See many noteworthy sights of Paris in one day, including skip-the-line access to the Eiffel Tower and Orsay Museum. With a guide, tour Montmartre and the Latin Quarter.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, 35 Rue du Chevalier-De-La-Barre, 75018 Paris France

Launch your adventure with a funicular ride to see the Sacré Cœur Basilica in Montmartre. Feel your heart soar as you ascend through the 18th arrondissement and ogle at the white-stone façade of the Sacré Cœur without having to trudge up more than 300 stone steps. Afterwards, follow your guide for a walking tour of the neighborhood, visiting its very own vineyard and iconic windmills.

Duration: 2 hours 15 minutes

Stop At: Musee d'Orsay, 1 Rue De La Legion d'Honneur, 75007 Paris France

Hop on the metro with your guide and head to the Musée d'Orsay. Skip-the-line at a world-class art museum and the favorite of many Parisiens. Enjoy a 90 minute guided tour and see great works by Monet, Van Gogh, and Matisse accompanied by stories from your expert guide.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Paris, Paris, Ile-de-France

Pause for lunch at your own expense. Duck inside a French bistro or poke into a patisserie and dine on a crusty baguette, fresh fromage, and an energizing espresso.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Ile de la Cite, Ile de la Cite, Paris, Ile-de-France

From Montmartre, head to the Île de la Cité for a tour of Notre-Dame de Paris. Severely damaged by a recent fire, she still stands proudly in the heart of the city; a 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. You’ll cross the river into the historic Latin Quarter with its gothic churches and winding, cobbled, streets ending at Place Saint-Michel, a gathering place for locals and visitors alike. You'll also see La Conciergerie, the prison where Marie Antoinette was kept before she was beheaded; Place Dauphine, possibly the prettiest square in Paris; and the gorgeous Pont Neuf bridge.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

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

Jump on the metro with your guide once more toward the last stop of the day. As afternoon stretches toward evening, enjoy priority skip-the-line access to the Eiffel Tower.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Seine River, 75001 Paris France

Choose to participate in a one hour River Seine cruise as the streetlights cast their dreamy glow on the water, or save your river excursion for the following morning.

Wow, wow, wow is this tour incredible! I was a little nervous when I booked this tour because of how much it claimed to cover, but it truly was the best way to see as much of Paris as possible in just one day. However, my family and I walked over 11 miles by the end of the day so I would definitely not recommend this tour to anyone who has difficulty walking (including stairs and hills). We had a fantastic experience getting to see so much of the city. We especially appreciated that there was a cafe break a few hours in for a much needed cappuccino and croissant and then when we stopped for lunch there were lots of options to chose from. Our guide was super knowledgable and we learned so much about the architecture, history, and culture of Paris. They do provide ear pieces so it was very easy to hear our guide throughout the crowds around the more popular attractions. The guide leaves you with tickets for the river cruise at the end of the tour that do not expire for a few months so we actually decided to spend some more time in the Louve (the last stop) on our own and then went on the cruise the next day. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is a visiting Paris for the first time or for a short time because it truly allows you to see and learn so much.

Adam’s the best guide!!! Very informative and entertaining. He more than made up for the very cold, rainy and windy weather.

Recommended to tourists who have very limited time in the city of lights but would like to literally experience Paris in a day. Our guide, Daniel is very knowledgeable, and a lot of fun, too! The weather wasn’t as great on the day of our tour but he handled it like a pro and aced in giving us a very informative yet entertaining tour around the famous sights in the city.

Violette made our Paris in a Day Tour so AMAZING. She was the highlight of all the tours we took. Her professionalism, the way she connected with everyone providing us with an experience that we will cherish forever. We will be back and we will love to have her as our Tour Guide in the future. On this tour be ready to walk - but don’t worry you will have time to enjoy Cappuccino’s and croissant 🥐. We had a lovely lunch. Will recommend this trip.
