This private Le Havre shore trip
allows you to visit one of Paris's famous museums, the Louvre or the Orsay. You also enjoy a scenic Paris driving tour and have free time for lunch in a typical Parisian caf̩e.
After meeting your guide you immediately depart for Paris. Upon arrival you enjoy a scenic driving tour of the city's main sites, such as the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. The number of sites seen on the driving tour are based on the traffic conditions driving to the city and within the city itself.

This is the founding site of the city and also the home to the Notre Dame Cathedral. Your guide will give you information about the Cathedral but please note that guides are not allowed to provide commentary inside the cathedral.
Next you are given free time to enjoy lunch on your own in one of the island's popular caf̩es.
This afternoon you will visit one of the most famous museums in Paris, if not the world. At the time of your reservation you choose if you would like to visit the Louvre or Orsay Museum.
The Louvre Museum
- On their first visit to the Louvre, most people want to see the three great ladies of the museum including the Venus de Milo, the Victory of Samothrace, and Mona Lisa. You can discover these and other key works and reflect upon that indefinable notion of masterpieces. If you have special requests to visit a specific art piece or wing of the museum, please ask in advance. However, please note that the museum's collection is so large that if you spent one minute at each piece, you would spend your entire life in the museum.
: The Louvre Museum is closed every Tuesday and on the following holidays: January 1st, May 1st, November 11 and December 25.
The Orsay Museum
- The former President of France, Jacques Chirac, was once the mayor of Paris. One of his greatest achievements as mayor was the conversion of the once abandoned Orsay train station into a world class museum. The building itself is a beautiful site and tribute to the great rail stations of Europe. The museum is most famous for its Impressionist works including those by Monet, Renoir and van Gogh, just to name a few. There is also a wonderful Art Nouveau section.
: The Orsay Museum is closed every Monday and on the following holidays: January 1st, May 1st and December 25. No group visits are allowed on Sunday.
After your museum visit you return to Le Havre.
