What to expect
As the undeniable heart of Paris, it is only fitting that your tour begins outside of Notre Dame Cathedral. Here, you’ll greet your private guide and tour the exterior of the iconic landmark. Receive a historical overview of the Gothic masterpiece and then cross the city’s oldest bridge: Pont Neuf. Your second stop is the Tuileries Gardens, replete with manicured flower beds and attractive flora, before you delve into Paris’ gruesome history and visit Place de la Concorde, the site of Paris’ infamous guillotine. See, too, the iconic Louvre museum and Fontaine Saint Michele, before concluding your historical tour with a stroll down the Champs Elysee.

Very Informative
Jun 2019 • Family
This was my parents first trip to Paris and they are limited in their walking so we took a 2.5 hour tour. Our guide Bellen was able to squeeze a tremendous amount of information into a short time. We saw plenty of sites and learned so much about Paris. I highly recommend this tour and Bellen!

Great Tour and Great Guide ~ Ferit
Jul 2018 • Family
I can't say enough good things about our experience with Babylon Tours. Their communication was always so fast, they were helpful and quick to answer our questions from beginning to end, and our tour guide, Ferit, was so friendly and knowledgable. He is truly talented at what he does and we were so lucky to have him show us around the city. We only had two days to spend in Paris, and his tour was invaluable. Along the tour, he showed us some of the best places for macarons, wine, cheese, and ice cream. He also gave us tips for where we could have a picnic later. He was wonderful with our seven year old son, and easily kept him interested in the tour. He brought up things that he thought my son would like, while he shared information about the city with us. We all felt like we learned so much. He also gave us many great tips about Paris while we were walking, and shared stories about growing up in the city. It was one of our favorite tours during our trip, and we were all so glad to have taken this tour and met Ferit.

A Private guide - THE way to see Paris
May 2014 • Couples
We heard about Babylon Tours from a friend. We booked a private guide for a day to see the center of Paris and the Louvre.

Laura was wonderful! An ex-pat from Australia, she almost spoke the same language as we do in the western USA.

She met us at our apartment near the Grand Palais. We walked east from there past many of the attractions I've reviewed here. Had a coffee in the Tuileries garden to prepare ourselves for an assault on the Louvre. After the Louvre, we had lunch at Le Fumoir. We finished the day crossing Pont Neuf to Île de la Cité and a walk to Notre Dame.

She told us about the history, art and way of life in Paris. Over lunch, she marked up our maps with little hints and things that only locals would know. She was the epitome of a charming hostess showing off "her" city.

Babylon Tours was money VERY well spent.
