Expert Guide & Small Groups
On our Louvre night tours, your expert guide will help you and your small group navigate the Louvre’s maze of masterpieces. Instead of feeling overwhelmed, you’ll be engaged from the start, as your guide explains specific works on your carefully-planned route, sharing the stories, details, and legends that make them so extraordinary. Who was the real model for the iconic Mona Lisa*? Which French revolution was Delacroix’s ‘Liberty Leading the People’ inspired by? You’ll even hear about the kings and queens that once reigned from the Louvre when it was the Royal Palace. Like its artworks, the Louvre itself has an extraordinary history to be discovered.
After your adventure in art, culture, and history, you’ll wind down the tour with a visit to one of Paris's most celebrated and beautiful wine-tasting venues. This experience is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip marked by an authenticity that few tour operators can deliver. Recognized throughout the city for its excellence, this elegant wine establishment has special treatment in store especially for you. You’ll be seated at your reserved table to begin your tasting flight of three delightful French wines accompanied by local cheese and other delicacies. Don’t hesitate to ask your guide or the sommelier questions – whether about the wine, the food, the city, or the sights. This is Paris as few visitors have experienced it.
With a twilight tour of the most famous artworks in the Louvre including delicious wine and food in a genuinely unique context that embodies the elegance of the City of Light, there is no doubt you will feel immersed in the best that Paris has to offer on this unparalleled tour.
*Please note that due to renovation work carried on inside the Louvre until mid-October 2019, we might not be able to cover some artworks such as the Mona Lisa. Although this is not under our control, your guide will do their best to provide a quality service in line with the advertised tour length.
