Looking to get the most out of your day in Paris while enjoying the company of a handful of other eager travelers? With lengthy entry lines and attractions scattered across the city, this might seem a daunting task.

  • New Tour
  • Meet your guide outside Castel Café
  • Eiffel Tower
  • Louvre museum
  • Notre Dame
  • Sacre-Coeur
  • Ending point in Montmartre

Your tour begins near the Eiffel Tower, where you'll purchase ticket to go up to the 2nd floor with your guide. Next, continue to the Louvre Museum and head straight inside to check out the Mona Lisa with your skip-the-line tickets. By the way, isn’t it nice to enjoy your guide's fascinating insights, made even better by the small group size of your semi-private tour? walk in the footsteps of Picasso and Van Gogh and admire the impressive Sacre-Coeur Basilica.

After spending 90-minutes in the Louvre, you’ll make your way to the Latin Quarter, stopping at Notre Dame along the way. From here, you'll receive tickets to see Paris from a different angle - by boat on a Seine River cruise. The tickets will be valid for you to use at your leisure!

Semi Private Paris in a Day Tour with Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, and Scenic River Cruise Description

Your 8-hour tour includes:

  • Guided walking tour of Montmartre and Latin Quarter neighborhoods

  • Visit Sacre-Cœur and see Notre Dame Cathedral (from the outside)

  • Skip-the-line Louvre ticket and guided tour

  • Free time in Paris for lunch (not included)

  • Cruise on the Seine River for 1-hour

  • Visit Eiffel Tower

  • Travel like a local on the metro, with tickets included

  • A knowledgeable, English-speaking guide

  • A maximum group size of 6 people

Enter the Eiffel Tower

You'll begin your day by meeting your group near the iconic Eiffel Tower. Admire the grandeur of the structure while your guide fills you in on delightful fun facts and stories. Along with your local guide, you'll purchase tickets to access the elevator which will take you up to the second floor. You'll hear stories about the construction of the Eiffel Tower and its meaning to the French people, as well as some fascinating tales about the history of Paris.

Skip-the-Line Louvre Museum Tour

With your skip-the-line ticket to the Louvre Museum, you'll bypass the notoriously long queue and get straight to admiring the museum's famous paintings, sculptures, and relics during a 90-minute tour. Of course, the highlight for many is the Mona Lisa, which has captured the intrigue of art lovers since the 16th century.

Painted by Leonardo Da Vinci and known as La Gioconda in Italian, the Mona Lisa has called the Louvre home for over two centuries. However, her fame surged globally when she was infamously stolen in 1911. Today, she remains safeguarded behind bulletproof glass, monitored by dedicated security personnel, and is insured for a staggering $800 million

While you could contemplate Mona Lisa's smile all day, the Louvre has over 400 rooms, and you'll want to tick off a few more highlights. Just as astonishing are the Venus of Milo and The Winged Victory of Samothrace, two ancient Greek statues that your expert guide will explain in detail. Then, before your 90-minute tour ends, be sure to check out Eugene Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People, deemed the most politically important work at the Louvre.

Notre Dame Visit and Latin Quarter Tour

Although the magnificent Notre Dame is still in the process of restoration from its unfortunate fire, predicted to be completed in 2024, it’s still well worth visiting this iconic site. Then, continue across the Seine River for a delightful stroll through the Latin Quarter–known as the intellectual heart of Paris. Highlights include Shakespeare and Company, which serves both as a café and a bookstore and once welcomed Ernest Hemingway and James Joyce through its doors, and the many intriguing shops lining the streets.

Explore Montmartre Neighborhood

Your journey begins in the Montmartre neighborhood, famed for being the birthplace of Moulin Rouge and today known as Paris' distinguished art hub. After meeting your knowledgeable guide and a handful of other group members, you'll enjoy a leisurely wander through the neighborhood and learn about its highlights and fascinating history. In addition, your guide will point out the best spots to return to if you plan to take advantage of Montmartre's robust nightlife.

Montmartre is certainly more than it’s clubs and restaurants, though. It was also the nucleus of the Golden Age, known in French as the Belle Époque, and once provided the creative sanctuary for Renoir, Van Gogh, Picasso, and Modigliani. You'll even stroll past the café where Van Gogh courageously created one of his most controversial pieces–a portrait of a woman engrossed in a book!

During your guided tour of Montmartre, you'll also visit the Sacre-Coeur Basilica, located at the highest point in Paris, and the Wall of Love, which expresses love in many languages.

Seine River Cruise Tickets

At the end of your tour, which finishes in Montmartre, your guide will provide you with tickets for a Seine River cruise. The tickets will be valid for you to use at your convenience and includes a complimentary glass of Champagne to enjoy!

This cruise allows you to savor the picturesque views of the city and appreciate its stunning landscapes from a new perspective. Keep your eye out for the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Notre Dame, and of course, the Eiffel Tower while cruising along the calm waters.

Your guided tour includes train tickets to travel the longer distances between attractions. Other areas will be explored on foot, particularly Montmartre.

When can I take my Seine River Cruise?

Your tickets will be sent to you via email within 24 hours of your tour departure time. To redeem the boat tickets, please bring them to the Bateaux Parisiens boarding line.
