hours is not even close enough to see everything, but it's a good start.
The Semi-Private feature allowed the tour to be much more personalized as we were able to ask questions that you may not be able to ask in a large canned group tour.

Our tour guide, Roman, was great. We loved how knowledgeable and passionate he was about the paintings and sculptures. He showed us several areas few people see, as well as the popular pieces. It was a highlight of our Paris trip.
Amazing Louvre tour
Cyndi_B, Mar 2023
Absolutely amazing tour. My tour guide Claudio was so charismatic and passionate about the art. He made me excited to view the pieces. He was very easy to find at the meeting point and he was attentive the entire tour. Worth every penny!
Only way to do the Louvre
Sarah_M, Mar 2023
Our tour guide Hugo was amazing! He knew the best entrance to avoid the crowds. We had six people in our group and I would never see the Louvre without doing a small group tour. We saw the highlights, learned a great deal about Art History and French history. Even my 15 year old daughter who only wanted to go shopping loved Hugo and our tour!
Saturday @the Louvre

We had an amazing time on our semi private guided tour of the Louvre with our guide Sunday. She was delightful as well as extremely knowledgeable as we moved from focused pieces in the louvre collection. I would highly recommend Sunday and getting this tour. She was fantastic!
Quick Entry and Enjoyable Tour!

Hugo and the family of 4 worked out well

Fantastic Way to See The Louvre
Jlrpotlock, Dec 2022
We had a wonderful experience with our Guided Tour of the Louvre. Our guide Kotryna was so knowledgeable, professional, and funny. We learned so much and it made the Louvre trip incredibly worthwhile. We used the information our guide gave us when we visited other museums that week. We would do this again in a heartbeat. Kotryna is a rock star!

First Sean.. The guide! Made it a breeze, entry fast.. and he was always careful we were not left behind. Knowledgeable and switched on with great museum experience. If you went to Paris and did not see the louvre.. Then why did you go to Paris at all.!!! The hidden gem in the louvre as shown by Sean.. Excellent. We were six and with the Bluetooth support it was like we were the only ones. Excellent tour. Worth the money and 2.5 hrs was just never enough. We literally saw time fly. Even if you hate museums.. Don't miss this!
Great guide! Amazing museum!
Casey_H, Nov 2022
Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and generally amazing. (Valerie?) she helped us navigate the enormity of the Lourve.
Kenneth_I, Nov 2022
We were so impressed with Lili’s knowledge history and passion for art; her story telling ability and the way she engaged everyone in our group. We will come see her again!!! She made it an unforgettable experience!
Top Notch Tour!
Claire_d, Nov 2022
If you are fortunate to get Eduardo as your guide you will have the best experience touring the Louvre. Eduardo is warm and personable and entertained all questions He is so knowledgable about the art we viewed during our time and made the experience so much more enjoyable. I don't think we would have gotten as much out of the museum on our own. Thank you Eduardo!
Louvre Private Tour
Tracy_N, Nov 2022
Doing a private guided tour of the Louvre with my sister and my 82 year old mother was awesome. My mother loved it. Our guide Florent was awesome and had excellent insight into the Louvre and it’s collections. A definite must do.
Michael_A, Nov 2022
The guide was fantastic. We would have never seen as much as we did if we hadn't hired the private tour.
