Tour description

Olympics Advisory: The Paris Olympics & Paralympics are expected to cause significant travel delays throughout the city from July 14–September 9, 2024. To ensure you arrive at your tour meeting points on time, we strongly advise you to plan your journey with extra time to account for potential traffic and transportation delays.

Beat the crowds and see the Mona Lisa at the Louvre's quietest time of day.

Mona Lisa is a popular lady, so don't miss the chance to get close to her without the crowds. On this last-entry Louvre tour just before closing time, explore the museum's essential sections with an expert guide, and then experience the beauty of the world-famous painting in peace right as the doors are closing.

Accompanied by your expert guide, discover the palace's foundations at the moat, and then wander among the collection of Classical Greek statues to find the mysterious Venus de Milo and the triumphant Winged Victory of Samothrace.

Follow your expert guide on a carefully planned route of the Louvre's highlights

Marvel at the stunningly sculpted Cupid & Psyche and Michelangelo's Slaves, and get drawn into a pivotal moment in French history as you gaze upon Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People. Study the masterpieces of Caravaggio, Raphael, and da Vinci, admire the Romantic finesse of Géricault's The Raft of Medusa, and venture inside a room sparkling with Crown Jewels.

To wrap up your Louvre Closing Time Tour, make your way to the Mona Lisa Room and enjoy the freedom to get as close to the small but monumental painting as you like, soaking up the beauty of the lady's ambiguous and endlessly analyzed expression. Take your time absorbing every detail before making your way out of the museum and saying goodbye to your guide.

At 2:45 PM and 6:30 PM start times only: Enjoy an exclusive, intimate Louvre experience with a maximum of six guests, ensuring a personalized journey through art and history.

Great tour! We just had a short time in Paris so this was great to get in some highlights of the Louvre. Our tour guide Hugo was amazing. He had great knowledge and made the tour really fun and interesting. He kept us all together and gave us some tips should we visit again. So happy we did this tour as our introduction to the Louvre, feel confident if we went again we would know where we wanted to go.

Our small group tour with Simon was fantastic! I was amazed at his knowledge and his ability to answer any and all questions asked of him. We learned so much and we have continued to frequently talk about the facts we learned on the tour. He has a great sense of humor and had a friendly manner in engaging the group throughout the tour. I had previously been to the Louvre with an audio tour, which has no comparison to the in-depth knowledge Simon was able to present. I would recommend this tour to everyone!

The Louvre is so massive it can be intimidating, so going with a guide who knows art and takes Lulu to the main ones makes it much more accessible. Our guide Elliot was great. My only suggestion is take the tour in the morning if possible. That way you have more time when it is over to stay and take another look around.

Adam gave us a wonderful tour of the Louvre. We learned so much about art and history that we would have never learned without art history courses! It was fantastic and my daughter cannot look at art the same way after learning so much about Leonardo da Vinci’s techniques and processes. I would highly recommend.

We had our tour (Closing Time at the Louvre: The Mona Lisa at Her Most Peaceful) with Adam a few days ago and we are still raving about it. Adam and his thorough and in-depth knowledge of the Louvre, the Mona Lisa and ancient history made this the most memorable tour we have ever taken. He kept us engaged through the whole tour and he made us see the museum and many of the art pieces (especially the Mona Lisa) through enlightened eyes! He was able to point out pieces and speak about them so easily and he made the Louvre (which has always been such an overwhelming and intimidating museum because it is so vast) so user-friendly and comfortable. We (my husband and I and our 16-year old) all agree that we will forever measure all tours and guides with our experience with Adam. We are #TeamAdam and he has set the bar quite high. Definitely will recommend him and this tour!
