Take in the City of Lights with a tour guide and sightseeing tour.

There are several hop-on-hop-off bus tours available that feature recorded commentary in multiple languages and make stops at the most popular points of attraction in the city.

Learn about the Parisian food scene and local markets with a tasting and market tour. There aren't many ways to better get a glimpse at local life in a city than by exploring its markets.
