Pick them up at a central location in Paris, then take a short stroll to the Louvre Museum's main entrance for your security check. Sidestep the entry lines with your skip-the-line ticket and head straight inside to begin your independent tour.

Your map outlines suggested itineraries and your audio guide catches all the highlights, encapsulating Greek antiquity, French painting, and Italian masterpieces. Admire the "Mona Lisa" and hear interesting information about the most-loved and best-known works of art on display, like "Venus de Milo" and the "Winged Victory of Samothrace," while exploring the world’s largest art museum. 

Afterward, discover the Louvre’s many other rooms, brimming with world-famous and lesser-known gems. When you get tired or hungry, visit one of the many on-site eateries, or purchase gifts and souvenirs at the bookstore. Then saunter through the Tuileries Garden before returning your audio guide.

Wish we could have gone
, Mar 2020
I'm sure it would have been wonderful if we could have gone. With the virus and trying to figure out travels we missed being able to go.
Terrible lines
, Mar 2020
Terrible lines took over an hour to get in even with the ticket. I would beware of when you show up - False advertising
Ticket was not honored
, Feb 2020
Showed up 45mins prior to 12pm appointment. Gate didn't open til 12:35pm. Had to purchase a standard ticket. My ticket was not honored. I did get to see portions of the Lourve but not the highlights I was told.
Terrible organisation.
, Feb 2020
Firstly, it is not explained enough that the email you receive is not your ticket. Got to the redemption point, a small office and it was full of people with absolutely no direction. Staff were terrible, so rude. Finally got to the front of the 25 minute queue to be told that they hadn’t received our tickets so we weren’t able to do the tour we had booked. I questioned why this couldn’t be sorted as it wasn’t our fault they hadn’t received it and there must have been a way to fix it. After been told we had to join a group tour, we waited another 20 minutes to leave the office. We weren’t actually given tickets by the office or the guide so even though the guide kept saying that we could stay and explore after the tour, we were unable to easily manoeuvre the museum as we couldn’t leave or enter certain areas without a ticket. All in all I would not recommend this tour to anyone.
louvre museum
, Feb 2020
Very good experience the Viator office was easy to find just make sure you read the email first as i went straight to the louvre museum when i actually should have gone to the Viator office to receive my entrance tickets ......
The Perfect Blend!
, Feb 2020
The best part of Paris was made even better. The audio guide was just the right blend to see all the highlight in one visit.
get more explanation on where to start
, Feb 2020
the map was not easy to follow. took us a while to orient as to where to start. would have preferred more explanation on where to start once in the museum. Enjoyed the ease and pace once i did figure out the map.
Good visit
, Jan 2020
Visit was excellent, entering to louvre museum all have to pass by only security check point. Audio guide tour good, maps or guide for visit should be improved.
Absolute disgust!

I asked the security guard at the Museum entrance, for assistance to where i needed to redeem my voucher and he said I had to stand in line. After 40 minutes in line I was then told the actual location i needed to go was a 10 minute walk away and that I would have to come back and stand in line again unless I wanted to buy tickets again from the museum. I had to pay another $45. What a ripoff. I’m thoroughly disgusted with the dishonestly and greed.
, Dec 2019
We arrived before 10.30 at La Louvre, dying to find how to download our tickets. We finally got through to the ticket office to find we had a five minute walk to the location. We then had to queue to enter La Louvre as no one was interested in our priority tickets. I could have paid a lot less and received the same service ...very disappointing
