Give your feet a break — enjoy the sights while cruising the city. If you're a wee tired of walking, or just want a different perspective, take a few hours to see Paris from the seat of a comfortable vehicle. Don't get us wrong, we love to see the sights and sites on foot. It's the best way. But, once in a while, it's fun to do something a little bit different.
That's why we like these activities. They take you right to the most iconic spots in Paris without you having to do anything but enjoy the sights and sounds of the city. The activities we recommend reflect our preference — personal attention on small-group tours or private tours.
See a lot of the city quickly in a morning or afternoon tour that includes pick-up at your hotel.
In the air-conditioned minivan you visit the most importans monuments and sites of central Paris — the Louvre, Opera Garnier, Place de la Concorde, Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower and many others.
Then it's up to the highest point in Paris — Montmartre and the basilica of Sacre-Coeur when you can spend time visiting this historic quartier.
That's a lot of info to fit in one title, so let's recap. This recommended activity includes —
• Pickup at your Paris address,
• A full-day tour introducing you to the most famous sites of the City of Monuments,
• It's a small-group tour in a comfortable minivan
• Skip-the-line tickets to have lunch on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, and
• A Seine River cruise to let you see the city from a whole new perspective.
At the end of it all, your driver/guide returns you to the door of your Paris hotel. Now that's service.
This all-inclusive, action-packed full-day tour starts right at your hotel, where your driver/guide meets you in the morning.
You kick things off with a guided tour of the most famous art museum in the world — the Louvre — where you have skip-the-line access. (Tickets are included, of course.)
Since the Louvre is right at the river, wouldn't it be nice to follow-up with a lunch cruise along the Seine? Well, that's exactly what you do. (Lunch and drinks are included.) Afterwards, spend the rest of the day relaxing in a luxurious minivan while your driver shows you the most important sights of the City of Monuments.
Paris is wonderful by day, but even better by night.
See it all on this nighttime activity that takes you on a guided tour of the best of Paris — all the monuments and the iconic neighbourhoods. As with all the tours we like best, you are picked up and returned to your Paris address.
If you want a little extra attention, and also want to see a lot in a short time, then think about this private city highlights tour.
You can choose to let your driver/guide show you the best of Paris or, since it's a private tour, you can request to be taken to landmarks or neighborhoods that particularly interest you.
As a private tour, you can bring along up to seven of your closest friends!
We weren't sure where else to include this, so here it is!
This is called Paris Super Saver, and for a good reason. In one tour package you get three of the most popular activities in Paris, at a discounted price.
There's a 4-hour city bike tour, starting in either morning or afternoon at your choice. Then there's a Paris by night bike tour that lets you view the monuments at their best — at night when they are all lit up. Finally, you end the evening with a relaxing night cruise down the Seine. all in all, it's a great day.
