The original tour of Paris is in a 2CV (that's the Beetle-like cult French car that makes you think of twirled waxed mustaches and black beret-wearing Frenchmen). This is one of the most comfortable and entertaining ways to the see the city. Your personalized tour guide gives you a running commentary as you tool through the narrow Paris streets and the broad Parisian avenues. There's ample flexibility, too. Tours last about 1 1/2 hours and the best times are mornings or early afternoons and also at night. Hours to avoid are rush hour. This is a delightful way to see the city and these guides are all genuinely passionate about Paris; Like Kevin - a half-French half-Canadian Paris resident for 30 years who will delight you by the breadth of details he'll narrate as he expertly navigates you through the quaint and colorful streets of Paris.
- Tours and Excursions: "When you opt for the Secret Paris tour, expect to have the city's little-known side streets in cherished neighborhoods like Montmartre and the Marais revealed. For romantics: Opt for the night time excursion with champagne. The very French name of the company literally translates to: 4 Wheels Under 1 Umbrella."
- Best for Tours and Excursions Because: One of Paris' longest-running city tours, there is no escaping the charm of seeing the City of Lights in a classic 2CV.
