Private Guide in Paris

Private Guide in Paris - Isabelle

(Member Since 2013) Languages: French, English

At Private Guides you can find an experienced and certified personal tour guide to lead you through the City of Lights. There is nothing better than having a local who loves sharing a passion for the area. Rather than joining one of the large tour groups where you are just a number, you can take a bike ride through the city with one of our guides, go on walking tours, or even explore the city's lesser-known locations. Hiring a private guide is like having a knowledgeable friend take the day off to show you his home town. It does not get better than that.

France is located in western Europe, sharing land borders with Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Spain, and is just across the English Channel from the United Kingdom. France has shorelines on both the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. France is also the most popular tourist destination in the world, topping more than 82 million visitors annually. 

The French Republic certainly has a great deal to offer visitors, making it no surprise that so many people want to come to this beautiful country on holiday. The agreeable weather is wonderful for beach-going along the French Riviera or “green tourism” in the picturesque rural countryside. The country is famous for its notable historical landmarks, for outstanding wines and gourmet  cuisine, and for a rich and vast cultural heritage. From castles to vineyards, museums to ski resorts, France is a country that knows how to keep its visitors entertained.

Of course, the Eiffel Tower in Paris is one of the world’s most renowned landmarks and the most visited paid tourist attraction in the world. The aptly nicknamed “City of Lights” is also famous for the Notre-Dame Cathedral, Versailles Palace, and the Louvre. If you want to go a little deeper than historical landmarks and museums, a tour through the catacombs beneath the city offers a more off-beat tourist experience.

Outside Paris, the French countryside is a wonderful and lovely scene of charming villages and vineyards, ancient medieval castles, and many historical sites. Chateau du Chambord is a Rennaissance fortress popular with tourists, and the Abbey of Mont Saint-Michel an important religious pilgrim destination on the coast of Normandy.  The Palace of the Popes near Avignon is one of the most impressive Gothic structures in the world, and the Chartres Cathedral features stained glass windows from the 13th century.

France’s Atlantic coast features the tallest sand dune in all of Europe beside the Arcachon Bay, the Dune of Pyla. The country’s Mediterranean shores are famous for the breathtaking beaches of the French Riviera, an area known for being the glamorous playground of millionaires in places like St. Tropez. For winter sports, Chamonix in the French Alps is a famous ski resort district.
