Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

If you've been to Paris before and want to see more of the city away from the main attractions, this is the tour for you! You can let your guide drive you away from the well-worn tourist paths to see what this city really has to offer among the cobbled alleyways and hidden squares.

What You Can Expect

Best Private Tour: 2CV Secret Paris Tour

Drive through Place Vendome on your tour of secret Paris

Meet your private guide near Opera Garnier or at your central Paris hotel, and then hop aboard your 2CV car. Sit in the passenger seat as your guide takes care of the driving, allowing you to admire the sights. Throughout your tour, enjoy several photo stops and chat with your guide about Paris’ off-the-beaten-path sites as well as your 2VC car.

Introduced in the mid-1940s, the economical Citroen 2CV cars quickly became a popular sight on French roads. The cars’ design has changed a lot over the past few decades, but the original models are still held in fond regard. Your tour takes place in one of these much-loved originals – a vintage convertible 2CV.

Avoiding the well-trodden sites of the city center, your tour focuses on the city’s hidden gems. Discover the chic delights of Place Vendôme, the elegant square lined with boutiques, jewelers and ritzy hotels. Swing past Kiosque des Noctambules, a contemporary piece of street art by French artist Jean-Michel Othniel, and then stop for photos by Stravinsky Fountain. The water feature is embellished with colorful sculptures that are said to represent running water.

Visit the neighborhood of Le Marais to see Place du Marché Sainte-Catherine, a peaceful square, and learn about the area’s buskers and artists from your guide. Other notable attractions around Le Marais include Hôtel de Sully and Hôtel de Sens, two lavish private mansions.

After 1.5 hours exploring the city, finish your 2CV tour with a drop-off near Opera Garnier or at your central Paris hotel.

Please note: 2CVs are small compared to modern vehicles, so with comfort in mind, bookings are only accepted for three people per car, with one driver assigned per trio. Should your group be larger, no worries! Up to nine people can book this private tour, and each group of three ride in a separate car while traveling together in a convoy.

Best ever we hit all the major places and even went down a tiny rue that no other car could fit into. We saw almost everything in an hour and a half. Our tour guide Kevin was great. The back seat had no seat belts though.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

We loved this great tour. Our guide was very informative and we enjoyed the back roads of Paris.

My husband and I did this and loved it. Kevin was the perfect driver/guide. The car was fun and enabled us to see the back streets and alleyways a tour bus could never have managed. My husband has loved walking the streets of Paris but is no longer able to do it. He was dreading just sitting in the hotel while others in our group explored. This was perfect - he saw as much or more than they did - and had bragging rights about the fantastic ride. We have done several tours of Paris but would definitely recommend this one and do it again ourselves - requesting Kevin, of course. It was refreshing to have a guide who we could have a conversation with and learned so much about the past, present and future of Paris, along with the gossip behind the doors we past.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

We loved it. The guide was very knowledgeable, yet good fun. We went down some tiny streets and enjoyed seeing places of interest that we would never have found on our own, or on a regular bus tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

It was great riding around in the 2CV convertible, taking in the sights. Great experience!

Paul, our driver spoke great English, he was very knowledgeable and took us to certain parts of Paris that we hadn't seen before, which was really nice to do. He asked us where we'd like to be dropped off when the tour was finished. We thought that was a great touch! Thoroughly recommend doing this tour!!! The Citroen 2CV is a querky touch too!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Thoroughly loved our morning discovering the secret side of Paris and the bonus was doing it in 2CV. Our driver/guide, Vincent, was great and shared quirky anecdotes and personal stories to add to the enjoyment. The time went so quickly which must be a good sign. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Europe. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone considering it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2CV secret tour of Paris for my wife's 40th birthday. We visited districts which we haven't even been to before and we've now been to Paris 6 times. Christophe our guide was very knowledgeable and provided some interesting facts about the parts we were visiting. Great experience.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Great fun and an excellent way to get your bearings. 2CVs are in Paris what minis are in London!
