Get a bird’s-eye view of the city of light by day or by night on a fancy helicopter ride. These tours may not be as pocket-friendly as a walking tour or a river cruise, but the experience you’ll have is worth treating yourself for. Most of the flights leave from Paris, fly over major landmarks such as that famous pointy structure, the glorious Seine and Notre Dame Cathedral, before whizzing off to the outskirts for a day out. Explore the Palace of Versailles or the seventeenth-century castle Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte (all entry fees included, of course) before enjoying some bubbly and heading back to the capital. Have a little look below to find a package that suits you.
