What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Walking Tour including Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa

Venus de Milo, Louvre Museum Paris

Your 3-hour journey through some of the world’s great artistic treasures begins at the Arc du Carrousel, next to the Louvre entrance. Choose a morning, afternoon or evening tour and meet your English-speaking guide. Enjoy fast access to the museum with your skip-the-line pass and begin your tour through the massive venue, home to over 35,000 works of art spanning more than 73,000 square meters of exhibition space. Your entrance pass also provides complimentary audio headsets.  

Wander the diverse exhibitions, starting with the Ancient Greek Parthenon, followed by the iconic Venus de Milo. While in the ancient antiquities gallery, view the celebrated Winged Victory of Samothrace. Then head to the Apollo Gallery to see the opulent royal crowns of Napoleon and King Louis XV. Get a taste of the French Revolution with Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People, and take in the Italian Renaissance as you gaze at the work of Michelangelo and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. (See full sample list below.)

With your small group (limited to 25 people), engage in lively chats with your guide and hear entertaining anecdotes, trivia and history. Afterward, spend as much time as you like exploring the museum independently.

Great tour in spite of the amazing crowds. Our guide worked hard to make sure that we saw all of the incredible art, and artfully navigated the crowded conditions.

The tour guide (English language) was very accommodating. She made sure she was not going too fast and always pointed a chair or other seating out for my comfort. She was well informed and explained the art in details. Highly recommend a tour through

Our Guide Violet was AMAZING! She was so informative, and so fun at the same time...what a combo! The Louvre was just beautiful! We spent a little extra time walking around after the tour...and yes, we got lost! So glad we had a guide and was able to see the highlights first!

Wonderful! Our guide was knowledgable and had a very real passion for the louve and its' collections. She took is right past the long lines and straight to the high points of the museum . As our ticket allowed us in and out access all day to the museum she also gave us recommendations on other awesome collections in the louve. Highly recommend!

This tour has been a highlight of our trip so far. Our guide Caroline was nothing short of amazing, with a passion for art and the Louvre itself. We went in the evening when it was not quite as crowded. We learned so much about the art and the artists! Definitely will recommend to friends.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

Our tour group was extremely small, due to a happy coincidence of scheduling. There were just 5 of us, plus our wonderful guide, Felix. This allowed Felix to address our individual questions. Felix was knowledgeable and funny. He led us through the highlights of the Lourvre. I highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful and thoroughly informative tour of the Lourve highlights with our guide. I highly recommend this tour, especially if you are tight on time and can and #39;t spend days wandering the Lourve with all your own research in hand. You can also linger after the tour on your own.

What a treat. Knowledgeable and passionate guide and no lines. Worth doing at night to avoid the crowds.
