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 just a bit like royalty as our private driver shows us 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.
Your private driver/guide meets you and your party (maximum 4) at your Paris address just as the sun dips below the horizon. Sit back and relax for two hours of the best illuminations of the City of Light. It will seem like the city is lit just for your viewing pleasure as you take in Place de la Opera, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Hotel de Ville, Place de la Concorde, and the other iconic buildings and monuments.
And don't forget the Champs-Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Eiffel Tower. At the end of the evening you are returned to your hotel. An additional benefit of this activity is the generous cancellation policy, in case your plans change.
Is it possible to see Paris in one day? Well, this action-packed full-day tour sure gives it a shot. Bright and early you and your group (of up to four) pile into a luxurious Eurovan. Easy to do since your driver/guide is waiting for you at your Paris address. In the morning you concentrate on the iconic sights of central Paris — the Arc de Triomphe, the Latin Quarter, Palais Garnier, Montmartre, etc. You also take time to explore Notre Dame Cathedral.
When it's time for lunch, where should you eat? How about on the Eiffel Tower, where a table has been reserved for you at restaurant 58 Tour Eiffel. Dine while overlooking Paris, what could be better?
You're not done yet, because in the afternoon you're on a bateau for a cruise along the river Seine.
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!
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.
The Paris City Pass gets you free entrance to museums and lets you skip the long ticket lines ! Plus, you get to ride the Metro & buses for free. Includes Seine River Cruise & hop-on bus pass.

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 driver returns you to your hotel, satisfied from having seen so much wonder in one day.
It feels good to say that. Let's say it again: "Champagne in a Rolls". We've saved the indulgent best for last — as the sun goes down, the City of Lights starts to glow. Your chauffeur picks you up at your Paris address and takes you around to see the best of the city in its illuminated glory — Eiffel Tower, Place de la Concorde, Champs Elysées, the Madeleine, Opera Garner…
"More champagne, darling?"
