Explore Paris and walk through the must-see Louvre Museum and Tuileries Gardens, on this immersive private tour!

Join a local historian who will guide you through the journey of the Louvre’s evolution, its famous historic buildings and architectural highlights. A building used both for protection and luxury, we'll trace the history of the Grand Louvre Palace and its artistic heritage which goes back much further than the museum. 

We’ll hear about the ancient tales that live in this museum, as well as learn more about the Tuileries Gardens that surround it. We'll stand at the iconic pyramid structure of the Louvre and learn how it took inspiration from the pyramids of Giza.

We'll visit the most iconic spots such as the Colonnade de Perrault, Cour Carré, Cour Napoleon, and the Tuileries Palace, as you finish the tour with this cultural adventure in this must-see picturesque part of the city.
