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. As a symbol of a city and even a country, its history is made of stones and men. On April 15, 2019 the main spire and roof of the building collapsed in a huge fire. By joining this tour you will learn more about the rebuilding of Notre-Dame and the next steps for its reconstruction. You will see the revival of Gothic Architecture and enjoy a walking tour in the Île de la Cité, the mythical place where everything began. Next you will enjoy a guided tour at the Saint-Severin Church in the Latin quarter, a great example of flamboyant Gothic Architecture.

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.

Who would have guessed a tour of a church would be so charming and fun

Nothing makes more of a good memory than the personal touch of a lovely guide. Doina, full of surprises, gave us a tour with an unexpected mix of facts and fun. Prepared with sketches of the church, she led us within the inside and outside, explaining us the figures and happily answered our questions. The binoculars come handy to see the details. The meeting point was precise and she was there before to greet us. I had a lot of fun and felt sooo alive, peaceful because of the spirit of the church and inspired by the presence of Doina.
