Don't try to go the Louvre on your own the first time. This is the only way to go!
You avoid the three hour line-up for tickets by booking this tour. However, I would still not recommend going in July as it is shoulder-to-shoulder people inside. Go to the opera house instead.
You should also know that you are not going to get walked through the Palace with your guide, you go with headsets. The information on the drive there is great, but you could probably hire and taxi and read the info yourself.
Wonderful guide, amazing views! Lots of climbing stairs involved, so be sure to ask for the elevator if you don't think you can make it.
