There is only one way truly to savor Paris: to walk its neighborhoods. Walk and appreciate the history, the architecture, the smells and the tastes. But you have to know where to go. Our select tour guides will help you discover authentic Paris. And if you want to rest your feet a bit, we will arrange a car or minibus with a guide.
Paris is also your springboard to historical and cultural experiences in northern France. We arrange day or half-day excursions with guides to anywhere you choose. You will be picked up at your hotel by a private car and driver or by a small luxury tour van with a handful of other interested English speakers.

A visit to Paris is not complete without a visit to Versailles, the grandest palace and gardens in Europe, built by Louis XIV. This 17th century palace contains the famous Hall of Mirrors and king’s apartment. Your guide will take you through the palace and vast gardens, including the Grand Trianon and Marie-Antoinette’s Petit Trianon.
