    Meeting Point

    Your guide will meet you at the Arc du Carrousel. This is a monumental arch with a horse-drawn chariot on top, situated across the road from the courtyard of the Louvre. Standing with your back to the entrance of the Louvre Museum and Pyramid, you will see it across the road, past the roundabout, before the entrance to the Tuileries Garden (Jardin du Tuileries).
    Arriving by metro: Take metro lines 1 or 7 and get off at the metro stop Palais Royal Musee du Louvre. Take the exit marked rue de Rivoli. Cross the rue de Rivoli into the Louvre courtyard and you will see the arch.
    Arriving by taxi: Ask to be dropped off at the Arc du Carrousel du Louvre. Your taxi should be able to stop just in front.
    Arriving by foot: Walk into the centre of the Louvre courtyard where the glass pyramid is. With your back to the pyramid you will see the arch in the gardens in front of the Louvre.

    Ending Point

    The confirmation voucher includes the local activity operator’s contact details. They’re a nice bunch, and will happily answer any logistical questions you may have. Please give them a call at least 24 hours before your organised activity to reconfirm.

    Due to renovation work carried on inside the Louvre until mid-October 2019, we might not be able to cover some artworks such as the Mona Lisa. Although this is not under our control, your guide will do his best to provide a qualitative service in line with the advertised tour length.

    Extra measures may be implemented at some venues due to heightened global security. As a result, we may experience delays in getting through mandatory security checks when entering these venues.

    There are restrictions on the size of bags. To avoid disruptions or possible denied entry, we strongly suggest that you avoid bringing large purses, bags, or backpacks on your tour.

    Gratuities to guides providing excellent service are appreciated.
