Traveling as a Group
Are you organizing a trip with friends or just planning to come as an extended family?
Either way, we would love to help you design a tailor-made stay which everyone will enjoy.
Most of our activities can be enjoyed in groups of various sizes. If your group is large, we will divide it into smaller groups and have multiple guides to make sure the quality of the visits remain as good and attentive as if you were solo.
We also developed a range of activities specially designed for groups: private chateau visits, song recording, sessions with actors, cooking classes, cocktails and so many other opportunities to create wonderful memories together with family and friends.
Our offers for groups are always bespoke, taking into considerations the needs and desires of each family.
Traveling as a Group – Overview
Below is one example of a trip we built for a group of 71 people. The group was composed of grandparents and grandchildren aged from 7 to 87. Enjoying their annual trip to Europe, the group wanted a tour that was highly focused on culture but still fun for the teenagers.

Traveling as a Group – Itinerary
Day 1 – The Eiffel Tower
Welcome to Paris! Our English-speaking team will be waiting to meet you at the airport with a suitable vehicle to drive you to the hotel.
Once you have arrived at your hotel, we will take care of your luggage while you enjoy a brunch in a famous tea shop known to serve the best chocolat chaud in Paris! A lovely and warming treat to help restore you after a long flight!
After a moment’s rest in your rooms, you will jump aboard the double-decker bus to make the trip to Eiffel Tower, affectionately known as the French “Iron Lady”. We will have pre-booked tickets for you so that you can take the express route up the tower in the lifts.
After you have had the chance to enjoy the views from the top, it will be back to earth and time to board the nearby Bâteaux Mouches for a 3-course dinner, the ideal way to enjoy an overall view of the City of Lights over a delicious meal.
At the end of the cruise, your driver will be on hand to take you back to the hotel.
Day 2 – The Da Vinci Code Tour and Treasure Hunt at the Louvre
First stop this morning is the Latin Quarter, where you will head with your driver after breakfast.
There you will meet your certified guide(s) for an exhilarating change of scene and pace with our unique Da Vinci code tour.
Look for clues as you walk from the Panthéon to the Pont des Arts, on to the famous Saint Sulpice church, and through the Jardin du Luxembourg before finishing up in Saint Germain des Prés… All along the way you will follow clues and riddles as the mystery unravels!
In the afternoon, the next bit of group fun will be our famous treasure hunt in the Louvre.
To make the visit a bit easier, we will split you into smaller groups to show you the museum’s masterpieces in an entertaining way thanks to our exclusive game that uses puzzles, activity books and even a surprise at the end. A lot to learn and plenty to enjoy!
Once the activity has drawn to a close, your private chauffeur will pick you up and drive you back to the hotel.
Day 3 – Medieval Paris and the Marais
After breakfast, your driver will take you to one of the oldest parts of Paris, dropping you at the Musée de Cluny, the city’s medieval museum.
Your certified guide(s) will be awaiting your arrival, and you’ll get started with a fun walking tour that will teach you all there is to know about Paris’s past. Along the way you’ll see a medieval garden, Cathédrale Notre Dame and Ile de La Cité, iconic half-timbered houses, the former city walls and even a fortress… all in the very heart of Paris!
As always, the commentary will be specially designed so that the kids are as captivated as the adults, and our activity books and clues always get a fantastic reaction! At the end of the tour, the group will meet real chevaliers (knights) for a special and memorable ceremony where the kids will be dubbed – arise brave knights and fair maidens!
In the afternoon, your group will join an eclectic tour of the Marais.
This guided tour takes in all of the unmissable historical parts of this medieval part of the city: the hôtels particuliers (private mansions) and the astonishing Place des Vosges, the old Jewish neighbourhood with all its bakeries and falafel shops, as well as the artistic quarter, where you will catch a glimpse of the Beaubourg modern art museum. A bit of something for everyone!
The tour finishes up at a cooking school.
Here, each member of the group will dress up as a chef and enjoy taking part in a very special dinner: adults and children alike will experience different cooking workshops – savoury or sweet, cocktails, bread, chocolate – while sampling all of the delicious dishes that are prepared. A fun and yummy way to discover the fine art of French gastronomy!
When you’re feeling full and enlightened, your private chauffeur will pick you up to take you back to the hotel.
Day 4 – Montmartre
When you’ve eaten up your petit déjeuner, your private chauffeur will come and pick you to take you to Montmartre.
At the bottom of the hill – or butte – leading up to this famous village, your certified guide(s) will meet you and your group for a two-hour guided walk that will give everybody a whole new experience of the famous hill. This village is almost entirely self-sufficient, with its mills for making bread, vineyards for its own wine, churches and a cemetery, not to mention its several cabarets. Can we really still be in Paris?!
After a bite of lunch, your driver will take you to your next stop: Vaux le Vicomte, a stunning château and garden outside Paris.
Once arrived there, your group will discover the typically French formal gardens, which were designed by André le Notre. This was his first masterpiece before going on to create the gardens at the Palais de Versailles, which are even more grand and famous.
After a short non-guided visit to the gardens, your group will meet up with our vocal coach to record your own song about your trip in Paris. You will start with some exercises to warm up your vocal chords, before forming a real choir to start training, and then… recording! This is a wonderfully fun opportunity that will create life-long memories for the group. You will leave with a CD of the song in your hands, or – if you are leaving too soon – it will be sent home.
At the end of the recording, the façade and the interior of the château will be lit up with candles – a special treat for your group. Your certified guide(s) will take you on an exclusive one-hour private visit round the house, telling you all the hidden secrets about how it inspired the building of Versailles (a special treat for the youngest kids… musketeer costumes will be available!). At the end of the visit, a champagne cocktail will be served in the Grand Salon – another exclusive opportunity for your group. Finally, dinner will be served in the restaurant in the dramatic courtyard.
After another long day of fun and learning, your driver will whisk you back to your hotel.
Day 5 – Departure
After breakfast, it’s back to the airport, hopefully saying “au revoir” rather than “goodbye”!
Here is the feedback from our client: “I have heard nothing but rave reviews – everyone is still just so excited!!! The trip was wonderful and several of the young people felt is was their best trip ever!”
