Highlights of Paris: Private 6-Hour Vintage 2CV Tour

1. Highlights of Paris: Private 6-Hour Vintage 2CV Tour

Your driver will pick you up at your hotel and begin the day with a visit to the famous Cathédrale Notre Dame. Afterwards you’ll head to the Ile de la Cité, located in the middle of the Seine. Discover the famous Saint Michel district, the Hotel de Ville, and enjoy views of the most beautiful bridges in Paris, such as the Pont Neuf and the Pont des Arts. Your driver will then take you to the Palais du Luxembourg, passing by iconic monuments such as the Pantheon. Take a relaxing walk in the Luxembourg gardens, a haven of greenery and peace in the heart of Paris. Admire the famous 16th-century Palais du Luxembourg, its flower gardens, and sculptures. Next you’ll see the Louvre and its famous pyramid, the Royal Palace, the Church of St. Eustache, the Bourse of Paris, the National Assembly, and the Invalides. Enjoy a traditional French picnic on the Champs de Mars park, in front of the Eiffel Tower. Bask in the lovely views of the city as you experience a traditional baguette, with camembert, charcuterie, and of course a bottle of red wine! Your drive continues along the Seine to the famous Place de la Concorde, and then up the Champs-Elysées, considered by many to be the most beautiful avenue in the world. Your driver will stop at the top of the avenue, so you can climb the Arc de Triomphe, and take in the panoramic views from the top. See the Concorde, Madeleine, Opera Garnier, and Place Vendôme before heading to Montmartre, one of the most charming and romantic districts of Paris. Before finishing the tour, you’ll be dropped off at the top of the Butte Montmartre. Visit the Basilique du Sacré Coeur or perhaps take a walk to the Place du Tertre, famous for its many artists before returning to your hotel or another location of your choice in Paris.

Private tour of Paris by Night with Champagne

2. Private tour of Paris by Night with Champagne

Experience Paris at night by taking a tour through the City of Lights in a vintage Citroen 2CV. An icon of the French motor industry, the idiosyncratic 2CV was built from 1948 until 1990, and sets hearts a-flutter with its instantly recognizable design. Paris is known as the City of Lights because it was the first city in Europe to begin lighting its streets with gas lamps in 1828. Your personal driver will collect you from your hotel, or any other central Paris location, and drive down the Champs Elysees, to the beautiful Arc de Triomphe. Gaze at the marvelous Eiffel Tower, even more impressive at night when it is completely lit-up in a rainbow of illuminations. Pass the Louvre, continue to Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Opera Garnier. Next, head for the bohemian district of Montmartre, known for its artistic and laid-back atmosphere. Here you will see the magnificent Basilica of the Sacre Coeur, featured in the hit movie Amelie. The tour includes a complimentary bottle of Champagne to make your visit of Paris even more memorable, and more quintessentially French!

Paris: Monuments Tour in a Motorcycle Sidecar

3. Paris: Monuments Tour in a Motorcycle Sidecar

Starting from the iconic Pont Bir-Hakeim, you will cross over to the right bank and stop between the wings of the Palais de Chaillot at the Place du Trocadero. Although a magnificent view right across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower, this stop is an intro to Paris and its love affair with Universal Exhibitions, and the Tower will be saved for the end. Then you'll be zooming down Baron Haussmann's boulevards before regaling in some stories from the Napoleonic dynasty at the majestic Arc de Triomphe and the Opéra Garnier. The furthest point of the tour is the Louvre for some photos before beginning the return via the Champs Elysées, Pont Alexandre III and finally stopping at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. You'll be finishing the full loop back at the Pont Bir Hakeim, and walk away with new memories, and enough recommendations from your guide to go create more fun experiences!

What people are saying about Arc de Triomphe

My daughter and I are in Paris for 24 hours. We are trying to absorb as much as we can. This tour was amazing! A white knuckler and a half with a bottle of champagne to boot. Our driver had us on the edge of our seats at times. But it was our best experience by far in the 10 hours we've been in town. Two thumbs up.

The best view of all of Paris

Thank you so much. Lovely car great driver and to finish off with the Eiffel Tower lit up like it’s covered in diamonds and the Place du Vendôme is where I will stay next . Absolutely the best way to see Paris at night. Maybe I should also stay at Montmarte as the restaurants look fabulous.

A unique view of Paris at night.

We really enjoyed our excellent drive and tour of Paris neighborhoods at night. Our driver Eric was friendly, informative and a wonderful tour guide. The icing on the cake was enjoying a bottle of champagne during our tour. Highly recommended!

Our driver, Marc, was so friendly and accommodating and made sure we got to see everything we wanted to see. This tour is a great way to see Paris from a different vantage point.
