If you're there early you'll avoid what I went through for a
I think this si the better way to visit the Louvre with young children, by your own and the interactive más is exellent, it has audio tour for children, The tour operator is very good located to get the Louvre.
Generally the directions were good, but didn’t always say when you need to go up or down stairs, etc.

You pay for an extra headache. Just go on your own.
Edward_V, Jan 2022
Just go on your own with the museum audio guide. Don’t book this nonsense. The tour costs a pretty penny, so intuitively you would think it’s convenient, like the meeting place would be right outside of the Louvre for example at an easy to spot landmark 10 minutes early with someone to spot and walk in with. But that would just be intuitive. What actually happens is you are given very confusing instructions to meet 3 blocks away and outside of ANOTHER museum with its own own line and ticket booth. It takes you 10 minutes to get there from the main square of the louvre with the pyramid and longer to figure out what’s even going on. If you don’t figure out to meet at not-the-louvre location on time (3 minutes late), don’t worry. They just leave without you without reaching out first. And don’t try to call anyone or message someone for help because they won’t answer. They definitely won’t refund you either under any circumstances within 24 hours and they’ll say it’s because you paid for a ticket, but the Louvre is free on Tuesdays (the day I went) and regular admission is 17€ on any other day. So either I got a magical 62€ ticket per person or they’re just taking my money. No tour, no refund. To be honest just save the headache and money on these stupid tours and their phony “skip the line” ticket as there is almost never a line over 10 mins. The guided audio tour with headphones that the museum gives you for 5€ was really great and pretty much all you need to enjoy the otherwise amazing museum. Probably much

Nice option, we just didn’t like the audio app that they said that would be the same as the machine, but is not, cause it doesn’t have all the audios available through the museum. The rest was nice, fast, good cruise of more than one hour.
Must go

We found Napoleons apartment. That was a great time. We saw many works of great art and as everyone said, we didn’t have enough time to see a lot.

Sergio_S, Dec 2021
The tour equipment did not work. The instructions on the entrance and transport to the boat cruise were not clear. We did not make it in time for the cruise. Should not sell late entrance tickets since the time to the boat is too short.
Ingeborg_M, Dec 2021
The page says digital tickets accepted and mail says here are your tickets but you need to physically collect it then somewhere that is a building site , I went and could not find the office my phone was out of battery I do hope they have the decency to refund my tickets that were useless
Great museum but do not book via Viator
Julie_D, Dec 2021
When arriving at the Louvre, we were informed that we had to go pick up our tickets on a different location. This was not clearly stated on the voucher nor in the mails (it said ‘For all excursions departing from specific locations such as our Agencies, please come and check-in …’). On top of that we found out the audioguide we had paid for was not even the official one of the museum. This is truly unacceptable. Luckily the personnel of the museum were so helpfull to support on getting the tickets and provided us with a audioguide from the museum itself.

Ilire_K, Dec 2021
The booking was very unclear. We had to pick up our tickets at another location which wasn’t made clear and written in small writing. Never made it to the booking and didn’t even get a reply when I wrote to them to see where the meeting point was if we were late.
Worse experience
Faisal_A, Nov 2021
It was bad experience I did not find the place where to receive my tickets, then I just repurchased ticket from the louvre ticketing office Not recommended at all to buy it at Viator website, finally the children below 18 years is free of charge when you buy ticket directly from official louvre ticketing office where Viator is charging for kids ticket !!!!!! Unprofessional
It was awesome
silvia_r, Nov 2021
Overall a great experience even though the weather was lousy. Fantastic works of art and the architecture is humbling. Highly recommend this makes your bucket list.
Ali_F, Nov 2021
My husband and I bought tickets to the Louvre for yesterday afternoon. In the tiniest fine print french at the bottom of our ticket, there was something that said we had to go to an entirely new location miles away to actually pick them up. The ticket lady said she was so sorry and that we wouldn’t have time to go to pick up the tickets and make it all the way back before the museum closed in two and a half hours. She also said she had never heard of this company and that we overpaid for our tickets with them. So, my husband and I just bought new ones at the Museum and waisted our money with this company. It would have been helpful for the company to inform me of this, especially in English as all of the directions to purchase their tickets we’re in English. My husband and I were very disappointed with this company
