Didn and #39;t want to leave. Walked around for hours. Absolute amazement on all levels. Can and #39;t wait to go back.
The City Vision staff in Paris were extremely helpful. This is a great way to see the Louvre museum, especially with kids in tow. The audio equipment is light and easy to manage and you can go at your own pace and wander around other art works which aren and #39;t included in the guide.
Don't expect to go straight to the museum thinking you can get your tickets. The tickets are across the street. Friendly people with the tickets! The museum is amazing!!
Tour was great. Way too many tourists, but that's not the tour's fault. Some of the rooms had so many other tours in it that we could not stop to look, just walked slowly through the room as our tour guide talked via head set.
It was great, but a lot of walking is involved. Be sure you tell people to wear comfortable shoes. It is also great to have a Don't have to wait in line Ticket to enter. Lines were very long but we were able to walk right in.
We loved the Louvre and glad we didn't get a tour guide. It was worth skipping the line but we really felt that we could take our time and it worked out very well. If you do this tour you could rent the audio from the Louvre for 5.00 and you don't need to leave a deposit. But they do keep your drivers license and when you return the audio and they will give you your drivers license back. I had problems with mine and we exchanged it with no problems. I would recommend this tour!!
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.
