Planning Your Visit
What should you know before you arrive in Paris?
In a city this crowded with people and this steeped in tradition, you should decide which attractions you want to see in advance. Know which museums are a must-visit for your group. Make dinner reservations. Decide which neighborhoods you want to explore. Figure out how to beat the crowds at the Musee d'Orsay.
How big is Paris?
If you haven't been to Paris before, you may be surprised by how sprawling the city is compared to other, more walkable tourist destinations like Rome or Barcelona. (You can certainly walk -- but the Métro will help you zip around quicker!) Try to organize your sightseeing by neighborhood, so that you're not racing across the city several times a day.
How many days should you spend in Paris?
It depends! It really will help to prioritize what you want to see before you go, and map out how long it will take you to see everything on your list. You could easily fill five days with tours and major attractions -- but remember to dedicate time to strolling down the Seine, shopping your way through the Marais, and drinking a Kir Royal at a sidewalk cafe.

- As is European tradition, the French go on holiday for most of August -- meaning that it actually might be the best time to go! The city will be a little less crowded, and you'll be able to experience Paris at a slower pace.

What people are saying about Paris
Great experience - the tour guide was really lovely (I can't remember her name, she was petite and just the sweetest ever!!) We recommend going at night - when it lights up its so gorgeous. The only negative, there was absolutely no social distancing. In fact, it was encouraged to get closer. This was a bit stressful for us because we were trying our best to stay distanced (we were doing Covid tests whilst away to be able to come home) So we just would've liked the opportunity for distancing.
Olivia was a fun and energetic guide. She clearly loves what she does. She was a great driver, too! This is a long day but it’s interesting to experience the differences between the wild gardens of Monet and the structured gardens at Versailles. Enjoy!
Εξαιρετικη!!!! Φοβερή οργάνωση και τα εισιτήρια έρχονται αμέσως στο email. Εξυπηρέτηση και έλεγχος εισιτηρίων στο κινητό σου.
Ay 9: line for thé crêpes and line for the cruise, quite some people but the boat was big enough.
Delícioso passeio de barco passando pelos principais pontos turísticos.
