What You Can Expect

Skip-the-Line Louvre Museum Tour and Montmartre Sightseeing with Funicular Ride

Enjoy skp-the-line entry to the famous Louvre Museum

Your half-day tour starts at a central location in Paris, where you’ll meet your guide and board your coach or minibus. Head north to Montmartre in the 18th arrondissement, and walk around this lively and charming quarter with your guide.

Learn about Montmartre’s rich history, which dates back many centuries and includes the era when artists like Monet, Dalí, Picasso and Van Gogh lived, worked and socialized here. Hop on the funicular to ride up to the top of the hill, where you can admire a panoramic view over the city. Then head inside Basilique du Sacré-Coeur, known for its Romanesque and Byzantine architecture. You have time to explore the basilica on your own before returning to the bus for the drive to the Louvre.  

When you arrive, cruise past the ticket queue with your skip-the-line admission, and follow your guide along the esteemed hallways of this world-renowned museum. See its best-known pieces such as the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci and Venus de Milo, an ancient Greek statue, and marvel at other works such as Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People and Géricault's The Raft of the Medusa.

When your guided tour of the Louvre ends, you are free to stay at the museum on your own to continue exploring its treasures, or return to your original departure point on the tour bus. (Note: On Wednesdays and Fridays, the Louvre is open later; on these days, it is possible to stay until 9:45pm at no additional charge).

Best tour I took in Paris. Our tour guide was wonderfully informative and took us to some interesting sites of Montmartre. The Louvre tour hit the main highlights. No line to wait in we walked right in. We booked the tour for a Friday. The Louvre closes at 9:45 pm on Fridays, so after the guided portion of the tour was over, we had time to explore on our own for a few hours.

We started with the tour of Montmartre and heard lots of interesting facts from our guide, Jean Louis. The funicular ride is a must especially for people who will be challenged by the uphill climb to the Basilica Sacre Coeur. Next, was our Louvre Museum tour which Jean Louie expertly navigated and pointed out the most important artworks. We will never forget Jean Louie he is very engaging and animated and made the whole tour fun. It was a plus to take this tour on a Friday since the museum closes late and you can stay longer after the tour if one wishes.

This was an excellent tour. Our guide made the event fun and told us a lot about the artists where they lived etc.We got to spend a lot of time at the Louvre after the tour was over and explore it on our own.

The tour was very well organized and our tour guide was very knowledgable. Having a tour guide, particularly in the Louvre was a huge benefit, not to mention the skip the line feature! I would highly recommend this package and make sure you go on a night that the Louvre is open later so you can stay on your own after the guided tour and explore more!

Great tour, guide was very informative and full of knowledge regarding the village! I was very impressed and excited. The vendor should advise that this isn't for people that can't walk up a hill or steep street. We had a woman that couldn't do the full tour.

Really a very nice combination tour, I would have liked to see the inside of the basilica with a skip the line entrance there as well. As it was there was not enough time to see inside with how long the wait was. But still a very nice tour, my guide was knowledgeable and had a fresh way of delivering information to keep things interesting. I would suggest to anyone to take the tour on a Friday when the Louvre is open later so you can wander and marvel to your hearts content.

Great tour, lots to see and great access to the Louvre. The tour guides did not make any effort to interact with the group though, they just seemed to run through their script.
