we were very happy to have someone show us around and not have to find things on our own. plus the knowledge of the paintings and ...architecture of the louvre was impressive. more

Jennifer

Our guide was delightful, knowledgeable and very fluent in English. She was great!!

Laurence

It was the perfect way to see the Louvre without getting overwhelmed.

Deborah

This was a wonderful way to see some real highlights at the Louvre more efficiently than if you were trying to find them yourself!... Plus, missing the long lineups was good. The headsets worked well and the guide was knowledgeable. more

Elizabeth

It was a fantastic tour if you don't have slot of time in Paris. We had a nice lunch there and went back by ourselves to do s...ome more. more

Narelle

It will take you 4 months to see all the exhibits in the Louvre if you spend just one minute on each. The highlight of the Louvre ...is undoubtedly Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, the most photographed lady in the world. more

Kah Kay

Our guide was most knowledgeable and very interesting to listen to. She inspired a more active interest in art for me. 2 1/2 hours... is long, so be prepared. It would have been nice to have a coffee break inbetween, but I realise that it's impractical! more

Zsuzsa

My guide was excellent. Viator can learn from you'll.

Terry

First time to the Louvre....awesome tour, got to see the highlights, the tour guide was very knowlegable and people friendly. I wo...uld highly recommend this tour. The pretour experience (finding the polace, getting our tickets, meeting the guide, getting instructions) was first rate. Thank you very much for this experience. more

Alfred

We couldn't have appreciated the Louvre without the wonderful experience and expertise of our guide. So much to see and heari...ng the history behind many of the more famous sculpture/paintings was very interesting. more

Karen

This tour was very nice. the Louvre is beautiful and we had a great guide. I forgot her name but she was very pleasant and knew ...a lot about the Louvre and the history of France. We really enjoyed it especially seeing the Mona Lisa. more

Lissette

To have a guided tour around the Louvre was excellent value for money. None of our group are into art at all, and lets face it, yo...u cant go to Paris and not visit the Louvre, so rather than wondering around aimlessly, we decided to have a guided tour which gave so much meaning to what we were looking at. The guide was so knowledgeable, and entertaining. He made the tour what could easily have been so very boring, both fascinating and interesting. We loved it, and would highly recommend the tour. more

Anita

excelent, fast and easy.

Andres

This tour is a MUST-DO!! The tour guide has such an amazing knowledge of art history - she is great. She showed us so much more ...than just the major pieces. Even the kids loved it and didnt mind all of the walking. more

Caroline

As the Louvre is so huge, we really appreciated the focus on key painting and artefacts, rather than trying to rush through too ma...ny floors and wings. Our guide was delightful, very knowledgable and friendly. The skip the queue is essential to making the best use of limited time. more

Rae-Anne

This was in ideal way to see most of the major sites in the Louvre without having to navigate around the massive complex with a ma...p and try to fight the crowds at the same time. We also maximized our day and visit by not waiting in the queue and seeing the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo with the guide. After the 2.5 hour tour we were able to stay longer and visit other exhibits on our own. Our guide was knowledgeable and helped us with strategy to plan the sites we wanted to see on our own. He also explained very interesting details about the art so people with an art background or people with no knowledge of art can understand and connect with the pieces. Highly recommended and worth the money. more

Karen

Thisis for the Eiffel Tower tour which was excellant *** was great. The Louvre tour was disaster from start to finish with *** and... only gets 2 stars more

Elaine

It was a great tour with a fantastic Guide, everything we wanted to see we did and all questions were answered fully.
We ate...
in the restaurant inside the museum and that was very good too.
Overall the tour was very very good value for money, with an exceptionally good guide.
If I could award more stars I definitely would 10/10 xx
more

Andrew

Our guide was outstanding. I don't recall her name, but she was the guide on the 9:30 English language tour on Wednesday, Ap...ril 12. Extremely knowledgeable and was able to explain in a meaningful way the intricacies of the art and artist. more

Gerald

Georgia was amazing!!!!!! I did about 7 tours between Paris and Rome and she was the best!!!

Cristhian

I really enjoyed the tour, we only had a few hours to tour the louvre and this was the best way to hit the major points and learn ...a lot in the process. We would have been so lost on our own. Our guide was friendly and very funny. Thanks! more

Shari

The guide who accompanied us was very knowledgeable and well informed. Also, he was a very pleasant and cheerful person and we enj...oyed our louvre tour. more

PREMA

The guide was extremely knowledgeable but it was very hard to hear everything he said because of other groups close by - would be ...improved by use of individual headphone sets - otherwise thought it was just as I expected. Order of exhibits great - especially Mona Lisa last! more

Heldi

The guide was excellent & we enjoyed the tour immensely

Philip

The tour was really good. It showed you all the must see items in the Louvre.

Miranda

the guide was very knowledgable but we saw very little thing because of the sizeof the museum and the amount of pieces. The tour c...ould be broken down int specifics such as Greece masterpieces. roman masterpieces, the renaisance masterpieces egypt etc. more

German

your tour guide was charming and knowledgable...what a privilege to see the Louvre many times

hilary

In two hours you see the most important things. It's a bit stressful, but after you have time to walk around by yourself. It&...#039;s worth booking in advance. The queue is horrible. We wanted to have translation in German. Unfortunately, there was only English available for us. more

Marcel

We enjoyed the tour, as it suited our needs. We had 2 small children who could not withstand the longer tours. The tour guide wa...s helpful and knowledgeable. The only downside to the experience was the difficulty in finding the City Discovery office.

more

Lisa

Felt a bit long in places, but with such a HUGE Museum, that's to be expected... The guide was really great, and I really enj...oyed seeing the Mona Lisa in person... Thoroughly enjoyed it! more

Iain

This was a highlight tour and we did indeed see all the headliners. The guide had problems with her audio system and had to hand ...hold it the entire time but she managed quite well. If you only have a few hours to see the Louvre, this is the tour! more

Sheila

Very informative and our guide was extremely knowledgeable.

Nancy

It's a good way to get into the Louvre and find your way around. The guide also gave a bit of an art lesson as she took the g...roup through the galleries. This was quite helpful. more

Heather

Anne was a wonderful funny informative guide and the best I had in the whole of my France trip.

Cameron

Anne was a wonderful funny informative guide and the best I had in the whole of my France trip.

Cameron

made visiting the Louvre much easier

Berris

What a great thing to skip that incredibly long line... Our guide Louis was very considerate, a great guy with extraordinary deep ...knowledge regarding the pieces of art and the Louvre building itself. more

Lisa

tour itself was very good.
What needs to be improved is : exact explanation of meetingpoint .Also confusing and not clear w...
as the aspect of what to do with bags and umbrellas.Openingtime of the museum and meetingtime of the tour was conflicting.Ohterwise very good tour.Thank you more

mary

Excellent

Robert

A great way to see as much of the louvre in a short space of time. Very interesting

Debra

Guide was knowledgeable and accommodating. the highlights were covered. but i feel that it could have been extended a bit more wit...h the fees paid. more

JODELIZA

An informed visit, but sadly the guides microphone was inefficient.
Interesting to hear the history of the Louvre.
...
It is so large that it needs several visits to enjoy it properly more

HJB

There were issues with headphones for many people which had a negative impact since they couldnt follow along. The tour guide was ...very good. my suggestion is that somehow you acquire your own headphones that can be pre-tested for the tours and charge more to cover them if necessary. more

Grace

The tour itself was great..our guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. We were disappointed in the Louvre when we realized... that most of the artifacts were pillaged by napoleon from Athens , Rome, Egypt and elsewhere! more

Marion

Great and we would go again. Our lady who was our guide really knew what she was talking about.

Emmanuel

We spent at least 40 minutes crammed into a corner of the City Pyramids building to pick up tickets, wait for the guide and get ou...r audio equipment. It was very hot and uncomfortable. It actually took from being at the meeting point at 9.15 until 10.30 before we even entered the Louvre. Our guide was good but after all the waiting around, we were then really rushed when we got to areas of interest. Fortunately, the tour gave me a good insight into the layout of the Louvre and I was able to use my ticket to spend more time there, visiting the things I wanted to see at leisure. I probably could have done this with a map and queued at the Louvre rather than city pyramids building. The guide did provide some useful insights but in a very strong french accent. more

Della

We did skip the line, which was great, however the guide didn't have much kowledge about the paintings. Maybe I feel this wa...y because the guide in the skip the line tour to the Musee D'Orsay was excellent, she sounded more like a professor than a guide and I visited Orsay first. more

ROSANGELA

Tour guide was rushed and only focused on works that she was interested in.
