You are tired of traditional sightseeing and boring
walking tours?

Then this is the tour for you!

You will learn how to use the vintage Polaroid camera at the start of the tour. Then you will start exploring Paris in a small group. With the help of your guide you will be creating eight unique Polaroid souvenirs.

From the lively Bastille market to the famous Parisian Cafés to the stunning sight of the banks of the Seine River and Notre Dame, you’ll get to know the city from a different angle

After the tour you’ll be taking home Polaroids from your sightseeing adventure as a one of a kind souvenir. Unlike digital photos they are a piece of memory that you can physically show your friends and family and which will decorate your office desk, living room or fridge.

Walk down memory lane: Your Polaroids will always take you back on a journey to the fantastic experience you had.
