Make your way to the Louvre Museum, where you’ll meet your guide near the museum entrance. The Louvre is known for some of the longest lines in Paris, but you’ll walk right in with your guide.

Learn the history of the Louvre Museum as you walk to three highlights of the vast collection. Stand at the foot of the towering Winged Victory of Samothrace, who represents the messenger goddess Victory. The flowing cloak and muscular figure are full of life and energy—even though the statue is more than 2,000 years old.

Continue to another beloved statue, the Venus de Milo, among the most famous works to have survived from ancient Greece. Find out how the sensuous statue was lost, and found, on the tiny Aegean island of Milos. You’ll also see Da Vinci’s celebrated Mona Lisa, which is often described as the best-known painting in the world, and your guide will share what’s known, and what still remains a mystery, about the exquisite portrait.

After this 2-hour tour of the Louvre, you’ll have independent time to visit the rest of the museum, and your guide can point the way towards the exhibits that interest you most.

Most amazing tour!
Jill_J
, Jul 2022
Oh wow our guide was beyond amazing. She was very well educated on French history and art. This was the best tour I’ve been on in years. We saw all of the main sites easily and learned a great amount of info. It was a great education for both myself and my teenager. I recommend this tour. You can see all of this on your own but the information provided by the guide was well worth it. Also she helped us easily through the museum maze which would have been a lot of effort for us alone to navigate and be able to see everything. After the tour we continued on our own and spent the rest of the day in the museum and even ate there for a little break.

It was very poor as we needed to rebook and no one called me back or emailed me. We were delayed and told the booking agent. They said they would call back but never did.

Our tour guide Eleanor was excellent! Three of us had a 2-hour private tour with her, and she made the artwork come to life. She was very knowledgeable and interesting! I would highly recommend this tour!

The guide we were provided barely spoke English and was hard to understand. He took little time to answer questions. While he took us to the main attractions he had to constantly ask for directions

I really enjoyed this tour. I got lucky and was the only one booked for the tour. The guide was very good and he was great at explaining the art as well as answering all my questions. He also gave me some great recommendations on areas of the Louvre to explore after the tour that were amazing and not as crowded. Thank you !

Our guide was great. She knew where to go and when. We did skip some lines but not much on seeing Mona Lisa. The only very long line. Again, we liked our guide.

Great tour to see the most famous pieces and navigate the crowds efficiently. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Was a little hard to hear with single ear piece at times but well worth it overall.

Great tour when you do not have time...
Katrina_R
, Apr 2018
Great tour when you do not have time to dedicate a full day..or three..to fully see the Louvre. There is so much to see that it is impossible on a tight schedule but our guide brought us to the highlights and gave us some pertinent history we were not aware of. It was perfect timing and the skip the line feature is fantastic!
