Traveler Tips

It's not your tour guide's responsibility to wait for you and hold up precious time that eats into other tourists' punctuality.
Unless you have days to spend wandering the 38,000 pieces on display, skip the (really long) lines and see the art through Lilli's trained eyes.
Private tours are not cheap but it was an unforgettable experience and Taylor managed to bridge to our 12-year-old grand-daughter, as well as her mother and, of course, us her grand-parents.

We had Alex as our Tour guide and he did an excellent job! Spending the time to explain the art in detail. Very knowledgeable. Took us through a great part of the museum as there is so much to see there. Highly recommend!
Louvre with 12 year old
Gretchen_R, Nov 2022
Valérie customized our tour to keep me 12 year old’s interest while also showing us several parts of the Louvre that my husband and I had never visited. Excellent!
Lisa_K, Nov 2022
Florent was a wonderful guide. He tailored the tour a bit for our 10-year old daughter, which everyone enjoyed very much.
Liked the Louvre
Timothy_S, Nov 2022
Our guide, Florent, was outstanding. We learned a great deal of history as well as seeing the museum highlights.
Soo big

I loved the decor in Napoleon’s apartment. Davincis art is stunning. The sheer size of the Louvre was overwhelming you really need a week in here just to soak all the art in
Michele is a wonderful guide.
Bob_R, Nov 2022
Michele was a great guide. He did a great job as the tour guide and my kids loved him. Michele made the tour the highlight of our trip to France.
Best way to view the Louvre
Douglas_L, Nov 2022
Dunya helped focus the tour to highlights of the Louvre while still giving a good overview of the art and building itself. Group size is perfect, easy for as all to gather around guide and hear her, and small enough to feel like a private tour at a lower cost.
Fun and informative
JAEHA_L, Nov 2022
We had a great time doing this tour! Our tour guide Malaika was nice and very knowlegeable. She taught us a lot about important artworks and explained the meaning behind them. It was fun and informative!
The Louvre in a nutshell
Anisio_S, Nov 2022
Our wonderful guide, Liliya, gave us a great overview of the Louvre. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. It felt like a good friend was showing us around their own house.
Great way to see the highlights!
Monique_M, Nov 2022
The Louvre is a huge museum, so going through with a guide to focus on the main pieces was very beneficial. Emma provided the right level of detail for our family and shared interesting information along the way. Great experience if you’re looking to see the highlights in a couple of hours. Maybe it was because we were starving, but the sandwich at the Louvre was one of the best we’ve ever eaten!
Me and my wife had the...

Sean communicated very well and made the meeting location simple and easy to enter the Louvre he is a knowledgeable professional and made it quick and easy for entry. Such a fun and educational experience. Solid 2.5+ hour tour and time left at end to explore on your own. We did the small group tour and met some kind people and felt very personal. Excellent communication.
Louvre family tour

Marcel told the stories behind the masterpieces. His extensive knowledge of art history helped bring paintings to life and understand their true meaning.
Karol_D, Nov 2022
Our tour guide Sean was amazing! His knowledge of the museum and its history was evident. He explained facts in an easy to understand manner and made it fun and interesting. He answered all of our questions and went out of his way to show us specific things that peaked our interest. Definitely worthwhile!!
Worth the booking
Joseph_F, Nov 2022
My wife and I had a great experience with Malaika. You can tell she LOVES what she does. She was very knowledgable and a joy to be around walking through Louvre with her. We enjoyed the fine details she shared throughout our tours. Thankfully we went the day of a strike so we didn't have to wait in line as our tour guide, Malaika, mentioned Louvre changed their process so no tours receive early entry.
Nice, needs more of an overview and structure
Sharn_K, Nov 2022
Emma was nice, but I felt like the tour was not what we expected or wanted. We did not get an overview or real understanding of what we were seeing. It was very disjointed. I recommend she provide an overview of the museum and then tell us what we will be looking at before proceeding.
Loved Guided Visit to the Louvre
Jenniferor_N, Nov 2022
A great experience to see the highlights of the Louvre with a guide! Absolutely recommend it, as you receive so much more on a guided tour than going it alone.
Great way to visit the Louvre
Chad_D, Nov 2022
Our guide, Julien, for our semi-private tour was great. The Louvre is huge and he was able to get us around to see a lot of the art. Very informative. This tour is great to navigate around and see the high points of the museum! Definitely recommend.
Incredible tour guide
Jeff_M, Nov 2022
My adult daughter and I booked a semi-private tour of The Louvre and we both can’t say enough about our tour guide, Lili! She connected all the highlighted art with history and stories, ending with the Mona Lisa. Probably the best tour I’ve been on.
