2 travellers
Take a small group or a private (depending on the option you choose) walking tour of the Louvre Museum in Paris and jump the queue by booking ahead. This skip the line tour helps you explore the collection of paintings, sculpture, and architecture with an expert local guide. Numbers are limited to a maximum of 25 people on this small group walking tour, ensuring you'll receive personalized attention from your guide. Upgrade your ticket for a private tour exclusive to just your group.
This tour was specifically designed to highlight the most famous works of the Louvre Museum. Entering the Louvre through the original Medieval structure from the 12th century, join your guide on a journey from one breathtaking gallery to the next as you travel through time visiting works from 450 BCE through to the 1800s.
  • Explore the Louvre museum with an art expert on a guided tour 
  • Beat hours-long lines with a skip-the-line admission ticket 
  • Learn about the history of masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa 
  • Choose from several departure times, or upgrade to a personal tour
What to Expect
Your tour begins outside of the Louvre museum at the time selected during checkout—arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled departure. With your skip-the-line admission ticket, you’ll sail past hours-long lines and head straight inside the museum, home to more than 35,000 works of art. With your guide, visit world-famous pieces such as Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, and see French masterpieces from the 19th century including Ingres' La Grande Odalisque, Gericault's The Raft of the Medusa, and the works of David and Delacroix. Once your guided tour has concluded, you can continue exploring the museum independently.

There are a number of steps in various parts of the Louvre, but I believe there are elevators. My best recommendation would be to contact the tour agency. They would be the best resource to provide you guidance. Good luck!
