I love our tour guide, Adam, so much! He made the experience one of a kind. He’s extremely sharp- has a PhD, was part of the Louvre research team, and remembers our names and where we are visiting from (for 20 sth ppl in our group)!!! My partner and I still couldn’t stop talking about this tour. Our favorite thing about Paris is Louvre tour with Team Adam!

We thoroughly enjoyed the Highlights tour of the Louvre. Emmanuel was a great tour guide, very personable and knowledgeable. The tour was very well organized and efficient as we didn’t have to wait around for any logistics and we felt that we saw all of the major highlights at the Louvre in the short amount of time we had. I would highly recommend this tour to others.

Highly recommend this tour!! Our guide Violet was highly educated in Art History and passionate about the subject, but most of all she was charming, fun and an amazing story teller. It was just enough time for us, 2 hours to hit the highlights of the Louvre right at the best time of the day when the crowds are thinning. If you’d like to see more, schedule the earlier tour and then explore on your own afterwards as this tour ends right at closing time.

Meeting Point

Meeting Point Map ⟶

Meeting Point
Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel. We'll meet by the large statue of a seated winged figure near the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel. When facing the arch with the Louvre behind you, the statue will be on your left. 

Due to an ongoing renovation of the Arc du Carrousel, the meeting point may be a bit crowded. Your Walks coordinator will be waiting for you with a sign.

Please meet 15 minutes prior to the tour start time.


Can you guarantee that I will see every room in the Louvre listed here?
We can't guarantee it, but it's very likely. As with all museums, particular galleries of the Louvre may be closed without prior notice, or pieces may be removed for restoration or loan. In this case, your guide will make an appropriate substitution. However, as the pieces and the rooms we visit on our tour are the most important in the museum, these are the ones least likely to close or leave on loan.
What can I bring inside the Louvre Museums?
Please note that the Louvre will not allow large items inside the museum, so you should bring only a small daypack or handbag. More specifically, only bags smaller than 21.5 in x 13.5 in x 7.5 in (55 cm x 35 cm x 20) cm are permitted. Suitcases and large bags must be left outside. Closed, clear bottles of water are allowed inside the Louvre however food is forbidden inside the site. Please be advised that the use of selfie sticks and flash photography is not allowed inside the Louvre. Additional security checks may cause longer waits at unavoidable security lines at times.
I use a wheelchair: Can I take this tour?
Unfortunately, this tour route is not fully wheelchair accessible so wheelchair users cannot join our group tour. Please contact customer service at [email protected] to enquire about wheelchair-friendly tours.
Do I need to bring an ID with me on this tour?
Yes! Please ensure that all members of your party have a valid ID on them on the day of the visit. This is particularly important for guests who have qualified for a student discount.
