We were referred to Sam during the strikes in Paris for airport transfer because the original company didn’t have a... vehicle for our party’s luggage. What a lucky accident! Sam was accommodating and made our transfer super easy and comfortable even in the crazy traffic generated by the strike. We were so pleased we hired him for a day trip to the Loire valley with equally good results. At every point, he made our experience a priority while being flexible with our pace. Hire with confidence!read more

Sam was fantastic! Our family of 5 enjoyed his roomy and clean car and the waters and candy were very appreciated. ... Sam is an excellent driver and took care to be extra careful due to one member of our family not feeling very well. He drove us on 2 separate occasions and was always on time. We especially appreciated when he walked us into the airport to show us where to go for our flight. I would highly recommend using Sam’s services! He was great!read more

Paris City Tour : Highlights (with Pictures)

To conclude:

My car is very safe and confortable with extra leg room to enjoy the city tour with your friends or your family.

I drive very slowly during the city tour so you can enjoy more of the beautiful views of the city.

The classic city tour is better to be planned at the beginning of your stay as you can get the feel of the city, understand how Paris works, its history and can actually visit actually everything you  need to see during this 4 hours city tour.

If you are interested in some landmark more than another, you can ask me to stop and go inside a museum or a church with the Tour Guide.

You will be in a Mercedes Class V with 6 pivotal seats (and an extra 7th seat at the front) to enjoy the scenery of Paris from different points of view.

Also, my clients feel free to take pictures of me or the tour guide 🙂 we appreciate it ! We are at your service.

You can ask me and the tour guide to stop and take pictures of the city, to go have lunch, to get inside the Louvre and do many more inside activities with your kids or your partner, while I wait for you outside.

If you have any questions, please go to my contact page and send me an email to !
