Our tour guide, Adam, was really something special. Personable, so knowledgeable about the art and the Louvre, and super-funny, Adam made our tour memorable and incredibly fun! We ARE Team Adam! Thank you, Adam, for a GREAT experience.

Highly recommend this tour for a concise and efficient view of the Louvre. Obviously this museum is enormous, and the allotted time is not enough to see it all. The tour, however, gives a lovely overview at a time when it is less crowded. We did this on a Friday evening and waited about two minutes (or less) to get to the front to see the Mona Lisa. I met another couple who visited the Louvre the same weekend, and the line was about an hour long. Our guide Carolina was amazing, and I thoroughly enjoyed her commentary and insights. My one piece of advice would be to take a break in your schedule before this tour, we were exhausted by the end because we had been going, going all day in Paris.

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.
Why is it so hard to see the Mona Lisa without a lot of people?
The Mona Lisa is arguably the most famous painting in the world due to a variety of factors that include its painter, Leonardo da Vinci, the fact that he left very few completed paintings, the mysterious circumstances surrounding the painting, and the fact that it was stolen and lost for a number of years. It is housed in the Louvre, which is the most visited art museum in the world. When you combine all of these things, it makes the Mona Lisa probably the most visited/overcrowded painting in the world. Seeing it without the heaviest crowds is a matter of experience, opportunity, and very good timing.
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.
