From the romantic river Seine to the magnificent Eiffel Tower
Perfect for those who have just arrived in Paris, this nice route is designed to help you discover the main icons of the city and, if you stay longer, to know how to get the best out of the rest of your time in the city of lights.
Starting from the romantic river Seine, on one of its most romantic bridges, the "Pont des Arts", I'll explain to you about the origins of this famous city, as we slowly wander along the river, making our way past the incredible Louvre Museum, the beautiful Opera Garnier, the elegant Place Vendome and the fashion street Saint Honore.
After visiting the historical Place de la Concorde, we will be walking along the world famous Avenue Champs Elysees to end up at the historical Arc de Triomphe.
But this is not all! I will take you to the area of Trocadero. . . where you will have a magnificent view from the Eiffel Tower, and you will be able to shoot that classical Parisian photo to take home. ;)

What an amazing day! Pamela is such an incredible guide and a wonderful person, we couldn't have asked for a better guide to spend the day with. Her historical knowledge and easy-going personality made this a great experience for us. From her stories about the Louvre to her stories about her "Pumitas", Pamela effortlessly entertained and enlightened us throughout the day. I highly recommend a tour with her and we will most definitely look her up the next time we are in town. Thanks Pamela, you're the best
