Private Day Tours from Paris – Go Deeper into France

The easiest and most convenient way to visit the D-Day beaches of Normandy, or the chateaux of the Loire Valley, or the Champagne region is to have our Paris Concierge arrange a VIP private tour for you and your guests. (2 to 8 people).

These classic excursions into the heart of France are long days — eight or ten hours or more. But that's pretty darn easy to take when someone else is doing all the arranging…and all the driving. Your private driver/guide meets you at your Paris address and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy. You may have seen our recommendations for some of these private day tours elsewhere on our site, but here they are all collected for convenient browsing.

The Magnificent Chateaux of the Loire Valley

Magnificent Chateaux of the Loire Valley

The Loire Valley is renowned for a thousand magical castles, its renaissance architecture, and its wide range of great, but perhaps little-known wines.

On this first private day tour you experience French history at its best. Visit the last home of Leonardo da Vinci and two or three other chateaux known for both their beauty and the history of the people associated with them, such as Diane de Poitiers, Catherine de Medici and even author George Sand. Have lunch, relax in your chauffeured car, be impressed by the beautiful gardens as well.

Wine Romantic in the Loire Valley

This unusual private day trip combines the most glorious of the chateaux and gardens with tastings of some of the best wines the valley produces, plus lunch at a private domain — in the vineyards! Our Paris Concierge has it all ready for you.

Classic Normandy D-Day Beaches Tour

Normandy D-Day Beach Tour

If you're interested in the historic events that shaped our time, we recommend that, before you leave home, you reserve a private guided tour to take you to the landing beaches of World War II, along the beautiful Normandy coast on the Cotentin peninsula where the allied forces of the US, the UK and Canada landed on D-Day, 6 June 1944.

You'll see much more as well, including the artificial harbours, the cliffs, the monuments and the cemeteries.

The Culture of Normandy + the D-Day Beaches

On this unique private tour you experience the culture of Normandy, including the historic D-Day beaches. Start with a visit to Bayeux and the famous Bayeux tapestry depicting the conquest of England by William the Conquerer. Then you're taken on an extensive visit to the istoric D Day beaches at Omaha and Arromanches, and the American Cemetery of Saint Lauren. To finish day, stop in at the picturesque fishing village of Honfleur, with perhaps a cider and calvados tasting at a local wine cellar.

Mont Saint-Michel + Medieval Chateau

Mont Saint-Michel

Perched on a rocky isle in the middle of a vast stretch of sandbanks is Mont-Saint-Michel, a gothic fortified Benedictine abbey begun in the 11th century.

Mont-Saint-Michel is an enchanted place and certainly worth a long day trip. (In the comfort of a luxury sedan, of course!) In addition to the monastery you'll wander the ancient, narrow streets of the village, visit the cloisters and other secret rooms, and have lunch at a typical Breton restaurant.

Candlelight Tour of Vaux-le-Vicomte – NEW!

Stroll Among 2000 Candles, Sipping Champagne

Candlelight Tour of Vaux le Vicomte

We've talked before about visiting this lovely chateau (the inspiration for Versailles) on a private day trip, but how about a private night trip?

How about a private night candlelit visit…with a walking tour of the lovely castle and its gardens, a romantic 3-course dinner at a nearby restaurant, and then spending the rest of the evening strolling the pathways of the gardens, listening to classical music, while the grounds are fairy-lighted by over 2,000 candles?

If that appeals to you, you'd better go the inquiry form and ask our Paris Concierge about it. But, don't wait until the last minute! (Saturdays only.)

Discovery Champagne Region Tour from Paris

Discovery Champagne Region Tour from Paris

Our Paris Concierge has created a lot of great activities, but if there's one thing he specializes in it's private day tours to the Champagne region from Paris.

The service is superb. You're picked up at your Paris hotel in a luxury sedan by your expert driver/guide who settles you in comfortably and then whisks you off the Champagne country, an hour from Paris.

All of our Paris Concierge's Champagne tours are tailored to your interests and your needs. So click over to the inquiry form and tell him what you're interested in.
