Let me show you your dreamt Paris!

If you don't have much time in Paris or simply you want to discover the city going straight to the point, this tour is perfect for you. I will pick you up at the address of your choice (your hotel, a railway station, a restaurant) together with a private driver with a comfortable 7 seat van. I will comment on the places we will pass by and you will hear me perfectly well all the time thanks to the headsets system I will furnish. Moreover, we will stop and hop off the van to visit some places in depth such as the interiors of Notre-Dame Cathedral the hilly and artistic Montmartre district. It will also be a great opportunity for you to take pictures of the Parisian highlights. Last, but not least, we will go up to the observatory deck of Montparnasse tower to see one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the city in a skip - the - line mode.

If you want to add something (for example Pere Lachaise cemetery because you have to see Morrison' grave), be my guest! I'm there for you:)


The itinerary will be adapted to the pick-up and drop-off points but we will pass through:
-The Eiffel Tower and the Trocadero Square (what about a photo session in the most incredible point facing the Eiffel Tower?)
-The Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysees Avenue (we will go under the Arc de Triomphe to admire it and experience the crazy traffic around it)
-Concorde Square strongly linked to the French Revolution
-Boulevard des Capucines where Cinema was born
-Coco Chanel's Paris with Place Vendome,
-Opera Garnier - yes, the opera house of the Phantom of Opera!
-Galerie Lafayette (a short visit inside, not for shopping this time, unless you want to)
-The Louvre Museum
-Historical Centre of Paris with Notre-Dame Cathedral (visit inside)
-The Latin Quarter,
-The Saint-Germain des Pres intellectual district
-The hilly Montmartre (a short walking tour and a visit of Sacré-Coeur Basilica Inside)
and many more, all shown through the lenses of an experienced guide and a passionate Paris fan.
