Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Skip the ticket line at the Louvre Museum at the end of the day to see masterpieces of art without the crowds. Follow a carefully designed route through the galleries to reach the Mona Lisa just as the museum is closing. Tested and perfected, your itinerary inverts the normal Louvre route, allowing you to see much more than other visitors who are on normal tours that try to fit the rest of the museum into 1.5 hours. Discover treasured landmarks, such as the historic foundations of the Kings’ Palace Moat. Marvel at ancient Greek and Roman sculptures, including the legendary Venus de Milo. Gaze in awe at Michelangelo’s Slaves and many other great works by French artists such as Delacroix and Géricault. Admire the crown jewels of the former French monarchy, the Winged Victory monument, and works from the Italian Renaissance by Caravaggio, Raphael, and Da Vinci. End in front of the Mona Lisa after the crowds have left to get a better appreciation of her enigmatic beauty.

Adam was the best guide we could have hoped for. He timed every story and exhibit perfectly. Throughout the entire tour we got the feeling that each explanation prepares us for the next one. His narration was eloquent, vivid and highly entertaining. His control of the subject matter and approachable presentation were superb. The theme of the tour was learning to appreciate the Mona Lisa. I feel confident in saying that mission was very successful but even if we had never got to see the Mona Lisa (we have, it was impeccably timed) the journey there was more than worth it. The Louvre came to life through it. Team Adam FTW!

Nice tour with a skilled, competent and passionate guide. The only drawback, too much time devoted to the structure of the museum and a little 'little to works of art. We didn't see the egypt part, the mesopotamia part very quickly. However, it is very nice to see the Nike and the Mona Lisa with little tail

We did the 6:45pm Louvre tour with Josephine. She was amazing! She mentioned at the end that Walks Tours, the company you are booking with, has professional and educated tour guides, and this couldn’t have been more true. We’ve been in Europe for 3 weeks and been to 3 countries and 6 cities. We’ve toured every major place in each of those and Josephine outdid all of them. She was knowledge and professional, but most importantly, she was funny! It can be hard at times to walk thru museums day after day, and to stay interested while there, but she made it impossible to not stay intrigued. I would definitely do this tour again. We got to Mona Lisa around 9:15 near the end of the tour and I didn’t wait more than 30 seconds to view it.
