Planning a trip to the Louvre and wondering which are the best tours to take? Or, if you should take a tour at all? The Louvre in Paris is the largest museum on Earth containing an immense amount of important artwork which makes it a must. For example, 25% of all Da Vinci paintings are in the Louvre! Should you see them alone or go with a tour guide?
Should You Take a Louvre Tour?
Yes, yes, yes. We understand you may have been burnt in the past with a bad tour, but times have changed and tours are different. Before you had to either pay tons of money for a private tour or join a boring group of 50 with some robot guide.
Today, there are Louvre tours with 12 to 20 people on them which elevates the experience SOOOO much. Take it from a former tour guide, a smaller group makes it easier for the tour guide which in turn makes it better for you. Don’t trust us, trust the reviews!

Paris Catacombs Tours
We are a tour company so we obviously will recommend a tour. We started in this business for two reasons. First, we love history and learning about our world and culture. Second, we wanted to rid the world of boring tours. We believe that art is an expression that is more than “oil on canvas”. It is about the life of the artist and how they were effected by the dramatic changes of their time period.
Join one of our tours and you will not be let down! Admissions are always included and we always skip the lines for admissions.
