9-Hour Paris in a Day - Escorted Day Tour

See all of Paris' top attractions in a single, epic day of sightseeing. Skip the lines at busy sights like the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower; enjoy stories, background and history from your expert local guide; and at the end of the day, jump on a sunset Seine River cruise to see many of Paris' most beautiful buildings from the water. And there you have it; the best of Paris in a day.

Paris is a big city packed with incredible attractions, but with careful planning and Skip the Line Access, you can see it all in a single, unforgettable day. That's where we come in.

You'll meet your local guide first thing in the morning to start your complete Paris city tour at the base of Montmartre hill. Hop on the funicular for the short to ride to the top to see the Sacré Coeur Basilica & stunning views of Paris. For the next hour you'll explore the basilica and the neighborhood of Montmartre; seeing its most atmospheric squares and streets, one of the iconic windmills and Montmartre vineyard. As you stroll you'll learn about the artists and writers who called these cobble-stoned lanes home, and see bars where Picasso used to party.

Afterwards, catch the metro to Ile de la Cité for an adventure into the heart of Medieval Paris. Visit the Cathedral of Notre Dame to learn how the city started on this very island, growing from a Roman outpost into the most populous and prosperous city in Europe. Notre Dame isn't the only amazing sight on Ile de la Cité though. You'll also see La Conciergerie, the prison where Marie Antoinette was kept before she was beheaded; Place Dauphine, possibly the prettiest square in Paris; and gorgeous Pont Neuf bridge.

A short walk down the Seine brings you to the Louvre Museum. We'll break for lunch (not included but your guide will give you recommendations for every taste and budget), then reconvene for Skip the Line entry to the museum. Then it's time to dive into one of the world's greatest collections of art.

During your two-hour Louvre tour, you'll see all the highlights; including paintings by the French Romantics, sculptures by Michelangelo and Anthony Canova, and jaw-dropping statues from Antiquity like the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace. Of course, you can't go to the Louvre without pausing to see the Mona Lisa, and with an expert guide on hand you'll get so much more from that experience.

Another short metro ride with your guide brings you Trocadero Plaza for the best views of the Eiffel Tower. A major advantage of your Paris city tour is that you have skip the line Eiffel Tower tickets, avoiding what could be hours of waiting in line. Entry times vary depending on the day, but your guide will give you a Seine River cruise ticket so if you get a later entry time you'll be able to enjoy relaxing, sundown views of the Musée d'Or
