Full description

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.

Guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour so enjoyable and the narrative/ explanations of the works so interesting. Personally we would not have had such a great experience at the louvre if it wasn’t for him as the museum is so huge and ultra busy he pointed out such details and historical Background that we would never known about or noticed

Valerie made the tour very nice, always including the children. I would have liked more details about the individual statues (e.g. beyond the mere Greek mythology based on the attributes). If you don't want to wait in line, want to see the highlights and have the wherewithal, this tour is recommended. 4 out of 5 stars for value for money.

We started the tour with a great guide named Merve. A very nice and knowledgeable lady who made our visit very agreeable. The Louvre is busy as always, but she did a great job guiding us through the museum and around the masterpieces while giving us a lot of information. I found, however, at times that in the busy parts of the museum, the volume of the audioguide system was low (although I always had it maxed out) compared to all the noise around us.
