The perfect choice! Your Licensed Guide and your driver are one and the same! Whilst an ”in-house" Driver-Guide can give general information about the main monuments or places of interest from the outside, our “Licensed Driver-Guide”, who has an official Guide-Interpreter license, will be able to accompany you all the way; sharing his complete knowledge of French History & Culture. He can accompany you inside numerous famous sites, notably: Versailles, Louvre Museum, Sainte Chapel, Abbey of Mont St Michel, Loire Valley Castles, bringing to life each of these places that have helped shape France’s history and culture.
Your Licensed Driver-Guide will pick you up at your hotel, or your apartment. He will escort you to the main historical places on the Seine’s left and right banks, to share with you his knowledge & passion for Paris, driving you in a private deluxe air-conditioned vehicle. It is your Tour, totally custom-made to fit your desires: YOUR way, and nobody else's.
Discuss your wishes for your Tour with your Driver-Guide, or simply let him drive you around, enjoying Paris's magic in all simplicity. You will pass by The Opéra Garnier, the most famous Opera House in the world, and then the Place Vendôme (our most luxurious square) epitomized by its Jewelers, Fashion House & Hotels, and the Place de la Bastille; dominated by the Tour of July erected on the original site of the Bastille Fortress; stormed and destroyed during the French Revolution. Afterwards, you will arrive in the historical and religious heart of Paris: Notre-Dame Cathedral, famous worldwide for its gothic architecture and of course the backdrop for Victor Hugo’s most famous novel.
You will then pass by The Place de la Concorde (the place where Marie-Antoinette lost her head!). Then on to the Madeleine Church, before heading onwards and upwards to the quintessentially-Parisian Quarter of Montmartre, where you can visit the Sacré Coeur, notable for its eastern Byzantine architecture; unique for a church in Paris. Once you’ve experienced all of these places, you will be driven through The Champs Elysées, the world famous Parisian Avenue, considered by many as the "most beautiful in the world". Your Licensed Driver-Guide will naturally have in mind your desire to take pictures and will schedule regular photo stops; however, feel free to ask him when you wish to take pictures, he will gladly stop (depending on traffic) for your souvenirs!
Enchanted, you will then head off to The Trocadéro, where you will enjoy a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower (maybe take a picture of yourself holding it up with your fingertips!) And, last but not least, your driver will take you to The Eiffel Tower herself (The Iron Lady is one of her nicknames). You could then ask your Licensed Driver-Guide to show you some other lesser-known, but nevertheless fascinating places; which, with your driver’s vast knowledge, will help you live a truly unforgettable experience of Paris.
As it is a Full-Day Tour, ask your driver where you would like to have lunch, depending on your tastes and budget, he will find a place which will suit you perfectly.
After lunch you’ll be heading off for the Louvre Museum, being the largest museum in the world, visiting it on your own can turn out to be quite a headache! This private guided visit is the astute choice! Your Licensed Driver-Guide will live up to all your expectations and more. He will know exactly how to help you make the most of your visit, you will feel at home despite the sheer enormity of this former Royal Palace: the Mona Lisa, Venus of Milo, Leonardo, Raphael; these and many more treasures just waiting to be discovered. You’ll be introduced to rare behind-the-scene stories that retrace the Louvre’s history, from the medieval fortress built in the 12th century up to the ultra-modern and controversial glass pyramid; dreamt up by the Architect Ieoh Ming Mei.
Once this comprehensive Tour of Paris has drawn to an end, your Licensed Driver-Guide will then escort you safely to your hotel, or apartment, your mind enriched with memories!
