Enjoy the Best of Paris (And We Do All the Planning…)

When we aren’t promenading the city with our guests, we are busy curating what’s-what in Paris for readers of PARIS > D E F I N E D MAGAZINE . Join us on an immersive, Paris adventure…a perfect Paris ‘playlist’All Inclusive!  

Let’s begin our perfect morning in the hip Canal St. Martin quarter, along a canal commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte, where we taste some of the best croissants and morning pastries in town. Then on to Le Marais Medieval district, for a food walk like no other

Then we pick up our rare French Cheeses in Paris’ oldest covered market…

Paris’ best classic desserts, chocolates, and coffee…

and some daring flavors by wily upstart bakers…

and stunning, hidden history along the way. (Like a cannonball from the Revolution and the old wall of Paris from 1000 years long ago….and some secrets we’ll save for the moment.)

We’ll hop on bikes and zigzag charming backstreets, inaccessible to big ‘tour’ groups, as you become Parisian with us by the end of the day…

Let’s ride up close — from the best angles– to all the essential sights of Paris (and of course we’ll keep some hidden gems as a surprise.)

Let’s enjoy French Champagne, and a chic picnic in a palace garden (weather permitting). 

Get up close to the Eiffel Tower and cruise Paris’ most beautiful ‘avenue’ — the River Seine as Paris sparkles. We pop bubbly and taste [ even more] unmissable French bites for a relaxing finish to a memorable day.

It’s the best of Paris in one leisurely experience!

Good to Know

You’ll see (and taste) the Best of Paris at a relaxed, leisurely, pace by walking (about 2.5 hours w/ stops every 10-15 minutes), relaxing on a boat cruise on the river Seine (seated comfortably with Champagne and French apéro), and biking along mostly quiet backstreets to get up-close to famous sights (about 2-2.5 hours at a leisure pace with stops every 10-15 min.) and seated or standing (about 2 hours) at unique stops along the way (like one of Paris’ most-loved food marché). And a garden picnic when the weather allows.

We have designed this experience so you’ll know you made the most of the day….Dress for the weather as we explore and taste our way through the best of Paris rain or shine. [But Paris is beautiful in the rain…]
