Sample itinerary for your best Day in Paris:
9am: after your private guide meets you at your hotel at the time you requested, your private tour starts with a visit to a little-known rooftop terrace for a 360° view of Paris. Your Best Day, Ever, private tour, will also serve as an orientation tour.
10am: Montmartre. Along back alleys, meander your way through the ever so picturesque “village of Montmartre” – for the impressive Sacre Coeur and for the scenic spots that inspired the Impressionists. This is bohemian Paris.
12:30pm: Lunch. Your private guide gives you insider’s tips for a good place for lunch. While you eat, the guide makes a dinner reservation at a popular Parisian bistro within walking range of your hotel. Your guide also rolls out a city map, and helps you plan the rest of your stay in Paris.
1:15pm: Notre Dame. Tour around Notre Dame and the Island – Paris’ central landmark. With your born-and-raised local guide, learn about the real Quasimodo, and explore atmospheric back alleys and river banks that most tourists never see.
On the lesser known Saint-Louis island, pick up ice cream at Berthillon, the legendary ice cream parlor. Pick your spot on the river banks to enjoy a view of the river and the bridges of Paris.
2.30pm: Latin quarter. Stroll around the Latin Quarter – the medieval Paris full of narrow streets, old-stone buildings, and tales of student life. From there, see the oldest bridge of Paris – Pont-neuf – and walk Paris’ most romantic boardwalk, home of Paris’ famed love locks.
4pm: your private guide hands you skip-the-line tickets for the Louvre museum (€20 extra/adult, including the audio-guide), home of the Mona Lisa, the Venus of Milo and countless others. Before you part with your private guide, receive further insider’s tips about how to enjoy the rest of your time in Paris.
