Description

Visit the Louvre Museum’s must-see attractions and discover under-appreciated treasures in this semi-private comprehensive tour. Skip-the-Line access gives you more time to absorb all that the massive museum has to offer.

Your expert guide will share their passion for the collection, unveiling subtle details most visitors never learn about the works of art on show.

The ‘Mona Lisa’; the ‘Venus de Milo’; the ‘Winged Victory of Samothrace’. While they’re familiar the world over, no one can truly know these works without spending time in their presence. Your guide will explain their history, but only you can decide how these masterpieces make you feel.

Often overshadowed by the famous highlights, but no less significant as works of art, the tour features antiquities like the 4,000-year-old ‘Great Sphinx of Tanis’, other recognisable works by Da Vinci and Raphael, and highlights of the French Romantic period. Learn what people get wrong about Delacroix’s ‘Liberty Leading the People’ and decode the message of hope in Géricault's ‘Raft of the Medusa’. Sculptures by Michelangelo and Canova add another dimension to the experience.

Continue on to the Apollo Gallery, which houses the ornate royal crowns of Napoleon and King Louis XV and be riveted by the valiant tales of these inimitable leaders.

After the tour, you can continue exploring the Louvre. Revisit earlier stops armed with new knowledge or embark on your own journey of discovery.

This tour is specifically crafted to respect safety measures and social distancing. Wearing masks is mandatory inside the museum for all visitors from the age of 11, customers are requested to bring their own mask to the meeting point or access will be denied.

I cant say enough great things about our tour guide "Daniel the Irish Guy". He was so knowledgable about the pieces he showed us and really explained the history behind it. This made the tour so much better to know what I was looking at and the meaning behind it. Plus he was hilarious!!! A museum tour could be pretty dry but he kept it upbeat and fun. My mom has some mobility issues and he took the time to make sure she was keeping up and have her chances to sit when he could. Great tour and outstanding guide!

Amazing tour. Our guide, Alex, was super knowledgeable with a wonderful dry witty sense of Humor that I thoroughly enjoyed. He clearly knew a lot about the museum and the art and was open and honest when he didn’t know about a piece, which I appreciate it rather than making something up. At the end of our tour we had gone long and the museum started announcing they were closing. Alex could have easily ended the tour right there. Instead he said, “cmon we gotta hurry, there’s still one more thing I want to show you.” And we raced across the museum as he convinced the staff to let us through because he wanted to make sure we had a great experience. He could have just taken us back to the exit and it still would have gotten 5 stars from me, but he enjoys his job so much and wants to make the experience so good he went well beyond expectations and we got to see Napoléon IIIs apartment and it was beautiful. Great experience and ask for Alex if you can!
