Stroll along the gardens and view what is known as the Historic Axis of Paris, and you'll see the Luxor Obelisk at the Place Concorde.

Continue with your guide towards the river Seine and see many famous sites, including the imposing Conciergerie, where Marie Antoinette was imprisoned before her execution.

Here, the Cour Napoleon opens wide before you and you'll once again see the statue of Louis XIV on horseback. Your guide will make sure you have your timed entry ticket for the museum, and now you are ready to enter the Louvre for your self-guided visit with an appreciation for the historic context of the landmarks that surround it. Your guided portion will last 45 minutes. Once you leave your guide and enter the museum, your self-guided visit could last anywhere from 1-4 hours. And the memories will last a lifetime.

It was great to go with Frederique on this biketour. We (2 adults, 3 boys 14, 16 en 17 y. old) learned a lot. Frederique speaks Dutch very well (and english, german and more!) and made connections with the Dutch history as well. The boys recognized things from history at school. In the same time, we got to see soms nice spots of Paris as well. It was very nice! Kristin and Jochem and the boys
