Tour description

Olympics Advisory: The Paris Olympics & Paralympics are expected to cause significant travel delays throughout the city from July 14–September 9, 2024. To ensure you arrive at your tour meeting points on time, we strongly advise you to plan your journey with extra time to account for potential traffic and transportation delays.

Discover Paris' top attractions, from Montmartre to the Eiffel Tower, in one perfectly planned day of sightseeing.

Make the most of your time in Paris with a guided tour of the Louvre, Montmartre, and Ile de la Cité to see the restoration of Notre-Dame before ending your day in Trocadero Square to see the Eiffel Tower. On this tour you'll get to know the City of Lights and check attractions off your sightseeing bucket list during an invigorating tour through the French capital.

Launch your adventure with a funicular ride to see the Sacré Cœur Basilica in Montmartre. Feel your heart soar as you ascend through the 18th arrondissement and ogle at the white-stone façade of the Sacré Cœur without having to trudge up the neighborhood's more than 300 stone steps. Follow your guide for a walking tour of the neighborhood, visiting its very own vineyard and iconic windmills. Sit down at a charming French cafe to enjoy a coffee and croissant (not included in price).

Enjoy a stress-free visit to the Louvre Museum to see the Mona Lisa on an expertly guided tour.

Hop on the metro with your guide and head to the Louvre Museum. With pre-reserved tickets, you'll enjoy a 90-minute guided tour and see great works like the Mona Lisa and more accompanied by stories from your expert guide.

Before moving on to the next stop, delight in a 1-hour break and enjoy lunch at your own expense. Duck inside a French bistro or poke into a patisserie and dine on a crusty baguette, fresh fromage, and an energizing espresso.

The tour continues with a walking tour of Île de la Cité, an island in the middle of the Seine River and the birthplace of Paris. Severely damaged by a recent fire, Notre-Dame de Paris still stands proudly in the heart of the city. Your guide will bring you as close as the ongoing restoration will permit to give you the best views possible. Your guide will also point out several monuments including the building where Marie Antoinette was imprisoned, Paris' prettiest square Place Dauphine, and the gorgeous Pont Neuf bridge.

Relax on Seine boat cruise as you take in views of Paris from the water.

As afternoon stretches toward evening, hop on the Metro for one last trip to Trocadero Square for a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower. Your guide will show you where to purchase tickets to climb to the top if you're interested. Before saying farewell to your guide, they will also give you a ticket to board a Seine river cruise as the streetlights cast their dreamy glow on the water, or save your river excursion for the following morning.

I’ve taken several tours with Walks now, in Athens and Paris, and they have guides that are both knowledgeable and strong communicators. They deliver on a dependably solid touring experience!

This tour, with Adam, was fantastic and full of information! Adam is a natural born guide, with a wealth of history and information. The size of our group, 13, was perfect. The Vox wireless earbuds worked very well and helped keep the group together. We are, Team Adam!
