Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This guided minivan tour includes free time in hilltop Montmartre and photo stops at the Eiffel Tower.
Your private Paris sightseeing tour starts with hotel pickup by comfortable minivan. While your informative private guide takes care of navigating Paris’ busy streets, you can just relax and look out the window. If you have any requests of attractions you want to see, tell your guide, who will try to work them in and will provide commentary about the city’s history and architecture, as well as information tailored to your interests.

Pass by Place de la Concorde and the Louvre as you head toward the Seine River, which you’ll cross to get to Ile de la Cité, the island home to Notre-Dame Cathedral. Continue to Hôtel de Ville and the lively Latin Quarter. See the Panthéon and the Sorbonne, one of Europe’s top universities, and then cross the river again to pass by the Arc de Triomphe and drive down the Champs-Elysées on your way to the Eiffel Tower, where you have another photo op.

See Les Invalides and the opera house, Palais Garnier, before heading north to Montmartre, Paris’ historically bohemian quarter that sits on a hill and is home to famous nightlife venues like the Moulin Rouge. Get out of the minivan here for free time to walk along the cobblestone streets; check out Moulin de la Galette, admire works by artists who hang around Place du Tertre, and don’t miss the views of the city from Basilique du Sacré Coeur.

Our flight was late and we were not able to reschedule with this company. No offer to reschedule and/or give credit or refund. Very disappointing.

My husband, and two of my children, age 22 and 20, truly enjoyed this experience with Herbert, Our tour guide. He took us into all the different districts of Paris and gave us so many historical facts as well. He was very informative and answered any questions we had. I don’t believe we would be able to cover So much of Paris on our own. Thank you… I definitely recommend!
As good as it gets

I’ve used Viator many times and have a high expectation level. Our tour did not disappoint. Denise our tour driver extraordinaire was so well spoken and flexible with us she made it most pleasurable. I would recommend this tour and driver with the highest level of confidence that it will be the same experience we had.

This is a 3.5 hour tour that hits all of the highlights of Paris. It is a great orientation tour. Our guide, Damien, was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. The traffic was horriffic the day of the tour which slowed us down considerably. Damien could have very easily stopped at 3.5 hours, but he completed the whole course! This was our first time booking with Viator and will do so again. Thank you for a great day!

Since we only had a short time in Paris, this was the perfect overview tour of the city. Our tour guide, Danielle, was excellent. Very knowledgeable, and took us to see some sights not on the official tour. Really went out of her way to make our short time worthwhile.
