Private Tours of Paris – Cruise the City in Style

Sometimes we just like to let our feet rest and let someone else do the work. That's when we turn to these private tours of Paris that make us feel a it like royalty as our private driver shows you the city. "Champagne, anyone?"

Private guided tours like these are especially useful if you're a first-time visitor to the City of Monuments, or it you only have a short time in Paris and you're in a hurry. The shorter tours (2 or 3 hours) are good if you have a morning or afternoon to spend, but the full-day tours get you really deep into the city. And then, of course, there's a night tour in a classic Rolls Royce…with champagne. It's up to you.

Secret Paris Tour in a Citroën 2CV

Private 2CV Tour

The Citroën 2CV is the most iconic car ever produced in France and is still recognized for its classic minimalist design and solid engineering.

Imagine seeing Paris from your own private Citroën 2CV, with a knowledgeable chauffeur taking you through the ins and outs of secret Paris. Your driver meets you at your hotel and then shows you the Paris that most tourists will never see. We can't imagine having more fun in a car!

Private City Tour + Louvre

Private Driver Tours

It you're unfamiliar with Paris, or if you're short on time, tours in a private car are a great way to see a lot in a few hours, or in this case, a full day. This private sightseeing tour also includes entrance to the Louvre

You and your party are met at your Paris address by an experienced English-speaking driver/guide. You spend the morning seeing all the touchstone sights or Paris, like the Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Palais Garnier, Les Invalides, Place de la Concorde, Place Vendome, and Montmartre. After taking a break for lunch, you're whisked over the Louvre for a chance to view the incredible artwork found there.

As evening approaches and the tour is over, your drier returns you to your hotel, satisfied from having seen so much wonder in one day.

Private City Tour + Eiffel Tower

Private Driver Tours

We know this for certain — skipping the lines at the Eiffel Tower is worth it. In fact, it's the only reasonable way to get to the top. That's why we always opt for a skip-the-line tour.

This tour gets you to the top after bypassing the lineup. First, though, you spend the morning on a city-wide tour of the best of Paris sights, just like the tour we described above. You know — Notre-Dame Cathedral, Place de la Concorde, Montmartre, and all the rest. But on this tour, later in the day you're dropped off at the Eiffel Tower with your skip-the-line tickets. After you've looked at the city from above for as long as you want, your private driver returns you to your hotel.

Maybe our Paris Concierge has out-done himself with activity. Imagine if you will — Start the day with a private city tour, taking in the best of the city.
