Eco-sustainable tourism, designed to respect and support local culture, art and traditions

During your LivTours private Louvre tour, you will take a close look at the Ancient Egypt collections discovering the sleek granite Great Sphinx of Tanis. Discovered in an Egyptian temple in the 1800s, this sphinx is considered to be the biggest and best-preserved in any Western museum.

Next, it’s time to explore two of Ancient Greece’s globally recognizable sculptures – the armless Venus de Milo and the headless Winged Victory of Samothrace. Although both are missing a few parts, they are universally considered some of the best surviving original Hellenistic sculptures in the world.

Just a short walk from Venus de Milo you will get a chance to see some impressive Italian sculptures including Michelangelo’s powerful Rebellious Slave & Dying Slave as well as Canova’s passionate Cupid & Psyche.

Before beholding Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, you will take a tour of some of the Louvre’s other eye-catching canvasses. This portion of the tour will include stops by Paolo Veronese’s Wedding Feast of Cana, Jacques-Louis David’s Coronation of Napoleon, and icons of French Romanticism like Delacroix’s Liberty Leading the People and Théodore Géricault’s Raft of Medusa.

Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa

Of all the thousands of paintings housed in the Louvre, Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa remains the most popular and enigmatic work. Supposedly the portrait of a 16th-century Italian noblewoman, this painting has bewitched billions over the years and inspired countless songs, films, and novels. Your LivTour guide will shed light on how this painting became one of the most well-known works of art in the world.

  • Much Richer Experience with LivTours

    We had an excellent 2 1/2-hour tour of the Louvre highlights with our guide Suzanne. Her knowledge, patience with our kids, friendliness, and captivating storytelling provided us with a richer experience at the museum. Choosing Suzanne and LivTours made our visit much more fascinating and fulfilling, especially given the immense size and complexity of the Louvre.

  • Excellent

    Manuel walked us through and gave us the greatest experience we could have asked for. We were lucky enough to have him as a tour guide for the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Arch de Triumph, Trocadéro, Napoleon’s Tomb and other sites. Manuel’s information about everything was inspiring. We even tried to challenge him with some peculiar or hard questions, and he knew those too. We really liked his company as well. I would definitely recommend him and LivTours.

  • Private tour for two at the Louvre highlighting the greats!

    Violette was our tour guide and she was fantastic! She communicated with us in advance to tell us know how to find her, and she was very nice and knowledgeable. Violette understood us right away as a couple and brought us on our way to tour the big highlights at the Louvre. She shared with us the history of the Louvre, the sculptures, paintings, artifacts, and more as we walked through the Louvre. I definitely recommend a private tour because the museum has over 35,000 pieces of art! Violette was helpful to find good picture taking and spots to look for to get the best views of overcrowded pieces such as the Mona Lisa. I highly recommend Violette and we are so thankful for the invaluable experience she gave us today.

  • Fantastic Tours

    This was our first time in Paris and was so glad we heard about LivTours! We went with a private tour of the Louvre, Le Maria’s Food Tour and Montmartre Walking Tour. These private tours were very personal and full of information. Our tour guides, Veronique, Aubrey and Michelle were the best and they answered all the questions we had! I look forward to using LivTours again in the future.
