Itinerary Details 

Your Paris adventure begins with a short introduction in a charming French cafe overlooking the Ile de la Cité, one of two quintessentially Parisian islands found on the Seine.

You will then make your way to your first stop, the stunning and iconic exterior of the famous Notre Dame. Here you will learn about the original architecture, as well as the fire and subsequent rebuilding of this impressive Gothic building. Your expert may share the story of the Hunchback and perhaps other colorful characters of the church’s past. You will move on to the nearby Church of Saint-Séverin for some architectural details, such as the notorious spooky gargoyles found around the church. 

Continuing your adventure, you will explore some of Paris’s most charming neighborhoods: the Latin Quarter and Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Here, you’ll learn about the world-renowned Paris fashion scene and French food delicacies. You’ll also hear stories about Saint-Germain-des-Prés and some of its former residents, including famed philosophers, painters, and literary celebrities. 

You will then cross over the Pont des Arts, a pedestrian bridge that has been featured in many films and advertisements, and make your way to the Right Bank. Here, you will visit the famous Cour Carrée, the courtyard at the Louvre, and also the awe-inspiring Palais Royal. At both famous sites, you’ll learn some fascinating historical facts and walk in the footsteps of the Kings and Queens who once lived there. 

After a morning of fun explorations across some of Paris’s main sites, you will stop at a local restaurant for a delicious French meal. This is a great opportunity for anyone in your family to ask your expert questions about what they’ve seen or any burning questions about the awe-inspiring city. Finally, you will make your way into the Louvre Museum, whose artworks are sure to spark the creative imagination of any guest. Your visit will include all of the Louvre’s most famous masterpieces, including the Mona Lisa

After a day of adventure together across the city’s most cherished and interesting sites, your family will emerge with an unforgettable experience that has given you an overview of the best of Paris and sparked your entire family’s creativity and sense of adventure.

What costs will I need to cover on the day?
You will be expected to cover the cost of your lunch and any additional refreshments.
Is there a long line to enter the museum? Can I "skip the line"?
If you have one of our pre-purchased tickets, you will not be required to wait in any ticket line. There is a security checkpoint that all visitors to the museum are required to pass, and there is sometimes a line for this. Because we have advance tickets, we have access to a special ticket-holder security line, which is very short. Museum Pass holders also have access to this special line.

There are 7 in my family, can we take this tour?
Our Louvre tours are capped at 6 due to venue reservation restrictions, this also helps your tour experience in order to best navigate the museum and crowds. Should you have a larger group, we suggest splitting into multiple groups.

We experienced a wonderful day with Laurent. He really engaged my 8 year old and we all learned so much about this magical and historical city. It’s hard to see Paris in a day but I feel that this tour gave us a great overview. We’ll be back!!!
We had a fabulous day with Aline seeing so many sights of Paris. Aline was wonderful with our children and made our day fun & interesting.
Great tour guide, very good with our children and adapting to their age. One of the best guides we have had in the 7 years coming here.
