Your custom-made tour of Paris begins with pick-up from your central Paris hotel by your local guide, Philippe. Having discussed your itinerary in advance, he’ll have everything ready for your custom-made Paris tour, from pre-paid skip-the-line tickets for the attractions you want to see (own expense), to subway tickets (included) to ensure you maximize your time.

Depending on your chosen itinerary, you might then set out to explore the sights of central Paris, including iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Élysées. Other options include a guided tour of the Louvre or Musée d'Orsay, a Seine River cruise, or a peek at the legendary Moulin Rouge (own expense; to be booked in advance). Along the way, get a taste of life as a Parisian as you stop to sample delicious croissants, macarons, and Berthillon Ice creams; shop for Hermès scarves at the Flea Market; or tuck into lunch at local restaurant (own expense).

After a full day exploring the city, your guide will escort you back to your hotel, and leave you with plenty of tips and recommendations for how to enjoy the rest of your stay in Paris.

Enjoyable Day is Paris
, Apr 2020
Philippe has a great personality and was very entertaining and knowledgeable. We strolled through different sections of the city, enjoyed a river cruise, toured the Louvre, enjoyed view of the Eiffel tower from near and afar and spent time at the Arc de Triomphe. It was a wonderful day exploring the city with my father and two adult children. Highly recommended.
Wonderful tour

Philippe was a wealth of information, funny, and he made sure we were not interrupted by various peddlers and such. He also took us to a lovely restaurant free of tourists (aside from us). This was the perfect way to explore the city for a day.

We had a wonderful day with Philippe! He was hands down one of the best guides I have ever had while traveling. He knows Paris and it's rich history very well. We had a delightful day with him seeing so many of the sites. When I go back, I will definitely use him as a guide again!

This was far and away the highlight of our trip. Phillipe is a gem - relatable, hilarious, and Parisian, in the best sense of the word. Be prepared to WALK! We covered about 18km through the day - but saw all of Paris and learned a lot about the city and its history. The fun facts we gained we still repeat - my favorite is probably the story about a very old bar and restaurant where the important men took their mistresses to give them jewelry - and the ladies' powder room mirror is scratched still from where the mistresses would test the stones to see if they were real diamonds! As a side bonus, we stopped for lunch and were able to do some wine and cheese tasting as well - it was perfect - as was the view of the Eiffel Tower from a vantage point we never would have known about, and the timing, which got us there right in time for the twinkling lights to come up. This was absolutely worth it - I would recommend this trip to anyone!

We scheduled the full day tour and Phillipe customized it based on what we had already seen. Phillipe is pleasant, informative and entertaining, providing many interesting anecdotes and tales about Paris and Parisians, past and present. He conducted the tour at a comfortable pace for people that are 70ish and in reasonable shape, mostly a walking tour but using the bus and subway systems to cover long distancesrest stops and lunch breaks when needed. His selection for lunch, Chez Flottes was outstanding! We had some of the best French Onion Soup we have ever consumed and a Cafe Gourmand tray dessert sampler which was also quite good. For those not wanting to do a full day tour he also schedules half day tours. We had a wonderful time and when we return to Paris we will have Phillipe continue our edification and education about all things Paris and Parisians!!!!!
