Tour EiffelHmmm….Paris. Who doesn’t want to visit it?

When you go to Paris, there are some great Paris tours you can take part in.

Versailles offers a tour of a musical fountain, or the Hall of Mirrors (state apartments), Versailles Palace and, of course, Chatres, which is the centerpiece of their Christianity.

If you would like to take Paris tours that keep you inside of Paris, you can take Paris tours that include the Paris l’Open Tour which takes you on an exploration of all Paris encompasses, historically, romantically and fashionably. There also tours that go through Champs Elysees, the Grande Louvre Museum and the Eiffel Tower. If these aren’t enough to whet your appetite, then you can always find Paris tours that take you to see the “real” Paris, such as the Paris tours that will take you to the Montmartre and the flea market.
