Discover more about this Semi-Private Louvre Museum Tour

This 2 to 2.5 hour semi-private walking tour of the Louvre museum allows you to skip the line and scores you a ticket that is valid for the whole day. We keep groups to 6 people or less on a tour that includes a visit to some of the most iconic pieces while also exploring the history behind the building that, today, is larger than the palace at Versailles. You also have the option to book an evening tour on Wednesday or Friday to avoid the crowds if possible.



Babylon tours offers more than a Louvre Museum tour. 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. It’s 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, as well as a few surprises not in the guidebooks.

Highlights Generally Include: (if artwork is not on loan or being restored etc.) Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Winged Victory of Samothrace, Liberty Leading the People, Michelangelo’s Slaves, Louis XIV’s Apollo Gallery, Underground Medieval Moat

    At the end of our visit, my head was spinning with all the great information Belen gave us during our tour. We learned facts from Belen we never would by just walking through the various artist rooms. Many other visitors were trying to listen in to her discussion. One even interrupted her talk to ask for her card for the next time he was in town! We always arrange a private/semi-private tour of any museum we visit to learn as much as possible and it is worth the additional cost-which is small in the long range scheme. An added plus is skipping the long lines! Do it, don't hesitate. Thank you, Belen!

    Thank you to our spectacular tour guide, Belen! We learned so much, and enjoyed every minute. Belen was super informed, engaging, and kind. Her approach is cerebral but not intimidating- exactly what we were looking for. I will absolutely recommend her to friends visiting Paris and will look forward to touring with her again.

    The Louvre Museum is very overwhelming with so many things to see and very large crowds. Our Guide, Lucia, from Babylon Tours really helped us to make the most of our time there so would see the most important things to us. She frequently asked if we had particular things we wanted to see and made lots of good suggestions too. Her knowledge and professionalism clearly helped make our tour memorable.

    This was supposed to be a semi-private tour of the Louvre, but the other family never showed up. Our tour guide, Felix, was fantastic. He helped us navigate the enormous museum to find the most important and impressive pieces, and did a great job telling the histories and stories behind the pieces in a way that held all of our attention (include our 10 and 13 year old daughters).

    Although this was a small group tour (max 5 people), my wife and I were lucky to be the only ones on this tour (early March). Belen met us on time, gave a great overview of the city and the history of the Louvre. We then skipped the line with ease, and Belen really really took care of us. After the tour, I really feel more educated, arty even :) Her perspective on everything was so good, and I would highly recommend this tour
