Description

Make the most of your time in Paris with this full-day tour of the city's most famous sights, both on foot and by boat. First, explore the best of the Louvre Museum as your guide whisks you past the long entrance lines and straight to the masterpieces you want to see. Then, discover the ancient island of Ile de la Cité and Notre Dame Cathedral. End your day with a cruise down the Seine River, taking in the city's endless array of attractions from the water.

Experiencing the best of Paris in one day may seem like an overwhelming prospect, but with this specially designed itinerary you can enjoy the city’s simply unmissable sights in just eight hours.

Join your guide and group of 25 or fewer tour participants by the Arc du Carrousel, opposite Paris' famous Louvre Museum. Then sail past the crowds with skip-the-line entry and head directly indoors for a 1.5-hour highlights tour.

Follow your guide straight to instantly recognizable masterpieces such as the Winged Victory of Samothrace, Venus de Milo, and the unmissable Mona Lisa, and listen to as insightful and entertaining commentary brings each iconic work to life.

When your visit comes to an end, you’ll have some free time before your afternoon tour to explore the nearby Latin Quarter — known for its lively bistros and ambiance and a great place to grab a bite to eat (own expense) — or stroll along the storied Left Bank, the city’s bohemian heart and once frequented to such luminaries as Picasso and Hemingway.

When the time comes, meet your group and guide on Ile de la Cité for your afternoon tour. Ile de la Cité is the historic heart of the city and home to its most famous cathedral, Notre Dame. Marvel at this Gothic masterpiece, and decipher the visual morality tale engraved into its facade (with help from your guide) before exploring its stunning interior.

Your guide will entertain you with the intriguing history of this Parisian icon, from its construction through the French Revolution, and show you the treasure this church has been guarding for years.

Having explored Paris on land, it’s now time to discover from the water. With your pre-booked ticket, bypass the main lines and board your evening cruise for a float down the Seine River. Sail under the city’s pretty bridges and admire the sights, including the Eiffel Tower, as you go.

Your full-day tour concludes after your cruise docks.
