Your Paris sightseeing tour begins with hotel pickup by minivan. With your private guide, enjoy exploring the city in a more intimate and personalized setting than a bigger bus tour. Settled comfortably into your private vehicle, pass by iconic attractions like the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, the opera house (Palais Garnier), Place Vendôme, Place de la Concorde and the Champs-Elysées.
Visit Notre Dame Cathedral on Ile de la Cité, where you can explore the Gothic cathedral independently, and then head to the Eiffel Tower for lunch at the first-floor 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant. As you enjoy your meal 311 feet (95 meters) above the ground, admire views of the Seine and the Trocadéro from the restaurant’s large windows.
Following lunch, continue your minivan tour to Montmartre, Paris’ historically bohemian district set on a hill in the 18th arrondissement. The home of the Moulin Rouge, Montmartre is known for its cabarets, artists and cobblestone streets. You have free time here to wander around on your own, perhaps checking out some works of art, having your portrait drawn at Place du Tertre or snapping photos of Paris from the hilltop Basilique du Sacré-Coeur.
Next up is your final activity, a cruise on the Seine River. Aboard a riverboat, glide under the city’s ornate bridges and past cultural attractions like the Grand Palais and Musée d’Orsay while you listen to onboard narration. Your comprehensive day tour then ends with hotel drop-off.
