The Louvre is a must visit in Paris. It was great to have the timed option and not have to worry about queuing for tickets. We went to the meeting point and could see a board with our time on and it was clear where to go. There was still a small wait to get through security but it didn’t take long. I was on a trip with my sister and we had made a list of the items we wanted to see in the museum - The Mona Lisa (obviously), Venus de Milo, Victory, etc. Even if you don’t have anything in particular you want to see it’s still a fabulous experience just walking around.

Meeting point was as stated so easy to connect with the guide. This skip the queu guided tour meant we went straight through and literally skipped the long queues outside saving a lot of time.. The guide was very knowledgable on all the works of art. Any questions he answered happily with more information.

Very easily we found our way to get into Luvre within 10 min. There was a queue of course but we visited Thursday so queue was short

Really well organised and quick queuing system, reasonably price and always a pleasure visiting Le Louvre. 5 stars.

Needed to wait like 10 mins but understandable as the museum is extremely busy, otherwise it was excellent
