Details

Discover one of the world's greatest collections on a guided tour of the Louvre Museum, where you can marvel at artifacts from the Italian Renaissance to Egyptian art. In order to find the highlights of the collection, which would take months to view in its entirety, you will follow a route that has been carefully planned.

Take in da Vinci's enigmatic Mona Lisa and the moving Psyche Revived by Cupid's Kiss by Anthony Canova. In Gericault's Raft of Medusa, listen to the imagined version of the real story. See a collection of crown jewels and the palace's most exquisite decor when you visit Napoleon's former apartments.

The series of masterpieces continues with the Venus de Milo, a sculpture that has inspired numerous artists. The basement of the Louvre Palace contains remnants of the castle that once stood on the site.

Two choices are available: To obtain your ticket and guided tour, skip the ticket line and select from a variety of languages. As an alternative, select the guided tour for museum pass holders if you already have a ticket or pass to the museum.

Ivan was an amazing guide during our trip to the Louvre! He was so energetic and extremely knowledgeable. The museum is so massive but we felt like we got a really great intro in only 2 hours - no time wasted. Ivan was very fun, interesting, and so passionate about the museum & the artwork. He was also able to offer us tips and info for anything we wanted to see on our own after the tour. Our whole family (parents plus teenagers) really enjoyed our tour with Ivan - highly recommend!

Christophe was wonderful, we would have never been able to navigate the Louvre without him on a first visit. He was patient, friendly, and really engaging, and his passion for the art and stories was really clear! It was really a pleasure and we would highly recommend the tour! Thank you!

Our experience with Martina, our guide, was fabulous. Her knowledge of the museum is incredible. We were immediately comfortable with her. I recommend taking this tour with a guide, because Le Louvre is big and you can get lost without a guide. The stories are most interesting if they are told by guides that know their subjects. Loved it!

We had an amazing time during our Louvre tour. We have been on many tours and this was definitely one of our favorites. Lou was super informative and enthusiastic, we learned so much and had a great time. Made our Louvre experience so much more enjoyable, we would absolutely recommend to anyone going to the Louvre, especially for a first visit.

We can unreservedly recommend this tour. Our companion Valerie, a delightful, lively, middle-aged person, first asked about our expectations and after we had come out as "not knowing about art" and had expressed our desire to take the "must to see" with us, she guided us specifically for 2 hours through the exhibition with a lot of basic information, which means that we were able to take a lot of - and by no means boring - basic knowledge in connection with the exhibits and in general for ourselves within these 2 hours. It would not have made any sense to visit the Louvre alone - we would certainly have been overwhelmed after a very short time and would have quickly lost interest in the exhibits. With the guided tour, however, the visit was a highlight of our stay in Paris ;-) Many thanks again to Valerie!

Luciana was wonderful! She kept our group engaged and made sure we had a chance to rest while she was teaching us about the vast Louvre. We would have been lost and wasted a lot of time at the Louvre without her. Will have to request her for more tours when we come back to Paris.

It was a brilliant experience! So happy that I went with this instead of doing the Louvre on my own. There's just so much to see and the guided tour gives you the full context behind each of the works of art you see and also takes you around all of the "must-see" works of art. Would definitely recommend this over doing it on your own. Our guide Ivan/Evan was the absolute best- hilarious and super knowledgeable. Being a local Parisian he pointed out things that other guides would've missed

I do really recommend to visit the louvre with a guided tour to appreciate the highlights of the museum. Our Italian speaking guide shared a lot of interesting information and made the visit enjoyable, not overwhelming. I do really recommend this experience.

We are a family of 5 (children aged 14, 12, 9) and I would really recommend this activity. Our guide was extremely professional & knowledgeable. It made the whole experience so stress free having someone to bring us through all the highlights (and especially skip the crazy queues!).

Three days in Paris. The highlight was Miriam's tour of the Louvre. Your way of reporting on art makes it come alive! We - a family with four children between 11 & 16 - thought Miriam was great and would book her again and again! Hopefully it will work again sometime!
