The Tour you Can’t Miss in Paris

If you didn’t know by now, Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world. When my mom retired, my sister and I figured it was the perfect time to have a girls trip to celebrate this milestone and we decided on Paris. This would be my moms 2nd trip there, my 3rd and my sisters very first time in this incredible city.

My first thought was how excited I was to be going on this adventure with them but my 2nd honestly was stressing out  a little about doing the same exact thing I had done in previous trips, over again.

Thankfully I came across this really unique tour of the city and knew I had to book it.

Cedric’s Paris offers many different tours around Paris while cruising in one of their old school CV2 cars OR a larger VW Kombi. While we would have fit very comfortably in a CV2 – I had my eye on the Volkswagen Kombi and decided to splurge and book that instead… after all, we were there to celebrate!

Cedric’s Paris offers many different types of tours but we went with the 2 hour Paris by Night Tour. There is something about Paris at night that is unforgettable and truly mesmerizing and by the end of the tour, I was so happy we decided on this one.

Chris was our driver and he picked us up promptly at 9:30pm. When you book a 2 hour tour, Cedric’s Paris will give you a complimentary additional 1/2 hour or a bottle of champagne. We decided to go with the extra time and brought along 2 bottles of our own champagne. He mapped out a personalized itinerary based on what we told him we wanted to see and it was perfect in every way. When you go to Paris you visually see these iconic monuments and grand buildings and while you are in awe – do you know the background history of what you are seeing? More than likely – No. Chris was full of knowledge and besides the incredible views, we learned so much about the city.

What I loved most about this tour was that it was perfect for someone who have never been to Paris AND the person who has been multiple times. All of the guides are born and raised Parisians and so they are very passionate at showing and teaching you all about their city. They know this city like the back of their hand and when you get dropped off at the end of the night – you will not be disappointed. This was the absolute BEST tour I have ever done in Paris and cannot recommend it enough.

      That was one of the secret spots our driver took us too where he said would be the best view and he was right!

    My wife’s family sailed from Paris to the US in the late 1700’s. She has been wanted to go visit her family roots for years. Looks like we need to plan a trip and go! Steve

      I’ll be in Paris at the end of the month again also 🙂 Totally look into this company, if not the van – the 2CVs are super cute as well. Such a great way to learn about the city.

    This is a fab idea for a tour around Paris! Love the whole Camper van idea and looks really fun and quirky! Seeing Paris by night definitely gives a more romantic perspective.

    A trip to celebrate something is always a good idea, I had never heard about this tour before but it look likes an amazing option to discover Paris by night! 🙂

    Wooow this seems such a fun way to explore Paris! It’s one of my favourite cities and I try to go as often as I can (Amsterdam is only a 5 hr drive away from there) but never explored it this way! Really cool new idea 😀
