great way to get an overview

Love these buses and Paris is a large city and has lots of visitors. Traffic was heavy and buses were full. Drivers always are helpful and drive safe.

best way to see the major things in Paris

In my opinion it's the best way to see the major things in Paris. I would recommend the 3 days bilet. 1 or 2 days is to less to see all, even if you are very fast.

Everything was great!

What a lovely way to spend our last hours in Paris with your River cruise...We enjoyed it so very much as we could see so much of Paris in a relaxed way. I especially appreciated getting close to your Notre Dame .

Good quality tour

Great guide with a pleasant attitude which was really nice. Only a couple of people on this tour which makes a real difference too other tours. makes for a pleasant stay in Paris and the personal tour off the highlights in the Louvre was great as it is huge.

Picture Perfect #MonaLisa

Contrary to popular belief, you CAN take photos inside the art museum! But remember to turn your flash off. 

No camera on earth can do justice to an artwork “in the paint” as it were. So instead of trying to capture Renaissance masterpieces on a smartphone, why don’t you snap one of these photogenic spots from around this Paris art museum? 
  • The Pyramid: like it or love it, this controversial sculpture against the neoclassical building makes a great photo!
  • The Lamassu: enormous bulls with the heads of men, these colossal & ancient statues are truly insta-worthy. 
  • Musée du Louvre panoramic shot from Le Café Marly. With your admission to Louvre, you’ll see all this and more!
Got a winner? Choose your best snap from one of the three most instagrammable spots listed above, post it on your IG, and tag #dotravelgram to be featured. 

Louvre Museum Tickets: Visitor Tips

  • On Wednesdays & Fridays the museum is open later: stay for sunset views from the upper windows. 
  • Use the “secret Louvre entrance” of the Gallery at the Porte des Lions on the Georges Pompidou side.
  • Remember, drinks are expensive, and restrooms are few & far between when you visit Louvre museum, so be prepared! 
  • Most of the descriptions of the artwork are in French only, so to truly understand & appreciate the collection, a guided tour is highly recommended.
  • With nearly 40,000 works in 300 rooms, don’t attempt to see it all! Plan ahead and spend quality time with a fine selection of art. 
  • 2-3 hours is the recommended amount of time to gain an appreciation for Paris’ best arthouse.
  • Short on time? Make the museum one of your top stops on a Paris hop on hop off bus tour.
  • As the largest art museum in the world, it is inevitably overwhelming. For a relaxing experience and to ensure you visit the Louvre highlights, book a Louvre museum tour and let your expert guide take you around.

Louvre Museum Tour: Prepare Your Visit

  • Wear comfortable shoes! The museum is spread over 60,000 feet and you may be walking for hours. Don’t let aching feet distract you from the stunning artwork.
  • Hydrate beforehand: there are very few drinking fountains in the museum and the beverages in the cafe are pricey. 
  • Download the Louvre App on your smartphone, for an interactive map of all the floors. 
  • This is the second most popular attraction in all of Paris, so expect huge crowds and long lines. If you don’t want to waste precious vacation times in the queue, purchase your skip the line Louvre museum tickets ahead of time.
  • The temporary exhibitions in Paris museums change all the time, check online to see what will be showing during your visit, as you may need separate tickets for the Louvre museum and other Paris attractions.
