Best of Paris Tour – Full Day (Private)
First time in Paris and can’t decide how to plan your day? Look nowhere else! We at Meet The Locals have planned a Best of Paris Tour that shows you exactly what needs to be seen not only from a tourist’s perspective, but also from a local Parisian’s!
Your guide is a true Paris buff and will be very happy to show you the best the city has to offer! She/he will be sharing with you his/her favorite pathways and areas in Paris. Of course, focal places like the Eiffel Tower, Les Champs-Elysées, and Notre-Dame area are part of the plan. We will make sure that you don’t miss the highlights nor the Parisian lifestyle experience! Without further ado, let’s get right into your busy and exciting day!
Your starting point is at Trocadero Square, the best location to admire the symbol of Paris: the Eiffel Tower. You will learn everything about this iconic tower and unveil how it escaped its scheduled destruction.
Get the best of Paris in only 8 hours!
Then, you will get right into a daily local activity: public transportation! Meet all types of Parisians on your way to the most beautiful avenue in the world, the Champs-Elysées!
Starting at the iconic Arc de Triomphe ruling at the top of this beautiful wide avenue, stroll down while looking at the beautiful buildings, popular cafés, and fanciest shops, until you reach Place de la Concorde. This former royal square became tragically famous during the Revolution. Can you guess which of the monuments it holds is the oldest?
See that beautiful park behind where you’re standing? That’s where you’re heading! This is the Tuileries Gardens next to the Rivoli Street arcades. As you take some fresh air and meander in this charming park, you are approaching the world’s largest museum. You guessed it! It’s the Louvre! The outstanding pyramid as well as the long façades of this former royal palace will blow you away.
It is now time to explore Paris’s two natural islands on the Seine: Ile de la Cité and Ile Saint Louis. Walk through the charming streets of the Cité island where you will get to spot the legendary Notre-Dame cathedral.
After a stroll in the lovely lle Saint Louis, let’s reach the elegant Place des Vosges, le Marais’s main highlight.
Your tour ends in Montmartre, the highest hill in Paris. From the Sacré-Coeur steps, an extraordinary view opens above Paris. Picturesque cityscapes and painters will also be waiting for you at Place du Tertre.
And if you want to get the best of Paris but with your family, this First time in Paris -Full Day Tour is the perfect activity you're looking for!
Are we visiting inside the monuments or climbing up the Eiffel Tower?
We won’t enter any museums or attractions. Don’t worry, you will see the tower from a distance, which is even better for your pictures! All the comments you need about the tower will be given by your guide anyway.
How will we travel across Paris?
For very distant locations, you will take public transportation (tickets included). But you will mainly walk- that’s the best way to visit and make the most of a city!
Is lunch included in this Best of Paris tour?
The lunch fee is not included in the tour but your guide will be able to recommend some places to you according to your budget.
What if we have more than 4 people?
Just advise us in your request form about the number of people in your party, as well as their category (adult or child), so we’ll be able to tell you about the extra fee per additional person.
