Understanding which tour is best for you
Our main tours
Those are our main tours. You can see all the other ones in our booking page, or you can click the book now button if you find one that caters to you needs.
The 1h Tour
This is a good tour if you want to see the main highlights.
See Paris main highlights such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc of Triumph, Champs Elysées, Concorde, the Opera, Place Vendôme, the Grand & Petit Palais, the bridge Pont Alexandre III, the Invalides, and Notre Dame, if we have time.
This is an example of the locations within reach in a one hour tour. This depends obviously on departure location and the time of the day, as well as traffic conditions. In general traffic would be better at nighttime, after 7. Or if during the day, between 10 to 12 or between 1 to 4pm.
A loop, meaning a start and finish at your hotel, usually covers less than finishing somewhere else than we started as we don’t have to go back, so can explore a little more of the city on the way.
Stops are at your convenience, and within the time available. We usually stop by the Eiffel Tower, the Arc of Triumph, and Notre Dame, for pictures. Most of the time you can just stand up in the car for the picture but can also get out whenever you want.
The 1h30 Tour
See Paris main highlights such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc of Triumph, Champs Elysées, Concorde, the Opera, Place Vendôme, the Grand & Petit Palais, the bridge Pont Alexandre III, the Invalides, and Notre Dame.
As well as Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the mythic neighborhood where the intellectuals and writers such as Hemingway or Oscar Wilde used to live in.
The 2h Tour
We have the time to see Montmatre extensively, and the Latin quarter, famous for its universities like the Sorbonne, the oldest in Paris, the Pantheon, the Luxembourg garden, as well as its famous vibrant squares such as place Contrescarpe, rue Mouffetard, and the Emily in Paris square, the restaurant and bakery where she goes.… Where Hemingway lived…
Also depending on time: for example, if you are doing a loop (start and finish at the same place), we would normally have time to cover all the famous monuments, as well as Montmatre, the Sacré Coeur, the Moulin Rouge, and Saint Germain des Prés. The latin quarter would be a little too long to keep it within the 2h timeline. Except for the night time where traffic conditions would be better, allowing us to see a little more.
If we didn’t do a loop, meaning we start and stop at a different place, we would have time to see the latin quarter.
So all main monuments + Sacré Coeur in Montmatre + Saint Germain and depending on time, the latin quarter.
The 3h Tour
3h allows us to explore a little more of the island of Notre Dame, like Place Dauphine, the Conciergerie where Marie-Antoinette was, as well as some tiny streets only a car this small could take. We would also go to Ile Saint Louis (the other island), to show you the best ice cream in Paris, as well as the highest real estate sale ever done, the restaurant that inspired Ratatouille movie, amont other things…
As well as Rue Montorgueil, where you have the oldest bakery in Paris.
We would explore Montmatre in more depth, stopping at the wall of love, giving you time to explore the artist square and maybe get a portrait, enter the magnificent church of the Sacré Coeur. We would see the lively Pigalle area, go through the vibrant Saint Michel little streets, or visit the oldest church in Paris of Saint Germain des Prés.
We would also show you more of the Latin Quarter, such as the roman coliseum dating back 2,000 years, where they had gladiator fights. We would also show you Saint Sulpice church, the second tallest in Paris.
The 4h Tour
On top of everything else, we would explore Le Marais, its mythical squares such as Place des Vosges, place Sainte Catherine, the garden of the Hotel de Sully, rue des Rosiers, where you have the best fallafel place in Paris, (and you would get the VIP treatment to get a fallafel while skipping the 10 minutes line, if you wish), the Museum of the archives, the mythical Marché des Enfants Rouges, a typical charming parisian market famous in the Marais.
The garden of the Palais Royal, gorgeous park a little hidden in plain sight.
Some galleries such as Gallerie Vivienne, or Passage Choiseul,
We also would have time to stroll pass the Pompidou modern art museum, the hotel du Sens, see the oldest houses in Paris, among other things…
In other words, if you want to see as much as possible and take your time, the 4h is your best option.
We don’t usually don't do more than 4h because we believe it can get a little too long after that for some people. We cover so much that it may be overwhelming, yes, we don't hold back!
4h is great to see all the famous monuments,
If you want to take your time and actually stop at places for as much time as you want, in the galleries, the gardens, the boutique shops, the churches, or restaurants. We show you all of that and you decide how long you want to stay. The keyword here is: we don’t rush. We couldn’t cover all of that in just 2h, and for most people that’s more than enough. But if you really want to see as much and explore more than a local would, while taking your time, then this is the tour for you.
The 5h Tour
It includes everything we can see in the 4h tour, in an even more thorough way. We would have more time to explore more galleries, passages, squares, alleyways and courtyards. Plus, if we have time, The Montparnasse district, Père Lachaise cemetery, Place Bastille, rue Crémieux, République, the Canal Saint Martin, Buttes Chaumont, la Butte-Aux-Cailles, Parc de Belleville. The 5h tour is great if you want to see as much as possible, or see a lot of things but really take your time while stopping at a lot of places. Because believe us, time flies.
