Join us for the Best. Day. Ever.
Here’s the plan…
You’ll meet your guide before heading to discover the hidden spots of Montmartre. One of Paris’s romantic enclaves and the inspiration to well-known artists such as Picasso and Van Gogh.
You’ll be taken off the beaten track to venture down secret passages, admire beautiful squares and pretty churches. You’ll also get a unique panoramic view across the city. With anecdotes from your guide and a stop-off at one of the top bakeries for a buttery croissant delight. You are never short of inspiration. You will also stumble upon the last remaining vineyard in Paris. That’ll be one place to re-visit for a later date.
This is a tour that takes you away from the crowded streets and the zillion selfie-sticks all vying for the same image. You’re headed for the romantic Paris, the real Paris. A perfect morning out.
