Great tour Audio tour enabled us to see as much of Louvre as we could with great commentary to aid our tour.Skip the line was appreciated when we saw the queue for tickets when we arrived. Managed to see Mona Lisa with hundreds of others but staff were great in moving people on so everyone had a chance to see it.An amazing place to visit .
This is the tour to choose if you prefer not to move along in a group, but set your own pace. You have the benefit of skip-the-line access and receive a booklet indicating must-see artworks. Then you just find them in your own time and listen to the relevant insert on the audio guide.
Great to do the Louvre with an audio guide so you're free to move around as a family and take your time at some things that interest you more and not at others.
Tour was excellent and well worth the price. The equipment for the audio tour worked well. My only problem was that I thought that the instructions on how to pick up your ticket and audio equipment were a little vague and could have been more detailed.
So glad to have a skip the line pass - we skimmed through all the lines and was inside before we could blink. Spectacular treasures - allow for a bid day of walking and seeing all the paintings and statues.
We arrived at the tour office early just in case but that proved to be unnecessary. They were so organised and efficient that they told us to come back @ the appointed time!. After receiving our audio guides, we skipped the long line to enter the Louvre. The info was thorough but short enough not to be boring.
Overall, it was great and we would certainly do this again as well as recommend it to anyone.
Excellent. I would recommend the longer version, however. We wanted much more! For those who aren't big on tour groups, the audio tour for museums is definitely the way to go.
Katy was very knowledgable and I learnt much about the tower. Much easier than lining up.
This was great for us, because you had an audio device to tell you about the highlights. But you are also able to stay longer in an area of you wanted to admire more of the art.
The Louvre museum is heavily attended and getting through the lines is worth every euro. The museum itself is grand and a must see. We paid particular attention to the apartments that are on exhibit to really get a sense of the opulence of the royally. The Mona Lisa is heavily attended, but significant of course. Pay particular attention to the art work on the opposite wall. Magnificat

While the Audio tour provides a good starting point for highlights of the Louvre, they offer you the option to extend the time you need to explore more than the tour itself has to offer. Very good tour. However, watch out for the most important venue exhibits - like the Mona Lisa. It's a small painting, and you'll be lucky to get better than 20-ft from it because you'll have to fight the mob to get there. Great tour, though.
The tour was great except for the crowds. Such a beautiful place with so much history and art but you feel rushed because of the crowds.
Worth every penny!! The queue was massive!! I would not have waited in the queue, and would have missed all the wonders inside! Go early as it gets very busy as the day goes on.
The self guided tour was fantastic. The interactive guide was so innovative and informative. It was nice that we could go at our own pace.
Thoroughly recommend the small group tour, there were four of us and our guide was fun and adjusted the tour to meet our interests.
