Take a guided tour with us and discover the heart of Paris. We'll explore the Ile de la Cité, see the famous Shakespeare & Company bookstore and the exterior of Notre Dame Cathedral. Marvel at the prowess of her 13th century builders -she survived the devastating fire of April 2019 and a new page of her history is being written today as we visit. Your expert guide will tell you about her incredible construction, the mastery of her medieval architects and builders, and we'll watch history unfold before us as she readies herself to stand tall for another eight centuries. Our special pre-reserved access allows us to skip the long lines, and marvel at the spectacular stained glass of the 13th century Sainte Chapelle, some of best-preserved and most breathtaking in the world. This gem is not to be missed! We'll also visit the medieval palace and revolutionary prison of the Conciergerie, again with pre-booked access, and the cell where Marie Antoinette was kept before she was guillotined in 1793. Enjoy strolling through the streets of this charming island with your local guide, hear the fascinating stories of it's long history, see one of the prettiest squares in Paris, and end your tour on the oldest bridge in the city. Please note there may be up to 20 guests in your group.
