Tours in Greater Paris

5 “Get a breath of fresh air tours” in Greater Paris

These tours are differents from all our other tours for two good reasons : on the one hand, they venture away from Paris, in the Ile-de-France region, to make the most of its finest landscapes and medieval architecture and bucolic feel. On the other hand, these are no longer tuktuk tours as we will drive you in the comfort of classy and vintage jaguar or mercedes… .
These tours ar especially adapted to those who stay more than 4 or 5 days in Paris : however enticing the french capital might be, getting out of it by contrast , will have you appreciate it even more when you get back to it after the tour.
It is to be noted that these tours appeal greatly to the youngest, as the beauty of the countryside around Paris, of nature and landscapes and of dreamlike castles, reaches out to their close to immaculate wonderment abilities.
