Why Travellers Choose This Tour

If you've been to Paris before and want to see more of the city away from the main attractions, this is the tour for you! You can let your guide drive you away from the well-worn tourist paths to see what this city really has to offer among the cobbled alleyways and hidden squares.
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.

We had an excellent time with our guide Kevin as he drove us around both the beaten and unbeaten tracks of Paris. He was engaging, informative and professional. The 2CV is a great little car that can go virtually anywhere, even along the banks of the Seine. We'll take this trip the next time we're in Paris. The company 4 roues sous 1 parapluie was also excellent with prompt communication and patience as I inexplicably had difficulties figuring out the address of where we were staying. Simply a first rate experience!

This was amazing and a wonderful way to see Paris and learn lots of new facts. Our guide was very informative and great fun. I could not recommend this trip more .... fantastic way to spend the morning.

Very disappointed! Our guide was hard to understand, as he had a heavy accent and he did not understand our questions at all. He was enthusiastic and LOVED driving the car, but he took us to the same secret places that we already knew about. At the end he had us fill out an evaluation form and of course, with him watching us fill it ou,t we gave him all excellent. He was a nice guy, but we rarely got out of the car and asking him where we were so we could return later, was impossible. As he did not really know what we were asking. He knew his script but actual communication was not there. Expensive and we left thinking we gained nothing

We had an amazing time and Our guide, Kevin, was really great and very informative ! We saw a lot of parts of Paris that we had never seen before and what a unique way to view it through the roof of a 2CV. A truly Parisien experience!

Simply the best tour my two friends and I did in Paris!
Our guide was entertaining, very knowledgable and we really did see sights we would never have found otherwise!
The soft top car was such a fun way to see Paris and everywhere we went people pointed and took pics.
Huge fun and highly recommended.

A fantastic and different way to see Paris. Our tour guide Marion was very knowledgable and took us to hidden sights we would never have found on our own. Our favourite was the view between a row of houses of one of the turrets of Notre-Dame. The 2CV was comfortable and we were able to have the roof down most of the time despite the rainy weather.

Best ever we hit all the major places and even went down a tiny rue that no other car could fit into. We saw almost everything in an hour and a half. Our tour guide Kevin was great. The back seat had no seat belts though.
