Explore Paris' Best Neighborhoods

Home of the Moulin Rouge, Montmartre is the home of cabaret and burlesque. Though you will be walking around in the morning, you are welcome to return later at night per your guide's recommendation. In addition to the nightlife of the neighborhood, Montmartre was also the epicenter of the Belle Époque.

Home to Renoir, Van Gogh, Picasso, Modigliani and more, the neighborhood full of cafes and bistros produced countless famous pieces of art between the 1870s and 1920s. You will pass the café where Van Gogh painted one his most scandalous works. (He dared to paint a woman reading!)

After visiting the Basilica of the Sacre-Coeur, follow your guide to the Latin Quarter. Montmartre is the center of art, but the Latin Quarter is the center of literature. You will see the café and bookstore where Hemingway and Joyce spent their ex-pat lives in Paris. Then take photos of the magnificent Basilica of Notre Dame from the outside. Though the church has not yet reopened since its devastating fire, you will be able to see its exterior.

Louvre Museum Highlights

Skip past the famously long lines at the Louvre and see the museum's most influential works on a 90-minute tour of the Louvre. These works include the two of the most important Greek statues still standing: the Venus of Milo and The Winged Victory of Samothrace. These two famous statues are full of mystery and history that your guide will explain. 

You will also see Eugene Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People. A symbol of French independence, strength and culture, it is the most politically important work at the Louvre. The painting is the most famous artistic depiction of the French July Revolution and is often compared to the American, Washington Crossing the Delaware found in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. 

Mona Lisa Up Close

Your guide will make sure you see the most famous portrait in the world. Leonardo Da Vinci's masterpiece (called La Gioconda in Italian), portrays the wife of a Tuscan aristocrat named Francesco del Giacondo. Though she has been in the Louvre for over 200 years, the portrait became famous when it was stolen in 1911 in a global scandal. Now she is protected with bulletproof glass and personal body guards.

Paris by Boat

A Seine river cruise is most likely on your list of things to do in Paris. Paris boat tours are an outstanding way to take in the ambiance of the city and get a taste of the luxury that the City of Light is known for. Cruise by the highlights of the city, including the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Notre Dame, and the Eiffel Tower standing tall along the river bank. Enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne during your boat ride.

Eiffel Tower

Finally, led by your professional guide, you'll head to the pièce de résistance of this Paris in a Day Tour. As you probably know, Eiffel Tower tickets are incredibly popular in Paris and difficult to purchase. Enjoy your skip-the-line access to ride the elevator to the second level of the Eiffel Tower. Once elevated, enjoy the incredible panoramic view of the City of Lights. We know for ourselves that these moments must be savored, so feel free to remain in the tower to explore more on your own after the tour concludes.

Great tour to start your holiday in Paris!

My husband and I booked this tour to help us get around Paris since it was our first time going. Our tour guide, Julia, was great and knowledgeable. Having a tour guide in the Louvre is necessary, in my opinion. Although the company was unable to get tickets to the Eiffle Tower during the day, they were able to get them for later in the night, at 10pm. The tour includes an hour long river cruise. We just had a great time overall!

Good tour with knowledgeable guide
