Why join the crowd when you can have a private evening tour of the Louvre museum
and discover the hidden treasures of the Louvre ?

The Louvre Museum is one of the largest museums in the world, but can sometimes feel overwhelming and crowded.

But when night falls this immense palace suddenly becomes an almost intimate place, where discovering small rooms filled with countless treasures, quietness and darkness outside makes us feel, with our Louvre evening tour, like walking into a very impressive private art collection. Which is exactly what it used to be, the private art collection of French Kings!

If you have a particular artist, era or subject that interests you, don't hestitate to ask.

To give a sense of scale, since the Louvre is 9 miles of corridors: aiming to see every item displayed at the Louvre museum for one minute, 8 hours a day would take nearly 3 months... This is why the tour is about 4 hours, to get a chance to discover some of those treasures!

To get inspiration as to what wa are able to see, visit the Louvre treasures page.

During an evening tour of the Louvre, not only there are less visitors, but we may end up with a magical moment, alone with some of the world's greatest treasures.
Other museums, for example the musée d'Orsay, open at night on Thursdays, so our musée d'Orsay evening tour is a perfect addition to the Louvre visit, from Antiquity till the 19th century, then at Orsay with Impressionism.

Discovering the Louvre museum at night with us will be an art journey travelling through thousands of years and across most of the world.

For the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death, we will also admire his genius with the largest collection of Leonardo artworks anywhere, with five paintings.

Evening at the Louvre private tour testimonial

...we recommend this tour enthusiastically and completely without reservation.

The evening tour of the Louvre with Art Journey was a highlight of our first trip to Paris. Our guide was friendly, open to our requests, and incredibly knowledgeable about the art and the art history of the works we viewed. It was fun and enlightening talking with him. We learned so much in just 4 hours!

The Louvre would have been overwhelming on our own and we would have seen only a small fraction of what we got to see with Art Journey. When we return to Paris next year we are definitely booking at least one more tour with them. In short, we recommend this tour enthusiastically and completely without reservation.

...and if felt as though we had the Louvre to ourselves.

I have had the pleasure of visiting the Louvre three times in my past travels to Paris. This time around, we arranged a private evening tour with Art Journey and it was a high point of our trip. Our guide studied at the Louvre for three years and clearly knows it like the back of his hand. We navigated corridors, elevators, stair cases and wings seamlessly, and if felt as though we had the Louvre to ourselves. He not only showed us the highlights (along with our requests to visit old favorites), but he gave us a context for why certain pieces were considered to be significant. We learned not to just appreciate the art, but to challenge pre-conceived notions and uncontested beliefs about each piece. We left the tour with a memorable learning experience.
We would highly recommend a private tour of the Louvre with Art Journey.

You've created a new type of tour, the "art fitness" tour.

I wanted to thank you again for the incredible evening tour of the Louvre last week. All 4 of us enjoyed it immensely. You helped us to see the expected wonders in new ways, and debunked the common misconceptions! That was entertaining.
You also took us to the unexpected wonders of the museum and challenged us to understand their significance. It was educational and really interesting. We had asked for a crash course of art history, and thank goodness our legs were up for it. You've created a new type of tour – the "art fitness" tour.
Without your guidance and energy, we would have missed many of those things that were the most exciting to see. All in all, that was certainly the most unique and one of the most enjoyable tours we have ever taken.
Thank you again for a great experience.

You were able to make sure that each person found it to be an intimate and memorable experience.

A quick note of thanks for sharing your knowledge and insights with us on a great evening tour of the Louvre.

Your guided tour was a special experience for everyone in our family, from the first-timers in our group to those who had seen the Louvre several times before. You were able to make sure that each person found it to be an intimate and memorable experience. You even kept it interesting for the kids. And I'll say this: we found ourselves at Versailles a few days later, wishing we had your guidance and knowledge along for the day. We won't make that mistake again.

...the trip to the Louvre was the biggest highlight in Paris.

For us, the trip to the Louvre was the biggest highlight in Paris; we enjoy sharing details of that trip with our friends. Joe told me that because of that trip, he's becoming more interested in the arts and humanities.

Once again, thank you for showing us the treasures of the Louvre that evening.

You brought art to life!!

When searching reviews and websites for tour options, your site stood out. First your website was very professional and not the standard flashy touristy sites that offer "skip the lines" and everything else. We took this as sign that we were dealing with a professional outfit... and we were not disappointed!!
However, what was truly worth every euro was the quality of the experience. To take a place that would take months to visit, to boil it down into 3 ½ hours (which was all the time we had to spend there), and make you feel like you truly experienced the Louvre is an art!! Our guide was fantastic and simply made the Louvre the highlight of our short time in Paris. You brought art to life!!
Thank you for a wonderful experience!!!
