The perfect way to start your adventure in Paris!

Paris is a city of contrasts. In the shadow of the most famous monuments in the world, you can find narrow, Medieval streets, covered shopping galleries, ancient plazas, lovely gardens and tiny cafés packed with locals - but you have to know where to look. This tour introduces you to the Paris you know from the postcards and the secret city that lies all around it.

Our guide to Welcome to Paris - Small Group Tour

Your tour meets near the Louvre in one of Paris's most charming and elegant small plazas, the Place Colette. Don't bother looking for it on other tours, it's a local favourite and most tour itineraries miss it.   

From there, you will head over to the Jardins du Palais Royal, to learn how they went from aroyal hangout to a hotbed of democratic fervor in the revolution, finally transforming into the city’s most popular gardens today.  See the Palais Royal and learn the history of this lovely building before stepping into the iconic courtyard of the Louvre. In front of I.M. Pei's glass pyramid, your guide will tell you the story of this ancient fortress- turned-palace-turned-art-gallery and recommend what to see when you go for a visit.       

Then it's onto the banks of the Seine, where you will walk onto Paris's most romantic bridge and learn why city authorities decided to make it slightly less romantic.  Enjoy stunning views up and down the river to orient yourself with some of the most recognizable landmarks.  It's the perfect spot to learn about Paris's famous escargot (snail) layout and figure out how to get to some of the other places that may visit later in your stay.

Stroll down the Seine on the Ile de la Cité and stop in the lovely square of the Place Dauphine and learn how to play France’s most beloved game: Petanque. Don’t get too competitive, though, there are a few highlights still to come. As you continue down streets that seem to have changed very little in 500 years, you will pass the Conciergerie - once the country's most feared jail - and then turn a few corners to find yourself in front of the great Notre Dame. It turns out that the city has changed quite a bit since the Cathedral was first built, but you will need your guide to explain exactly how. 

The tour finishes with a little surprise on the point considered the exact geographic centre of Paris. Your guide can explain to you the different legends and traditions surrounding it, but it's up to you whether you want to leave a coin, spin in a circle, or kiss a loved one.
