Tour Description

See the imposing 13th century gothic structure of Notre Dame Cathedral. Learn of her incredible construction, the mastery of her medieval architects and builders that enabled her to survive the recent devastating fire, and watch history unfold before us as she readies herself to stand tall for another eight centuries.

You’ll also see the oldest bridge in Paris, the revolutionary prison of Marie-Antoinette, explore the flower market and one of the prettiest squares in the city, as well as the riverbanks with their iconic booksellers, much beloved of local Parisians and a favorite picnic spot.

Discover the lovely Ile St Louis, a tiny island a world away from the bustle of the city (as well as being home to one of the best ice-cream makers in Paris!) Filled with magnificent townhouses and elegant courtyards, it was once home to royal courtiers and now is some of the most expensive real estate in the city.

An expert guide will uncover the secrets of these delightful islands for you. Don’t miss a journey into the heart of Paris.
