Skip-the-Line Louvre Tour: Closing Time with the Mona Lisa

While everyone else stands outside in line for hours at the world's largest museum, you will go straight inside and make the most of your limited time in Paris. The Louvre is the grandest museum in the world and contains artifacts from several millennia. Marvel at the medieval fortress of the Louvre, the modern glass pyramids, the Venus de Milo, Winged Victory of Samothrace and Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa.

After skipping the line and leaving other visitors behind, our guests will learn about each of these masterpieces and more from an expert, English-speaking guide. As one of the world’s most famous paintings, the Mona Lisa rarely gets much peace. During regular visiting hours she is almost constantly mobbed by hundreds of people, severely compromising any time you get to spend with her. In order to avoid the crowds, we’ll take you to see her after most visitors have left and give you plenty of space to enjoy her beauty.

This tour provides the ultimate VIP experience in a museum that otherwise can be intimidating and potentially overwhelming. Our group size is limited to ensure a high quality experience for everyone. There are many ways to see the Louvre, but only one way shows you all the best works and gets you in front of the Mona Lisa after most of the crowds have left.

Skip the Line Louvre Tour: Closing Time with the Mona Lisa Reviews

Skip the Line Louvre Tour - Closing time with the Mona Lisa   is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Our family of 4 (with 2 teenager girls) was so thrilled with the tour: Tina was knowledgeable, intelligent, well-spoken (English), and had a great sense of humor. She humanized the art work by discussing the artists, their lives and the circumstances as well as providing the historical context in which the artist created his/her works. Truly worth every Euro. Thank you Tina!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money Adam was excellent. Skipped lines, learned so much more than trying to do it on my own. Hey you spent the money to get to Paris. The closing time was great as the museum really started to thin out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tour Guide This was my third visit to the Louvre over the past 25 years, but it was my first time that I booked a tour. In my previous visits, I really never quite got the history of the Louvre plus the place is huge and it was helpful to have somebody navigate the entire time. We had a great tour guide who was very knowledgeable and I was very glad that I booked the tour. I was referred to Fat Tire by a colleague of mine that had recently visited Paris. I would definitely recommend Fat Tire, and plan to book with them again the next time I visit to Europe.
