Know More about this tour

In seven hours, you will know most of the history of Paris from its origins to present day. Your tour starts at 9am in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral, the medieval symbol of Paris, built over the course of 200 years and considered an emblem of economical prosperity and religious power. Then you will step in to see its magnificent stained glass windows and learn about its architecture, its treasures, its medieval life and some historical events, all in just one hour.

After your visit of Notre-Dame de Paris, embark for a 90-minute city walking tour, which will unveil the secrets and past of the main monuments and buildings bringing them back to life, including Ile de la Cité, Saint Chapel, oldest bridge 'Pont Neuf', the Lovelocks Bridge 'Pont des Arts'. The old entrance of the Louvre will mark the end of the city tour and the beginning of our visit to the most visited museum in the world. You will admire its most famous masterpieces, such as the Venus de Milo, the Victory of Samothrace, the Mona Lisa, and other Renaissance and French paintings as well as a few other jewels.

For your  lunck break you have three recommended options: you might choose a "creperie and cider" next to the louvre, a self service restaurant on Rivoli street or just a coffee break either at Saint paul bakery inside the louvre or restaurant of your own choice. They have all reasonable prices. Another option is to go straight to Montmartre after the louvre tour, and have lunch on the hill. 

Montmartre will be your last stop. This Bohemian neighborhood that hosted artists, such as Vincent Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, Maurice Utrillo, Manet, Modigliani, and revolutionized art history. 

A unique small-group experience that will end at 4pm at the foot of the Sacred Heart Basilica, a National Vow dedicated to expiate an immoral nineteenth century.

Remember to bring comfortable shoes and light backpacks considering that it is a walking tour.

  • The tour was excellently planned out and our guide was simply amazing. We were keen to learn and she was knowledgeable and talked with enthuisiasm She made the day very enjoyable and we would use her for any of the other tours she was guiding.

  • Our personal guide was Cinthia and she is a wealth of knowledge on art, history, culture, and the city itself. We started at Notre Dame and took time learning about the architecture, the history, and other interesting facts. On our way to the Louvre, we saw several more historic buildings, sites, and hidden away squares. At the Louvre, Cinthia did an extremely thorough job building our awareness of the historical significance to each work of art. We could have easily spent more time there, but our three boys needed a break. We had lunch outside and then decided to alter the trip. Instead of going to Montmartre, we continued on a walking tour to the Arch de Triumph that eventually led us to the other side of the Eiffel Tower. Throughout the entire trip, Cinthia was flexible and respectful of how much the boys could handle. The entire day was 7 miles of walking, which we fully expected. Make sure you have comfortable shoes and dress for the weather! I'd definitely recommend Cinthia for her extensive knowledge and her love of art. Take this tour if you love history, details, and walking.

  • We had a good experience because our guide was Cinthia Ramirez and she tried very hard to please us. One of the good things about to have a personal guide tour it is you can be more flexible in your requests and organize your time differently and if you want to stay a little longer in a place you just tell your guide. Cinthia is very knowledgeable about Paris and she is well prepared and brings a folder with her to explains things to you in a way it is simple. Remember there is a lot of information to process, still you don't need to remember all but have an idea of how things have evolved. Paris is a museum itself, you will only grasp a little bit of it and you need to come back many times. She not only speaks French but English and Spanish too so she can host many different kind of customers or multi cultural families too, so that it is a plus! Also she was an art teacher so she knows a lot of art and can explains things that are hidden for the eyes of the most of us. Ask her about tips to move along in the city, also she was unbelievable helpful with the Metro stuff that it was confusing for us at the beginning but then we used it as our main transport way. I suggest to hire her at the beginning of your trip so you can take advance of her knowledge. And remember, part of to have a good experience is to have a good attitude, just blank your mind of what do you expect or get ride off your prejudices and just enjoy it in the way it is presented to you. I am an experienced traveler and I can't remember if never had a problem, and if it was I focused in the solution. I highlight this because I read people complaining about the long lines, the service, the waiting, the crow, etc. When you travel abroad there are things in each of the places you visit that are characteristics of those places, it is a fact of life, as soon you accept that you cannot change anything outside yourself and that you cannot control your surroundings you will be happier, of course we can use some strategies that are better than others, for example be aware of the short and dark hair ladies who walk around with a folder and want you to sign stuff but they want to go for your wallet gypsy girls so be assertive always, with just a NO and continue walking is enough. We don't travel to be comfortable or do the same things we do at home, if not, stay at home. We travel to be challenged, and when you come back home, you are richer, and grew as a person, so if that doesn't happen maybe you were looking to the wrong screen. Paris it always will be Paris so enjoy the ride!
