Discover Paris, but without the crowds in large tour groups, on this private walking tour of the city. An informative guide takes just you and your group for a stroll, starting at the epicenter of Paris — Île de la Cité —where the ancient city was founded.
Gain insight into Paris' history, architecture and culture as you see the landmarks and bridges along the Seine River. Along the way, your guide will point out some secret spots known only to locals.
First, pass by the Notre Dame Cathedral on route to the Pont Neuf and Pont des Arts, the Musée d'Orsay, the Orangerie Museum (Musée de l'Orangerie), the Tuileries Garden (Jardin des Tuileries), Place de la Concorde, La Madeleine, the Champs-Elysées and, of course, the unforgettable Eiffel Tower.
Refuel with lunch (own expense) and then you’ll be chauffeured by luxury vehicle to the Louvre. Known for its long entrance lines, the Louvre is an absolute must-do while in Paris. With your priority entrance ticket, sail past the line and head straight inside.
During a guided tour, learn about the significance that the Louvre holds for the city, and about its history as a fortress and palace for French emperors, including Napoleon.
Gaze upon world-famous artworks and lesser frequented treasures not easily found by most visitors, including Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People, Géricault's The Raft of the Medusa, Michelangelo's Dying Slave, paintings from France's Romanticism and Classicism periods, Venus de Milo and original fortress walls. And of course, the one-and-only, Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa.
After the museum tour, you’re free to explore the Louvre on your own, or set off on the cobblestone streets of Paris and discover the local gems recommended by your guide.
