Our tour guide I can't remember his name, it might've been David or Alexander was wonderful. He gave us an in depth tour of the museum, hitting the highlights, and also showing us some of the equally amazing but lesser known works of art. He made the experience 100 worth it.
This was a lovely tour with a very engaging tour guide. She was very informative and gave us so much to see throughout the walking tour. There was a lot to see at the Louvre, but i didnt feel like i missed out on a lot of the exhibits. We covered a good number of artwork, without feeling like we barely spent time appreciating it.
BTW: when you do get to the Mona Lisa, please remember to turn around. The floor to ceiling / wall to wall painting is so much more awe inspiring! you wont regret it!
this tour was AMAZING! Our guide, Raphael, knew everything there is to know about art and the history of the Louvre. She was exceptional in helping us beat the crowds, and showing us the true highlights of the museum. For any first time visitors, this tour is a MUST! I can't wait to go back and do it again!
Fantastic! Our tour guide was on time knowledgeable and interesting. We highly recommend this tour
We entered through a separate entrance from the general public and avoided the very long lines. The guide was very knowledgeable and she explained very well about the notable works of art in the museum. So may people were crowding and having their pictures taken with the Mona Lisa. This tour is a must do in Paris.
This tour had the best guide I have experienced during my trip to Paris. I wish I could remember her name so that I could praise her more personally. She was not only extremely knowledgeable and articulate, but also attentive, kind and responsible. When I asked about a particular painting which was not included in the tour, she knew exactly where it was, and gave me a map and clear instructions on how to locate it.
Our guide made this tour fascinating and interesting. The tour gets you past the very long lines waiting to buy a ticket and immediately gets you into the museum. Because the Louvre is so large with thousands of paintings, sculptures and artifacts, this tour had to curate the experience down to a few hours. Our guide had a strong knowledge of history and the artwork itself. She was able to tell us the meaning of certain colors used, the political or personal events that influenced the painter and point out clever statements the artist may have painted into the picture. This tour includes the highlights of the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo, but because of our guide, I was able to appreciate all of the artwork as unique! I would highly recommend this tour to a friend.
The guide is very professional and glad that we arrived on Wednesday and could enjoy Louvre till 9pm - thanks for the tips!
This was amazing. The tour guide was extremely informative and directed us to the major sites since we only had a 3 hour window to see the Louvre. She explained the highlights of the paintings, statues and artifacts as we weaved past the lines and the crowds. We really enjoyed the tour and find Viator provides excellent people to guide the tours. We will definitely use there services again.
Amazing tour of the Castle and grounds. Recommend this tour by far!
best way to visit this wonderful museum. The guide Vilolet was very knowledgeable, and she made the visit highly enjoyable.
Make the most of your visit to the Louvre and book this tour! Our guide Catherine was fabulous. I learned so much.
Katherine was extremely informative and knowledgeable. You could tell she loved sharing the history of the Louvre.
Our guide made this trip a 6-star. She was a former history teacher, making this a perfect fit for our kids 7 and 11. She knew exactly how to keep our kids engaged in the museum by looking for THIS or THAT in certain paintings. Our group was small and she welcomed questions. The museum is HUGE, so this was a great way to see the highlights, then wander on our own.
Highly recommend if you don't have a full day to spare. The tour hit everything that was on our list as a must. We also enjoyed that we had the option to stay after the tour ended in case we wanted to see other exhibits. Because it was only a 3 hour tour it was very high paced but our guide allowed for pictures and Q and A time at each stop. Our guide was exceptional and very knowledgeable in history.
Loved this tour..! The night tour was great as there was less people in the museum and we were able to move around easily. Our guide was fabulous..! Highly recommend this tour..!
Emily was our guide and she was great. She had a tremendous amount of knowledge regarding all of the pieces we saw. I cant say enough about how pleasant she was/
The ONLY way to see the Louvre. Our guide knew her stuff, took us to a few out of the ordinary areas, Not being overwhelmed by the crowds was the BEST.
Fantastic tour! I am one of the people that has gone to the louvre many times and saw little because I always got lost! I learned so much about the art, sculptures, and apartments of Napoleon the third. Recommend this tour to everyone
Definitely skip the line otherwise you are in for a long wait . Our guide was very knowledgeable. Would recommend this tour .

Our tour guide met us as planned and she was very nice and informative. You could spend weeks in the Louvre but we were very happy with our experience. Going there in November the off season, we had no trouble seeing the various pieces of art. We walked right up to the Mona Lisa at least as far as we were allowed to go. The Louvre is a must see!
We had a wonderful and knowledgeable guidance, Caroline. She kept the group moving so being with 20 others wasn't bad. There are a lot of stairs so just be aware of that.
Loved the Louvre! Our guide was very knowledgable, you could spend days here.
