LOUVRE PRIVATE TOUR – Skip the line & Local expert guide


Due to temporary renovation work, the MONA LISA painting has been relocated to another wing of the museum. Unfortunately that has generated long lines INSIDE the museum itself that are beyond our control. Your guide knows the Louvre perfectly and will help you find the best route.

  • Who would not want to take a Louvre private tour when in Paris? The world's largest museum is by all means a must-see but going on your own could seem overwhelming. However, our local tour guides know the collection like the back of their hands and take you in through fast track, privileged access! 
    With our private tour of the Louvre, escape the crowds and discover the gems of the largest art collection in the world in a fun, casual way. If you want more than a selfie with Mona Lisa, treat yourself to our unique adventure at the Louvre.
