What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Notre Dame Cathedral, Tower and Ile de la Cite Half-Day Walking Tour

Skip the Line: Notre Dame Cathedral, Towers and Ile de la Cité Walking Tour

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.

Very knowledgable guide - Randa I think. Excellent historical perspective - nicely woven into the individual visited location stories. Good pace, never felt rushed or slow. If it hadn't been in the rain and cold would have been awesome. Not her fault obviously.

We chose to do a private tour, and we're so glad that we did. Shannon was amazing! She was very friendly and knowledgeable, and we learned so much in our few hours with her. Notre Dame is incredible, and having skip the line access is key. I cannot imagine spending several hours waiting in line for us, the extra expense of skip the line was well worth it. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if you're willing to pay a bit extra for the private tour!
