dunya do it.
Miriam was amazing!

Romaine was a wonderful guide. We had trouble getting our taxi to meet the group at the designated time and he stayed in touch so that we could eventually meet up with the group. This was such an amazing tour and we learned a great deal of information. I highly recommend this tour!

Belen the BEST tour guide...
Kristi_W, Mar 2023
Belen the BEST tour guide we experienced in Paris. She was so informative, went above and beyond to care with a family member with a mobility issue, engaged our young daughter with a point game to keep her engaged. We learned so much, had a great time, and of course saw amazing art! And, this was the only tour that our youngest never said, I’m bored!
JoseA_P, Mar 2023
Nancy our tour guide was THE BEST EVER !!!! Highly recommended her. Amazing , friendly , kind , knowledgeable. She was on time.
Best tour of Paris trip!
Vivian_S, Mar 2023
This was our absolute favorite tour and event of our Paris trip, and Anatole, our tour guide for the Louvre was the #1 reason! We were family of 4, including an 11 and 15 year old. Both kids have said this tour was their favorite of the entire trip! The total in our group was 6, and the size was absolutely perfect. Anatole was so knowledgeable, passionate, and engaging. The kids absolutely loved him! He discussed artwork in a way that captured their interest and attention. I was not sure how the 11 year old would fair on this tour, but she loved every minute of it and wanted to stay and even wanted look at some additional sections after the tour was over! I had thought about the "scavenger hunt" option due to the 11 year old, but I am so glad I chose this option instead, as she was absolutely old enough to learn about and appreciate the pieces Anatole showed us. Also, this guided tour was the most efficient and productive way for us to experience the Louvre with a younger kid. Cannot recommend Anatole highly enough!!!
Fantastic tour of the Louvre!
Fred_W, Mar 2023
Miriam was a wonderful tour guide at the louvre. She was professional, kind and very knowledgeable. She answered all of our questions and made sure we were accommodated with any aspect of the Louvre. I highly recommend her for any group tour!
Semi-Private, four person custom tour!!
John_M, Mar 2023
Absolutely phenomenal experience! In hindsight I’m not sure how our group would have handled the Louvre alone. Our guide Valerie was an absolute treasure and made the experience truly great. She was organized, professional, immensely knowledgeable, but also tailored the tour to the interests of the group. Her passion became ours!!! Simply can’t describe how amazing it was!!
