If you decide to use private car or taxi please consider that traffic can be very heavy in Paris city center and our itinerary might be affected by this.
This is a walking tour: go for very comfortable shoes and remember to bring with you a bottle of water&hat in summer or rain-gear in case of bad weather.
Since the itinerary is quite long we can use public transportation (subway) or taxi/uber to save time or energy.
On request I can arrange a private car service.
Estimated Local Cash Needed

I am not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car or minivan and driver

This tour with Sara was a full day of learning about the history, architecture, and culture of Paris. We strolled together through many neighborhoods, visiting monuments and churches, as Sara explained the background and cultural significance of the places. Sara brought us from the medieval times to the present, and we truly felt it was an educational as well as fun experience. We highly recommend Sara for this tour!
