What to expect
Delve into the history of Paris’s landmarks and artistic treasures on this guided tour. Meet your local guide on the Ile de la Cité, one of two natural islands in the Seine River and the founding site of the ancient city. Stroll among the island’s historic attractions, including the Gothic Notre Dame Cathedral. Walk along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed riverbanks of the Seine River, stopping to learn about famous bridges like the Pont Neuf and Pont des Arts. See many of the world-famous monuments that line the river, including the Jardin des Tuileries, Musée d'Orsay, Champs-Elysées, Musée de l'Orangerie, Place de la Concorde, and La Madeleine. Listen as your guide shares the legends and history of these sights, and explore tucked-away spots that many visitors miss. Your walking tour concludes at the most famous landmark of all — the Eiffel Tower. Rest your feet and enjoy lunch at a local café near the beautiful Trocadero (own expense), then board a private vehicle bound for the Louvre Museum. Skip to the front of the notoriously long line and head straight inside. One could easily spend months exploring the sprawling galleries, but your guide will lead you directly to the museum’s most famous and important works, plus many lesser-known treasures that are often overlooked. Stand before ancient Greek and Roman sculptures such as the Venus de Milo, and admire masterworks of European painting including Géricault's The Raft of the Medusa, Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People and, of course, Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Gain insight into the astonishing architecture of the museum itself, originally built as a palace for Napoleon. After your guided tour concludes, continue exploring more of the world-renowned collection on your own if you wish.

Sights of Paris and Skip the Line Louvre Tour
Mar 2020 • Couples
We had an amazing day touring the sights of Paris and the Louvre with Taylor! She was an excellent guide and answered our questions so thoughtfully! She was such fun and was delightful to spend time with. She kept us moving, but we never felt rushed. Her knowledge is expansive and we felt that we could probably point at just about any piece of art and she would be able to tell us the history, context, and it’s importance—she’s that good! This is definitely an experience I would recommend and we will refer friends to both Babylon, and, specifically to Taylor.

Francesca was absolutely amazing! So sweet and knowledgeable and put up with all our questions! If we had gone to the Louvre by ourselves, it would have been overwhelming AND we would have missed out on such cool information! We would recommend our tour guide a million times over. Thanks

Jan 2020 • Couples
I am a very skeptical person but I went ahead and booked this tour and I am so glad I did. Our tour guide Romain was extremely knowledgeable about the city and especially familiar with the Louvre. He was very friendly and welcomed all of our questions and even suggested a wonderful spot for lunch. It is a walking tour but it went at a slow enough pace that we didn’t tire out plus you will get a close up look at everything. I highly recommend this tour!

Great last minute booking
Found them online after another operator canceled due to the strike in the city. Dasha was on-time, knowledgeable and relaxed. The tour wasn't rushed and I saw more than I thought I would, given the time. She gave a great highlights tour of the louvre.

Great tour by Lili
Dec 2019
Lili gave myself and another couple an excellent tour of the Louvre. In such a massive museum, a guide is essential. Lili gave us the highlights in about 2.5 hours. From the medieval to Venus (Aphrodite) du Milo to of course the Mona Lisa she keep us learning, entertained, and moving! The small tours are the ways to go; as we watched the smaller tours just get a drive by she took the time to explain the works completely and with very cool stories. Perfect tour.

Best tour of our 2 week Europe trip!
May 2018 • Couples
My husband and I did the semi-private walking tour with Lily, who was a fabulous guide. It was our favorite tour on our 4-city tour of Europe. Lily was an incredibly knowledgable guide who was able to take the history of Paris architecture and art and weave it together into an incredibly engaging story. She gave background on how everything from Notre Dame to works in the Lourve reflected French culture and thought during their time period and how they continue to do so today. I highly recommend the tour if you want to learn the story about some of the most historical pieces of Paris.

Fantastic
Jan 2018 • Friends
My friend and I recently did the Semi-Private Tour with Lucia to Notre-Dame, the Louvre and Paris Historical Walk. Let me tell you, this was fantastic. I'm not a huge museum person, but when in Paris you have to visit the most popular museum in the world. Lucia did an amazing job of engaging us, keeping us in suspense and explaining everything in great detail. It was a small group of just three of us so it really felt like a personalized-to-us tour which was awesome. I definitely recommend!
