Admire the stunning Winged Victory of Samothrace

Your 3-hour journey through some of the world’s great artistic treasures begins at the Arc du Carrousel, next to the Louvre entrance. Choose a morning, afternoon or evening tour and meet your English-speaking guide. Enjoy fast access to the museum with your skip-the-line pass and begin your tour through the massive venue, home to over 35,000 works of art spanning more than 73,000 square meters of exhibition space. Your entrance pass also provides complimentary audio headsets.  

Wander the diverse exhibitions, starting with the Ancient Greek Parthenon, followed by the iconic Venus de Milo.

Get a taste of the French Revolution with Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People, and take in the Italian Renaissance as you gaze at the work of Michelangelo and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. (See full sample list below.)

With your small group (limited to 25 people), engage in lively chats with your guide and hear entertaining anecdotes, trivia and history. Afterward, spend as much time as you like exploring the museum independently.

This was a great way to see the Louvre. The guide was both knowledgeable about history and art. At the end of the tour there was time
to explore on your own.

Excellent tour. Carine showed us the highlights and was very well informed. It is obvious that she has a passion for art and the Mona Lisa in particular. Everything was well organized and it was easy going through security. I would highly recommend!

met the guide exactly where they said they would be. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to help move us around which was great because the crowds were huge. I thought we were getting a skip the line viewing of the Mona Lisa Like we did for the Last Supper but NO, we were in the room with hundreds of people having to fight to get near it. Very disappointing also I wish we had been given some time to explore the other art in the room. overall we saw the Major pieces but not much more. Still worth it.

Thank you Thierry Heil for the most wonderful tour of the Louvre! What's there not to love about the Louvre Museum. I could have spent days in there. With this three plus hour tour and the group size of six - the experience was the best. Thierry a master in history and knowledge with a perfect balance of humor. If you have a chance to request this guide you will be pleased! Thank you again for a wonderful tour!

Loved this tour and our guide Violet. Being Easter weekend it was packed! Violet made sure we were as comfortable as we could be with the crowds. Her knowledge of art and history were impressive! Hit the highlights and a few that I didn't know were highlights but would now recommend as a must see.! Violet also provided information on how to use our time in Paris wisely....where to go when, how to get there etc! Would highly recommend!!!!
