    The Magical Tours brand was originally founded in London, England by Dr. Gil Cartland. Having traveled extensively around the world, Dr. Cartland returned home in 1915 to face a large dilemma: how could he best show a city to his friends and acquaintances?

    Everywhere he looked he could not find a service that presented a city the way he envisaged. Tours were very cramped and he did not want his guests feeling like numbers making up a crowd. He wanted a chauffeur to take them to the historic locations and look after the tour vehicle without problems. He also sought a personal guide with a true in-depth knowledge to be able to share with them unknown anecdotes and secret stories, an experience to befit one of the world's greatest city.

    It was through this vision that Paris Magical Tours was formed. These principles remain at the very heart of our tour offerings today.
