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

We absolutely loved our tour with Aline! She was very knowledgeable of all things in Paris! She filled us in on French history, buildings, art, food and was just a joy to be around. We truly enjoyed our tour and definitely left with a love for all things French!
We did the Paris walking tour and the Louvre with our 4 kids ages 10-2. Our tour guide was Remy. He did a wonderful job taking us to major landmarks explaining about them while engaging our kids. He took us to a beautiful park to have lunch. He moved at the pace of our kids and was happy to accommodate them and very easy to be around. We then finished at the Louvre which he knew quite a bit about and even brought small gifts for our children 1 he presented to our 2 year old as she was having a meltdown in the Louvre which distracted her enough to allow us to finish our tour. It was an excellent tour. I’d highly recommend it to anyone, especially traveling with kids. It is a long day and all of us were tired at the end of our time together even though it was a slow pace. I wouldn’t plan to do much else for the day.
It was amazing! Martina did a great job. We all learned a lot.
