      Our Skip the line pass was a must! It saved us over 90m minutes in line. Easy to use, pick up your ticket and audio guide at the shop (which is close to the Louvre) and head right into the museum!

      The lines to get a ticket to the Louvre are painfully long. I would highly recommend this ticket if you plan to visit the Louvre.

      Definitely book skip the line tickets. Half the length as no ticket holders.
      Audioswt not very helpful and not really required. You can work you way around the Louvre easily.

      Although the Louvre was a fantastic choice to see while in Paris, this group, Viator leaves a lot to be desired in their instructions and directions to get your actual ticket from the voucher you are given. The address states one thing, however the office, was a 20 minute walk away. You have to either give them $30 to received your Audio device or your ID, which you'll get back when you return them. There was nothing in the information regarding that. Skipping the line was great and we spent three hours in the Louvre enjoying all it had to offer.

      The Louvre is a wonder of treasures and a temple of art. Don’t waste your time in lines, book the skip the line tour and spend the same time in awe of the art treasures

      Great tour. We walked right up and got in without having to stand in a line. I do wish we had been given a map that had numbers that matched the museums.

      We enjoyed the audio guide that highlighted important pieces to see. Perfect for 1st timers! We visited on a quiet day and if busy it might have been a bit frustrating walking over to the office.

      The process of picking up our audio guides was great. Super smooth with friendly staff.Went straight through and avoided long security lines! Worth the $. The audio guide was just the right amount of information and i could go at my own pace. But do yourself a favor and book 1st thing in the am. The Mona Lisa line/cattle call was insane. If you're there early you'll avoid what I went through for a

      Skip the line was wonderful as it can be quite long to get in. The longest wait was the line to pick up the tickets at the tour operator office.

      This was a get way, to find all those famous pieces of art you've heard about. Then take off the audio guide and explore back through to find your own favorite masterpieces. Highly recommend!

      Without the skip the line you will be in line for a LONG time. This museum is a must see since the Mona Lisa is here. I have to say how surprised I was at how small the picture is - I expected it to be much bigger. This was a self-guided tour and included an audio and map to the paintings. Beautiful museum but very crowded when we were there. We selected a self-guided as I am the only real art lover in our group. A three hour guided tour would have been too much for us.

      Completely worth purchasing the “skip the line” ticket! Without the ticket line was up to 3 hours wait time. Audio tour was a nice addition for first timers like us. Schedule early morning as it gets crowded by noon. Ticket is good all day!
