What to expect

This highlight tour of Central Paris packs a maximum number of world-class attractions into a small amount of time.

Your tour begins outside Notre Dame Cathedral, where you’ll meet your passionate local guide and an intimate group of 15 people or fewer. Inside the Cathedral, you’ll marvel at the famous Rose Window and the gothic architecture as you learn the century-spanning story of the great building.

After you have seen Notre Dame's most impressive parts and learned a few of its secrets, you’ll head out for a city stroll around the Île de la Cité, Paris's most historic neighborhood. Along the way, you’ll see medieval landmarks like the Conciergerie and St. Chappelle as well as more modern attractions on the Left Bank like the bookstore, Shakespeare and Company.

Passing through the narrow, medieval streets of the Latin Quarter, you’ll cross back over the river to enter the Louvre. During high season, the entrance lines can stretch for hours, but regardless of when you visit, you’ll walk right in for a full tour.

The Louvre's collection is enormous but you won't have to worry about art fatigue; Your guide will focus on the most important works and help you understand what makes them so significant by giving you the vibrant stories behind them. There’s a lot to see, but your visit will include paintings by Leonardo da Vinci and his incomparable Mona Lisa, sculptures by Michelangelo and Canova, statues from antiquity like the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace, the major works of the French Romantics like Géricault’s ‘Raft of Medusa’, and even the French Crown Jewels.

The guided part of your tour ends here but we leave you with a little gift; a Seine River cruise ticket that you can use any time during the rest of your stay. Either hop right on a boat, or save it for sundown, which is a lovely time to take in the sights along the river.

This is a great experience for anyone who wants to pack in a lot of must-see sights to an easy half day of touring.
