A must if you are visiting during summer, so crowded everywhere! Our guide did a great job despite the large crowds. I also have to give this tour group kudos for breaking us up into small groups, very nice. We totaled 6 which made it easy to hear and move around.

A great guide makes all the difference in the world, and our was awesome! His knowledge of art and French history made the experience incredible, and he knew the museum layout like the back of his hand so we moved through the building easily and quickly. Skip the line is the way to go because the crowds are massive at the Louvre. Thanks!

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job of navigating this very large museum. It was worth the price to have someone experienced take us through the museum and give us all the details of the different pieces. just a warning the Louvre is a mad house in August.

My daughter and I met our guide, and only one other student joined our tour. Easy meeting point, quick entrance into Louvre (as we walked past 100's in line). She did an excellent job of covering the highlights, explaining the history of the Louvre, and even a general tour of all that is available to see as we walked on our own. Excellent.

The tour is for about 3 hours. You get to see all the highlights of the Louvre museum with a personal guide . There is a lot to do in paris and if you have only little time, I would definitely recommend this. Obviously you can spend days exploring Louvre museum on your own if that fits your itenary . Know that with tours like these you get limited time at each of the highlight . You can always come back to it. But if you are interested in some specific attractions and want to spend a lot more time on that , then you should explore on your own .

Taking an after hours tour on the day the Louvre stays open late is great. Don't be fooled, it is still busy at the museum. We took the tour in August. The best part is having a guide to explain the paintings and sculptures. Our guide, Anastasia, was so informative. She knew her art history. She was enthusiastic and very informative. The museum is so large, that it is good to have someone take you around to the key exhibits. Highly recommend booking this tour, you will not be disappointed!

This is the most expeditious way to get inside the Louve. Used quite a few times and I still recommend.

Give this girl a raise!
There is no way we could of experienced and saw what we did without Anastasia! She was incredibly knowledgeable and made our experience super interesting and fun. She even went above and beyond by helping us get on the right train at the end of the night. Thank you for being so wonderful!

Our tour was great. Unfortunately, there is too little time to see everything one would want to see at the Louvre, and it is very crowded and hot. Our tour guide was excellent and had great insight into the history and art displayed at the Louvre. I would definitively recommend this tour and hope you get the guide we had!

Our guide, Felix, was simply the best! This was our second time to visit the Louvre but Felix set the bar high and made it an enjoyable and unforgettable experience. His take on the famous pieces was superb. It was like sitting through a humanities class. Thank you Felix! Thank you Viator!
