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.
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.
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.

Great Highlights Tour
Norbert_D, Sept 2023
Julien was an excellent guide and he provided wonderful insight into the Louvre and the highlight pieces of art we were able to view and enjoy. A personal guide is a must for this museum.
1st time to the Louvre
Marsinah_M, Sept 2023
Good tour to get an introduction to the Louvre. Tour guide was knowledgeable and did a good job maneuvering us through the crowds.
Incredible Perspective
Robert_H, Sept 2023
Julian and his knowledge were absolutely amazing. What was even better was his French perspective. To walk in a place with that much history is a little daunting but to have it explained to you by someone whose made it his life’s work is breathtaking. Viator always has the best guided. Julian, I think, is the best of the best
Perfect Louve Tour To Remember Forever!
Rebecca_R, Sept 2023
Our tour with our guide Saskia was amazing. She shared so much knowledge and history in a very relatable way. We saw and learned about the 3 most famous pieces (Mons Lisa. winged Victory, Venus de Milo) but also so much more in different parts of the museum with much less crowds. She did a great job keeping both families needs met though out. It truly was an experience we will never forget!
Sue_H, Sept 2023
We had the very best experience anyone could possibly have. We toured the Louvre with Florence & she was extremely knowledgeable, ( which I certainly will do my very best to pass down to anyone & everyone I hear of visiting the Louvre).
Miriam is amazing
Mark_M, Sept 2023
Miriam was amazing she knew so much she walked and talked which I loved. We could hear her so clearly. She was truly amazing
Semi private Louvre tour.
David_N, Sept 2023
Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. He not only knew about the art but how to navigate around all of the crowds. Learned more from him in two and a half hours than I could have on a week on my own. Well worth it.
Great tour
Carrie_S, Sept 2023
Our Louvre tour was great! Malaika was an excellent and thoughtful guide. We enjoyed her commentary.

Sabrina_L, Sept 2023
We thought a guide would be great. Picked a small group only 8 people. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We saw things we wouldn’t have on our own. Just wished he had a microphone because very difficult to hear many times.
Sarah_B, Sept 2023
Nancy was a terrific guide! She was an expert in explaining a lot of the art works , above what one would normally see or know.
Our guide, Nancy, was awesome!

Les trois grands dames de Louvre
Dindo_D, Sept 2023
Our tour guide for the Louvre museum was amazing and very knowledgeable about the ins and outs of the place. She knows where to go to get the best angles for photos that make a great reminder of the trip. She also showed us the three great women of the Louvre.
Best tour yet and well...
Thomas_N, Sept 2023
Best tour yet and well worth the money. I knew the Louvre would be huge and crowded and hard to find our way round so I purchased the private tour for our family of four. Eduardo texted us before tour start time to tell us where to meet and how to identify him. Eduardo was friendly, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. Showed us all the highlights of the Louvre, his favorites, and things of historical significance. We learned alot. After the tour, he gave us our tickets digitally so we could stay longer if we wanted. Also gave us a great recommendation for a local cafe for lunch and other things in the area to see.
Loved the Louvre
Amelia_B, Sept 2023
Miriam was an excellent guide, providing background info on what we saw. We got a good overview of the Louvre. There is so much there, it’s impossible to do CD any more than that
Insightful tour that covers highlights
Shannon_R, Sept 2023
Enjoyed the highlights and two hours felt like enough as we aren’t history buffs but able to absorb some golden nuggets along the way
Love the Louvre
Kellee_G, Sept 2023
Love the Louvre!! Florence was fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable and interesting. Her stories were fascinating and on point for this tour. Tour moves very fast, but you are allowed to hang out at the museum afterwards to revisit anything that you missed or want to see again.
Ask for Julian!
JIMMIE_L, Sept 2023
The knowledge, understanding & context provided by our guide (Julian), gave us a better understanding of the treasures we saw. Also, his knowledge of the museum logistics allowed us the get through the most pieces in the time we had available.
