Our Top Tip – Skip the Lines

Skip the Louvre Lines

You really don't want to spend your precious time in Paris standing in lines, do you? Neither do we. That's why we always sign up for a tour with an expert guide. It gets past the long lines and directly to the Nike of Samothrace. (For instance!) We're converts — we used to try to do it all on our own… waiting in lines, wandering around the museums. But now, expert guides make our museum experiences line-free and much more fulfilling — we learn so much and we save time.

The Louvre + Musée d'Orsay in One Day

Private Louvre Museum + Musee d'Orsay

In this extraordinary tour, you visit both of the premier Paris museums on a day-long tour with a private guide, bypassing all the queues. The tour size is limited to 8 people, ensuring personal attention — and also pretty much ensuring that this tour will sell out most days.

You spend the morning at the Louvre, then take the typical Parisian lunch break before reconvening at d'Orsay in the afternoon for another in-depth tour. Times can be adjusted to suit you and your group. It's an amazing opportunity and a fabulous way to save time.

Orangerie Museum 2-Hour Tour

Orangerie Museum 2-Hour Private Tour

Go deep into Monet's water lilies on a 2-hour tour with an official guide at l'Orangerie, located in the Jardin des Tuileries. These magnificent panoramic paintings are displayed in two large oval rooms and are not to be missed.

But the Monets are not the only great art to see at l'Orangerie for the rest of the museum is literally filled with the work of masters of late 19th-century and early 20th-century art like Modigliani, Renoir, Picasso and Soutine. This is time well spent.

Skip the Lines at the Eiffel Tower

Best Way To Visit The Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is the most visited monument in the world, and the line-ups are looong. That's why the only way we visit the Tower is by booking a skip-the-line tour before we leave home. The guide takes us past the crowds and up the tower. If you don't want to waste your time in Paris waiting in lines we recommend you do the same.
