Essential Paris Accessible Guided Tour

Essential Paris 1The Left Bank was home to some of the greatest authors and artists in history: Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and more. 

 During this 2.5 hour accessible Paris guided tour, you’ll explore the Left Bank as well as the Ile de la Cité island in the middle of the Seine River, home to Notre Dame Cathedral.  The entire route is step-free, and the tour guide can push a manual wheelchair if needed.

Accessibility Description

I gave the Essential Paris Accessible Guided Tour a 5 Star Sage Accessibility Rating (our highest rating) because it involves a step-free tour route and the tour guide can assist pushing a manual wheelchair. 

 The tour route consists of fairly flat ground and has been designed to avoid cobblestones present in the Left Bank as much as possible.
