Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

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

Don't waste time in a line but enjoy it in the museum. Buy your tickets in advance and SAVE time! The museum is too large to even spend 1 minute in frustrating lineups.

Anna did a great job. She was very knowledgeable, light-hearted, and fun. In addition to learning about the history of the Lourvre, I also learned a lot about the various styles of sculpture and art over the ages. I would definitely recommend the tour and specifically, Anna as a guide. John S

So glad we paid to have this tour. Excellent in all ways. John Edwards was great. Couldn't have been any better. Full 3.5 hours (30 min extra). Definitely a fantastic value!

Anna was very good. We loved her knowledge and she made it fun with her quizzes! I will make sure to study for the next time I visit! Thank you Anna!!

Great tour especially when you have a tour guide that is both knowledgeable and educated on the history of art. Fabrizia was our guide and we were very impressed with her knowledge and explanations. The Louvre is spectacular as well as enormous. Luckily for us our guide knew the museum so well and we moved around fluidly allowing us to see the remarkable artwork.

I highly recommend this tour! I recently (Nov 2019) took the Louvre tour with Anna - she was AWESOME! Anna was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the Louvre and all of the exhibits we visited (which was a lot). She welcomed questions and gave each member of our group individual attention. She is truly a gem!

Now for Louvre, what can I say that hasn’t already been said - SIMPLY PHENOMENAL! My favorite was Winged Victory. The wait time for Louvre admittance/security and to the Mona Lisa was minimal (thanks to the tour). We had ample opportunities to take pictures and see a great number of exhibits.

Moving constantly our guided group was able to see a pleasant portion of the Louvre. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Details and highlights were pointed out, including the original most and underpinnings of the Sun King’s Palace...now the Louvre, a fantastic museum.

We got to see all the highlights. However, probably could have seen more if we didn't spend so much time at just a few pieces. For me personally, I think I would have rather kind of zipped through so I could see more. It was a good tour though. We didn't have to wait too long. Our tour guide Ferret, was nice and knowledgeable. Always glad to buy the skip the line passes.

Guide was more like an art teacher than a guide. Got a little long winded at times, making your last over 4 hours.

This might have been better with a different guide. We had a older gentleman who paid for the tour and she refused to allow him access with the group because she thought he might slow everyone else. This could have been remedied by getting a wheel chair which was available. The guide simply was not very informative and the wireless headsets were horrible at best. Maybe it was simply a bad day for the guide.
