Lovely Louvre tour with Lea
We booked a 1.5 hour tour on what turned out to be a very rainy afternoon. Once we connected, Lea spent 2 hours with us. She was very knowledgeable about art history and the layout of the Louvre, ensuring we saw “the classics” and a few pieces we expressed interest in. Her expertise made the visit enjoyable despite the crowds.

There were just the two of us.
We had both been to the Louvre before and wanted something more in depth. Tina, an art historian, tailored our tour to us and it was fabulous! I would highly recommend this tour to any age and experience level.

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. If mobility is an issue, please indicate this when booking your 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 is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. If you’re unable to make this tour, we also offer rescheduling to another date free of charge, pending availability of tickets. Please keep in mind there are no refunds available if you have already rescheduled your tour.

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.

What about gratuities?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
