Know More about this tour

Dive into the historic heart of Paris and explore the medieval highlights of the Île de la Cité. First up is Notre Dame Cathedral; now over 850 years old, the cathedral still reigns as a titan of Gothic architecture. Scour its exteriors of delicately sculpted stone and the messages of its intricate façade. Learn about the cathedral’s famously hunchbacked bell ringer, the devilish myth of its main doorways, and how the French Revolution almost destroyed the cathedral. Inside Notre Dame discover striking stained glass windows, dizzying vaulted ceilings, and a plethora of unexpected details from long ago.

Second on your exploration is the the Conciergerie; a former royal palace which was converted into a prison, famously used as the city's prison during the bloody days of the French Revolution. Relive the terrible conditions of the condemned by viewing prison cells from centuries ago, including that of the building’s most famous prisoner - Marie Antoinette.

Finally, skip the long line in front of the Sainte-Chapelle to enjoy the most stunning medieval stained glass windows in the world. This private chapel of the king, completed in 1248, once housed Christ’s crown of thorns and was the most prestigious and powerful place in all the land.

  • The guide was great and the information was wonderful.

  • The guide was great and the information was wonderful

  • This was such an amazing tour with a highly knowledgeable tour guide. She was just so happy to teach us about the history and intrigue of the places we visited. And the attention to the details was amazing. I would have never guessed this would be such an enriching tour. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

  • Really good, four hours was just a little long on a very cold day, our guide was very knowledgeable and we learned and saw a lot.

  • Anna was the perfect guide. She tailored the tour to suit us and interesting, well informed and fun to spend time with. Thank you anna. We had a great morning and have a much better appreciation of Notre Dame, Sainte Chapelle and the Conciergerie.We were surprised by how much of the information we reatined and we're inspired us to learn more.

  • Our tour guide, Johanna, was amazing. We learned so much about history and building.

  • Vanessa was outstanding

  • This private tour was exactly what we wanted and expected! Our tour guide was very attentive to our needs and interests. She thoroughly answered every one of our questions, some of which were not related to the exact sights that we were seeing, giving us plenty of background information about Paris and France in general. She was so very knowledgeable about the history, art and architecture of these 3 sights that we felt the tour was worth every penny! Starting the tour promptly and fairly early and having a private tour helped us avoid many of the crowds that we observed were lining up to enter Notre Dame just as we were finishing and going to the next sight.

  • Our tour with Vanessa was wonderful. She was very kind, and knowledgeable, beyond things we already knew about Paris. We were traveling with our two teenage daughters, and she kept things intersting and was definitly not a canned tour. We loved it.
