Paris in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Discover Paris' famous Notre Dame Cathedral

Begin your Paris sightseeing tour in the morning with a 1.5-hour guided tour of the magnificent Louvre, widely considered to be among the finest museums in the world.

The Louvre is home to some of the rarest and most valuable treasures known to man, including famous masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo. Wander the hallowed halls with your guide, take in many of the museum’s best-known highlights and feel free to ask any questions you may have along the way.

Leaving the Louvre behind, hop aboard your Seine River Cruise for the short journey over the waves to the iconic Eiffel Tower. Enjoy lunch in the exceptional setting of the 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant on the tower's first floor and take in beautiful views out over the city from your vantage point up the tower. The early afternoon is left free for you to explore the Eiffel Tower at your leisure.

At the end of your time at the Eiffel Tower, board a second Seine River Cruise and head along to Notre Dame Cathedral. Enjoy a 45-minute guided visit of this world-famous building and gain insight into its fascinating history and heritage.

When your tour of Notre Dame finishes, explore further at your leisure or head out to enjoy the rest of your day in France’s beautiful capital. Don’t forget to climb up the tower of Notre Dame Cathedral (own expense) to admire the spectacular views across Paris.

Was a lot of walking, but so much to see. Tour guide had so much information to share about so much. Great way to see Paris if you only have limited time.

Fabulous

This trip is a long day, but we got to see the major sites of Paris on the ground: the Eiffel Tour, the Louvre and Notre Dame. It was very well organized, and our guide Sandrine kept track of all 14 of us throughout the large crowds at each site. The lunch at the Eiffel Tour was worth the price of the entire tour, as we skipped the lines even though we still had a sizeable line to get through security and had lovely 360 degree views of Paris from the 2nd floor. The Louvre visit was about an hour in the museum, but we saw what most people want to see including Venus de Milo, the Mona Lisa and Winged Victory. One could spend a couple of months just in the Louvre! The two boats trips also gave us the iconic Paris experience. Great tour!

Our guide was so wonderful. My son, who speaks French, was great with Madam. Saw all the Icons at the Louvre, sailed to The Eifel Tower and had a fantastic lunch. We then ended up at Notre Dame on Easter Sunday.
A wonderful day and I would do it again!!!

Our tour guide was very passionate and kept our interest the whole tour. I am not much of a museum person but Giggi made it so interesting. Highly recommend.
