The Basics

Adam is fantastic. Literally, in 3 hours he took us through the history of painting until 1865. He not only explained the technique of painting, the science and restoration of pieces of art and he pointed out the shapes that where found again and again thought the centuries. He was funny, personable, and throughly organized. We highly recommend a tour with adam.

Great private tour of the louvre

Louvre Museum Skip-the-line Access Private Guided Tour
Elena was a great guide . It was totally worth it. She was knowledgeable and entertaining . It took 2 minutes to get into the louvre . We would have been lost in the building without her taking us to all the best places and explaining to us how to get to other places when the tour was over . She paid special attention to our 14 year old son.

Louvre Museum Skip-the-line Access Private Guided Tour
Outstanding tour with a fantastic and knowledgeable guide. Lucian was brilliant. There is so much to see in the Louvre and our guide directed and taught us about the pertinent points of art and history. This experience was so improved from when we went three years ago without a guide. Made a huge difference. Our next tour of other museums will be guided. Would highly recommend.

Underrated Artworks at the Louvre

Most visitors flock to the Mona Lisa, but the Louvre is so much more than da Vinci's moody muse. Make time for Ingres' Grande Odalisque, an 18th-century nude; the cheeky 16th-century Gabrielle d’Estrées and One of Her Sisters; and a Goya classic—The Countess del Carpio. You can even explore the ruins of the fortress upon which the Louvre is built.
