The Louvre is always great! Be aware you must go to the office of Paris City Vision and get the actual tickets then they will give you instructions on where to go to enter. We made the mistake of standing in line a few places and getting turned away before we finally were told by a kind young lady where to go.

I loved the app that allowed me to explore the Louvre at my own pace and provide background and structure. The boat ride was a great way to wrap up the day while leaving some additional time to explore the city.

Frustrating, time consuming, experience.

Instead of getting a ticket online we had to search out an agency office to get a hard ticket. We ended up at a tourist gift shop than we were sent around the corner to the agency. When we got to the museum, We discovered we didn't like the iPhone audio tour and wanted to go back and get the museum audio guide. The museum staff told us to go back to get the audio guide which is located out side the tix entrance. We misplaced the hard tix went back to the agency and they said we could not regain entrance with the same tix, so reprinting our tix wouldn't work. I would recommend just going to the museum website get a ticket online and get the museum audio guide. This was frustrating, time consuming. Not what I expected from Viator.

That it very difficult to find the place to pick up equipment. Was not told when signing up. And no one at the line/ entrance knew where we had to go to pick up tickets. Walked the same place 3 times. A tour guide from some company finally told us. And service was not friendly.

We booked this trip literally last minute and having read the previous reviews we did not expect a smooth entrance. On the contrary, we we given access at an exact time ( even 30 min earlier) WITHOUT waiting on the long line (it was really enormous) Entrance is downstairs at the Carrousel du Louvre. We were given also tickets to the river cruise, which do not have deadline and could be used anytime. We save those for next time, hopefully. Overall, this is the best value for money. Highly recommend.

Unclear instructions. Had to buy tickets again from Louvre.
Lewis_G
, Apr 2022
Waiting in line forever only to be told that my tickets weren’t accepted. It was highly misleading to have a “get tickets” button when those tickets only entitled you to get the real tickets at a place that was nowhere near where you wanted to go. I had to repurchase the real tickets from the Louvre, who told me next time to buy from the official website. Point taken.

Do not book- we were declined admission
Gillian_L

Do not book with them. We were due to go in on 7th April. Birthday treat. It was pouring down with rain and no Viator team accessible as we searched high and low for them ahead of our timed entrance. No priority admission was offered. We asked the Louvre team for assistance and they showed us a notice to say that Viator and other ticket companies on a list were not valid. No Viator staff on chat or at the end of the phone. I am now arguing with them about a refund.

Not worth the money
Emma_B

Not worth the money. Pick up point difficult to find, no VIP access required, audio guide rubbish. Would be cheaper to pay for normal access. Cruise was very good but again cheaper when you get on. Very disappointed as have used Viator for other trips but this has definitely put me off using them again or recommending them!

This ticket was not sufficient for access to the exhibits, we ended up repaying entrance fee and audio fee at the museum. Don’t waste your time paying for this.

Crap

I booked tickets with this sham company and they could not email me the tickets to enter the louvre. I lost all my money as they didn’t refund it. I rang the company and they had me on the phone for a half an hour as I stood in the rain at the louvre. I didn’t see after all as my flight was booked to leave the same dY. very dissatisfied and disappointed. Stay away

DO NOT BUY!!!
Justin_H

SCAM! DO NOT BUY! Downloaded my ticket and entered the Louvre, to be told by them it was not a valid ticket! I had to buy new tickets on the door. Contacted Viator customer services to get a refund to be told the tickets were non refundable and had to be collected at an address in Paris, even though the website gave me the option to download them. It was not made clear when booking that i had to go to collect a physical ticket. And given that there was the option to download them it is VERY misleading. Viator customer services were no help at all and it was a complete waste of time and money. Using this site ruined what should have been an enjoyable day.

You pay for an extra headache. Just go on your own.
Edward_V

Just go on your own with the museum audio guide. Don’t book this nonsense. The tour costs a pretty penny, so intuitively you would think it’s convenient, like the meeting place would be right outside of the Louvre for example at an easy to spot landmark 10 minutes early with someone to spot and walk in with. But that would just be intuitive. What actually happens is you are given very confusing instructions to meet 3 blocks away and outside of ANOTHER museum with its own own line and ticket booth. It takes you 10 minutes to get there from the main square of the louvre with the pyramid and longer to figure out what’s even going on. If you don’t figure out to meet at not-the-louvre location on time (3 minutes late), don’t worry. They just leave without you without reaching out first. And don’t try to call anyone or message someone for help because they won’t answer. They definitely won’t refund you either under any circumstances within 24 hours and they’ll say it’s because you paid for a ticket, but the Louvre is free on Tuesdays (the day I went) and regular admission is 17€ on any other day. So either I got a magical 62€ ticket per person or they’re just taking my money. No tour, no refund. To be honest just save the headache and money on these stupid tours and their phony “skip the line” ticket as there is almost never a line over 10 mins. The guided audio tour with headphones that the museum gives you for 5€ was really great and pretty much all you need to enjoy the otherwise amazing museum. Probably much
