Offering unbelievable value, the Paris Half Day Tours are essential to any visitor wishing to truly discover Europe's most popular city destination, regardless of whether this is your first or tenth visit.

Enjoy a guided visit through the Champs de Mars for stunning photo opportunities at the Eiffel Tower, before learning about its origins for the World's Fair of 1889. Hear stories from Napoleon's attempts to expand his empire, while taking in panoramic views across the Champs Elysees from the Arc de Triomphe. Then enjoy a spectacularly scenic drive over the River Seine to discover ancient Paris, for guided walks through Île de la Cité and Notre Dame Cathedral, a wonder of French gothic architecture where the legend of the hunchback was born, before ending with a guided visit through the beautiful Jardin des Tuileries to the Louvre.

Our tours are fully escorted, whether with a professional driver-guide at standard level (one person) or with your own sightseeing team at the VIP levels* (professional tour guide plus, in addition, a chauffeur), so that you never miss a beat.

There are no parking problems or walking long distances to see the sights. The curbside service stops right by the attractions, away from the masses.

At standard level photo stops are made with commentary throughout. At our VIP levels with your own expert guide and extra chauffeur, stops are made at the key landmarks for you to go outside on walking tours led by your guide to sightsee in detail, hearing anecdotes and stories about London's past and present, while your chauffeur driven vehicle waits with no parking worries.

Come and discover over 1000 years of history and experience the grandeur that is Paris in the most comfort and tranquility.
