Notre Dame: Private Guided Visit

1. Notre Dame: Private Guided Visit

Notre Dame in Paris is one of the city's most visited monuments, second (or equal) only to the Eiffel tower. The comprehensive tour takes you back on a journey of more than 850 years of history. You will go deep into what Paris was like then, how the church came to be and what it stood for. To properly understand its importance and purpose, a picture will be painted of medieval life, thoughts, ideas and conceptions of the world. Like most Gothic cathedrals, Notre Dame is not only a building representative of the era of its conception, but it's also a checkpoint of every successive era. These churches took a long time to build; even when the initial work was finished, they were constantly maintained, with new layers of history added as time went by. This cathedral is a testament to French and Parisian culture. You will learn more about Europe, France and Paris on this tour than in any other site, museum or monument in the city.

Notre Dame Tour with a Small Group

2. Notre Dame Tour with a Small Group

Out of all the tours, monuments or museums to be seen in Paris, this is the one that is not to be missed - furthermore, it is the one that should be the first on your list. The exploration of Paris starts from Notre Dame. This is the place where the city started out. It is the place where the temples of all of the societies occupying this part of the world were, and are, situated. It is the very center of Paris, and the symbolical center of France, Europe, and indeed the world. Notre Dame is a marvel of Gothic architecture - one of the greatest accomplishments of not only western European culture, but of human civilisation in general. The guides are passionate about Gothic architecture and this monument in particular - it is the topic of ongoing research that only gets more and more exciting. It is the local supplier's goal to share that passion with you and introduce you to a world of knowledge hidden in these walls, windows, and even pavements. Notre Dame is an eternal inspiration and an ongoing fascination. Take this visit and you will be surprised at just how much knowledge, wisdom, and genius went into creating this rare jewel of human endeavour, and how much of those rare qualities is communicated to the savant eye that knows where to look. The mission of this tour is to uncover this hidden knowledge and share it with you. While the cathedral is under reconstruction (since the fire in April 2019), entrance to the cathedral is not possible. The tour stays on the outside of the building. The activity provider will resume entering the cathedral as soon as it becomes possible.

Boris was brilliant! Despite the heat and surrounding crowds and not even being able to enter the cathedral he painted a picture rich in history and detail all with aplomb, patience and charm. Thank you, Boris for an unexpectedly lovely afternoon at church!

Boris was a wonderful guide and communicator. Since you cannot enter the cathedral he improvised a great tour and evoked wonderful imagery and history into this 90 minutes. Highly recommend!

Boris was an excellent guide!!!! Most informative guide ever!!!!! Again and again, despite the closed cathedral, the tour was very exciting!!!!!

Despite the challenges of Notre Dame being in repair, our guide did an excellent job sharing information and stories about Notre Dame.

Excellent tour, big thanks to the Guide for making it as interesting and informative as it can be. Loved it!
