Which is the coolest sightseeing tour in Paris? The answer is simple: a sightseeing tour in a 2CV with chauffeur. I discovered it on April 12, 2014 and was totally overwhelmed by it . If you’re ever looking for a special gift for your parents or friends, book one of these tours for them. It’s truly an unforgettable experience.
What is a 2CV? A 2CV is a French oldtimer car. The CitroÃ«n 2CV (2 chevaux means 2 horses in English) was an economy car produced by CitroÃ«n, a French car manufacturer, between 1948 and 1990. The 2CV was innovative and technologically advanced.
We enjoyed our sightseeing tour in a wine-red 2CV on a sunny spring day. I had the chance to sit next to Teresa, our driver and guide. She was the funniest guide I’ve ever met in my life: full of energy and joie de vivre. The young Italian came to Paris to study French after finishing her studies in Italy. She drove us around Paris and stopped a few times so that we could take pictures. She also told us some very interesting historic and architectural facts on the City of Love.
We were a real tourist attraction. Tourists were fascinated by the old car and started pointing at it and taking pictures.
