Our guide was Paulina and she was amazing. VERY knowledgeable. We were able to bypass the long lines and she got us right in. She took us to the areas of greatest interest to us and kept it very interesting. At the end of the tour, she even accompanied us to the subway station and helped us get tickets!! Now that's service.

Paris Louvre Museum Guided Tour was excellent! Highly recommend this tour for those who want to see the highlights of the museum. Our tour guide gave us the option to walk around after the tour unguided which was great as we could go our own pace.
Tour guide was very informative and kept the tour very interesting for my husband and I.
Best decision booking our tour through Viator.

An exceptionally well organised tour that really bought the beautiful artworks in the Louvre to life. Our guide was friendly, helpful and very knowledgable, and by using the headsets provided, despite the crowds in certain areas of the museum, audible throughout the tour. The Louvre itself is vast so the tour focused on providing an introduction to treasures from Ancient Egypt to the Napoleonic era in France. We were able to skip the entrance queues and go straight in, which was great as the museum was very busy. The tour lasted around 3 hours and I was totally absorbed throughout, and would happily have stayed longer! I would recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to gain an overview of what the Louvre has to offer, with a view to exploring the museum further on another visit. Overall, one of the highlights of my trip to Paris.

Really enjoyed our Louvre tour. The place is huge and impossible to see everything even if you were there for days. But our guide was excellent. He took us to all the main things we wanted to see. Skip the line is brillant. When we arrived it was a wet Saturday morning and there were people outside in a que (which was much longer when we were leavinga few hrs later) No que's for us !!! Straight in and off we went. I won't go any where in the world now without checking out what Viator have to offer. I've used them a few times now and I think they are brillant.
One small point, the meeting point for this tour has the wrong company name. the address is right but the guiding company is a different name. Perhaps just change this on your website. that a side a massive thumbs up for Viator.

Excellent way for people with limited time to get the most out of an afternoon at the Louvre . Our outstanding guide covered lots of territory - giving fascinating insights into some of the works and making sure that we got to see the highlights. There is lots of walking involved, including a walk from the meeting place to the Lourve itself...but it is well worth it!!!

Our tour guide was most informative and had a great sense of humor and loads of energy. Definitely was well worth skipping the lines as well as having her help to navigate us through the massive Louvre and explain all the important facts we would have missed without her! Merci........Karen, Kevin and Anne

Great tour. Guide very knowledgeable and without her it would be difficult finding some of the great works. Enjoyed Napoleaons apartments too.

You could spend a month in this one museum. The tour was great and gave me a great orientation to museum. We spent more time there after the tour. We even shopped a little in the area. There is a great little outdoor cafe right there - try it!
