5/5 (3 reviews)
  • Description

Excursion available in a small group or on private basis

Full day small group tour of Paris introducing you to the city's most famous sights. Your minibus tour will include free time to explore Montmartre and Notre Dame Cathedral. This will be followed by lunch on the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower before your day continues with an incredible boat trip along the Seine.

Leave your accommodation at 8:15 a.m. to explore Paris's attractions by minibus in a small group. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of eight to allow you to enjoy a personalized excursion with your driver-guide. 

In the morning, visit the city center by minibus as your driver-guide tells you about the various monuments and neighborhoods. See the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysées, Concorde, Madeleine, the Opera House, the Latin Quarter, the Orsay Museum and the Alexandre III Bridge. Two free-time stops are scheduled as part of your tour: around half an hour at Montmartre (the artistic Place du Tertre Square and the Sacré Coeur Basilica) and 20 minutes at Notre Dame Cathedral.

At lunchtime, your priority access ticket will allow you to skip the line and go straight up to the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower for lunch in an exceptional setting, 187 feet off the ground with panoramic views over Paris. In the "58 Tour Eiffel" restaurant, which feels just like a typical Parisian brasserie, you can sample fresh, seasonal produce with our three-course menu.

We loved speeding through the line at the Eiffel Tower. The 3 course meal in the restaurant was very good and worth the price. We would definitely recommend.
If you have limited time, this is a perfect way of seeing the main sights. Our guide was terrific and very knowledgeable. The lunch at the Eiffel Tower is a highlight, however keep in mind the elevators are hard to get so ensure you leave enough time to climb and get back down the stairs to make the cruise in time. Otherwise I highly recommend this tour.
The driver was helpful and nice...the timing was sharp
