Tour description

France has known in its history many revolutions that ended up shaping its capital. During this tour, we'll see how some major landmarks of Paris have been influenced by this history.

This tour will also be the opportunity to see most of the landmarks of Paris. From a short distance you'll see the Obélisque, the Opéra Garnier, the Place Vendôme.

And from further away, you'll be able to spot the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame.

It's a great way when you have little time to comprehend how the city is organized and take beautiful pictures.

Come with us and discover the highlights of Paris!

We'll start the tour near the Assemblée Nationale, our parliament and make our way through the Place de la Concorde, garden of the Tuileries, Place Vendôme and we'll finish at the Opéra Garnier.

This tour is led by passionate local guides who want to share the best of the city with you!

Was a nice combination of interesting sites in Paris and a history lesson. He showed us some great history that’s right in front of you that you would never even notice on your own. He’s a good story teller and gave us some ideas to come back and see again. Overall very good tour!
