Discover Paris’ off-the-grid enclaves and attractions on a private tour by Deux Chevaux, a vintage convertible 2CV car! Escaping the crowds of the city’s big-name monuments, the tour puts the spotlight on some of Paris’ lesser-known but equally laudable sights. Choose a start time to suit your schedule, and see kooky street art, grand mansions in Le Marais neighborhood and elegant squares like Place Vendôme.
Meet your private guide on avenue des Champs-Élysées or at your central Paris hotel, and then hop aboard your 2CV car. Sit in the passenger seat as your guide takes care of the driving, allowing you to admire the sights. Throughout your tour, enjoy several photo stops and chat with your guide about Paris’ off-the-beaten-path sites as well as your 2VC car.Introduced in the mid-1940s, the economical Citroen 2CV cars quickly became a popular sight on French roads. The cars’ design has changed a lot over the past few decades, but the original models are still held in fond regard. Your tour takes place in one of these much-loved originals – a vintage convertible 2CV.Avoiding the well-trodden sites of the city center, your tour focuses on the city’s hidden gems. Discover the chic delights of Place Vendôme, the elegant square lined with boutiques, jewelers and ritzy hotels. Swing past Kiosque des Noctambules, a contemporary piece of street art by French artist Jean-Michel Othniel, and then stop for photos by Stravinsky Fountain. The water feature is embellished with colorful sculptures that are said to represent running water.Visit the neighborhood of Le Marais to see Place du Marché Sainte-Catherine, a peaceful square, and learn about the area’s buskers and artists from your guide. Other notable attractions around Le Marais include Hôtel de Sully and Hôtel de Sens, two lavish private mansions. After 1.5 hours exploring the city, finish your 2CV tour with a drop-off near Opera Garnier or at your central Paris hotel.Please note: 2CVs are small compared to modern vehicles, so with comfort in mind, bookings are only accepted for three people per car, with one driver assigned per trio. Should your group be larger, no worries! Up to nine people can book this private tour, and each group of three ride in a separate car while traveling together in a convoy.
