Full description
Home to more than 35,000 works of art, and artifacts from antiquity, the Louvre in Paris is one of the world’s best known and most loved museums. Covering more than 60,000 square feet of exhibition space, tackling this monument to art history on your own can be overwhelming. Book this 2.5-hour private tour and you will save valuable time and stress by being taken to some of the landmark paintings and sculptures. Designed as an introduction for first time visitors, the intimate tour navigates the halls in the company of an entertaining guide. They will lead you to some of the most celebrated pieces and answer any questions you have en route. Pose with the Venus de Milo, see the enigmatic Mona Lisa, and learn which works have made the most significant contributions to the evolution of art and civilizations. You will also discover some of the lesser known gems buried deep within the museum's galleries. Skip-the-ticket-line access means you will spend more time admiring the art and less time queuing, and you are free to stay on and continue exploring at the end of your guided tour.

The tour of the Louvre was the highlight of our stay in Paris. Our guide, her name was unfortunately lost in the exuberance of the mutual introduction and is no longer present to us, was competent, eloquent and extremely charming. She taught us a lot about the Louvre, its history and the most important exhibits. The tour was a great experience that we can wholeheartedly recommend.

Great Guided Activity

You can get lost in the Louvre, which is great if you have 2 days to burn trying to see everything you wanted to see. We were able to do it in a few hours with a guide. Next time I'm in Paris, though, I'll likely book off two days to get lost and see as much as possible. I'm glad I did this, though, so I could see the pieces everyone expects to see when wandering the Louvre.
