  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Pickup from a centrally located meeting point
Meet your guide in central Paris just after 9am and board your luxury, air-conditioned coach to travel to the oldest and most intriguing parts of France’s capital city. As you explore some of Paris’ best-known historical landmarks, your guide will explain their significance.
See octagonal Place Vendome and marvel at Palais Garnier, the world-famous opera house used as the setting for The Phantom of the Opera. Witness the magnificent architecture of the Louvre, the world’s most-visited museum, and the massive Hotel de Ville (City Hall).

The photo ops continue as you head to Place de la Bastille (Bastille Square), where the French Revolution began. View the old mansions in the Marais District and sense the youthful energy of the Latin Quarter, home to the famous Sorbonne, which houses several academic institutions.

Your guided coach tour also goes to the legendary Luxembourg Gardens (Jardin du Luxembourg), the second-largest public park in Paris, and St-Germain-des-Prés, a neighborhood favored by celebrated writers and philosophers including Ernest Hemingway, Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre.

In warmer months (April - Oct), board a boat for a short cruise on the Seine River to Ile de la Cité, an island in the heart of Paris that is the site of the famous Notre Dame Cathedral. During the winter, travel to Notre Dame by mini-coach for a more comfortable experience. Enter this iconic Paris landmark (except on Sundays and during Mass) and learn about its rich and colorful history from your guide. For instance, hear how the centuries-old Gothic cathedral was damaged during the French Revolution and later restored to its former glory.

After your visit to the cathedral, make your way back across the Seine and end your nearly 4-hour tour of historical landmarks with a coach ride back to central Paris.

Our guide was very interesting. She even had to deal with a change in plans at Notre Dame Cathedral. When we arrived, they had temporarily had closed the area and so she quickly made some calls and off we went. We were able to get inside later in the tour and she gave a really in depth description of the cathedral, which was great I have been 3 times before and still heard something new!.

I can and #39;t even begin to express what a great time we had! I guess the highlight was the Eiffel Tower tour. But all tours were exquisite. Thank you.
