Want to know why the Mona Lisa is so famous...?
Visiting the Louvre can be a daunting experience. . . you want to beat the crowds and make the most of your visit? Treat yourself to a private tour of this incredible museum, at your own pace.
Is it your first time at the Louvre ?
Then we should go for the "movie stars": Venus di Milo, Victory of Samothrace, Mona Lisa, Coronation of Napoleon, Raft of the Medusa, Freedom Guiding the People, Michelangelo's Slaves, Napoleon 3rd Apartments, Hammurabi Code, Aïn Ghazal. . . plus a few others on the way
Not your first time?
Let me know what you are interested in or let me make a few suggestions from which you can choose.
Want a family tour?
Let me know your children's age and we will adapt the tour.
Entrance is FREE for children below 18!!! I know, it can be hard to get a 16 year old interested in art but I like challenges (and teenagers too)!!!
Looking forward to our tour together !
We will meet outside the Louvre, go through security check at the entrance, stop by the coat check and restroom if needed and then head to the collections.
The tour will cover the preselected areas depending on your choice of tour (Highlights or specific sections/artworks).
Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: We will meet below the statue of king Louis 14th on his horse, which is located right in front of the glass pyramid. I will be holding a sign with your name on it.
End location: Either inside the Louvre if you wish to explore more, or outside. I will escort you to the nearest metro station or cab station.
Duration: 2 hours 30 min.
IMPORTANT : in the summer or during holidays there may be long lines at entrance due to security checks.
A 2h30 guided tour of a selection of artworks, history of the monument itself, recommendations for the rest of your trip.
Depending on the number of participants and time of the year I may be using a microphone and headphones. The price is included in the tour price.
Estimated Local Cash Needed
15 Euros - Entrance ticket is NOT included in the tour price.
Entrance is FREE for children under 18.
Unless you have a museum pass, I will purchase tickets for you. Please kindly reimburse them on the day of the tour.
I will also sometimes offer you another possibility depending on availability: skip the line tickets at 17 euros. These tickets are subject to availability, they allow us to skip the (sometimes very long) line for security checks.
Entrance fee: 15 euros per adult, entrance is free for children under 18 (bring their ID just in case!!)
I can guide in all the national monuments and museums as well as out on the streets.
I have my driving license but I am not a driver guide, I can arrange a driver for you if you would like a city tour or day excursion!

We Messed up on time & she called us and she waited for us and gave us a fantastic tour of the Louvre. She was very knowledgeable of its history, and of the current contents of its collections. There was 5 of us, 2@75,50,19 & 16 and she was able to keep all of us entertained & engaged. She used a headset system which made the tour great and worked to keep each of hearing every word. My 19 year old granddaughter asked a lot of question and she had all the right answers'. As always ToursByLocals delivered
