What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Paris City Sightseeing and Seine River Cruise with Lunch at the Eiffel Tower

Enjoy lunch on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower

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.

It was quite the indulgence but we felt we really made good use of our time. We left something in the van and our driver called right away, and made it easy to get it back.

Driving around Paris in a small van, especially around the Arc de Triomphe, was very exciting! Exploring Montmartre by foot was very interesting as many artists were in the squares with their paintings. Lunch at the Eiffel Tower was very good. Since we were on a private tour, we were able to slightly rearrange our tour by leaving out the River Cruise, we did that the evening before, and actually going into the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa and other wonderful works of art. Our guide took us to a lesser used entrance into the Louvre so our wait wasn't quite as long. Our guide was excellent.

We got a chance to experience paris and all that it has to offer. Our guide was very informative and great at making sure we got the most out of our time. Because of his knowledge we feel that in one day we had the experience most would take days to cover. We enjoyed Fred and all of his inside info


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

The tour was fantastic! Our guide Frederic was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and energetic. His enthusiasm for Paris was infectious. We were worried that an 8 hour tour would be too much, but the time just flew by! So glad we did it - what a perfect way to get to know Paris!

Friendly, knowledgable, easy-going guide. Very accommodating during the private tour. Seine River cruise was just OK. Otherwise, overall good experience.
