What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Customize Your Perfect Day in Paris

Experience the sights and attractions of your choice

Make the most of your time in Paris with a tour that’s tailor-made to suit your desires. Before you arrive, speak with your local guide on the phone to share your interests and ideas so he or she can prepare a perfect itinerary in advance.
On the morning of your tour, meet your friendly guide at a convenient Central Paris location of your choice. Set off to explore the city’s many delights without worrying about a thing. Your guide will arrange all transportation, which may include riding the metro, buses to get you where you want to go, from famed museums like the Louvre and Musée d’Orsay to charming local parks and gardens (all entrance fees and activities at own expense). 
If you have specific ideas in mind, your guide will make them happen efficiently, while sharing a Parisian’s perspective along the way. Or, let your guide pick local attractions and tucked-away gems that most visitors miss. You set the pace for the day and stop as often as you like. When hunger strikes, your guide will lead you to some of the best dining spots in town, whether you crave a casual café or fine dining (own expense). 
See below for a sample itinerary of what your perfect day in Paris could include.


Example Itinerary:
9am: Meet your private guide at your central Paris hotel. You will be introduced to the secrets of your new neighborhood, such as the best bakeries, convenient metro and bus stops and hidden-away parks and gardens. The guide will also give you museum information and a metro pass.

9:15am: Tour Notre Dame with your guide, and while admiring the building’s striking French Gothic architecture, learn about its relevance as the focal point of Catholicism in France. Take a stroll around the mysterious yet overlooked streets hiding behind Notre Dame itself.

10:30am: Walk along the UNESCO-listed banks of the River Seine to Saint-Louis Island, a natural island in the middle of the river, and then stop for ice cream at its legendary ice cream parlor, Berthillon.

12:30pm: Take an insider tip from your guide for the best place to eat lunch, and head to a brasserie where Gerard Depardieu is said to enjoy eating. While you relax, your guide will help you to arrange a dinner reservation at a hip Parisian bistro within walking distance of your hotel.

1:45pm: Meet your guide and explore Luxembourg Gardens. If you've got kids, they'll enjoy a pony ride while the rest of you stroll around the Grand Bassin pond, admiring the fountains and manicured gardens that make the park so popular. Pop into a Dalloyau patisserie to buy a famous Parisian Opera cake – a layered sponge topped with chocolate glaze.

2:30pm: Head to the Louvre, and go straight inside with your pre-purchased skip-the-line ticket (extra 15€/person). Walk around with your guide, learning about this beautiful national museum, and see world-famous works of art like Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

3:30pm: Head to the picturesque hill of Montmartre. On the way up, stop where the Impressionists once set their easels and explore the small streets of what the locals call "the village of Montmartre". Buy souvenir paintings to take home, and finish your day with the impressive Sacré Coeur cathedral and its stunning panorama overlooking the entire city.

Alex, our tour guide was awesome. He met us at our hotel and walked us to d'Orsay, Louvre, and Notre Dame. Our day was PERFECT. I highly recommend this tour early in your stay, so you can revisit your favorite spots.

My 3 daughters and I traveled to Paris for one day. We booked a private tour since we had to make the most of our day. The tour was absolutely amazing!!! Our tour guide Astrid was brilliant, kind, funny and oh man could she walk fast!!! We only had 7 hours and we covered so much! From Notre Dame to the Louvre to the oldest part of Paris, lunch in a garden, even the most amazing ice cream I've ever eaten. We walked and took the Metro. It is simply a day my daughters and I will never forget. The planning was simple and Astrid made the day perfect!!!

This was WONDERFUL! Our guide, Florent, customized a tour that allowed us to stop for macarons which is what my 12 year old daughter wanted more than anything and have crepes for lunch at a local spot, not a touristy destination which is what my 14 year old son wanted. Florent engaged my kids in conversation, and kept it interesting for the adults. It's a lot of walking, but because it's at your own pace, you can stop whenever you want. Florent even negotiated the price of a painting we wanted to buy along the river Seine! Such a great day.

It was a great day! Florant was a marvelous tour guide. He accommodated four old folks' needs. We simply ran out of energy and had to end the walk early. After seeing Notre Dame we had little interest in seeing other cathedrals.
