Why Travelers Choose This Tour

See in person works of art you’ve only seen on TV or read about in books. Afterward, when the museum café is packed with visitors looking for seats, relax at your specially reserved table as you drink a glass of Champagne or enjoy a gourmet lunch under the famous pyramid.
Considered one of the world’s finest museums, the Louvre in Paris boasts immense collections that could take months to explore. Hit on the highlights and make the most of your time with this Viator VIP tour. Meet your guide, one of the Louvre’s very own, near the museum entrance and head straight to the front of the long entrance queue.
Once inside the former palace, follow your guide to the most renowned and important works of art, including ancient Greek statues like Venus de Milo and The Winged Victory of Samothrace. Learn about the history of famous European paintings like Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa and, of course, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. These exhibits are often packed with spectators, but your staff guide and Viator VIP status will help you access the best viewing spots.
After your 2-hour tour, relax at the Café Grand Louvre beneath I. M. Pei’s iconic glass pyramid. There is often a long wait at the contemporary, light-filled café, but you’ll be seated straightaway at your group’s reserved table. Sip on a glass of Champagne or a soft drink, or upgrade to savor a 3-course meal of classic French cuisine, with or without Champagne (based on option selected at booking; see Itinerary for a sample menu).
Viator VIPs feature travel experiences not typically available to the general public — from behind-the-scenes access to private viewings and VIP service — at many of the world’s top attractions, often with no lines and no crowds. Viator VIP tours are not available from other 3rd-party online sellers.

quick but great way to see the highlights. The only problem was that you could not go back into the museum after lunch. The guide said the ticket was actually their group tour ticket, not ours so we would have to pay to go back in. We wanted to visit a couple areas that were not on the tour, but it was not worth waiting in line and then spending extra money on just a couple areas. It should say in the tour information under not included: ticket to the museum after the tour is not included.

Very good and informative. There seemed som econfusion on the meal and drinks inclusion but overall very good. I suggest that when people come out for their meal that they be given a re-entry pass for those who wish to explore the Louve further.

The tour guide was on time, spoke english very well and was very informative. I just wished she gave us hearing devices while she spoke on the microphone. It was very hard to hear her. Also we were unable to walk away to see other things because we couldn't hear her. It would have also been helpful if she had a stick with a brighter color or a sign with viator 10:30 so it was easy to follow her.

Some good points to this tour - straight in, no lines and a knowledgable guide - but having headsets would have helped a lot. We had to get in close to the guide to hear the commentary but he talked a bit too much so we never got to just look at any piece of artwork for ourselves. We were pushed through very quickly, but understand that is just the way these tours have to go. We just did the champagne and not the lunch which was fine, but the cafe was a bit disorganised. We had arrived nice and early at the meeting place, found another two who were waiting for the tour as well and saw our guide arrive but he made no effort to find us at all and was carrying his flag under his arm. We finally went over to him. He talked a lot at the beginning before we went inside which seemed to waste the time we had apparently gained by all being early! A good way to get a really quick over view but I think it could have been done more efficiently in a small group

Our guide was excellent. He was quite knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I think that more time needs to be allotted to the museum. The lunch was quite nice. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the Louvre.

We did see the highlights of the Louvre everything we had wanted to see, but the Louvre is very crowded and noisy. Unfortunately, in order for our entire group to hear our tour director, we would have needed headsets which were not provided. The title of this tour should be changed to Skip-the-Line Louvre Museum Small-Group Tour with options. The title confused the tour members and the restaurant staff.

Review should be no stars. We followed instructions on printed voucher. Missed tour, no one there. Later found different location under Have you printed your voucher. Next day went to latest location given for Eiffel Tower, again no one there. Then found someone at original instructions. Very stressful when traveling with elderly.
