What makes this tour special

Experience the best of Paris in a day on this full-day tour of its most iconic neighbourhoods and monuments, including a fully guided tour of the magnificent Louvre Museum. 

On your private tour, you will: 

Enjoy a full-day privately guided tour of the cultural highlights of Paris – from Montmartre to Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter to the Louvre. 

Beginning at the top of the hill in Montmartre, you will explore this quaint and cobbled neighbourhood made famous by the Impressionist artists and of course the Moulin Rouge. Soak up the Bohemian atmosphere of Place du Tertre, filled with working artists and lined with bars. 

Walk past Renoir’s studio and Van Gogh’s apartment, and see the iconic Bateaux Lavoir where Picasso stayed and the Moulin de la Galette – the star of Renoir’s iconic masterpiece.

Ride the Funicular to the mighty Basilica Sacre Coeur – learn about its controversy and enjoy some gorgeous views across the skyline of Paris.

Head to Le Marais, famous for its Jewish history and the delicious falafels to be found on the iconic Rue des Rosiers. Step into the mesmerizing Place des Voges where Victor Hugo lived. 

Cross the river to explore the fascinating Latin Quarter – home to Sorbonne University, whose students spoke and read Latin in the Middle Ages. Learn about the writers who lived here like Hemingway, and the luminaries buried in the Pantheon. 

After lunch head, onto the Ile de la Cite to see Notre Dame de Paris – still standing after the fire that ravaged it in 2019, and walk around the Palais de Justice and Conciergerie as you hear all about the French Revolution and the fate of King Louis and Queen Marie Antoinette. 

Finally, enjoy wandering over the river towards the Louvre. Enjoy a fully guided tour of the museum with its 300 rooms – including the must-see masterpieces of the Mona Lisa, The Winged Victory of Samothrace, Venus de Milo and the Coronation of Napoleon.
