Stop At: Louvre Museum, 99 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris France

A visit to the Louvre is a must on a trip to Paris, as the museum contains many of the most famous artistic masterpieces of civilization! Many visitors feel intimidated by the vastness of the site and the magnitude of the collection; join us to skip the lines and get straight to the highlights! Our engaging, informed, and passionate guide will make sure your visit to the Louvre turns out to be among the most memorable moments of your trip to Paris.

The Louvre’s layout as a royal palace was not intended to function as a museum; the sprawling structure has nearly 10 miles of galleries. Trust your guide to navigate the halls,taking you efficiently to the most important works, and pointing out numerous lesser known beauties that you might have passed without noticing. You might appreciate the French Crown Jewels, Egyptian antiquities many thousands of years old, sculptural wonders by Michelangelo, and large-format canvases such as Liberty Leading the People and the Coronation of Napoleon.

Before becoming the permanent abode of countless artistic treasures, the Louvre was a royal palace for over 400 years; a visit to the Louvre is a walk through history. You’ll have a chance to see the foundations of the original medieval fortress that stood on this spot, and you’ll marvel at the Apollo Gallery where Louis XIV experimented with self-glorification before moving to Versailles. You may also admire the richly furnished and decorated salons preserved from the Second Empire, the last time the Louvre was home to a sovereign.

And of course, you won’t leave without spending some time in the presence of the most famous painting in the world, Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. Thanks to our guide’s explanations and anecdotes about this enigmatic image, you’ll leave with a better sense of why she’s such a big deal.

At the conclusion of our guided service, you will have the option of remaining in the museum... until closing time if you wish!

This tour was perfect as we were able to see all the famous pieces that we were excited about. Our tour guide was great and gave us great background information.

Great tour with a great guide, Wendy. She took her time, calm considering the volume of tourist, attentive and knowledgeable. That said, her voice was high/light and at times difficult to hear her. Since it was a small group, she was willing to repeat. I highly recommend this tour. I also recommend you take the tour first thing in the morning so as to get in and out of the Mona Lisa without the hordes of visitors that accumulate throughout the day.

Excellent tour guide! She was very informative and lively. We went to all of the main attractions at the museum.

Absolutely worth it to do a small group, skip-the-line tour of the Louvre, especially for a first visit. We completely lucked out, as there were only the 2 of us, so we ended up with a private tour with our fabulous guide, Felix. He was friendly, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. Not only did we see the highlights (the things you need to see the first time like the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Nike, etc.), but Felix provided terrific art history and historical background for each piece. The tour was about 2 hours and was very interactive; Felix always answered our questions. We stayed for approximately 2 more hours on our own to visit a few other wings before calling it a day there. Note: It is very crowded, and of course there are lots of people for the Mona Lisa. Just prep yourself for that, and you will be fine. Other galleries were not crowded, depending on where you went. Although it was not a hot day (late September), the Louvre inside was hot and humid, so wear layers so you won't get too overheated. Thank you, Felix, for a wonderful Louvre tour.
