Skip-the-Line Louvre Museum Tour

Make the most of your time at the world's largest museum with our Skip the Line Louvre Tour. While everyone outside waits in the hours-long line, we will go straight to security and make our way inside.

Alongside your expert guide, you will navigate the grand hallways of the Louvre with ease, learning not only about the magnificent pieces of art, but the history of the palace itself. You'll understand that as a royal palace, the Louvre used to be the sprawling home to the first family of France. You'll explore the key pieces of the Louvre including works by Michelangelo, Canova, Géricault and much more. Of course we will visit da Vinci's 'Mona Lisa' and learn the fascinating history behind this famous painting. 

This tour provides you with the ultimate highlights of the Louvre for those who don't want to waste your time standing in a line or navigating through a museum that can be intimidating and potentially overwhelming on your own. Led by an expert, English-speaking guide, you'll see the highlights of this famed museum and hear entertaining stories behind the artists and their works, bringing the paintings and sculptures to life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved Time and was very informative This tour saved an incredible amount of time. Not only skipping the line to get into the museum which could have taken hours, but we were efficiently taken to the main art exhibits(The Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Wings of Victory, etc.) which may have taken forever to find since the museum is so massive. Our guide, Violet, was very knowledgeable, funny and I hope to see her again on my next visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money We knew we wanted some guidance through the Louvre to be able to see and appreciate the highlights. We were given much more than that. Our guide, Carolina, was an expert on art history, a great communicator and very well organized. We appreciated the audio receivers that allowed us to hear her through headphones no matter how close to her we could get. I highly recommend her and this tour.
