Know More about this tour

Your day starts at the base of Montmartre, a Parisian neighborhood perched on a hill, where youll meet your guide and small group of no more than 15 people. Paris is a city with a lot of history and even more attractions, so in order to see the best of it in one day, it helps to do so with an expert guide who takes care of logistics and tells you the story of the city as you go, including its characters, facts, myths, and lore, creating a memorable experience.

First up, take the funicular to Sacr-Coeur Basilica. After admiring stunning views of the city, your guide leads you through the winding streets of Montmartre, stopping off at the neighborhood vineyard, the artist hangout Place du Tertre, and a reconstructed windmill, much like those made famous by the cabaret club (and movie) Moulin Rouge.

Next, catch the Metro Paris best mode of transport for a short trip to Ile de la Cit, Paris oldest district. As you explore the narrow streets of the island and step inside world-famous Notre Dame Cathedral, youll learn how Paris grew from a Roman outpost into the crown jewel of Europe.

From Ile de la Cit, its a short walk to the Louvre, where you have a 1-hour lunch break (own expense; recommendations will be provided by your guide) before diving into the largest art museum in the world to see some of its most spellbinding works of art. The highlight is, of course, Leonardo da Vincis Mona Lisa. Your guide helps you understand why the painting is so significant and how, after all these years, it has managed to maintain its reputation as one of the worlds greatest works of art.

After another short subway ride, find yourself staring up at the Eiffel Tower from the best vantage point at Place du Trocadro, learning the incredible story of how the tower was built. When you get to the base, youll skip the line and climb directly to the second level for more great views of Paris.

Your guide leaves you at the tower, but as a parting a gift, gives you a ticket for a 1-hour Seine River cruise that you can use immediately (recommended as it will almost be sunset) or save for the next day. Cruising from west to east and back again, the boat tour passes such monuments as the Muse d'Orsay, the Louvre, and Notre Dame, allowing you to enjoy a different perspective on sites you saw earlier, plus many beautiful bridges including Pont Neuf (audio included if you wish).

And thats it! In just one day, youll have seen Paris by foot and water, skipping its longest lines to see its most popular attractions, plus a few local favorites along the way.

  • Violet was a fabulous guide! While this was a highlights tour, she shared stories and background on each of the sights and pieces of artwork that gave the experience much more depth. I would highly recommend this tour.

  • We only had a day in Paris and wanted to see the highlights. Violate is a wonderful tour guide. She was friendly, patient and very informative. The tour more than met our expectations. It was a long day but she gave us time to rest during the day. Several of us were in our late sixties and were able to keep up.

  • Loved being able to see Montmartre, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower and the Louvre! Our guide, Violet was great and very knowledgeable! The pace was excellent and she did a fantastic job keeping us all together! My husband and I learned so much and can't wait to visit Paris again!

  • This is a great one day tour if you have a limited amount of time in Paris as I did. The tour covered a lot of ground as I got exposed to some of the big sites. The guide was outstanding who needs encyclopedia when you have Adam and the long queues were dealt with very efficiently. Each place we visited Montmartre, Louvre, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower were spectacular as was the river cruise. A heartfelt thank you for a fantastic experience!

  • Really enjoyed. We got to see most places well. Guide Josephine was very knowledgeable.

  • Very tiring day but excellent tour guide Josephine did a wonderful job. Highly recommend this tour.

  • Exceptional tour! Our tour guide, Liliya was amazing! She knew the history of each landmark we visited and made each place come alive. It is a walking tour, but with breaks for coffee and snack so it is not difficult. There is no better way to see Paris if you only have a few days. You learn how to navigate the city and can go back to other places and explore more thoroughly on your own. The river boat tour is an added bonus. We took it at sunset and it was one of the most magical experiences of Paris!

  • Nice tour of the city. Highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Paris.

  • We did this tour on 22 July. Our guide, Tina, had an amazing knowledge of every related subject. There is a lot packed into one day, so much more than we could have seen on our own. Lots and lots of walking all up about 10 kms, but the pace was relatively comfortable, even for this unfit 56 year old :. It is a costly tour, but we had a truly amazing day in Paris and we felt it was worth every cent!

  • This is a brilliant way to see the sights of Paris if you only have one day. our guide was beyond amazing - personable, friendly and highly brilliant in shepherding our little flock of 14 around the .streets and subway system. Be aware that there is a lot of walking involved in this tour so it will not suit everyone but there are places to rest along the way and the excellence of tour highlights like the Montmartre and the ascent of the Eiffel Tower make it all worthwhile. This one is what all walking tours should be I give it my highest rating.
