What You Can Expect

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.

The best way to see a lot of Paris in one day. We had a terrific, knowledgable guide who navigated through the crowds at the Louvre and bypassing the l-o-n-g entrance lines, gave an in-depth tour of Notre Dame and offered insight during our walk and two boat rides. Well worth the money spent to have someone lead the way in and around Paris' most famous spots.

Thought this was a coach tour. But it is a walking tour. Great tour, our tour guide Joanna was great. Started at the Louvre Museum, and so good to do this tour otherwise would take you weeks to go through. We skipped the line, and our guide showed us the main things of point of interest. Best way to see this museum. Travelled down the Seine River, admiring the sites on a beautiful day. Got to the Eiffel tower and again skipped the line, had a really nice 3 course lunch and coffee, drinks for free on Level 1 restaurant. Took photos, plenty of time to go higher if you want. Then back on the Seine and went to see Notre Dame Cathedral, worth every cent, this is a must, skipping the line and seeing the main sites of Paris. Viator only way to book.

An excellent tour that provided everything that it said it would. The leader franchise was engaging and knowledgable. Highly recommend if you have 1 day in Paris. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower was absolutely beautiful

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.

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!
