Traveler Tips


  • "It's not your tour guide's responsibility to wait for you and hold up precious time that eats into other tourists' punctuality." See review
  • "Unless you have days to spend wandering the 38,000 pieces on display, skip the (really long) lines and see the art through Lilli's trained eyes." See review
  • "Private tours are not cheap but it was an unforgettable experience and Taylor managed to bridge to our 12-year-old grand-daughter, as well as her mother and, of course, us her grand-parents." See review

The best tour through the Louvre
Brandon_B
, Nov 2021
We booked a semi private tour but were the only couple that showed up so we had a private tour. Our guide was fun, answered all our obscure questions, and gave us lots of facts and history while going through the museum. Since we had the rest of the day to explore the museum, he helped us plan our way through the rest of the museum. Very good trip!

Great experience, highly recommend to anyone looking to do the Louvre at your own pace.

The tour was great, definitely worth paying the extra to get the personal experience as I have done group tours before and they are just not as immersive. Our tour guide was Alex and he was amazing, he knew so much about the various pieces around the museum and was able to answer our questions. What we also enjoyed was his questions to ask. Making the experience more interactive and really tested our historical knowledge which was great. Alex also knew where to take great pictures and provided us with other recommendations for the rest of our trip, making the experience very personal. Definitely highly recommend this tour and I would do it again the next time I am back.

Nice experience, however, we couldn’t find Mona Lisa. I was really looking forward to meeting her. I do recommend to get a tour guide. It will go much smoother.

Lucia was an awesome guide. It would have taken hours to find the specific masterpieces we were looking for. We especially appreciated her expertise in pointing out the details and history. Highly recommend this tour!

The Best Way to Explore the Louvre!
Alyssa
, Nov 2021
We had a fabulous time with our guide, Eduardo! The tour started promptly as outlined and he escorted us to a side entrance with no wait (as promised!). He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and even personalized the tour after chatting with my partner and I, listening to some of our interests. If you’re looking for a stress free way to experience this expansive museum, look no further .. this is the way to go! You even have the chance to explore the Louvre by yourself even after the tour ends. Highly recommended and thank you, Eduardo for making our first visit a memorable one!! PS: make sure you wear comfy shoes! You’ll be on your feet for hours.
