Skip the Line: Egyptian Antiquities Guided Tour at the Louvre Museum

Guided Visit of the Egyptian Antiquities in the Louvre Museum in Paris

The Louvre Museum in Paris boasts one of the most extensive collections of ancient Egyptian artifacts in the world, second only to that of Cairo. Choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your licensed guide near the Louvre in central Paris. Skip the notoriously long museum lines so you have more time to explore the historic treasures inside.

Follow your guide straight to the Egyptian antiquities sections, and feel the power and mystique of the civilization come alive through more than 5,000 artifacts that provide a glimpse into the daily and spiritual lives of ancient Egyptians. The massive collection could take days to fully explore, but your guide will reveal the most relevant and fascinating highlights. 

Learn about elaborate funerary rituals and ideas about the afterlife as you view carved stone sarcophagi, canopic jars, mummies and the Book of the Dead. Pay tribute to Egypt’s powerful pharaohs as you stand before massive sculptures, such as the Colossus of Akhenaton, and admire dazzling royal headdresses and jewelry. 

At the end of your 1.5-hour tour, continue exploring more of the Louvre’s treasures independently if you wish.

We were the only two in the group, and the guide was good. He had knowledge about the antiquities. He was helpful and skipping the line was the best part in the hot Paris Summer.

The tour guide never showed up and when I emailed the company to figure it out, they never responded. Even days after, they never responded to even apologize.
