Virtually yours… how to do your French sightseeing from home!
It’s not the same as being there, but we’ve found four ways to bring a little bit of Parisian chic into your lockdown life…
1. Take a virtual guided tour of the Louvre
Join your guide for a webinar that takes you behind the scenes and explores some of the famous artwork at this wonderful museum. With interactive polls, live chat, videos and photos you can escape for an hour of culture from the comfort of your home. Past participants said “ Our guide for the ‘Napoleon Treasure Trove in the Louvre’ tour was excellent. Abbey was very knowledgeable and her enthusiasm on the subject was contagious. [In a good way!] The time flew by and I enjoyed it. It was a bargain!”

2. Discover Paris with your own private tour guide

Reviewers say “The guides are outstanding people who clearly love what they do. Their curiosity about what’s around every next corner is, well, infectious! I cannot wait to take more virtual tours, and to let them help me with the itinerary for my next actual trip to Paris.”
