Experience the beauty and history of one of the River Seine's last two natural islands—Ile de la Cité—on a private 4-hour walking tour with a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral. Admire the stunning gothic architecture of this centuries-old church, see its iconic gargoyles and step inside to view its towering vaulted ceilings and learn about its legendary bell ringer from your art historian guide. Then enjoy exclusive skip-the-line access into Sainte-Chapelle—known for its incredible stained glass windows—and the Conciergerie, a once torturous prison where Marie Antoinette served time.
Our tour guide, Johanna, was amazing. We learned so much about history and building.
Vanessa was outstanding
This private tour was exactly what we wanted and expected! Our tour guide was very attentive to our needs and interests. She thoroughly answered every one of our questions, some of which were not related to the exact sights that we were seeing, giving us plenty of background information about Paris and France in general. She was so very knowledgeable about the history, art and architecture of these 3 sights that we felt the tour was worth every penny! Starting the tour promptly and fairly early and having a private tour helped us avoid many of the crowds that we observed were lining up to enter Notre Dame just as we were finishing and going to the next sight.
Our tour with Vanessa was wonderful. She was very kind, and knowledgeable, beyond things we already knew about Paris. We were traveling with our two teenage daughters, and she kept things intersting and real.....it was definitly not a canned tour. We loved it.
