Discovering Paris isn’t simply about climbing up the Eiffel Tower, or strolling down the Avenue des Champs-Elysées.
With the Cultival agency and its alternative cultural tours, you’ll venture off the beaten track. Alone, with friends or family, explore behind the scenes of more than 30 of the capital’s most beautiful monuments just like a VIP guest, or learn secrets about the favourite hangouts of real Parisians.

Historic events and little anecdotes

Enjoy a “Gourmet Escapade” at the Palais Garnier, with a light meal in the Grand Café, or glass of champagne at the Opéra Restaurant.
Explore the extraordinary covered passages, and discover a Gothic and romantic Paris on one of the many themed tours organised by the agency. Or live your dream of wandering through a museum as though you had it all to yourself!

After closing hours, L’Hôtel des Invalides opens just for you, with an unforgettable night tour.
Step inside institutions usually closed to the public, and watch the Republican Guard practice; experience the bustling atmosphere at the Rungis Market, where the greatest Parisian restaurants stock up, or sneak behind the scenes at the Galeries Lafayette, to immerse yourself in 120 years of the department store’s history.

Detectives at heart will also be able to solve the enigmas hidden within this mysterious city, some of which can be found in the heart of the Gare de Lyon, or the Montparnasse Cemetery.
