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.

Viator failed to contact us about change in our tour time so we missed the tour. Disappointed with Viator's trustworthiness.
We missed the tour. ...

We missed the tour. The meeting point is not contained on the ticket face, nor in the “before you go” link. By the time I found the info buried in a different link, it was too late. I suppose it was my mistake. But when My feedback suggested that they put the meeting point info in an easier to find place, they dismissed my feedback and provided no refund. This most important info should be on the ticket face or in the main email that links to the ticket rather than buried in a link from that email .
Day at the Louvre

Our guide, Summer, was excellent! Very informative, interesting, and kept us engaged. Unfortunately, we couldn’t physically handle all the walking (place is tremendous), but thoroughly enjoyed our experience!
Must do in Paris!

Our tour guide, Ivana, was FABULOUS! I don't even like museums, but Ivana made it so interesting. Turns out the Louvre was my favorite thing on my trip to Switzerland, Paris, and London!
Best tour guide ever!

Our guide was absolutely wonderful. She was so well-informed and had so much information. It was a pleasure spending the day at the Louvre.
Great Tour, highly recommend!

I loved the fact that the tour came with audio devises. It made it easier to hear the guide. The guide was very knowledgeable and I learned a lot on my tour. She kept everyone interested. You can also stay in the museum after the tour is over which is an added bonus.
Team Adam ROCKS
, Sep 2021
This was, hands down, the BEST tour we had during our trip to Paris. Adam was the most fantastic tour guide we had all week. He knew SO much. Had a terrific way of communicating and teaching. I wish I could have taken him with me all week long! I learned so much and he really took us places I'm not sure I would have gone without him.
Informative tour
, Sep 2021
Violetta is an experienced and knowledgeable guide. She kept our group together and explained many things about the venus, mona Lisa, and other famous French artist. We saw all the di Vinci paintings in the Louvre. Very informative. Excellent English speaking Francophile!
Great experience
