Make the most of your stay in Paris with a private driver and private guide

Let me pick you up at your hotel for a spectacular panoramic tour of the city of lights! A great occasion to discover Parisian culture and habits too, as I will explain how we live and here in Paris. You will have plenty of time to ask me all the questions you want!

As we drive I will of course point the most famous monuments and will tell you about each of them, covering different eras: the French Revolution, the Second World War. And of course we'll make some scenic stops on the way for pictures at the most scenic spots!

Along the way, we will not fail to enjoy beautiful and picturesque views over the river Seine and the many bridges. . .
