Everything was wonderful.... Easy to find the ticket location. Could spend as much time as we wanted on the self guided (electronic tour). Skip the line was great---only way to go!!!
Map was very hard to follow and so was audio, we eventually just did our own thing and came across the apartments of Napoleon which were amazing and not shown on tour map . It was worth it though not having to queue for as long as those that weren't on a tour.
Lines are long and this ticket allowed us to get in to the museum more quickly. The audio guide took us to the most popular areas and works of art. Afterwards we had time to wander through the exhibits on our own.
GREAT to skip the line, worth every penny!
Being able to go on our own pace.
But the audio provided wasn't as indepth as I thought it would be.
Only covered the major things to see such as the Mona Lisa of course and Venus de Milo, etc...
But not the ones that weren't as major.
It helped speed things along being able to be on our own and go at our pace.
WORTH DOING to skip the line and be on your own pace.
Good way to see it as was no need to try to keep up with a guide and be within earshot to hear the information. Was a little annoyed that our booking said we had to be at the office by a certain time (we had to rush) only to be told when we arrived that we could start at any time and take as long as we liked.
The ticket office is located a block and half away. Thank goodness we ran into a local who knew where the office was located. We booked the morning tour. Nov is not a busy time to visit the Louvre. The audio devices did not contain headsets so you had to hold the device up to your ear the whole time. It got old so we stopped using them.
The exhibits and building are spectacular. We visited on a Monday afternoon and it was very crowded. A lot of visitors were more interested in taking photos than appreciating the exhibits. A crowd seven rows deep surrounded the Mona Lisa with camera and mobiles lifted above their heads which made it impossible to enjoy the painting.
I have since heard that it is less crowded in the evening.
The audio device must be picked up from an outlet some distance from the Louvre. The available information is limited and covers only the major exibits
