Coming to any new big city takes a few days to get oriented. Some tourists prefer to use city guides and explore on their own. This works fine for a quick overview of the main monuments like Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysee and the Louvre. However if you want to get a beteter feel of this great city you need to take a tour or if you have the budget a private guide who will show you around at your own pace and give you the anecdotes you won't find in the guides books. If you have 4 people in your group then the difference in cost between a scheduled tour and private tour is negligable.
If you unsure where to start then read about the different arrondissement of Paris. or send me an email to discuss the different options.
Just a note to say thank you for co-coordinating our sightseeing in Paris. The morning day drive was just right as was the all-day tour to Giverny Versailles with the helicopter overview. The Seine (Marina) dinner cruise was great, and the night lights tour was OK in spite of the confusion about the pick up location after the dinner. Thank you for the credit of the one hour of time that we missed. I did not take into account the later sunset in July; the last time we did this was in April and we started the tour later in total darkness so all of the illuminations were much better--my fault! I would be pleased to recommend you and your services to any of our friends or to any of your potential clients. JK
