I was concerned when the ticket said up to 50 participants, but in fact there were only 15-18 of us. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and, just as importantly, extremely helpful and attentive to the group. We saw the highlights and had time to explore on our own. A good way to see this overwhelming museum.

September 2015

This tour was fantastic! We had a small group of about 20 people, and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We all had headsets so we could hear her as we toured the Louvre. I enjoyed spending quality time - about two hours - with someone who knew a lot of the history and ensured we visited many of the high interest artwork. It is also nice to go in the evening. It's crowded, but not crazy. This was worth every penny and I would do it again.

September 2015

Our guide was wonderful. We would have never understood nor seen as much as we did without the guide. She was very knowledgeable about the art work. We could have never read all the displays and seen as much as we without her help.

A nice way to see the best places in only a couple of hours.


September 2015

Excellent tour. Skip the line is the only way to go. Tour guide was very informative. Booked several France tours with Viator and all were fantastic


August 2015

The tour guide was excellent in all regards and allowed us time to view displayed art as much as she could considering the thousands of people present. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it. We stayed at the Louvre and went back to items we wished to see more of.

Well worth it when you see the queues!

This is a must see tour if you are short on time and want to see the highlights of the Louvre. The information the guide provides is priceless. You learn a lot. The museum is so large, it helps having someone walk you directly to the most famous pieces.

Highly recommend this tour. August is high season, so expect to be pushed around in the crowds.

Very informative and knowledgable guide
The museum was very busy however, Eric knew where to move to avoiding crowds, cutting through etc.
We saw all the main treasures of the museum.
He also warned us about pick pockets and reminded us in key crowded places.


August 2015

We really enjoyed this tour. Since the Louvre is so large it is very difficult for visitors to figure out what to see in the space of, say, a few hours. The tour guide was charming, and very knowledgeable and passionate about both the history of the buildings and artifacts within them. She did a great job keeping us together despite crushing crowds and a lot of noise wherever we went. The audio equipment really helped, though the sound quality was not ideal and sometimes it was hard to hear our guide clearly. That said, it was a great experience and we really got the highlights tour that we will long remember
