Your magical evening excursion begins at the Arc du Carrousel, next to the Louvre entrance, where you’ll meet your English-speaking guide.

We attended a Friday night tour, which was a wonderful time to visit the Louvre. No crowds, even in the salon with the Mona Lisa. Our guide Rafaela was energetic and entertaining, providing knowledgeable perspectives on some of the Louvre's key masterpieces. And the wine tasting after? A brilliant way to finish the evening. Our only recommendation: make sure you have dinner before the evening tour, since you likely will want to hang around after the wine tasting well beyond closing time for most Paris restaurants.

The museum is beautiful at night....and less crowded, too. Our guide, Clair M., was fantastic....lots of knowledge and very passionate about the museum and the artwork.
The wine tasting made for a nice ending!

Best time to go to the Louvre-no crowds and really interesting information given to us from our guide. She knew a lot of interesting stories and found the best way to get the most from our short visit. The wine tasting and education at the Wine Cave was great. The wine was superb and the understanding of French wines and the areas of France involved was very helpful.

Taking the tour later in the day with a guide is the best way to see the Louvre. Plus she let us know to use the facilities before entering the Louvre as they charge 2 Euro to use the facilities! Our guide was very informative and was able to answer all questions plus keep the tour moving. Of course everyone wants to see the Mona Lisa but was also impressed with the Venus de Milo, Liberty Leading the People by Eugene, and most importantly The Apollo Gallery. After 2.5 hours I was more than ready for the wine tasting. The server was excellent and a perfect ending of a taste of Paris.

Excellent. We were so fortunate to have Carolyn - and due to the groupings, shared her with only another couple. She was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. Without her, we would have been lost in the cavernous halls of the Louvre. Wish she could have stayed for the wine tasting. We will recommend this tour to others. The wine tastings were excellent, with good selections and knowledgeable sommelier. The location in Louis XV's wine caves couldn't be beat. The sommelier gave us a great location for a follow-on wine experience that evening.

Wonderful! Our guide was excellent- instead of just pointing out each piece that we were viewing he took the time to discuss various details of the work and to engage everyone. I felt this allowed everyone to have an experience with each piece instead of just a glance. The wine tasting after the tour was the perfect end to the evening.

Our guide made this very enjoyable. I have Ben to the Louvre before but this was a more rewarding experience because of the information Claire provided. Highly recommend this tour.

The Louvre tour with the wine tasting was a solid tour. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. She showed us all the important works of art and provided explanations of the interesting facts that makes the art even more interesting. Our tour had a serious issue with three of the guest and the tour guide handled it the best she could. It wasnt smooth for the rest of the guest, but it was understandable. The Louvre was awesome what else can you say.
The wine tasting was a real treat, especially with the snafu we experienced during the tour. The man who provided the wine tasting was super funny and made the tasting so fun, while providing great information. It really was a lot of fun.

This was a great tour, our guide Joshua was great with his knowledge of the Louvre and his stories on paintings and sculpture, in which he got the group involved. Pleasure of this was Joshua got us to the main exhibits without issue and quickly. Wine tasting was very good and complemented with a tasty platter. Really enjoyable night.
