The Louvre is the world’s largest art museum, but the courtyard and area surrounding it is like a museum of its own — and even larger. We cover it all with this mini walking tour before you enter this grand monument to art.

Your guide will share about the history of this famous museum and how it relates to the many nearby landmarks. Learn about the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel (not to be confused with the arch on the Champs-Élysées), the flower-filled Jardin du Tuileries, the 2-mile Axe Historique, and the Cour Napoleon. And of course, you’ll discover all about the museum itself and its iconic pyramid.

It’s the perfect introduction to your self-guided tour of the Louvre. Each tour guest receives a timed-entry ticket for museum admission, so you make the most of your time here in Paris.

FAQs

How much walking is there?

There’s about 1 mile of walking. If mobility is an issue, please arrange for a private tour.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. We offer a 100% refund or the option to reschedule up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Plan to show up 15 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you may not be able to catch up if you arrive late.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine. If there’s extreme weather and we have to cancel, you’ll get a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips aren’t expected but are always appreciated by our guides. If you think your guide did an outstanding job, a tip is a great way to show that.
