My wife and I booked this tour for April 15 at 10 am.
Alas, due to unforeseen circumstances at FCO airport we missed our flight to Paris.
So I contacted Viator in order to reschedule tour and they, together with Paris City Vision, did it even though it was on extremely short notice!
And staff at Paris City Vision was very, very helpful, kind and professional.
Access was great no waiting. However, audio tour was a little hard to find as only selected pieces so might have been better to just hire audit inside the Louvre.
Need to go to an entrance other than the pyramid to truly skip the line. I did this and got in in a very short period of time. I honestly did not use the audio guide but took this option because I prefer to roam on my own, and this was the most reasonable skip the line option I found. Would purchase again.
Great pick up service and Sammie, our driver, was very cordial and friendly. Very happy with the whole experience. Highly recommend Paris Shuttle.
I enjoyed the interactive map. It' s a great new technology. It enables the participant target specific art work and find one's way. In a facility as enormous as the Louvre this is an advantage.
The only way to see the Louvre is you only have a few hours. You buy this tour online, pick up your tickets at the tour office around the corner 5 minute walk to the Lourve get your headsets with all the highlights to hit. It took us about 2 1/2 hours to see all the must works of art. Skip the HUGE line of people waiting to buy tickets. You go through security and are inside in minutes. There are free lockers once inside to store all your belongings. Would Highly recommended this tour to everyone. Enjoy!
This was a really enjoyable tour if you want to see the Louvre at your own pace and skip the lines.
The tour was great. Self guided which allowed you to see those things you wanted and spend as long as you wanted at those points. The audio devices worked great and the ability to touch the icon on the handheld map to hear about those famous paintings was amazing. We have used Viator for several trips and will continue to use them
Really good tour- without the audio tour, I would have been overwhelmed. But the audio tour was just the right amount- about 2 hours. Note where you pick up your ticket- it's just off of the Rue de Rivoli, not right at the Louvre.
The skip the line tickets are a must as the queues are very long. The only problem we had was the location of the ticket office. Everyone we asked gave us different directions and it was not easy to find. Nevertheless this tour was one of our highlights and would recommend this to anyone visiting Paris.
Excellent. Highly recommend purchasing this tour. We walked in quickly and got to explore on our own with no time limit.
You can not possibly see it all, but the audio tour added a lot of interesting facts and with this tour you could stay all day.mif you are going to more than one museum however I would recommend the Museum Pass. I would do this tour again.

It definitely helps to take this audio tour as one does arrive early and beat the crowds and lines! The Louvre is enormous, but this tour allows one to see the most famous paintings and sculptures and also get an idea of the many other treasures found at this museum. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who does not have the time to explore every nook and cranny of the Louvre and yet wants to understand its tremendous importance to the art world.
Picked up vouchers from around the corner, then walked right in.
Louvre is so big this tour gave focus to the visit and the audio sets were easy to use
Perfect for us, we enjoyed being able to walk around the museum at our own pace and the audio tour was very interesting. We were staying near the louvre anyway so picking up and returning the map and audio equipment was very easy.
The tour suited our needs perfectly and the skip the line tickets were very much required after seeing the very long line! The map and audio guide provide were very helpful the only tip would be is to take earphones as these will plug into the audio and negate the need to hold the radio to your ear at each point of interest. Overall we were very happy with the self paced tour and would recommend!
Great bc there was a big line!!!! so we skip the line and the audio was really good. They allow me to change the language in audio bc my partner is from Russia. Thanks!!!
It was so much fun! The pick up was easy and fast. My family really enjoyed this museum.
