Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Admire the Sacré-Cœur Basilica and get stunning views of Paris from Montmartre. Visit Place du Tertre and see a reconstructed windmill before taking the subway to the Île de la Cité, where Paris began. The City of Light started on this very island, growing from a Roman outpost into the most populous and prosperous city in Europe. Above it rises, Notre Dame. Severely damaged by a recent fire, she still stands proudly in the heart of the city; testament to the genius of its design and the endurance of France. Your guide will bring you as close as the ongoing restoration will permit to give you the best views possible. You’ll then cross the river into the historic Latin Quarter with its Gothic churches and winding, cobbled, streets ending at Place Saint-Michel, a gathering place for locals and visitors alike. A short walk down the Seine brings you to the Louvre, where you’ll enjoy a 1-hour lunch break (with recommendations from your guide), before diving into the largest art museum in the world, to see some of its most spellbinding works of art (including the famous Mona Lisa). Say goodbye to your guide at the Eiffel Tower and get a ticket for a 1-hour cruise on the River Seine to use at your leisure, as well as a direct access ticket to go to the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower. Get breathtaking views of the "City of Lights" and its iconic monuments.

I saw the best of Paris in one day

I am very satisfied with this tour. We only had limited time in Paris, and I was worried that I would be missing out, but this tour with the great tour guide, Josephine , covered a lot.
