Combine a great sightseeing tour of Paris with a museums tour in either musée d’Orsay or the Louvre museum.

At first we will come and pick you up at your Paris accommodation in one of our recent and comfortable air conditioned vehicle. Your guide/driver will then introduce the day and go through the itinerary just to make certain that it is adapted to your wishes. As this is a private tour there is a certain flexibility to modify stops throughout the day. Upon our expertise, the itinerary below is what we suggest but orders of the stops can vary depending on your pick up point or wishes.

Begin the day with a pick up at your accommodation. Board your air conditioned vehicle and start your sightseeing tour of Paris that will take you to all the major landmarks this beautiful city has to offer. The morning will be essentially dedicated to driving you to the most famous monuments of Paris including the Place de la Concorde, the Garnier National Opera and following the Seine River. You will also experience a drive along the Champs Elysées avenue and see the famous Arc de Triomphe. Other highlights include the Eiffel Tower where we will organise a short stop for photo opportunities; please note that this is a tour at the base of the tower only.

Then, it will be time for a top for lunch in a most interesting quarter of Paris – the Marais neighborhood. This district of Paris is one of the liveliest and there is a large selection of restaurants. Your guide will certainly suggest one that will correspond to your wishes and budget. After lunch experience the visit of the Louvre Museum.

LOUVRE MUSEUM VISIT

Discover the amazing Louvre Museum on a personalized guided tour. What used to be the residence of the Kings of France has now become internationally renowned for the masterpieces that are present in the museum: Mona Lisa or the Venus de Milo. From a medieval fortress dating back to 1190 and located on the outskirts of Paris at the time, the Louvre Palace will become the residence of French Kings starting with François Ier in 1528. For a time left by the Kings who left for Versailles, the siege of power is returned to the Louvre at the time of the French Revolution and until 1870. After being invaded by a number of administrations including the offices of the Finance minister, the Louvre slowly regains the space lost and just after his election President Francois Mitterrand will announce the creation of the Greater Louvre. The final aspect of this will be the creation of the Pyramid of the Louvre and its inauguration in 1989.
