Full description
Your exclusive guide will show you the unforgettable City of Lights on this half-day Private Paris Essentials Tour. Visit all of the city’s highlights, starting with the stunning Eiffel Tower, one of the world’s best-known monuments. As you explore the city you’ll also learn about its fascinating history. You’ll marvel at the massive Hôtel des Invalides, built in the 17th century.

From here you’ll see the imposing Arc du Triomphe, the point where all main streets in this part of the city converge.

    Really worth it for groups

    We were 6 people, so it broke down to 50 bucks a piece, which considering the quality of the show makes it one of the best values for money around. We were led around for more than 4 hours, saw every single most important sight in the center of Paris, and since there was no one else with us, we could ask as many questions or request anything we wanted. Honestly, if you're not familiar with Paris and want to get an amazing introduction, get a group together and go for this tour, you won't find something as personal and comprehensive for such a price elsewhere.

    Legitimately pricy

    This is not a cheap offer, but it's an excellent one. The difference lies in the quality: Adrien was an amazing guide and you could tell he was actually trained and not just a student trying to make a few bucks. He knew the background of every place we visited and if we ever had questions about nearby buildings or sights, or other things not included in the tour, he was always very well infomred about those as well and more than happy to venture beyond the original scope of the tour. Completely disproving the stereotype about Parisians' unfriendliness, he made our 4 hours together as enjoyable as they were enlightening. Merci, mon ami!
