What you'll do

More than a Louvre Museum tour. With 35,000 pieces of art to discover on top of a rich architectural history, we understand if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by the Louvre. We’re here to help. It’s the most famous museum in the world, and with good reason. From its roots as a fortress to its days as a royal residence, the Louvre has more secrets than any building in Paris could ever hold. This intimate group tour seeks to captivate first timers as well as those who think they know it all as you visit statues like the armless Venus de Milo and the headless Winged Victory of Samothrace. Drool over the crowned jewels in the opulent Apollo Gallery and descend into the depths of the medieval moat beneath the museum. We’ll even discuss a few master painters like Michelangelo and Delacroix. From the smiling Mona Lisa to the 19th century masters, our passionate guides will show you what you need to see!

Our guide was Belen and she crushed it. It’s almost impossible to hit the highlights of the Louvre in 2.5 hours but she did it, giving us careful explanations, juicy back stories, and connecting everything along the way. If you only have a limited time in Paris, this is a perfect option to see the best of the Louvre in a short amount of time.

The Louvre skip the line private guided tour was amazing and well worth it for our group of 3 ranging in age from 17 to 73. Our guide was very informative and we were able to get right in and to the best locations of the museum to see the highlights. Had it not been for our guide we would have not known where to go because the museum is so large. This tour definitely was a highlight of our trip to Paris!

Typical douchey American misread the calendar (like for the 100th time in Europe it’s DAY, month, year, and had to miss, but instead of being annoyed asked when i would be there so he can figure something out. That’s a good guy! There’s no hiding that! Thanks for not making me feel like a jerk even though i kind of was!

The Louvre is just too massive to explore on your own; believe me, I’ve tried. This trip to Paris, I knew I needed a guided tour. Our tour guide was energetic, thoughtful, and extremely knowledgeable. We got to see all the greatest hits of the Louvre; highly recommend!

Romain a great guide! The Louvre can be overwhelming but he made it manageable - he’s a very thoughtful person. He also knew his subject matter very well.
