Full description
The monumental Notre-Dame Cathedral is one of the most remarkable Gothic cathedrals in France and Europe and is one of the capital’s major monuments.

Lea was an amazing tour guide! She was friendly, welcoming, and knowledgable. We learned so much from her about the nearby monuments and Notre Dame. She also accommodated for our schedule and needs. She transformed our experience of these churches and monuments in this neighborhood of Paris. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting!

Excellent, engaging and thorough

Or tour guide was exceptionally pleasant and armed with a true history of Notre Dame through the centuries. She brought many pictures and maps regarding the area so we could walk through the history with her. She was patient with questions and glad to impart her knowledge. Although we couldn't tour Notre Dame due to the fire, she took us around the exterior to explain its history, then on a tour through "Little Notre Dame", Saint Severin church. I would recommend a personal tour to anyone.
