Tour Itinerary

The Paris Day Tours are essential to any visitor wanting to truly discover the best of the City of Lights.

The tour takes you to the main sightseeing locations of both the Right and the Left banks of Paris, including many of the hidden streets and squares which the tour buses miss.

Covering all the sights on the 3 Hour Half-Day Tours, the 5 Hour Day Tours add an introduction to the Left bank of Paris, notably the area of Paris' most beautiful park, the Jardin du Luxembourg. Ticket options with fast track entrance are also offered to avoid the majority of the lines and enjoy visits inside one of three possible famous landmarks, along with a short refreshment break for food/shopping.

Enjoy a visit through the Champs de Mars for stunning photo opportunities at the Eiffel Tower, before learning about its origins for the World's Fair of 1889. Hear stories from Napoleon's attempts to expand his empire, while taking in panoramic views across the Champs Elysees from the Arc de Triomphe. Then enjoy a spectacularly scenic drive over the River Seine to discover ancient Paris, for guided walks through Île de la Cité and Notre Dame Cathedral, a wonder of French gothic architecture where the legend of the hunchback was born, before crossing over to the Left Bank for a guided visit through the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg.

Our tours are fully escorted, whether with a professional driver-guide at standard level (one person) or with your own sightseeing team at the VIP levels* (professional tour guide plus, in addition, a chauffeur), so that you never miss a beat.

There are no parking problems or walking long distances to see the sights. The curbside service stops right by the attractions, away from the masses.

At standard level photo stops are made with commentary throughout. At our VIP levels with your own expert guide and extra chauffeur, stops are made at the key landmarks for you to go outside on walking tours led by your guide to sightsee in detail, hearing anecdotes and stories about London's past and present, while your chauffeur driven vehicle waits with no parking worries.

Come and discover over 1000 years of history and experience the grandeur that is Paris in the most comfort and tranquility.
