3-hour Paris Private City Tour

Enjoy a comprehensive overview of Paris' fascinating history and must-see sites with your private tour guide

ABOUT THE 3-hour Paris Private City Tour

This 3-hour private tour will show you Paris' top attractions and walk you through the story of one of Europe’s biggest cities. Your local private tour guide will take you to must-see sights such as the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, Ile-de-la-Cité, and the Palace of Justice.


Explore Paris in-depth with your expert local guide

Throughout its history, the French Republic has always been a hotbed of fashion, art and science; and at the centre of it all lies the City of Lights. This cultural heavyweight - home to well over 2 million Parisians - is packed with so many world-class restaurants, museums and galleries that it can be hard to know where to begin.

This 3-hour private tour covers the city’s major sights and attractions at a comfortable pace, beginning at the Left Bank’s famously intellectual Latin Quarter. Moving from the Notre Dame de Paris to the Ile-de-la-Cité, architecture buffs will be treated to examples of Gothic, Baroque and Classical construction. Crossing the stunning Tuileries Garden, before admiring the striking Palace of Justice and Sainte Chappelle, visitors will unpack the city’s history in the company of an expert local guide. Ending by the Carrousel Arch (a short walk away from the UNESCO-listed banks of the Seine), this private tour covers the best the capital has to offer!

Explore Paris at your own pace

This 3-hour private tour covers the main must-see sights of Paris at a leisurely pace. You also have the option of stopping for a break partway through. More time with your expert local guide means that you’ll get great inside scoops about museums, theatres, clubs or about the best local food and wines that will make the rest of your trip to Paris a memorable one.
