The 3 hr Paris Day Tour is a very popular option as it is the perfect way to discover historical Paris with an expert Parisian. The tour covers all the main sights with the exception of those in the Latin Quarter and the Montmatre Districts. Stops are made throughout by the chauffeur for you to go out of the vehicle to sightsee with your own Paris guide.
The 7 hr Magical Paris Tour is the complete day tour of Paris. It includes additional areas in the north of the city including Montmatre (The Sacre Couer Cathedral and the Moulin Rouge) as well the Latin Quarter in the south (famous for being a favourite with the literary and arts crowd, including the Jardin de Luxembourg and the little cafes around St Germain). In addition, there is also the possibility to go up the Eiffel Tower or enter the Arc de Triomphe during the course of the tour. There is also a one hour break for lunch and/or shopping: a complete day experience.
Lunch is not included in the price of the tours. Tours with a duration of 5 hours or more include a lunch break in the centre of town. Over the years we have found that some clients prefer to visit a restaurant or typical Parisian bistro for a good meal (your guide will be happy to suggest places to eat) while others prefer to have lunch "on the go" and spend the time doing some shopping. In this way the lunch break is spent at your leisure, providing time for you to recharge your batteries before continuing with the tour.
