5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2018

The only way to see the Louvre is with a skip the line ticket. Even being there in March which is not considered peak season the line to get in without skip the line was 2 hours if I had to guess. The Louvre is so huge that it can be overwhelming and this is where a guide comes in handy. He was very knowledgeable and took us to all the main attractions including the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo. The tour was approximately 3 hours long and you have the option to stay in the Louvre after the guided tour is over.

Excellent guide Nati who is very experienced and passionate about the Louvre and it's works. 3 hours passes by without you knowing, and it's so nice to be guided around the Louvre rather than tackle it yourself. The crowds are insane though, esp around the Mona Lisa. Thank you!

Leonor covered a lot of ground. She didn’t bring her umbrella since she “didn’t feel like it” and it made it difficult to find her at times, she did however wait for the group. It was informative and skipping the line worked well.

A wonderful way to see the Louvre. We spent the morning with the guide seeing some of the outstanding artwork in the Louvre. It was great not having to go through the long line at the entrance. After the tour we had lunch in the Louvre cafeteria and then spent the afternoon visiting other parts of the museum on our own seeing other art that was of interest to us.

This tour was amazing!

If you visit during any of the busier tourism months Apr-Aug I highly recommend a skip the line tour as it takes almost an hour at peak times just to get tickets and thru security. Great tour, well worth it!

I was scheduled to attend a conference in Venice in September, and I purposely left a few days open at the end for a quick trip to Paris! Given the short stay, I needed a quick way to see the most memorable parts of the Louvre. This tour provided that and then some! The tour guide possessed a great deal of knowledge about art, and she knew exactly where to go. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is short on time, or who would like to see the highlights and then browse on their own.

The Louvre tour was very nice with access to the artwork of interest with very good background information provided by the guide. The skip the line was really beneficial here. Nicely done and well organized tour.
