The itinerary

After meeting your guide you’ll be escorted to the Louvre’s entrance with VIP access tickets. This former royal residence concentrates the most impressive collection in France and is filled with renowned works of art like Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Veronese’s Wedding at Cana, David’s The Coronation of Napoleon. Anything strikes you? Your guide will sure point the hidden details out! We‘ll keep going with the whaos and ooohs hitting the Greek sculptures like the Winged Victory of Samothrace and the gracious Venus de Milo.

Then it’s onto the D'Orsay Museum for the Impressionists, Post Impressionists, the Realists, and the sculptures of Rodin. Learn what made Van Gogh tick as you admire those classic self-portraits and bedroom interiors. Discover life as a carefree Parisian in Renoir’s “Dance at the Moulin de la Galette”. Admire the graceful pose of a young ballet dancer sculpted by Degas. Your guide will break down complex artistic ideas into simple terms to make the museum accessible to your party.

This private tour is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to observe a broad spectrum of art in a manageable period of time. Give us five hours and we’ll give you a comprehensive look across 2,000 years of history’s most beautiful creations!
