Overview
See a hidden side of Paris during a private tour of the city in a vintage Deux Chevaux, an iconic French 2CV convertible. Let your private guide lead you away from the city's most famous sights for a tour of off-beat Paris. Travel through the Marais district to see some of the historic mansions. Find some of Paris' notable street art. Pass the elegant Place Vendôme. Select a tour start time that fits with your travel schedule, and enjoy exploring another facet of Paris.
What to Expect
Meet your private guide for the day at either your hotel in central Paris or on avenue des Champs-Élysées and climb into the waiting vintage 2CV car. These somewhat odd-looking cars were first introduced in the mid-1940s as work vehicles for French farmers, and though the design changed quite a bit over the years the original cars have become much beloved in France and elsewhere.

Ease out into the city, taking in the sights from the passenger seat of your 2CV, as your private guide offers informative commentary about the city and (if you like) the car.

Pass up the more familiar sights of Paris for some of the city's lesser-known attractions. Drive past the lovely  Place Vendôme, an overlooked square surrounded by chic shops and jewelry stores. See a mural by French artist Jean-Michel Othniel, a piece of street art called Kiosque des Noctambules. Pause for a photo-op by the Stravinsky Fountain, decorated with sculptures that are supposed to mimic running water.

Drive through the bohemian Marais quarter to see Place du Marché Sainte-Catherine, another pretty and overlooked square, as well as two luxurious private homes – Hôtel de Sully and Hôtel de Sens. Listen as your guide tells you about the artists and street performers who work and live in Le Marais.

Your tour lasts roughly 1.5 hours, after which your guide will drive you back to your city center hotel or to the pick-up point near the Opera Garnier.

Please note: Citroen 2CVs are smaller than modern cars, so for the comfort of all travelers these tours are limited to three people per car (not including the driver). If your group is larger than three, that's no problem – this tour can be booked for groups as large as nine people, with each trio having its own car and driver and all cars traveling together in a convoy.

Hidden Places In Paris

Our driver Robert constructed a drive after we told he we had been on the Hop On Hop Off bus. Great fun and insights.

Enjoyable private tour

We booked the 2CV hidden secrets tour which we enjoyed very much. The 2CV is in absolute original condition (so very run down inside) but is a great way of seeing the backstreets of Paris. The strength of these tours really comes down to the...More

Small Citroen Tour of Paris

Saw some wonderful sights throughout Paris during a short tour, although the car was a little small and uncomfortable. OK for a short tour, but would not recommend for a 2 hour tour. Best to go with the bigger vintage cars.
