Traveler Tips

It's not your tour guide's responsibility to wait for you and hold up precious time that eats into other tourists' punctuality.
Unless you have days to spend wandering the 38,000 pieces on display, skip the (really long) lines and see the art through Lilli's trained eyes.
Private tours are not cheap but it was an unforgettable experience and Taylor managed to bridge to our 12-year-old grand-daughter, as well as her mother and, of course, us her grand-parents.

Excellent and Informative and an equally amazing Guide.
Richard_L, Jan 2023
What made this tour extra special and worth it was the the guide Oliver. Without any great effort his friendly and personable attitude he was able to grasp the group’s attention throughout the tour by making simple but detailed, engaging and informative. His knowledge of the museum’s artwork was impeccable and one could see how much he enjoyed sharing of his knowledge with everyone in the group by taking the time to answer our questions and at times be patient with us; especially with me who often lagged behind as I often stood in awe staring and absorbed in amazement by the beauty of many of the pieces of artwork. I would definitely recommend this tour as it expanded my knowledge so much more beyond the little I already knew of some of the artwork on display and recommend no one better than Oliver as the perfect guide for this tour.

Daniel ,our guide,was very informative. I have previously visited the louvre on 2 occasions but gained much more knowledge from this visit.
Definitely take a lourve guided tour!
Rebecca_T, Jan 2023
Miriam was an excellent tour guide for the Lourve! She told us if you spent 1 min looking at every exhibit it would take over 2.5 months to complete. Even more relieved at this stage we had an expert guide to cover the key aspects with interesting stories to bring the art alive. Thank you! Jon and Rebecca
Highly Recommend This Fabulous Private Tour of the Louvre
Anna_S, Jan 2023
At first I didn't think a private tour of the Louvre would be worth the extra money. I couldn't have been happier to have been on a private tour with our guide Miriam. We entered the Louvre with ease following Miriams lead. Her knowledge of the museum was astonishing. She guided us from the beginning of history of the palace now museum through 3 hours of magical sightings. She showed us statues and art that most visitors would have missed. We saw the most important pieces for our first visit to the Louvre. This tour is a must for anyone seeing this magnificent museum for the first time. When I visit Paris again I will book Miriam again to explore more of the museum. I highly recommend a private tour and please ask for Miriam. She is really wonderful.
Had a great experience!

The guide was amazing! Eduardo was waiting at the spot. Very easy to find. Contacted the guide thru WhatsApp. He not only personalized the tour. He was very informative and flexible. His English was great too.
Best Tour Guide
Chris_M, Jan 2023
Anatole, Anatole, Anatole (our guide) was THE BEST! Literally the best tour guide in my travel life experience. His enthusiasm and knowledge were incredible, making the tour of the Louvre the best tour we took during our stay in Paris. I wish I could have stayed at the Louvre all day with him.
As hassle free as you can get
Sandra_S, Jan 2023
Barbara our guide was excellent. She made our trip very educational and we learned so much in lesser known corners of the museum while still seeing the main bucket list items.
Really enjoyed Napoleon’s...
Pam_H, Jan 2023
Really enjoyed Napoleon’s apartments and of course Mona Lisa. It would have been difficult seeing as much as we were able to without our guide.

Don’t miss out!
sherry_g, Jan 2023
Our tour guide, Jean, was fantastic! He brought to life the history of France verbally and pictorially. The Louve is massive, and it helped immensely to have an educated and passionate guide to share the intricacies of this breathtaking treasure with us!
Mayra_G, Jan 2023
Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!! That was our guide! I could listen to her all day! Her perspective about art made me look for detail and not “love the idea of what we are expected to love certain art because of the hipe! “ thank you Sunday
Best tour after 5 different European city tours in a row!
Ashton_T, Jan 2023
Our Guide James was the best tour guide in 3 countries and 5 cities. He made the Louvre come to life and gave us information we will not soon forget. Great pace throughout so many tours we found drug on too slowly. Could not recommend this tour more highly!

Group Tour
Cherie_W, Jan 2023
Our tour guide Eduardo was super congenial and also knowledgeable about the artwork as well as the Louvre itself. He took us through the exhibits in chronological order, and introduced story and legends behind the artworks. All in all very entertaining and informational.
