Such is the magic that this city holds over its visitors. Thus, a city tour here would definitely make you say “J’aime Paris” for the rest of your life!
So how is one to explore Paris? What would a typical city tour in Paris be like? Let’s first get to the basics. Whether you’re a budget-conscious or luxury traveller hoping to explore the capital city of France, tour packages are available in plenty for you to choose from. Most of the time, tourists tend to book a bespoke city tour that includes an airport pick up and drop off as part of their services. Such tours as offered by agencies like Easy Go Shuttle would feature English and French speaking chauffeurs and will typically last from three hours up to whole-day tours, depending on your requirement. Unless it’s you’re here for a short layover, we recommend a minimum of one day to explore the city as there’s so much to do and see.
If you are on a one day tour is Paris, you can begin your tour with a visit to the Arc de Triomphe, which is a stunning monument built to commemorate Napoleon’s victory at Austerlitz. Next, take a stroll along the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, stopping here and there to shop at its many boutiques, before making your way over to the world-renowned Eiffel Tower, an icon that not just represents Paris but all of France. Then, walk along the serene Seine River and you will soon come to the monumental Louvre Museum, where you can go inside and smile at beautiful Mona Lisa. Finish off your Paris city tour with a visit to a French restaurant and sample the exquisite cuisine that’s adored the world over.
