Sit in the passenger seat as your guide takes care of the driving, allowing you to admire the sights. Throughout your tour, enjoy several photo stops and chat with your guide about Paris off-the-beaten-path sites as well as your 2VC car.

Introduced in the mid-1940s, the economical Citroen 2CV cars quickly became a popular sight on French roads. The cars design has changed a lot over the past few decades, but the original models are still held in fond regard. Your tour takes place in one of these much-loved originals a vintage convertible 2CV.

Avoiding the well-trodden sites of the city center, your tour focuses on the citys hidden gems. Discover the chic delights of Place Vendme, the elegant square lined with boutiques, jewelers and ritzy hotels. Swing past Kiosque des Noctambules, a contemporary piece of street art by French artist Jean-Michel Othniel, and then stop for photos by Stravinsky fountain. The water feature is embellished with colorful sculptures that are said to represent running water.

Visit the neighborhood of Le marais to see Place du March Sainte-Catherine, a peaceful square, and learn about the areas buskers and artists from your guide. Other notable attractions around Le marais include Htel de Sully and Htel de Sens, two lavish private mansions.

After 1.5 hours exploring the city, finish your 2CV tour with a drop-off near Opera garnier or at your central Paris hotel.

    The tour was good, our driver Robert was very nice and spoke good English! The old Citroen cars can go places buses and taxis can not.

    Excellent tour and driver but stay away from Viator! They are terrible with documentation! The tour provider made this work and picked us up at the hotel. Driver, Robert, was awesome!

    Our driver, Robert, was a lot of fun and knew the Parisian neighborhoods well. The 1974 Citroen car is a head-turner; people took pictures, smiled and pointed at it. We felt like celebrities!

    If you have ever seen the short movie "Rendezvous in paris" this was it but in a 2CV. It helped that it was New Years Day and the roads of Paris were empty but WOW what a journey. Definitely saw part of Paris you wouldn't see on any other type of tour (specially as the others are generally on a Double Decker Bus). Some of the passage ways were so narrow and then the blast along the River Bank was definitely a moment to remember. My only small concerns would be view out of the car with the roof closed and being able to hear ( and understand) our tour guide.

    We had an excellent time with our guide Kevin as he drove us around both the beaten and unbeaten tracks of Paris. He was engaging, informative and professional. The 2CV is a great little car that can go virtually anywhere, even along the banks of the Seine. We'll take this trip the next time we're in Paris. The company 4 roues sous 1 parapluie was also excellent with prompt communication and patience as I inexplicably had difficulties figuring out the address of where we were staying. Simply a first rate experience!

    This was amazing and a wonderful way to see Paris and learn lots of new facts. Our guide was very informative and great fun. I could not recommend this trip more .... fantastic way to spend the morning.

    Very disappointed! Our guide was hard to understand, as he had a heavy accent and he did not understand our questions at all. He was enthusiastic and LOVED driving the car, but he took us to the same secret places that we already knew about. At the end he had us fill out an evaluation form and of course, with him watching us fill it ou,t we gave him all excellent. He was a nice guy, but we rarely got out of the car and asking him where we were so we could return later, was impossible. As he did not really know what we were asking. He knew his script but actual communication was not there. Expensive and we left thinking we gained nothing

    We had an amazing time and Our guide, Kevin, was really great and very informative ! We saw a lot of parts of Paris that we had never seen before and what a unique way to view it through the roof of a 2CV. A truly Parisien experience!
