With a live guide, learn the cathedral’s riveting history of the Ile de la Cité and Notre Dame de Paris throughout the ages. Get expert insight into the cathedral's somber accents and head up to the famous bell towers, where you will perch amongst the gargoyles for a splendid view of Paris. To upgrade your ticket, select a private tour exclusive to just your group.

Choose varies departure time and head to Ile de la Cité to meet your English-speaking guide. With your small group, explore the small island that is notably the epicenter of Paris and learn about the political and cultural importance of this area and the surrounding Seine River. Hear about ever-evolving Paris from antiquity and the dark ages to present day. 

Then explore the breathtaking interior of Notre Dame Cathedral – a relic of Paris’ long and storied past. Originally built in 1160 by the Bishop of Paris, this glorious monument has seen nearly a millennia of turbulence including rioting Huguenots in the 16th century, destruction during the French Revolution and bullet spray during WWII.

Wander the grand space and admire the signature organs, vibrant stained glass windows and the elaborate stone work. Then jump the queue to the bell towers – which can last up to two hours! – and climb the 387 steps to the top. Stand in the footsteps of Victor Hugo’s infamous Hunchback of Notre Dame and see the city as he must have – amongst bells and spires, in the company of ominous yet protective gargoyles.

We were fortunate to have Shannonas our private guide. She was prompt, knowledgeable, and had interesting anecdotes. Worth every penny!

I’ve been in this tour before and went again with friends who haven’t been before and I’m so glad I did. Leo had stories and fun facts that I hadn’t heard before. He was engaging, informative and fun!!!

Loved the tour - the duration, the information and particularly our tour, guide Charlie. We came away knowing so much more about French history, architecture as well as Notre Dame.

This was a very interesting tour. Charley was very knowledgeable and friendly. Worth the price to skip the line. would do this again.

Our tour guide, Charlie, was superb. He was informative and funny without lecturing the tout group. He kept the tour moving without feeling rushed. This was a highlight and I would highly recommend it.

Loved this, again I felt quite privileged not having to wait in line. There was a service on the time of our allocated visit which was cool you got to see some of it, but we also got ushered out of a small area because of it which shortened our time there. Totally recommend the tower climb, so worth it once you are up there. Our guide was great, tour very organised and precise.

the view from the top was fantastic. Second best view in Paris

, Sep 2018

The tour wasn’t good especially the meeting point is a mile away. Three bridges away. Too much walk the our guide must hold something high to find
