Full description

Make the most of your time in Paris and beat the crowds with skip-the-line access to the Louvre; the world's biggest museum. On your 3-hour personalized tour, your guide will ensure your day at the Louvre is informative and efficient as you are led through a museum that would normally take weeks to cover.

The Louvre is so big that Louis XIV used to ride his horse up and down the Louvre's corridors! Learn about the history of the museum and, of course, the world-famous art on its walls including Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and Canova's Psyche and Cupid. Travel through time and look at art and artifacts dating from 450 B.C. right through to the 19th century.

Begin with the medieval foundations of the former royal residence, admire one the world’s most celebrated sculptures, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, and see the royal crowns of Napoleon and King Louis XV.

we had an amazing tour. our guide was so knowledgeable and explained the history behind everything we seen. it wasn't just the history but sharing different perspectives which we would have never thought of. if we go back, we will use the same tour company again. Thank you!!!!!

The Louvre is a lot busier place so you need a guide to prioritize the must see rooms and paintings. Florence was an amazing and knowledgeable guide that even though we are unable to see everything, she took us to the most important pieces and we learned new things every time. Fascinating history of the place and unbelievably priceless pieces. We had a wonderful time there.

Definitely recommend this tour. we picked the small group tour of less than 20 people. We received a head set and could hear everything our guide was saying. Catarina was so knowledgeable and made sure we saw all the key works of art. must be able to walk for 3 hours
