What's in our tour?
Paris and Luxury go hand in hand. Find out why – and enjoy it, too!
On this tour, your private guide takes you from Napoleon’s Column and Coco Chanel’s home, to Concorde Plaza and Champs Elysées, and then to the Paris Caviar House for a sampling of Caviar and Champagne.
This is a private tour – moving at your pace, according to your particular wishes and interests.
Your private guide then takes you to Paris’ caviar house – modern-style, for caviar and champagne. You have booked a private tasting. An English-speaking taster is standing by your side to help you savor and recognize the three different caviars that are served to you. Now that sturgeon poaching is 100% illegal, who makes good farm caviar? And why? Along with your caviar come chilled champagne and canapés.

Your guide waits for you outside hotel Ritz. You find out how César Ritz, known as “king of hoteliers and hoteliers of kings”, invented luxury hotels. And how we live to enjoy his legacy to this day.
Your Paris Luxury tour then focuses on the Frenchman who invented the Restaurant as we know it, right where we now stand. What did Auguste Escoffier do – in the kitchen and in the dining room – that revolutionized dining forever? And how was his work also a liberating breakthrough for women?
The tour takes you to Napoleon and Louis the Sun-King. We pay tribute to these two great sponsors of luxury. How are jewelry and power so inter-connected?
Surrounding us are the world’s top luxury brands. Travel trunks cost €50,00, watches €100,000, and jewelry reaches the skies. Chanel, Dior, Van Cleef, Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Goyard, why are so many luxury brands French?
Lady Diana was last seen alive right here, and Chanel lived here for 30+ years. Why? And how is Chanel’s work a direct reflection of this neighborhood?
More photo opportunities await as you reach place Concorde. Champs Elysées, Arc de Triomphe, Invalids, and the Eiffel Tower, lie before you in the distance. All at one glance.
Next we walk up rue royale – a masterpiece of proportions. With the Golden Number, architecture too has its standards for perfection.
