Skip the Line Louvre Tour

This private tour includes skip the line Louvre tickets, so you don’t need to wait in line with thousands of people. Once inside, your private tour of the Louvre begins. All our Louvre guides are passionate experts in art history. As you stop by all the best masterpieces, learn the stories behind them and the artists who created them. Besides the highlights of the Louvre, visit artwork that is mostly unknown. After all, the collections inside the historic monument contain 38,000 priceless works of art. And remember, there is no need to consult your guidebook or map, our guides know the Louvre as well as their own living rooms. 

Mona Lisa's Smile

Why is Mona Lisa’s smile so mysterious? Is she happy or sad? Leonardo da Vinci’s famous portrait of Lisa Gherardini, titled Mona Lisa, is arguably the most famous painting in the world. The masterpiece also holds a Guinness World Record-breaking insurance policy for approximately $800,000,000! Our guide can't wait to share the stories behind the acclaimed painting, and the fascination with the woman it depicts. Leonardo da Vinci was a true genius who left behind a huge legacy in both science and art. Besides the Mona Lisa, Leonardo has plenty other paintings housed at the Louvre.

The Louvre is also home to thousands of sculptures. One of the most well-known is the Venus de Milo. Standing 6'8" tall, the Venus de Milo represents the feminine beauty ideal. Discovered in 1820 on the Greek Island of Milos, the statue depicts the Greek goddess of love and beauty. Another highlight in the Louvre is the Winged Victory of Samothrace, a marble Hellenistic sculpture of Nike (the Greek goddess of victory). Created in the 2nd century B.C. (or thereabouts), the statue is one of the most celebrated in the world. These incredible ancient sculptures only represent a fraction of the Greek and Roman antiquities at the Louvre.

The French Royal Family

The Louvre is a former royal palace. Given that the Louvre has such a strong link to royalty, it only makes sense to visit France’s Crown Jewels. On display in the Louvre’s Galerie d'Apollon, the surviving French Crown Jewels were worn by the kings and queens of France. At each new Coronation, an extravagant custom crown was created. As you admire the prized items, learn about the history of French royalty

At The Tour Guy, we put a huge amount of energy into all our tours, including our private Louvre tour. At the conclusion of this tour, don’t forget to ask your private Louvre tour where to eat and what to do in Paris. As experts in all things Paris, we do all we can to ensure your vacation is filled with amazing French culture, world-class art, incredible food and unforgettable memories.

Great Louvre experience

Z was a great guide, giving context and educating us while allowing us time to enjoy and absorb what we were seeing. Would highly recommend going at opening time to be able to miss some crowds.
