Strongly recommend purchasing the museum tickets with a designated guide. It will enhance your experience and you will be well informed after your tour. The feature of skipping the line is also a great idea since the queues may stretch on for hours inside. Opt for this tour if you're going to be touring without a group.

What a walk! Make sure you have your sports shoes on, lol! But jokes aside, you will learn far too many things on a guided tour of the Louvre. Something that we can't imagine on a regular walking tour with an audio guide. The guide is also patient and answers the silliest of your questions, making this an offer you won't regret. Go for it.

My family and I were visiting Paris for the first time and were anxious about missing out on the important exhibits of the Louvre. So, we opted for the guided tour that is available in five different languages. Great, but some areas need work. The guide didn't seem to want to explore other areas apart from the one we were exploring, also two hours seemed incredibly long without a break.
