Private Tour: 2CV Secret Paris Tour
Introduced in the mid-1940s, the economical Citroen 2CV cars quickly became a popular sight on French roads. The cars’ design has changed a lot over the past few decades, but the original models are still held in fond regard. Your tour takes place in one of these much-loved originals – a vintage convertible 2CV.
Avoiding the well-trodden sites of the city center, your tour focuses on the city’s hidden gems. Discover the chic delights of Place Vendôme, the elegant square lined with boutiques, jewelers and ritzy hotels. Swing past Kiosque des Noctambules, a contemporary piece of street art by French artist Jean-Michel Othniel, and then stop for photos by Stravinsky Fountain. The water feature is embellished with colorful sculptures that are said to represent running water.
Visit the neighborhood of Le Marais to see Place du Marché Sainte-Catherine, a peaceful square, and learn about the area’s buskers and artists from your guide. Other notable attractions around Le Marais include Hôtel de Sully and Hôtel de Sens, two lavish private mansions.
After 1.5 hours exploring the city, finish your 2CV tour at your central Paris hotel or in front of Le Petit Palais

If you have ever seen the short movie "Rendezvous in paris" this was it but in a 2CV. It helped that it was New Years Day and the roads of Paris were empty but WOW what a journey. Definitely saw part of Paris you wouldn't see on any other type of tour (specially as the others are generally on a Double Decker Bus). Some of the passage ways were so narrow and then the blast along the River Bank was definitely a moment to remember. My only small concerns would be view out of the car with the roof closed and being able to hear ( and understand) our tour guide.
This was amazing and a wonderful way to see Paris and learn lots of new facts. Our guide was very informative and great fun. I could not recommend this trip more .... fantastic way to spend the morning.
Very disappointed! Our guide was hard to understand, as he had a heavy accent and he did not understand our questions at all. He was enthusiastic and LOVED driving the car, but he took us to the same secret places that we already knew about. At the end he had us fill out an evaluation form and of course, with him watching us fill it ou,t we gave him all excellent. He was a nice guy, but we rarely got out of the car and asking him where we were so we could return later, was impossible. As he did not really know what we were asking. He knew his script but actual communication was not there. Expensive and we left thinking we gained nothing
We had an amazing time and Our guide, Kevin, was really great and very informative ! We saw a lot of parts of Paris that we had never seen before and what a unique way to view it through the roof of a 2CV. A truly Parisien experience!
Had a wonderful time! Would highly recommend this tour and we will go again the next time we are in Paris! Tracey Jerger - Illinois USA
