SIGHTSEEING TOURS IN & around PARIS
Introduction to Paris
Whether your first time in the City of Lights and Love or a return pilgrimage, Paris captures the spirit, mind and imagination beyond all other cities. A chameleon, Paris is to be experienced in its many guises. An historic, romantic, artistic, cultural and shopping mecca.
Be awed by Paris’ majesty, beauty and charm. Take the time to wander its avenues, visit the iconic monuments, be inspired by its artwork, sail under the famous bridges of the Seine, walk through its gardens, relish Parisian cuisine accompanied by a French wine, and, finally see Paris after dark - with all of its spectacular night light and life! The restaurants, revues, shows and light shows to transfix you.
No visit to Paris is complete without touring the magnificent Palace of Versailles with its proportions, opulence and beauty.
Less vast but infinitely more personal, is to enter the world of Claude Monet, father of Impressionism, who lived, painted and was inspired by the truly beautiful surrounds of his private world of Giverny. A art and garden lovers delight.
This is just a taste, a morsel, of all that is Paris. Eat it with relish!
