Louvre Museum Private Tours are the focus of Babylon City Tours. With 35,000 pieces of art to discover on top of a rich architectural history, we understand if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by the Louvre. We’re here to help. The Louvre is the most famous museum in the world, and with good reason. From its roots as a fortress to its days as a royal residence, the Louvre has more secrets than any building in Paris could ever hold. This intimate group tour seeks to captivate first-timers as well as those who think they know it all as you visit statues like the armless Venus de Milo and the headless Winged Victory of Samothrace. Drool over the crowned jewels in the opulent Apollo Gallery and descend into the depths of the medieval moat beneath the museum. We’ll even discuss a few master painters like Michelangelo and Delacroix. From the smiling Mona Lisa to the 19th century masters, our passionate guides will show you what you need to see at the Louvre Museum with our private walking tours, as well as a few surprises which are not in the guidebooks.

    Great tour with the guide having a wealth of knowledge about the paintings,artifacts and the history from which the paintings belonged. Highly recommend the tour if you do not want to roam the museum without knowledge and history and where to go and see the highlights. A lot to cover in a short time.

    My husband and I had a 2 to 3 hour private tour of the Louvre with Lucia on 4/17/2017. She was spectacular! She was very knowledgeable about the history of the Louvre and she answered all of our questions. She went at our pace, not rushed, but not too slow either. We hit all of the highlights and she suggested a few things, based on what she could tell we were interested in. I highly recommend the "skip the line" tour, and I would make a special request for Lucia, she was great!

    We did a private tour with Bellen (sp?) of the Louvre. The tour was incredible and Bellen really gave us the framework for viewing art. We learned so much on the tour and the time flew by because we were so engrossed in the tour. I highly recommend booking a tour with Bellen.

    We had a fabulous 2-1/2 hour tour of the Louvre with Christina (not sure if I'm spelling it right). She fully engaged my elderly parents as well as my teenage daughter. She was amazing -- so knowledgeable and so interesting. She did a great job of navigating the crowds and moving us along. I didn't want it to end!
