It would be unthinkable to go to Paris for the first time and miss out one of the children’s favorites: the Eiffel Tower! You will enjoy a fantastic scooter ride around the Eiffel Tower area and along the banks of the River Seine with a private English-speaking guide. Discover the main places of interest in the area: the Invalides, the Grand Palais, the banks of the Seine River and the Pont Alexandre III… We provide helmets as well as knee and elbow protections for your security. You will finish up this great tour in front of the Eiffel Tower.
If you wish to climb up the Eiffel Tower, no problem! We can arrange priority access tickets to Iron Lady so you won’t need to stand in line. The views of Paris are absolutely stunning from the top floor!
Once back on the ground, it’s time to hop on a cruise boat for a delicious dinner. While admiring some of the most iconic monuments of Paris (Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre Museum, the Conciergerie), you will savor a typical french dinner.
At the end of this memorable experience, our private chauffeur will drive you back to your hotel.
Day 2 – A French Lesson and an Outdoor Photo Workshop
After breakfast, our chauffeur will be waiting for you at your hotel and bring you to the Mini Palais. Our experienced French teacher will be waiting for you on the beautiful patio of this amazing café. Your private family French lesson will begin: “Bonjour, un café s’il vous plaît.” Knowing a few French words will be extremely useful for your children to have an active role during their break.
Once finished, you can either have lunch at the Mini Palais, or we will provide recommendations.
After lunch, you will meet our professional photographer. Inside the magnificent Jardin des Tuileries and around the Louvre, you will discover the techniques of the eighth art with a professional photographer. Everyone in the family, from beginners to experts, will be able to use an SLR camera and take pictures of their family or the beautiful architecture. A great way to return home with your very own professional pictures of Paris’s highlights.
Day 3 – A Visit of Montmartre and Becoming a Parfumeur
After breakfast, our private chauffeur will pick you up at your hotel and drive you to Montmartre for your first activity: an outdoor guided walking tour of Montmartre which will get you to both the iconic and off the beaten tracks gems of the area. Using their fun-packed game booklet, your children will lead the way through the charming streets of the neighborhood. The tour will end in a secret garden in the heart of Montmartre where a portraitist will be waiting to sketch a portrait of everyone.
We will give you restaurant recommendations for a nice lunch in the area.
After lunch, our private chauffeur will drive you to a private Parisian house to enjoy our hands-on “Become a parfumeur” activity. During two hours, you will discover the secrets of the French art of parfumerie. This activity will take place on the terrace of this lovely house to enjoy the sunny day. After blind sampling the different scents, you will choose your favorite and mix them to create your very own perfume which you will bring back home.
After this authentic French experience, our chauffeur will drive you back to the hotel. Your whole family will then be able to relax and spend some time together.
Day 4 – The Versailles Gardens
It’s time to discover some of the most beautiful French style gardens in the world: The Palace of Versailles’ gardens. After breakfast, our chauffeur will pick you up at your hotel and drive you to the Palace of Versailles.
First you will discover a local marketplace where your guide will be waiting. Together, you will buy some food and drinks for the picnic lunch. After visiting the traditional market, you will hop on your bicycles and discover the large Versailles Park. You will pass by some iconic royal monuments such as the Grand Trianon, the Petit Trianon and Le Hameau de la Reine.

After lunch, you will discover the beautiful French style gardens by foot. These gardens created by André Lenotre in the 17th century will be a playground for the children thanks to our entertaining game booklet.
Visiting the inside of the Palace can be tiring for the children, so you can either choose to head back to the hotel or visit the palace.
After this wonderful experience, your chauffeur will drive you back to the airport or train station.
