Description

Hop into the passenger seat of a vintage Deux Chevaux – the much-loved French 2CV car – and see the sights around Paris’ elegant Champs Elysées boulevard. Simply leave the driving to a private chauffeur and admire all the legendary landmarks that line the route while learning about their history. This 45-minute tour that also includes Place Vendôme, Palais de l'Elysée and the bizarre-looking Quai Branly Museum, too.

Meet your private driver on avenue des Champs-Élysées, and then hop in your 2CV car to begin your sightseeing tour. No need to deal with navigating the busy streets; your guide will take care of the driving, leaving you to sit back and enjoy the ride. Revel in the attention from onlookers as you stop for photos, and ask your guide any questions along the way.

As you ride, learn about the history of this much-loved little vehicle. Created in 1948 to replace farmers’ carts, the sturdy 2CV went on to transform the French motoring industry. Cheap, cheerful and economical to run, the cars went on to become the motor of choice to the French masses. While their look has evolved over the years, few models hold as much appeal as the early versions; luckily for you, on this tour, you’ll ride in a true original – a vintage convertible 2CV.

Gaze out over the elegant Champs Elysées, seeing many of the legendary landmarks for which the city is famed. Admire the Arc de Triomphe, a magnificent arch in Place Charles de Gaulle, and have your camera ready to snap the iconic Eiffel Tower set against the Champ de Mars. Hear fun facts and trivia about monuments like Les Invalides – a 17th-century shelter for wounded soldiers – and learn about the 1900 World’s Fair when Petit Palais and Grand Palais were built.

Exploring Place Vendôme –an impressive square lined by swanky boutiques – and Palais de l'Elysée with its distinctive Classical architecture. Travel along the Left Bank of the Seine and watch out for the Jean Nouvel-designed Quai Branly Museum – admired for its eccentric façade shrouded with exotic plants. All tours finish at the start point, near Place de la Concorde.

Please note: 2CVs are small compared to modern vehicles, so with comfort in mind, bookings are only accepted for three people per car, with one driver assigned per trio. Should your group be larger, no worries – up to nine people can book this private tour, and each group of three ride in a separate car while traveling together in an eye-catching convoy.
