Slides of my Car Tour in Paris

Paris City Tour : Highlights (with Pictures)

How it started

The car tour of Paris was created by the Hotels of Paris to offer a warm welcome to Paris to their guest.

In 2005, a concierge of a Palace in Paris hired me for a 2-hours long car tour. The mission is show the clients all the highlights of Paris.

The idea of an orientation tour in a comfy car grew in maturity when we hire a tour guide to come with us.

Since then, we did not stop refining the itinerary and kept updating the circuit with our partners in Paris.

Today, we offer the complete car tour for all visitors.

The car tour duration can be 2 or 4 hours.

My ride is safe and pleasant.

You can enjoy the tour in a Mercedes Class V with extra leg room, for 6 people, best for a party of friends or a family.

The Mercedes Class V has 6 pivotal seats and big windows. An extra 7th seat at the front is booked for the Guide.

You can opt for the Mercedes Class S for only 2 people but more classy and for more elegant interior.

I drive very slowly during the city tour so you can enjoy more time looking at the beautiful monuments, the statues, the bridges, and even the people in the street and the houses of the city...

The classic city tour is better to be planned at the beginning of your stay: understand how Paris works, learn about its history and see what you might like in the city in order to come back and visit it more in-depth.

If you are interested in a special place or a landmark, you can ask me to stop and go inside.  A museum or a church? Go ahead with the Tour Guide, I will wait for you.

Feel free to take pictures of Paris, or ask me to take pictures of you.

It is also alright to take picture of me or the tour guide. We don't mind, we are at your service!

You can ask me to stop and to go to a pharmacy, a drugstore, or to do shopping, to eat, to have lunch... while I wait for you outside.
