Important information

What you should know

  • Please check your email the day before the tour for important information
  • Please note that the number of attractions depends on the option selected.
  • Skip-the-line tickets to Arc de Triomphe are reserved for a specific time slot so it’s important to arrive at the meeting point on time. You can skip the line at the ticket office but due to large crowds there may be a short queue to get in. There are mandatory security checks. Most of the Arc de Triomphe is accessible by lifts, but you have to climb 40 steps to get to the observation deck.
  • Guided tours inside the churches during mass and special events (such as scheduled concerts) are limited, therefore the guide may provide all information outside.
  • The 3,5 and 5,5-hour options include an estimated 1,5-hour transfer between the meeting point and the accommodation address provided when booking. Please note that the transfer time quoted is for information purposes only and the exact schedule will depend on the distance and traffic.
  • We will arrange private transfers in a standard car (sedan) for groups of 1-4 people, and in a larger van or minibus for groups of 5 people and more. If you’re traveling in a smaller group but want to travel in a more spacious car, we recommend booking a 5-people tour to take advantage of a larger vehicle.
    In Arc de Triomphe, 1 licensed guide can show a group of 1-5 people, so the price of the tour will be higher if you need more than 1 guide.
