    Meet Your Guide at the Louvre and Enter the Museum with Priority Access

    Skip the long lines and head straight into the museum with an expert local guide and a group consisting of fewer than 20 people. Since the Louvre features over 35,000 unique works of art, it is impossible to see all its exhibits in an entire week, let alone a day. This tour is carefully planned to ensure that you get an opportunity to see all the major attractions in less than two hours, making it one of the most efficient ways to explore the museum if you lack the time.

    Witness the Louvre’s Most Brilliant Exhibits

    Follow your guide through the galleries of the French painters from the romantic era and the Classic Greek art rooms. Here, you will see paintings like ‘Victory Leading the People’ by Delacroix and ‘The Raft of the Medusa’ by Gericault. You will also see Leonardo da Vinci’s exquisite Mona Lisa, the sculptures by Michelangelo and Canoca, and the French Jewels as you tour the museum. Your guide will give you interesting insights about these works of art that you would have potentially missed on a non-guided tour of the museum. Learn about the worker who once single-handedly stole the Mona Lisa and how the story of a shipwreck in a French newspaper became a famous painting!

    Admire and Learn More about the Louvre Itself

    Originally built as a defensive structure, the Louvre was once restricted to the French royalty and its guests. As you walk through the old galleries, your guide will take you on a journey through the lavish lives of kings and queens who hosted balls and grand parties in the interiors of the Louvre.

    Note: All sites in Paris that we visit during our tours require guests and guides alike to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test (conducted within the past 48-hours) for entry. You can read more about this on the French Government website. If you have any questions regarding your tour, please reach out to us prior to the schedule and we can help answer any questions you may have.
