Is it a guided tour?
Do I have a full access to the museum?
No, this is not a guided tour. You will meet your host who will give you your tickets, help you to go through security, give you a short introduction to the museum and also suggest some itineraries based on what you would prefer to see.
Do I need to have my ID on me?
Yes, you have a full access to permanent collection and all temporary exhibitions. In rare cases, some parts may be closed due to renovations. Some special exhibits may be unavailable without advance reservations and additional payments.
Do I need to give all the names of travellers?
Yes, you may be asked to present your ID or passport in order to prove your identity on the ticket.
Are there audio guides?
Yes, those tickets are timed and individual, all the names are required. Should you not provide all the names, the reservation may be cancelled.
Are there lockers available?
Audio guides are not included but they are available at the Louvre Museum, your host will show you how to get them.
Can I take pictures inside the Museum?
Yes, there are lockers available and your host will help you with them. However, large suitcases are not allowed inside the museum.
What happens if I'm late and miss the group?
Taking pictures is permitted but some areas may prohibit the use of flash photography.
Is there food and drink available for purchase during my visit in the museum?
Please arrive 15 minutes early. You may not be able to catch up with the host if you are late. The faster entry tickets are timed, therefore there is only a small window of time when you can enter.
What is the tipping or gratuities policy?
There is food and drinks available for purchase inside the museum.
Tips are always appreciated by our guides, but never expected. They should be given if you believe your host did an outstanding job, and further, if you as an individual want to demonstrate your appreciation to the host for that job well done.
Your Louvre host will be waiting 15 minutes before your entrance time, with your tickets, in front of the Louvre Museum. The closest address to this exact spot is 10 Place du Carrousel 75001. Your host will be in front of the giant pyramid, near the statue of Louis XIV (this is a man on a horse) and holding a sign that says Louvre Tickets With Host.
