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

This special early morning private tour will enable you to view Leonardo Da Vinci’s world-famous masterpiece, the Mona Lisa, without the crowds. On entering the Louvre, your guide will lead you through the maze of halls and corridors straight to the Mona Lisa herself. You’ll pass by many exquisite treasures – but we promise you’ll see them properly later.

The Louvre was formerly the palace of the Kings and Queens of France, and today is the most visited museum in the world. With over 8 miles of galleries, 10,000 years of history, and some 550,000 works of art, “only” 35,000 of which are displayed at any one time, it is essential you have a guide to help you navigate this confusing labyrinth.

Without the usual crowds jostling for prime position, you’ll be able to view the Mona Lisa in a relaxed and peaceful way and hear her story, from the enigmatic smile to the astonishing and shocking theft that took place in 1911.

As other visitors begin to enter, you’ll quietly exit to enjoy a private tour of the other highlights of the Louvre. You’ll see all the major pieces from the Italian Renaissance and the magnificent Greco-Roman antiquities such as the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace. Your tour ends inside the museum, to enable you to continue exploring at your own pace if you so please. You are also welcome to exit the Louvre with your guide, who will be delighted to help you plan the rest of your morning in Paris.

  • Mona Lisa First Viewing Private Tour was awesome!!

    This was an incredible experience. We had the chance to see the Mona Lisa first and enjoy it before the crowds arrived. Thank you, LivTours, for making this possible. Our guide, Meng, was exceptional and taught us so much during our visit to the Louvre.

  • Excellent First Viewing of the Mona Lisa Tour

    Our guide was incredibly effective in getting us to the Mona Lisa as soon as the Louvre opened! Afterward, she provided a fantastic tour of the other Louvre highlights, showcasing her wealth of knowledge. I only wish the tour had been longer! Additionally, LivTours was exceptional to work with, and I appreciate their assistance in setting up my tour!

  • Try the LivTalks for a new experience.

    LivTours offers live talks about a multitude of topics with its fantastic guides. It's different than a virtual tour and feels like a fun conversation with a group of friends as it is led by Angelo, the founder of the company which makes it very easy going and engaging. This is a new experience I highly recommend especially for the people who want to learn more about cultural topics than regular virtual tours.

  • Private tour of Louvre with Josephine

    Josephine's private tour of the Louvre was amazing because we saw the Mona Lisa before the crowds! She took great care to respond to our questions and showed us art we were interested in.
