Your journey through some of the world’s great artistic treasures begins at the Arc du Carrousel, next to the Louvre entrance. Choose a morning, afternoon, or evening tour and meet your English-speaking guide. Enjoy fast access to the museum with your skip-the-line pass and begin your tour through the massive venue, home to over 35,000 works of art spanning more than 73,000 square meters of exhibition space. Your entrance pass also provides complimentary audio headsets.  

Wander the diverse exhibitions, starting with the Ancient Greek Parthenon, followed by the iconic 'Venus de Milo.' While in the ancient antiquities gallery, view the celebrated 'Winged Victory of Samothrace.' Then head to the Apollo Gallery to see the opulent royal crowns of Napoleon and King Louis XV. Get a taste of the French Revolution with Delacroix’s painting 'Liberty Leading the People,' and take in the Italian Renaissance as you gaze at the work of Michelangelo and Da Vinci's 'Mona Lisa.' (See full sample list below.)

With your small group (limited to 25 people), engage in lively chats with your guide and hear entertaining anecdotes, trivia, and history. Or if you've chosen the private tour, enjoy unlimited access to your guide's wealth of knowledge. Afterward, spend as much time as you like exploring the museum independently.

Please Note: Evening tours are limited to Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:30pm. For an extra unique experience, book an evening session and wind through the quiet corridors at night, when the crowds are gone and the artwork is basked in soft light.

Terrible experience.
, May 2022
50 tickets were sold for 25 headsets and one tour. First they said Viator oversold , then they said one guide didn’t show up. They had 50 tickets so we got into the museum, who apparently was #51. We had Viator ticket, but guide was long gone. Security said since he didn’t have an earphone, he wasn’t part of the group and would have to go buy a ticket. We argued, no one from tour was there, so we finally just walked in. Heard some of the tour from standing close to guide (who tried really hard). Museum was loud and busy, so we missed a lot. Terrible experience. We want a refund.
Bad experience . No refund till now
, May 2022
It was a very bad experience . there was no guide. We had to get the audio guide on our own . We had to wait for half an hour for one person from city wonders the tour operator to turn.
No Guide appeared , just a company representative
, May 2022
The experience was terrible. We met the Tour representative who took us into the Lourve and then informed us that there is no guide and no tour. He had tickets and said we could rent an audio guide from the Lourve. The whole purpose of purchasing the tour was to have a guided tour. We have requested a full refund and to date, the company / tour operator has not responded. Beware, do not use this company.
The guide spoke very...
, May 2022
The guide spoke very clear English and presented excellent information about the exhibits. The pacing was excellent.
Mona is devine...
, May 2022
The Mona Lisa was spectacular, not as 'small' as many, incluing our guide suggested. DeVinci 'John the Baptist and his recently dicivered young lady were spellbinding. Unfortunately, on original small group tour was cancelled, so there were 23 people and the museum was crowded. This is NOT a tour for those without stamina. John did his best, but he was as much a wrangler as an art historian.
Guide was a No Show
, May 2022
Our tour guide did not show up. The young man who was there to help gather the group was stuck and did what he could to apologize for the the lack of follow through by the guide. He says it happens a lot. I would not recommend this product. It did not deliver what was promised we will be asking for our money back.
Terrible experience
, May 2022
We booked a guided tour. When we showed up it ended up being a “mistake” and wasn’t a guided tour after all. Wasted an hour trying to get headphones for museum audio tour and then wrangle our group back together. Missed exhibits I wanted to see due to the wasted hour.
Skipping the line. ...
, May 2022
Skipping the line. The bad thing was the guide we were supposed to have got covid and they didn’t send a replacement so we had to do the museum on our own
Choose another company.
, May 2022
HORRIBLE!! Showed up to our meeting point and was informed that our guide did not show up to the tour. We were initially told there was nothing that could be done, and we couldn’t even reschedule. Luckily another guide agreed to let us join their tour, but there were not enough head sets so none of my group could hear the tour. A whole tour group of 25 people would have been left behind if not for this guide. Then, after complaining to the company they merely gave us a $30 “partial refund. Overall, terrible experience and would not book with this company again.
No experience as no admission on your ticket
, May 2022
There was no experience as your ticket issued is not valid as you no longer have a relationship with the Louvre and therefore you are stealing peoples money . I seriously believe you need to give us a refund and sort out your problems with the Louvre
