Full description
Admire the Sacré-Cœur Basilica and get stunning views of Paris from Montmartre. Visit Place du Tertre and see a reconstructed windmill before taking the subway to the Île de la Cité, where Paris began. The City of Light started on this very island, growing from a Roman outpost into the most populous and prosperous city in Europe. Above it rises, Notre Dame. Severely damaged by a recent fire, she still stands proudly in the heart of the city; testament to the genius of its design and the endurance of France. Your guide will bring you as close as the ongoing restoration will permit to give you the best views possible. You’ll then cross the river into the historic Latin Quarter with its Gothic churches and winding, cobbled, streets ending at Place Saint-Michel, a gathering place for locals and visitors alike. A short walk down the Seine brings you to the Louvre, where you’ll enjoy a 1-hour lunch break (with recommendations from your guide), before diving into the largest art museum in the world, to see some of its most spellbinding works of art (including the famous Mona Lisa). Say goodbye to your guide at the Eiffel Tower and get a ticket for a 1-hour cruise on the River Seine to use at your leisure, as well as a direct access ticket to go to the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower. Get breathtaking views of the "City of Lights" and its iconic monuments.

An overall great experience. Our guide, Violette was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot and ended up having a great time. It was our most longest in terms of duration and also the most expensive tour we have had in France. Suggest to make sure you’re well rested the day before because you’ll easily do 10k plus steps by the end of it. The weather is a huge factor so be prepared if it rains.

Our group consisted of about 14 people, everyone got a small device with headphones that you could use to hear Daniel, our guide, at any time, even if you were a few meters away, you could always hear him very well. We had a really great day with Daniel, he explained a lot very well. I really recommend this tour to everyone. The tour ends with a climb of the Eiffel Tower and a boat ride at the end. You get the tickets for these 2 things and can then do them on your own. Which we found great. Daniel, thank you for the great day!

The guide, Adam is his name, was great, super personable!! He was funny, told us a lot about the sights. Not only listed facts, but told really interesting things!! He also referred to us as "Team Adam". We weren't just tourists, we were shown the city on a "personal level" that day. When we were in the Louvre, he asked us not only to photograph the Mona Lisa, but to really give us time to look at the painting. We queued as a group and should make sure we stay as a group and not "one here...some there". Adam is a great guide and he is super good with people. He gets 12 out of 10 points from me.
