Paris Right Bank 2-Hour Private Walking Tour

4. Paris Right Bank 2-Hour Private Walking Tour

While the Left bank has always been associated with universities, the arts, youth culture, and free and forward thinking, the Right Bank was the seat of French power. Authority emanated from the royal court and had a significant impact on the character of its surroundings. A 2-hour walk on the Right Bank is a very different experience compared to a visit to the Left Bank, which is home to the Latin Quarter and Saint-Germain. As you take in the buildings of the Right Bank your guide will compare the way authority was shown in medieval times with the manner in which it was demonstrated in the neoclassical period. You won’t only dwell on the official aspects of this area, however. You’ll also visit sites that have seen a change from their original purpose and acquired some interesting, unexpected functions and fame. Principal sites visited on the tour include the Cour Carré, Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois, Comédie-Française, Rue Saint-Honoré, Palais-Royal, Galerie Vivienne, Rue de Rivoli, Place Vendôme, and the Tuileries.

What people are saying about Palais-Royal

Our guide Marine was super friendly and told and showed us a lot about Paris. With their help, we have been able to see Paris through different eyes and empathize with the pride and love of Parisians for their city. Marine can also speak a little German, so that she could also talk to our youngest and talk about something. That was great. This tour is highly recommended. The price-performance ratio is also great. An almost 3 hour tour through the city followed by a boat tour.

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

Our tour guide, Kenza, was amazing! We enjoyed the tour so much and highly recommend it as you’ll get a lot more info and enjoy the experience way more than if you didn’t have the details. She was also great with our five year old daughter and made everything fun and easy to understand for her!

We enjoyed our tour very much. The guide was excellent and added extra information about the art and architecture once she knew we are very interested in these subject. We had a wonderful time with her.

Fun and informative. The guide was so knowledgeable. We learned a little history, a little architecture, and a little culture. Perfect two hour tour!
