For those of you reading this in preparation for a "Paris in a day" tour and you end up with Daniel as your tour guide, just know that you are in for a treat. Daniel is the best tour guide I have experienced and is now the standard with which I will have to rate all my upcoming tours.

Amazing tour! Amazing day! Amazing guide. Violet may be the best guide I have ever encountered. The perfect blend of historian, traveler and authentic personality! She represents your company so well that I can’t wait to try Walks in every other city you represent! Thank you for a wonderful day in my family’s holiday vacation!

The Paris in a day tour is an excellent way to really see the city when you don’t have a lot of time. It’s a FULL day, but well worth it. Violet was extremely knowledgeable about the city’s history and especially art history! She was friendly and took the time to get to know everyone. An absolute delight.

Alberto was an excellent tour guide. He was knowledgeable and able to adjust the tour as necessary when unexpected closures or busy areas occurred. Keeping track of 12 Americans on a packed Paris Metro is no easy task! I book with Walks whenever possible and wish they would expand to more and more cities around the world.

Our tour guide Adam was incredible. We went in skeptical- our first time on a guided tour, quite honestly lured by the skip the line access & hitting the highlights in a day. We were overwhelmed with how much we learned along the way from Adam including history & local tips & tricks. It was our best day of vacation, possibly ever. So impressed- looking forward to returning to Paris in the future and will definitely seek a tour with Adam when we do!

What can I bring inside the Louvre Museums?
Please note that the Louvre will not allow large items inside the museum, so you should bring only a small daypack or handbag. More specifically, only bags smaller than 21.5 in x 13.5 in x 7.5 in (55 cm x 35 cm x 20) cm are permitted. Suitcases and large bags must be left outside. Closed, clear bottles of water are allowed inside the Louvre however food is forbidden inside the site. Please be advised that the use of selfie sticks and flash photography is not allowed inside the Louvre. Additional security checks may cause longer waits at unavoidable security lines at times.
Is the Eiffel Tower always included on this tour?
The Eiffel tower is open almost every day of the year, but it often closes on Bastille Day (July 14th) in order to set up for the annual fireworks display above the tower. Some years preparations begin on the afternoon of the 13th. If you are planning to visit the Tower around Bastille Day, please contact our customer services team to check on the hours of closure for the Tower.
Can I bring a stroller on this trip with me?
Yes, but please be aware that not every metro station that we use has working elevators. If you bring a stroller for your child you will have to carry it up some stairs.
Can you guarantee that I will see every room in the Louvre listed here?
We can't guarantee it, but it's very likely. As with all museums, particular galleries of the Louvre may be closed without prior notice, or pieces may be removed for restoration or loan. In this case, your guide will make an appropriate substitution. However, as the pieces and the rooms we visit on our tour are the most important in the museum, these are the ones least likely to close or leave on loan.
When we're on the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower, can I buy tickets to access the top of the tower.
Unfortunately, no. If you want to buy tickets to the top of the tower you have to return to the bottom, wait in line, then buy your ticket to the top. They cost €25.00 each.
Do I need to bring an ID with me on this tour?
Yes! Please ensure that all members of your party have a valid ID on them on the day of the visit. This is particularly important for guests who have qualified for a student discount.
