Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
The Louvre is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world. Once a Royal Palace, it was later converted into a public museum at the end of the French Revolution. Today, the Louvre houses one of the most expansive art collections in the world, with pieces from all time periods. Notably, the museum has pieces from the Egyptian civilization, the Mesopotamian civilization, the Greek and the Roman civilizations, along with pieces of Islamic art. A visit to the Louvre allows you to see all these art pieces, including Da Vinci’s most famous work – the Mona Lisa. If you enjoy history and classical art, then make sure your visit the Louvre at least once while you are in Paris.

I felt the guide was a bit hurried and we didn't get enough interaction with him.
I did a lot of search and Headout group tours had a good feedback and hence booked this one.
I liked best that this tour didn't have more than 10 people, usually you find 25 plus people so it was comfortable and could ask the guide questions.
