The entrance to the museum was smooth, however we arrived at very busy times and were not able to enjoy it that much. The Seine river cruise was great, the ships are very large and there is good guidance.

Worth it if you forgot to book tickets in advance! We enjoyed!

We realized the night before that neither of us had booked louvre tickets. We had limited time in Paris, so we didn’t want to risk waiting in a long queue. This louvre + boat tour package had good reviews (the bad ones only seemed to say they didn’t like the louvre itself), so we booked the next morning for 11am. My confirmation message said there was a problem generating tickets and that an attendant would look me up by name. No problems with this at all- in fact, I think they might do it on purpose because the three agents at the ticket location (working like heck and helping everyone in a speedy fashion!) could look up names on a paper list faster than ringing everyone in through computer. The ticket pick-up location was easy to find. It’s just barely down rue de pyramids, just down a bit from a fancy looking bistro that’s a very clear landmark. The agents were helpful and answered all questions. Their directions for where to go to skip the line, and later where to go for the boat tour, were clear and accurate. The louvre itself is amazing but overwhelming. Don’t be afraid to ask for directions (the attendants wear orange lanyards), by room number is easier if you know it as there are too many pieces for most workers to memorize. The boat tour does not have to be taken the same day. Its Bateau Parisien at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. It was actually really nice! There is lots of architecture to see and many people on the shore to people-watch. We sat in the booths on the lower deck and then went and stood on the lower balcony. The breeze from the moving boat was beautiful and it’s just a nice experience. In my opinion, don’t bother with the audio tour. The announcer points out important landmarks anyway, and the recorded audio is just a bit silly. Just enjoy the sights and being on the water.

The museum was incredible - there’s so much to see and look at that it’s impossible to complete it all in one day. The river cruise was lovely as well, a nice chilled boat ride that showed us the main landmarks in Paris.

The address leads you believe that where you pick up your ticket is is the same as the address shown on the ticket. It is about five store fronts down.

This was a good tour. We liked that we were able to explore the museum on our own, and the included boat ride was nice. I would recommend getting there early because it was difficult to find the meeting points and entrances. The boat ride was crowded, but worth it!

I couldn't find any tickets for the Louvre till the afternoon. Then I found these 10.00am, I arrived at the office at 9.15 am. The staff were great they advised I could go at 9.30 am. I got there 9.20am straight in no crowd no waiting, perfect. Mega crowds in the normal entrance, would recommend 100%.

I would say visiting the Louve was one of the worst travel experiences ever!!!you are crammed in with literally 100s of thousands people Viewing the mona lisa for example is far more satisfying in an art book Literally couldn't get closer than 100 to 200cfeet away If its important for you to say you've seen the originals, go for it Otherwise dont bother!!!

Unfortunately, there were mobs of other tourists—an unavoidable fact in July. It was difficult to social distance or avoid coughing! But the Louvre is the Louvre — so wonderful!

I could not pull up the tickets. I kept getting an error message. Help was no help at all. I was at the Louvre locked out, upset and highly disappointed. I hope to get a refund. Thanks for the tease...

Ticket error need refund
Bricie_T

I booked a ticket to the Louvre for July 4th. The email confirmation showed the right date but when they printed my ticket it apparently had a different date. It was about 3 hours before it closed. By the time I made it through security, an hour had gone by. They wouldn’t exchange my ticket at ticket assistance inside the museum. So I had to walk back to where I picked up my ticket and ask for a refund, because by the time I would get back, I’d have maybe an hour to do the whole museum which is not enough time. She told me I need to contact viator for my refund which I plan on doing.

Louvre Museum is Awesome !

The Louvre Museum was one of the best site we went to on this trip to Paris. The artwork are wonderful and there was a line to view the "Mona Lisa". The line move along quickly and everyone was able to take pictures within 10 to 15 minutes.
