2-hour tour. For children aged 6-12. €270 flat rate for families of 6 or fewer.
Paris is teeming with stories to discover if you know where to look. On this fun-filled activity walk, your family and your private guide will travel through time, from the home of France’s greatest storyteller, Victor Hugo, to the once-royal neighborhood church featured in one of the writer’s novels. As you explore these and other sites in the magnificent Marais neighborhood, you’ll be solving riddles at a Renaissance mansion, finding mason marks on a medieval wall, and uncovering secret traces of France’s famed Revolutionaries. These activities give children a hands-on, interactive opportunity to learn about the city’s history directly from its renowned monuments. This program is accompanied by an educational booklet as well as a souvenir for your family.
Note to Parents: detailed information about this meeting plan will be emailed to you with confirmation of reservation.
