Stop At: Louvre Museum, Paris, Ile-de-France

Your 3-hour journey through some of the world’s great artistic treasures begins at the Arc du Carrousel, next to the Louvre entrance. Choose a morning, afternoon or evening tour and meet your English-speaking guide. Enjoy fast access to the museum with your skip-the-line pass and begin your tour through the massive venue, home to over 35,000 works of art spanning more than 73,000 square meters of exhibition space. Your entrance pass also provides complimentary audio headsets.
Wander the diverse exhibitions, starting with the Ancient Greek Parthenon, followed by the iconic Venus de Milo. While in the ancient antiquities’ gallery, view the celebrated Winged Victory of Samothrace. Then head to the Apollo Gallery to see the opulent royal crowns of Napoleon and King Louis XV. Get a taste of the French Revolution with Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People and take in the Italian Renaissance as you gaze at the work of Michelangelo and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. (See full sample list below.)
With your small group (limited to 25 people), engage in lively chats with your guide and hear entertaining anecdotes, trivia and history. Afterward, spend as much time as you like exploring the museum independently.
Please Note: Evening tours are limited to Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:30pm. For an extra unique experience, book an evening session and wind through the quiet corridors at night, when the crowds are gone, and the artwork is basked in soft light. Enjoy the tour without all the bustle, and finish with great views of the Louvre’s glittery outside pyramid lit up after dusk.

Abby, our tour guide was fabulous. Even though many people were crowded into the Louvre, Abby guided us through quickly and efficiently. She was informative and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour.

My wife and I took this tour in early May 2019. It was great, easy to meet up with the group, quick access to the Louvre, and a great 3 hour tour by a real professional guide. Our English speaking tour guide was from Scotland and had a tremendous knowledge of the Louvre. I recommend this tour to anyone want to go to the Louvre and after seeing the lines there this is the quickest way to get in.

This tour was tops. Skip-the-line tickets allowed us to take the back group entrance and the group security entrance, and we waited for maybe 15 minutes total to get inside and begin the tour. Worth every penny.

Aleister (Alistair?) was a wonderful guide. He was funny, witty, and his Scottish lilt gave a +10 to the day (think David Tennant, not Douglas Henshall). The tour hit the main pieces in the Louvre, and included a tour of a section I would have never known existed--the original fortress wall reconstruction. Aleister provided interesting facts about various exhibits, as well as suggesting the best vantage points for photos. You can stay in the Louvre after the tour ends, so we ended up spending 8.5 hours wandering through the Louvre that day.

Take advantage of eating lunch on the outdoor veranda over the pyramid courtyard. You won't regret it. I can't recommend this tour enough.
