If you spend a short time in Paris, you might prefer a sightseeing tour to have a general view of the town, especially if you visit it for the very first time. Thanks to a coach or a minivan, we can make a loop and see together the most emblematic monuments of the city.
The tour changes at each season, to discover the best parts of the city: the Christmas lights in December, the chilling places in summer... After all, Hemingway was right: Paris is... A Moveable Feast!
Standard duration: 2 hrs to 3 hrs
Price: 220€ (up to 30 people)
Flat price. Transports not included.
We will see together: Notre Dame, Champs-Elysées, Arc of Triumph, Eiffel Tower, Opera house, Invalides, Pantheon, Concorde square, Vendôme square, Louvre museum...

From what age is the tour recommended?
It is always funnier for a child to discover a city by roaming around than in a car. Though the tour by night offers a complete different vision of the city the explored during the day. I recommend this tour from 8 years old.
How long is the tour?
To see the unmissable places of Paris, a 2 hours tour is the minimum on a normal traffic day. When the traffic situation is bad, we generally need 2.5 hours. In 3 hours, we can add more stops and districts.
Does the tour include breaks?
Of course! In 2 hours, only one or two breaks are possible if you want to see everything, but it can be a combined break for pictures and toilets. For more than 2 hours, few breaks are planned on the way.
How can we get a coach or a minivan?
I can book the services of a driver and his/her vehicle for you. The price will depend of the driver and the timing of the tour. Until 6 people, it is better to book a minivan. Beyond, a coach is generally less expensive than 2 vans. There are few big vans on the market but I can't guarantee the availability of them as they are pretty rare.
Is there a day we cannot make this tour?
No, the tour happens rain or shine. On events days (marathon, car races, etc.), some places might be closed and force us to readapt the tour but nothing impossible.
Good to know
There are not many free toilets on the way, it is better to keep small change (50 cts, 80 cts) just in case.
Dress apropriately for the weather.
