Spend some wonderful time with your children in Paris as you explore iconic monuments such as the Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame Cathedral, or take part in fun-filled, hands-on workshops linked to the local culture, such as our “painting like the Impressionists” or “learning how to bake delicious French pastries” workshops.
DAY 1: PASTRY BAKING CLASS
Meet your private chauffeur at the airport or train station and let them drive you safely to your hotel. Lunch at leisure.
In the afternoon, meet your private, experienced chef, who will introduce you to the delicious world of French pastries. After a short introduction on the simple rules of baking pastries, everyone will get their hands deliciously dirty! During the 2-hour class, you will prepare your puffy creations like chocolate éclairs and choux à la crème by kneading the dough, adding fillings and toppings and putting them in the oven. At the end of the workshop, you will walk out with a bag filled with your very own self-made pastries.
DAY 2: THE LOUVRE AND PERFUME MAKING CLASS
In the morning, you will meet your private, experienced guide at the Louvre Museum. Follow them inside the world’s largest museum in search of 9 of its most famous highlights. During this specially-designed treasure hunt, you and your family will discover masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace (the goddess Nike) in a very engaging and entertaining way. Your young treasure hunters will get a gift at the end of this fun-filled 2-hour visit if they have succeeded in completing all the tasks. Lunch at leisure in the area.
In the afternoon, you will discover a perfume atelier. Meet your private perfume expert, who will tell you all about the world of smells and perfume. Once you master the theory of perfume making, all your family members will create their own perfumes. The small bottle with your self-made perfume is yours to keep.
DAY 3: MEDIEVAL PARIS AND THE IMPRESSIONISTS
In the morning, you will make your way to the starting point of this private Medieval Paris walking tour. Follow your guide as they take you back to some 800 years ago to a time when knights, dames, monks and beggars roamed the cobblestone streets of Paris. From Hôtel de Sens, one of the last medieval mansions still standing, make your way toward Notre Dame Cathedral through narrow medieval streets and passing by the ruins of the 12th century fortification wall that once protected the citizens of Paris from possible barbaric invasions. The tour ends at Notre Dame Cathedral, built more than 850 years ago and saved from destruction thanks to Victor Hugo’s famous novel, “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. Each child will get a game booklet to keep them engaged. Lunch at leisure in the area.
In the afternoon, you will meet your private, experienced art teacher in front of the Orangerie Museum. They will take you through the museum’s highlights, including Monet’s Water Lilies for about 40 minutes. With these images still fresh in your minds, and after a 15-minute drive to the atelier in a private minivan, you will arrive at the workshop. In a cozy atmosphere, everyone will participate in the creation of a giant family Impressionist reproduction of the Water Lilies using pastels.
DAY 4: THE EIFFEL TOWER
The Eiffel Tower is Paris’ tallest and most iconic monument. Follow your guide as they take you up the Iron Lady, stopping at each of the 3 floors. The first floor is where you will find the swaying observatory and a fragment of the old staircase, the second floor offers the best photos of Paris, but the target is to go up to the 3rd floor: the highest point in Paris. During this 2-hour visit, your private guide will tell you all about the history of the tower, as well as all the stories that have constructed the reputation it has today. To keep your children engaged throughout the visit, they will each get a fun-filled game booklet. Lunch at leisure.
