6-Hour Private Custom Tour of Paris
On the walking tour, you can enjoy a relaxed stroll around central attractions like Notre-Dame Cathedral, learning about the history of Paris, from the medieval period to the late 19th century to the Paris of today. Gain an overview of the city’s art and architecture, and learn about the role of Paris throughout European history. Visit the Latin Quarter and the Shakespeare and Co. bookstore; pass by the Hotel de Ville, Les Halles, Cathedral of St. Eustache, and the Louvre; and check out Place Vendôme, Place de la Concorde, the Champs-Élysées, and more.
On the car tour, you can cover more ground, passing by all the highlights of the city. It's great whether you're in town for a short period or a long one, as you can check off the major landmarks or find out what you'd like to see later in more depth on your own.

The tour included a minibus for our group of 10 people, the driver and the guide. Our guide, Boris, was knowledgeable, pleasant and entertaining. We did not know much about Paris so he put an itinerary together for us. Overall, we were very pleased.
We visited Paris for a quick 3-4 day trip with our 16, 13 and 11 year olds. Decided a one on one tour would really cut down on the stress of trying to cram it all in such a short time. Caroline was excellent and very knowledgeable on art history. And I was able to relax and not play tour guide!!! Tailored the 6 hour day to exactly what we wanted. We met at 10 am (in advance I called Paris and spoke with Boris who forwarded some of our goals for the day). Totally recommend! We had a driver but didn’t use him Much because we stayed in a walkable area between Notre Dame, Marais and Hotel de Ville. Traffic is not fun and can waste some valuable time. As a family, the metro is the best way to zip around grab a two day pass and have fun. The kids loved figuring it out! The tour was a bit pricey but I do think in the end it was worth all of our sanity.
Boris was incredibly knowledgeable and articulate--our group began referring to him as a walking encyclopedia. Many of us had been to Paris multiple times and done other tours, but we all walked away with new nuggets of information and lots to talk about. Boris customized the tour for us to focus on wine. He did a nice job of planning opportunities for us to taste wine as well as intertwined the history and importance of wine in French history and the sites we visited (e.g. Notre Dame). The downside was that we spent a lot of time in the car, stuck in traffic. As a result, over six hours, we only got to stop at two wine tastings, Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower--Boris told us about some other other sites as we could see them from the car. We all would have liked to have had more time at the sites and less time in the car. Obviously it was out of Boris' control that roads were closed and traffic was heavy, but it was a disappointment nonetheless.
Our tour was excellent. WE were only in Paris a short time and Boris showed everything we wanted to see in more. He provided us with history that I doubt any other tour guide could have given us. He was interesting and made the tour a blast. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paris.
Our short but truly amazing Paris rendezvous was made more exciting by our guide Boris Petrovic. He made the landmarks in Paris come alive with his narrative that is easy to understand even by our children. Boris speaks very fluent English and that makes for an excellent engagement. I would highly recommend this trip for those who are short of time and for Boris take you to the same tour and to a special place of your preference. The trip will make you comeback to Paris and stay longer.
Our tour guide, Boris, was the best we could possibly have hoped for. He and our driver took us first to Notre Dame, then a lunch at the oldest restaurant in Paris, once frequented by Napoleon, Jefferson, Franklin, Robespierre and Voltaire. Next up was the Pantheon, the Louvre and the Eiffel tower. Lastly my wife was able to buy a purse at Louie Vitton. Boris brought us back to the train station just in time for boarding, making sure we qued up in the proper line for customs. We will be back. This was for our family of 5, my wife and i and three boys 8,11 and 13.
