FAQs

How much walking is there?

There is about 1 mile of walking at a very leisurely pace. Elevators and escalators are periodically being repaired and may be closed for service and therefore can be unpredictable. There are short flights of stairs throughout the tour.

Can I take photos inside the museum?

Photos are allowed and encouraged during the tour. However, many pieces, including the Mona Lisa, have strict regulations which prohibit the use of flash photography.

What happens when parts of the museum close?

Different exhibits or wings of the Louvre may be closed during your visit based on the discretion of the museum staff. Luckily, your private guide has expertise to adjust your tour and help you discover other treasures so your experience is still top-notch.

What is the rescheduling policy?

If you’re unable to make this tour, we also offer rescheduling to another date free of charge, pending availability of tickets.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine, so please check the local forecast to plan. In rare cases when we have to cancel for extreme weather, we’ll offer you the chance to reschedule or give a full refund.

Are gratuities included?
