Exploring the museums of Paris alone can be a daunting experience, but our expert art history guides are on hand to make your visit a breeze – to introduce you to some of the most highly acclaimed works of art in the world, to take you deep into their history, but also to take you away from the tourist track. Our museums tours are lead solely by accredited guides with an abundance of knowledge, who give you the chance to explore some of the most breathtaking exhibitions in the world with a private, personable and approachable guide.
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!

Romain was AMAZING!!! I will 100% be recommending him to our friends! Our Louvre tour was one of my kids favorite things we did and they said it was because of Romain.
Highly recommend. Private tour is a great way to get more personalized insights on Paris history. Guide was very knowledgeable. Will definitely use again.
We have done several tours with Localers and they are definitely worth the money! We are pretty independent travelers, but there is no substitute for local knowledge. Localers has the best guides!
I did 2 tours with Localers and would enthusiastically do more when I return to Paris. The main reason is the quality of the tours themselves, the fact they are authentic experiences, and you learn so much!
