Our tour, Closing Time at the Louvre: The Mona Lisa at Her Most Peaceful, was great. It was very convenient, well organized and our guide was fantastic. With so much to see at the Louvre having a guide was great. He was very knowledgeable, moved us (without rushing us) through the museum, and was open to questions. The technology used for communication worked great and we had no issues hearing even through there were many people around. We are now looking for Walks tours as we travel to other places.

Do your research and go on your own. Spend your time with the art and era you have an interest in. Take this tour only if you have money to burn and just want to check the Louvre off your list.

Nancy did a fantastic job with our Louvre tour! She has a great personality and made the tour enjoyable for all of the people in our group with ages ranging from 8-50.

Ivana our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Her explanations and obvious passion and wry wit made it a great tour especially for someone not that in tune with the arts.

Great tour with excellent guide - Violet! This tour gets you past the line, hits some great highlights in what is a very overwhelming museum. The guide knows her way around and gets you to the right spots and her knowledge makes the tour fun, informative and awe- inspiring!

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.
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.
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.
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.
