Notre Dame Cathedral is one of Paris’ top attractions, with a history dating back to the 12th century. On this guided visit, explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site cathedral inside and out, and gain insight into its Gothic architecture. With your guide to lead the way, see hidden details many visitors miss, hear the legend about the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and learn more about French history.

What to Expect
Make your way to Notre Dame Cathedral at the time chosen at checkout, and meet your guide near the cathedral to begin your tour.

First, explore the streets surrounding the cathedral—some of the first built in Paris. Admire the striking Gothic architecture from all angles, and listen as your guide points out hidden features high up the walls of this UNESCO–listed masterpiece.

As you explore, hear the tale about bell-ringer Quasimodo—the Hunchback of Notre Dame in Victor Hugo’s book—and consider if he was deserving of Esmerelda’s love.

Then, step inside the cathedral and discover treasures including the beautiful rose windows—through which the sun shines onto the stone floor.

When your time in Notre Dame Cathedral comes to an end, step outside to conclude your guided visit.

It is a very beautiful Cathedral they are in the middle of restoration but you can see the new clean up look and how much more work they have to go. I could not believe its free.

Very informative

Our guide was very good and spoke excellent English. Although I thought we would be fast tracked through the entrance, we weren't, you didn't have to wait long to get in. Whilst the tour was only an hour from start to finish, we learnt so...More

Dear customer, Thanks so much for your review and we're so glad to know that you had such a nice experience. In fact we'd like to know who was this guide, we're sure the person would love to hear that. Best regards,

I think taking this tour with an audio headset would have provided the same level of information and excitement. One of the few tours i've taken that i didn't feel was quite worth the cost. I almost rather wish i'd done it on my own...More
