Return Details

75001 Paris, France

The tour ends inside the museum, so you can continue visiting this huge and wonderful museum after your guided tour, if you wish so.

Gather your family and meet your guide on the Place du Carrousel, just opposite the entrance to the Louvre. Your private guide is very experienced with families of all combinations and children of all ages; they will ensure everyone in your party is engaged in the history and art of the Louvre.

With prepurchased tickets, you'll skip the long line and proceed directly inside. Follow your guide to see the most famous treasures of the museum; choose from a 1.5-, 2-, or 3-hour tour, depending on your time available and attention span of your group. Learn about Mona Lisa's legend, the Egyptian Gods or the famous da Vinci code. Hear the history of the building, which was originally built in the 12th century as a fortress. 

Stop by must-see masterpieces by artists such as Ghirlandaio, Ingres, Michelangelo, Bernini, Delacroix, Canova, and Géricault. The goal is for all tour participants to feel inspired by the museum's treasures and to make the sometimes overwhelming collection accessible to everyone.

Duration: 5 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Louvre Museum
You'll enter the museum with skip-the-line access. The Louvre truly has something for everyone in the family, and your guide keeps the kids enthralled with interesting facts about the history of the museum and its works of art, for instance, the fact that the Louvre was built in the 12th century and was originally a fortress and palace. Your tour centers around certain themes, such as the Da Vinci Code, Egyptian Gods, or Mona Lisa’s Legend. With your guide leading the way, see the works of major artists like Géricault, Canova, Delacroix, Bernini, Michelangelo, Ingres, and Ghirlandaio. Perhaps you'll also see the Crown Jewels or the Napoleon III Apartments, depending on your interests and availability of masterpieces. Of course, you probably won't want to miss Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, as well as other famed masterpieces such as the Winged Victory of Samothrace and Venus de Milo. You can decide if you want to go for a 1.5, a 2 hour or a 3 hour tour, depending on the needs of your kids, and what you see can be tailored to your preferences and the ages of your children.

Worth every penny
, Sep 2021
Tatiana was very knowledgeable even when asked about random exhibits it was obvious she knew her stuff. Our kids (10 & 6) were not cooperative, but she did a great job trying to keep them involved. We saw everything we wanted to see in exactly 2 hours, and were able to move on. Only thing we could have done differently was book the 0900 tour because at 1600 the Tuileries were packed. Highly recommend.
We’d love to come back for more
, Aug 2021
We wanted to ensure that our first trip to the Louvre, with our 10 year-old, was a success, and we were not disappointed. It was easy to find Tatiana at the meeting point and she immediately put us at ease. She guided us expertly, explaining logistics and exactly what we would see. She had a great sense of humour, and kept our son engaged and on his toes.We learnt a lot about the history of the Louvre, as well as about the sculptures and paintings that we saw. We all had the best history of art lesson ever and would love to come back for more.
Exceeded expectations

Great tour

Our guide was fantastic. She kept our kids engaged for the entire tour. Very knowledgeable. All of enjoyed the tour.
Perfect way for families to explore the Louvre!
, Dec 2019
One thing that you hear about the Louvre before you go there is the sheer enormity of the collection, and that can make the thought of taking children there overwhelming. This tour was perfect for making the museum's biggest treasures accessible to adults and children alike, and we are grateful to have found it. Agathe was a wonderful guide. She was prompt, engaging, and kept our 12- and 10-year-old sons interested and involved in everything we were seeing. It was especially nice to be able to go directly to the great works we wanted to see, and the background information -- both historical and artistic -- and depth of knowledge Agathe had were quite impressive. I recommend this tour to any families who want to see the Louvre in a way that everyone can get something out of it.
Great private tour!

Louvre Private Tour with kids

Perfect for our 7 and 12 y/o

We enjoyed a 2-hour private tour with our 7 and 12 y/o kids. 2 hours was the perfect amount of time for the 7 y/o - and our tour guide did a great job keeping him engaged and interested. We skipped the lines for tickets and security with the Blue Badge, and were regaled by interesting stories about the Louvre in general and some of the works of are we were particularly interested in the entire time. We spent another hour or so after getting a snack, but still haven't scratched the surface discovering the treasures within. Money well spent - great experience and memories. Thanks!

Super tour with Valeria
, Jul 2019
The tour company changed our guide to Valeria and we're so glad they did. She was energetic, knowledgeable, and connected with the kids, ages 8 and 10 immediately. The 2 hours flew by, with all of us learning, and appreciating the fine works of art at the Louvre, Thanks Valeria, you educated the whole family and made it fun.
