Be sure to snap a picture of the Mona Lisa and then continue on with your tour to see more of the Louvre’s greatest pieces.

After exploring the statues, be sure to check out some of the museum’s great Greek and Roman antiquities.

Very good tour

The evening was great, the Louvre was not very crowded at all. The guide was amazing and we got to see the Mona Lisa up close.

Felt so fancy

We did this tour on our honeymoon and it was our favorite tour. It wasn't crowded and the pyramid being lit up was honestly worth it in itself.

My sister and I took this tour and found it remarkable! It was a great experience to learn about the beginnings of the Louvre and then visit and learn about the different types of art and their particular time periods and artists. Ferret was our guide and he was knowledgeable and funny and open to all of our questions. Of course there’s also visiting the Louvre at night with it’s beautiful pyramid lit up and less people too. Definitely would recommend!

Q: Can I use my Paris Museum Pass to get a discount on our Louvre tour?

A: We pre-book all of our reservations and admission tickets for the Louvre Museum in advance. While the Paris Museum Pass can bring you inside the Louvre, our tours include pre-booked reservations. Because of this, you are not able to use your passes on our tours.

Q: Can we stay longer in the museum after the tour ends? 

A: After your guide says goodbye, you are allowed to stay inside the museum until closing time. Be aware, though, that once you exit the area where the artwork is, you will not be allowed to re-enter. 

Q: Does this tour always visit every artwork listed?

Often artwork undergoes restorations or is loaned to another museum as an exhibit. Our itinerary will include the stop if it is open to be seen. If not, we will add a substitute.
