Great guide, but tour should be renamed Mona Lisa exhibit tour.

Violet was an excellent guide - pleasant and knowledgable, but there was far too much concentration on Mona Lisa. At least an hour and a half of the tour was spent talking about this work and we felt that was too much. Venus de Milo and The Winged Victory of Samothrace and other numerous religious pieces were the other exhibits we spent the rest of the time exploring. We stayed for another two hours to see the things not covered like Caravaggio, Delacroix, van Dyck etc. We realise that not everything can be covered in such a short time, but there was far too much focus on one painting. I think the information should be made clearer that this is a Mona Lisa tour rather than a highlights one.

Wonderful tour - the earlier in the day, the better!

Our tour was wonderful! We had the pleasure of having Justine as our guide and she was absolutely delightful. She was friendly, happy to answer questions, and knew her stuff! I would book an earlier tour in the future - we went at 2pm, which was fine (especially for my husband), but there is simply SO MUCH to see, the more time you have to explore after the guided tour, the better. You will have to queue separately to see the Mona Lisa, so factor that in if you want to catch a glimpse. Our wait was about 45 minutes, but it can be longer.

A good investment if you've little time but want to see the Louvre

The guide meets you and will point out all highlights during the trip inside. You will pass all queues as promised. Our guide was an art student and gave us several interesting aspects of different paintings and of course - which is important if you have a limited amount of time and much to see - she knew exactly where to take us inside of this giant palace which also saved time. The guide's English was good but the earphone was not so good so it was a bit tricky to hear everything she said.

Good to skip the queue but hard to follow the audio guide

This was on my bucket list. We got there early after booking 2 days in advance. The person handing out the audio guides was extremely difficult to understand to the point that I didn’t. We were happy to skip the queue outside and chose to see the Mona Lisa first, a 30 min wait. From there we spent 2 hours wandering through the louvre without catching up to the audio guide! All in all, slightly disappointed

Small group private tour with knowledgeable guide well worthwhile

Our tour started on time, was only six people and was guided by Lucineia who was very knowledgeable and interesting. The tour started and ended on time and we skipped most of the lines while highlighting the more interesting parts of the Louvre. Well recommend. That said know that to see the Mona Lisa is an additional hour and you do not skip that line!
