What to expect

Planning a visit to one of the world’s greatest art collections calls for special attention. With over 35,000 pieces on display and over 8 million visitors filling its halls yearly, the Louvre can be quite overwhelming! But we’ll let you in on a little secret: when most tourists have finished their sightseeing for the day – the Louvre remains open to those few travellers who are in the know and looking for a unique and less-crowded way to experience its wonders. This specially crafted Skip the Lines and the Crowds: Semi-Private Louvre Museum Evening tour takes advantage of this special opportunity and complements the relaxing experience with a few glasses of wine at a nearby, award-winning Parisian wine bar.

Standing before the Mona Lisa without climbing over the masses of picture-taking tourists, just to get a quick look? Admiring the Venus de Milo without fear of being trampled by the crowds? It may be evening time at the Louvre, but you are certainly not dreaming. This experience is possible in small groups of 25 people or less. Let your eyes wander as your expert guide shows you masterpiece after masterpiece. Your guide has designed your itinerary so you can admire all of the classic highlights and takes advantage of the time you saved by skipping the lines and not fighting the crowds, to show you even more of the collection. You will be delighted by your guide’s knowledge and insight; she is, after all, an expert who knows the Louvre inside and out.

After your tour of the Louvre, you will be escorted to a beautiful 18th-century Parisian mansion just a short walk away, where you will be able to visit a spectacular wine cellar and enjoy a flight of wine (3 glasses selected especially for your group) and a buffet of typical French cheeses and charcuterie. As you relax with your group, an expert sommelier is on hand to provide information about the wines and the food, as well as about the beautiful building, its history and the original vaulted wine cellars, still used for storing wine today.

Then choose your favourite of the three wine varieties. Sit back, relax and enjoy a glass of your prized preference while you design your own custom label. At the end of the experience, a bottle filled with your succulent selection, adorned with your one-of-a-kind personalized label will be yours to take home and enjoy.

If you are an art and wine lover, our truly unique skip-the-line evening tour with wine tasting is the ideal choice for you.
