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.

See the best of the Louvre in just two hours with skip-the-line tickets and a carefully planned route.

Get straight to the heart of France's most famous art destination on this express tour of the Louvre. With skip the line entry, your small group of no more than 20 will follow your guide straight for the museum's most famous and captivating works, including the 'Mona Lisa,' 'The Raft of the Medusa,' and other masterpieces. Learn the stories and secrets behind the art and artists from an expert licensed guide.

As home to the one of the largest collections of masterpieces from around the world, it's impossible to see every treasure of the Louvre in a single trip. With an expert guide who knows their way around the museum, streamline your visit to see highlights including Winged Victory, Venus de Milo, and of course, the Mona Lisa.

Admire works of art like The Mona Lisa, The Winged Victory and more as your guide shares their fascinating stories.

Meet up with your guide at the Arc du Carousel just across from the Louvre. Then skip the line and head inside the museum for a carefully curated tour that highlights the most iconic works in its impressive collection. You won't worry about getting lost as your guide leads you to world-famous artwork including da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Michelangelo's Slaves, and the Winged Victory of Samothrace, a 2nd century BC piece described as the world's “greatest masterpiece of Hellenistic sculpture.”

As you walk between the galleries, your guide brings the collection to life with fascinating tales of artists like Antonio Canova, Théodore Géricault, Eugène Delacroix, and Jacques-Louis David. Unravel the mystery of the Mona Lisa and learn why da Vinci's painting is considered one of the most important in the world. With a personal headset so you always hear your guide, you also dive into the history of the palatial building itself, admiring its opulent stonework and intricate frescoes and learning of the royal dramas that once played out in these rooms.

At 10:15 AM start time only: Enjoy an exclusive, intimate Louvre experience with a maximum of six guests, ensuring a personalized journey through art and history. If your party consists of more than 6 participants, there is a possibility you will be split up due to ticketing availability at the Louvre Museum.

Had a great tour! Hit the highlights at the Louvre. Our tour guide was fantastic-- knowledge, friendly, and kept us moving-- even more impressive because we had a few challenging other individuals on our tour, and the guide handled them with grace. Highly recommend!

Violet was amazing, my only disappointment is that I have yet to hear from her after the tour. She took down my email address as well as many others in her group with the promise of suggesting other tours in the future. Perhaps she just has not gotten to responding to us yet, but I worry that there could be a mixup And just in case there is, I would hope that you might share my official email address with her, as I would love to use her in the future for further tours. Thanks, Jenny Brault, [email protected].

Claire was fantastic at guiding us round the Louvre highlights and looked after the group well. For 2 people who have very little knowledge of art, Claire made it so accessible and interesting. It was well-paced and didn't feel rushed.
