Curator’s statement

Discovering Paris through the eyes of a family is a cherished experience. Paris, often celebrated for its romance, also holds a special place for families with kids. The more I work with families, the more I understand the importance of creating moments that resonate with both young adventurers and grown-ups. From the wonder in their eyes as they spot the Eiffel Tower to the joy of embarking on a treasure hunt through the Louvre, this itinerary is a tribute to the magic Paris brings to families. With its world-class museums, delectable cuisine and iconic landmarks, Paris is a canvas where families paint their own stories of laughter, discovery and love that will be treasured for a lifetime.

Day 1: A grand welcome to Paris

Bonjour and welcome to the city of lights, laughter and endless adventures! Your Parisian escapade begins with a special touch as your family steps off the plane. Waiting for you is a luxurious Mercedes and a friendly English-speaking chauffeur who can't wait to whisk you away in comfort and style. From the airport to your hotel, every moment will be filled with excitement and anticipation.

Want to add a dash of sparkle to your arrival? Opt for the Meet & Greet option, where your family can breeze through security and immigration with a helping hand. Your luggage will be well taken care of, leaving you free to focus on the joy of being together.

Check in at the hotel and have a good rest before starting your Parisian adventure. As the sun starts to set, get ready for a magical experience along the Seine River. Imagine gliding along the water on a private Venetian boat, with the whole family enjoying a 2.5-hour cruise. And guess what? A delicious 3-course dinner, complete with drinks and even Champagne (for the grown-ups), is part of the enchantment. To make this moment even more memorable, a talented photographer can capture your smiles against the backdrop of the shimmering Eiffel Tower.

Day 2: Art, history and smiles

Wake up to a day filled with art, history and the promise of adventure. Begin your morning at the magnificent Louvre Museum, where you'll journey into a world of wonder. Beat the crowds and dive into an exciting treasure hunt led by a friendly guide. Seek out treasures like the famous Mona Lisa and the elegant Venus de Milo, all while creating special memories as a family.

Lunchtime is a treat, whether it's at the iconic Angelina or another wonderful cafe nearby. Refuel and get ready for more fun.

The afternoon offers a choice of exciting activities. Step back in time on a medieval Paris-guided walk, where stories of knights, dames and intriguing characters of old come to life. Or, if you're fans of "Emily in Paris," embark on a delightful adventure tracing the steps of the show's characters. Engage in games and discussions that bring French culture to life, while a professional photographer captures the joy of your journey.

Day 3: Enchanting Versailles - a day fit for royalty

Expand your adventure with a day trip to the Palace of Versailles, a realm of opulence and history. Accompanied by a private guide, delve into the Palace, exploring the King’s State Apartments and the breathtaking Hall of Mirrors. To engage the young ones, a special game awaits them, keeping them enchanted throughout the tour.

Continue your day in Versailles immersing your family in a captivating etiquette class for kids. A savoir-faire specialist will introduce your children to the art of French table manners, unveiling the secrets of elegant dining. Where better than Versailles, the cradle of Etiquette, to embark on a journey of refinement, uncovering the origins and fundamental rules of lifestyle, elegance and the art of entertaining in the quintessential French manner?

Day 4: Tastes, wonders and farewell for now

Your last day in Paris is a celebration of tastes and wonders. Embark on a culinary adventure in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a charming neighborhood that's a haven for foodies. Your kids will explore a world of flavors with cheese, charcuterie, pastries and chocolate. Your private food guide will share stories and insights, making this experience not just delicious but also educational and fun.

If you're yearning for more art and discovery, consider visiting the Musee d'Orsay or the Centre Pompidou, where creativity knows no bounds.

As your adventure reaches its heartwarming conclusion, bid adieu to Paris, carrying with you cherished memories and the promise of future explorations. As you leave for now, remember to do it the French way – à très bientôt!
