Full description

Start your journey in front of Comédie Française and the gardens of the Palais Royal, a former royal palace, just opposite the Louvre. Learn about the building and its park with their history, architecture, and importance to the modern Parisian city culture. Pass by the Louvre Museum and see some of the exhibition rooms from the outside. Follow your guide to the Pyramid of Louvre, easily the most popular place to be in Paris. Enjoy a detailed tour of the area with less emphasis on history and the art inside the museum but more on the local street life of Paris. Once at the Pyramid, observe the Tuileries Garden connecting the Louvre to the Place de la Concorde. It is a place where Parisians celebrate and meet. Look how the setting served as a reference point for the modern development of Paris.

See the historical axis of the two Arc de Triomphe's of the town and Champs-Elysées. Learn how the monuments stand in harmony with their modern setting. Then stay a while in the Square Court (Cour Carré) the place where The Louvre was born, a jewel of Renaissance architecture. Follow the River Seine and go across the famous Pont des Arts, a pedestrian bridge listed as a national historic monument. See the art exhibitions, and immerse in the open-air studio for painters, artists, and photographers drawn to its unique point of view. Watch the Parisiens enjoying a summer picnic if you are there in the season. Getting close to Notre Dame Cathedral, discover Île de la Cité and the surprising facts that this island will offer you. Your guide will bring you as close as the ongoing restoration permits to give you the best views possible. Talk about Notre Dame and discuss the impacts of the recent fire and the future of the building.  Say goodbye to your guide at Notre Dame Cathedral with many references and recommendations for Paris so that you can discover more of the city at your leisure.

The tour guide contacted us beforehand so that we could meet on time the next day, the tour was interesting, a lot could be told and shown. We were lucky enough to be in a group of two, so that our running pace and questions were taken into account.

A great way to get to know a city and world-famous sights individually - in a way that details are remembered afterwards.

The tour was a lot of fun with our guide Sabriye Manea. We experienced and learned a lot about Paris. Is recommended. We were also lucky enough to be just the two of us, were able to ask any questions and were guided individually.
