Private Tour: 2CV Secret Paris Tour

47 Reviews

  • Location: Paris, France
  • Duration: 90 minutes (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3907FLA
Discover Paris’ off-the-grid enclaves and attractions on a private tour by Deux Chevaux, a vintage convertible 2CV car! Escaping the crowds of the city’s big-name monuments, the tour puts the spotlight on some of Paris’ lesser-known but equally laudable sights. Choose a start time to suit your schedule, and see kooky street art, grand mansions in Le Marais neighborhood and elegant squares like Place Vendôme.

Highlights

  • Choice of several departures throughout the day
  • Get inside tips from a local
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
  • Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
Meet your private guide near Opera Garnier or at your central Paris hotel, and then hop aboard your 2CV car. Sit in the passenger seat as your guide takes care of the driving, allowing you to admire the sights. Throughout your tour, enjoy several photo stops and chat with your guide about Paris’ off-the-beaten-path sites as well as your 2VC car.

Introduced in the mid-1940s, the economical Citroen 2CV cars quickly became a popular sight on French roads. The cars’ design has changed a lot over the past few decades, but the original models are still held in fond regard. Your tour takes place in one of these much-loved originals – a vintage convertible 2CV.

Avoiding the well-trodden sites of the city center, your tour focuses on the city’s hidden gems. Discover the chic delights of Place Vendôme, the elegant square lined with boutiques, jewelers and ritzy hotels. Swing past Kiosque des Noctambules, a contemporary piece of street art by French artist Jean-Michel Othniel, and then stop for photos by Stravinsky Fountain. The water feature is embellished with colorful sculptures that are said to represent running water.

Visit the neighborhood of Le Marais to see Place du Marché Sainte-Catherine, a peaceful square, and learn about the area’s buskers and artists from your guide. Other notable attractions around Le Marais include Hôtel de Sully and Hôtel de Sens, two lavish private mansions.

After 1.5 hours exploring the city, finish your 2CV tour with a drop-off near Opera Garnier or at your central Paris hotel.

Please note: 2CVs are small compared to modern vehicles, so with comfort in mind, bookings are only accepted for three people per car, with one driver assigned per trio. Should your group be larger, no worries! Up to nine people can book this private tour, and each group of three ride in a separate car while traveling together in a convoy.

My husband and I did this and loved it. Kevin was the perfect driver/guide. The car was fun and enabled us to see the back streets and alleyways a tour bus could never have managed. My husband has loved walking the streets of Paris but is no longer able to do it. He was dreading just sitting in the hotel while others in our group explored. This was perfect - he saw as much or more than they did - and had bragging rights about the fantastic ride. We have done several tours of Paris but would definitely recommend this one and do it again ourselves - requesting Kevin, of course. It was refreshing to have a guide who we could have a conversation with and learned so much about the past, present and future of Paris, along with the gossip behind the doors we past.

We loved it. The guide was very knowledgeable, yet good fun. We went down some tiny streets and enjoyed seeing places of interest that we would never have found on our own, or on a regular bus tour.
