I find Headout to be one of the best sites for booking tickets. They are quick and efficient.
The best part was the 'skip the line', we did not have to wait in a queue. Also, the Louvre Museum is beautiful.
Personally, I enjoyed the Seine River Cruise more than the museum. The art collection was without a doubt brilliant, but the cruise gives you a different perspective of the city.
