The Citroen 2CV is an icon of the French motor industry. Built between 1948 and 1990 these beautiful cars have an instantly recognizable design that will get the people of Paris pointing as you're driven around by a beret-wearing chauffeur/guide on your sightseeing trip through the streets of Paris.
The Les Bateaux Parisiens is a classic glass-covered boat (including glass ceiling) with open walkway that cruises up and down the River Seine on a 1 hour sightseeing cruise. Setting sail from the foot of the Eiffel Tower the round-trip boat tour passes the iconic sights such as The Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, Notre Dame Cathedral, The French National Assembly, Pont Neuf, Les Invalides, Grand Palaic and more.
Learn about the sights you're passing on the river with audio commentary provided in 11 languages (English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, and Russian) via headsets.
