Overview

Pack all of Paris’s main attractions into a single, unforgettable day on our complete Paris in a day trip. In the company of a local expert guide and a small-group (maximum of 15 people), you’ll see the city’s main monuments and learn a lot of its hidden secrets while traveling by foot and metro. From the windmills of Montmartre, to Notre Dame, the halls of the Louvre, and the second floor of the Eiffel tower; you will cram more postcard worthy attractions into one day (9/10.25-hours) than you would see in a week of normal sightseeing.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Eiffel Tower, 5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007 Paris France

After another short subway ride you’ll find yourself staring up at the Eiffel Tower from the best vantage point at Trocadéro Plaza, learning the incredible story of how it was built.
At the Tower your guide will depart but as a parting a gift they’ll leave you with a skip-the-line ticket for the second floor and a ticket for a one-hour Seine river cruise that you can use immediately (we’d recommend it since it’s almost sunset) or save for the next day.


Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris, 6 Parvis Notre-Dame Place Jean-Paul II, 75004 Paris France

Next you’ll catch the subway - Paris’ best mode of transport - for a short trip to the Île de la Cité, Paris’s oldest district. The City of Light started on this very island, growing from a Roman outpost into the most populous and prosperous city in Europe. Above it rises Notre Dame. Severely damaged by a recent fire, she still stands proudly in the heart of the city; testament to the genius of its design and the endurance of France. Your guide will bring you as close as the ongoing restoration will permit to give you the best views possible.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Louvre Museum, 99 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris France

A short walk down the Seine brings you to the Louvre, where you’ll enjoy a 1-hour lunch break (with recommendations from 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, da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

Your day starts at the base of Montmartre hill from where you’ll where you’ll meet your guide and your small group of no more than 15 people, then take the funicular to Sacré-Cœur Basilica. After taking in stunning views of the city, your guide will lead you through the winding streets of Montmartre, stopping off at the neighborhood vineyard, artist hangout Place du Tertre, and a reconstructed windmill, much like those made famous by the cabaret club (and movie) Moulin Rouge.

We had a short one day stay in Paris. The tour covered many districts by taking the subway, a bus and a boat. We covered the Basilica, Notre Dame, Louvre, Montmartre artist district, Effel Tower, Seine boat tour, etc. Each spot was described in detail by a certified guide.She focused on the history of art, religion, and growth of each district. She was very personable.

Adam was insightful, enthusiastic and a font of knowledge. He brought history to life in a way no travel book or history processor could hope to do, sprinkling in humor and keeping us on track for a full day of meaningful sights. Having personal headsets was a godsend as well. Highly recommend!!

What a great day to see Paris. First, the number of the dynamic group was perfect (12) as all could keep up and hear Adam with clarity (I don’t recommend many more to the group). Second, this is a walking tour....so if you can’t walk 9 miles or so, I do not recommend (also not for young ones either). But, to the best part....Adam...he was superb. Humorous, knowledgeable, and offered information beyond what a ‘normal’ tour may offer (and we have been on many). Thanks Adam for a great day learning about Paris...and my feet still hurt, but well worth it!

My brother and I had a very delightful experience all thanks to our amazing tour guide, Felix. He definitely gave us the highlights of each of the locations and always made sure that we felt comfortable and safe throughout the entire day. You get a great taste of each of the locations presented in this tour. We highly recommend this tour for anyone's first time in Paris!
