Traveller Tips


  • "Because the Louvre is so crowded and has long lines to enter, its best to get a skip the line tour to take you around, and given that the museum is so massive, its really timesaving." See review
  • "We saw the Mona Lisa first , it's a quick glance so be ready, have a plan." See review
  • "The bottom line: Ask for Empress Josephine for your guide , you can't do any better." See review

Hugo is outstanding!
Renee_P
, Aug. 2022
Hugo was outstanding, and this experience was great at getting to avoid the lines and only hit upon the things we really wanted to see. Hugo was very easy to understand, yet he still have that Parisian flair. He was funny, knowledgeable, very entertaining. We never felt bored at all. I have been to the Louvre multiple times, and I still learned and saw more this time

Our guide, Adam was amazing! He is really funny, engaging and super intelligent with an obvious passion and interest for the subject matter on the tour. My kids, 15 and 9 had their attention held all the way round. I didn’t want the tour to end and would love to book a longer tour if I knew I could have Adam as our guide.

Looking at the Louvre

This is a very brief overview of the Louvre which is exactly what we where looking for. You only see the highlights. We where on limited time but you can stay longer to explore on your own.

They lied to our face!
Mandi_T
, Jul. 2022
Booked this tour and after payment was taken then they sent a message saying not able to accommodate disabled customers! My mother has a walker and does not do stairs very easily. I researched prior and the louvre says the have 18 elevators in the museum. We went in with tour guide and after taking multiple stairs with no consideration or help for my mother we were aggravated. We asked for an elevator and he said there was not one. He started yelling at my mom and put finger in her face. We break away from tour and found an elevator right around the corner from the last set of stairs he made her climb. We were so furious! No consideration at all for her disabilities! Terrible!

Informative highlights
Nina_I
, Jul. 2022
The tour was wonderful! The Louvre is huge and this tour highlighted the key pieces of interest & the significance of each. However, we, along with 4 other people, almost missed the tour itself! I’d suggest the guide hold something to help identify her at the meeting point (unclear bc there were 2 statues) and in the museum itself. An easy fix in my opinion.

BEST TOUR - DANIEL IS THE BEST TOUR GUIDE!
Allison_M
, Jul. 2022
By far the best tour we have ever been on! Daniel was so funny and personable! The tour is 2 hours and it was perfect. Not too long, Learned lots and laughed along the way! Daniel was also the best tour guide we’ve ever had. After the tour was done, my boyfriend and I immediately asked if he had anymore tours while we were there. Would 100% go back..and specifically ask for him! Thanks Daniel! Love: the Nova Scotians!

Hugo’s tour of the Louvre is boss.
Tamra_U
, Jul. 2022
Hugo with Walks tours gave us a most exceptional tour of the Louvre! Without his guidance the enormous place would have been completely overwhelming. Hugo’s personal touches, like his subtle playlist and Parisian-perspective, not to mention perfect English and charm galore, really enhanced our morning at the museum.

Making the Louvre less daunting!
karenebroyles

A great tour through a daunting museum. My husband ananda I were intimidated by the sheer size of the Louvre and the volume of art. Out tour guide made it approachable and added stories and history that we wouldn’t have heard otherwise!
