This is no standard tour of the City of Light. There is no room here for ordinary activities and tourist traps! On your Parisian adventure, you will enjoy a walking food & wine tasting around the Le Marais district, a night drive in an open-top Citroën 2CV to see the city's famous monuments by night, a cabaret show at the renowned Moulin Rouge, and a jazz concert at the “Duc des Lombards”. Don't worry though - you won’t miss out on the most iconic highlights like the Eiffel tower. Notre Dame is a maybe. Unlike most visitors though, you'll be able to say that you've tasted the best ice cream in Paris at Chez Berthillon on the exclusive Île Saint-Louis!
