Touring Paris - Tour Guides/Tour Companies vs on your own

Jump to last reply

I have 5 full days to see Paris completely on my own. Do you recommend a one day or two day guide with a professional group and then leave three days on my own? How about 3 half day tours with two days to explore on my own? I already contacted one Paris guide but he never replied back. My ideal tour would have no more than 10-12 people and would give adequate time to absorb the sights and soak in the local flavor without feeling rushed.

How does one manage a visit to the Louvre to maximize the experience?

Is five days too short to consider a one day hosted winery tour? I would love to do that but of course would need a driver and some experts. Any suggestions?

I am particularly interested in the names of tour companies with whom I can reserve in advance.

Your input is greatly appreciated.
