Covid-19 Update

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

Discover one of the world’s great art collections on a guided tour of the Louvre Museum, and marvel at relics from Ancient Egypt to the art of the Italian Renaissance. The entire collection would take months to see in full, but you will follow a carefully planned route to discover the highlights. Gaze at da Vinci’s enigmatic Mona Lisa and see Anthony Canova’s emotional Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss. Hear the true story depicted in Gericault’s Raft of Medusa. Go to Napoleon’s former apartments to admire the most beautiful décor of the palace, as well as a collection of crown jewels. The masterpieces continue with the Venus de Milo, the sculpture that inspired so many artists. Head to the basement of the Louvre Palace to see the foundations of the castle that once stood on the site. Choose between 2 options: get your ticket and guided tour with one of the skip-the-ticket-line guided tours in several languages. Alternatively, if you already have a ticket or museum pass, choose the guided tour for ticket or museum pass holders.

We had an amazing time during our Louvre tour. We have been on many tours and this was definitely one of our favorites. Lou was super informative and enthusiastic, we learned so much and had a great time. Made our Louvre experience so much more enjoyable, we would absolutely recommend to anyone going to the Louvre, especially for a first visit.

Clear meeting point, then you walk along the line at the Louvre. Goes to special entrance for groups. You can hear the guide well via receiver and headphones (we had used the earphones of the hop-on-hop-off bus, they are better). Nice guide (Lucinda or Lu?), you go to the highlights and she told interesting facts so it didn't get boring at all. Definitely recommended! Entrance ticket is included.

Our guide, Ivan, was incredible. He was incredibly knowledgeable and patient. Our tour group consisted of just our family of four. This resulted in a highly personalized tour. The tour was wonderful. Ivan even took pictures of our family for us. The meeting location was not clear and difficult to find. We were a across the street from the location. We called GYG and they gave a different address. We asked a local and set out in a different direction based on the information provided by the local, which ended up being incorrect information. We were grateful that Ivan waited for us to find the location. This was an incredible tour. We would recommend this tour because it’s a 10/10. The Louvre is huge. Have a plan or Get Your Guide. I highly recommend requesting Ivan who has a story for every piece of art. He really loves and appreciates all the artwork!!
