Black Paris Tours Calendar

Black Paris Tours now operate YEAR ROUND Monday-Saturday except during the winter months when we offer tours on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays!

French Holidays France ranks number four among countries with the most holidays, with a total of 36 holidays, including 25 statutory holidays and 11 public holidays.

A French holiday will include parades and festivities or a city that looks like a ghost town with most Paris residents out of town. Restaurants, major attractions and museums may be open on major holidays (check online), but you can count on stores and shops being closed (as most are on Sundays) and the Paris transportation system running on a slower holiday schedule.
