Safety first during a driving tour

Distractions are shown to compromise the safety of the passengers, pedestrians, and people in other vehicles.

  • Your driver does not have anything else to do than DRIVING

According to the National Highway Traffic Administration – branch of the US Transportation Department, driver distractions are the leading cause of most vehicle crashes and near-crashes. Thus, having both a private driver AND a private guide allows the driver to pay fully attention on driving tasks.

Distraction is a human habit, but there are a lot of ways to control it. The first, and most effective, is to ensure that your driver does not have anything else to do in the car than DRIVING, PARKING and ADAPTING to the different stops.

  • In our tours the private driver will NEVER be a guide

PARIS BY EMY offers private driver only with personalized itinerary for friendly budget. In addition, certain driving agencies are social dumping when they use a driver who is both a guide while putting safety at stake. A driver is a driver and a guide is a guide.

Walking Tour or Driving Tours ?

When deciding between a private walking tour and a private driving tour of Paris, several factors should be taken into account such as your budget but also :

  • Personal Preferences: Consider your preferences for exploration. Are you more drawn to leisurely strolls through charming neighborhoods or the convenience of covering more ground ?
  • Time Constraints: Evaluate the duration of your visit to Paris and the amount of time you have available for sightseeing. Walking tours may offer a more leisurely pace

Advantages of Private Car Service

Comfort and Convenience

One of the primary benefits of opting for a private driving tour of Paris is the comfort and convenience it provides. Traveling in a private vehicle allows you to navigate the city with ease, avoiding the hassle of public transportation or navigating crowded streets on foot. With air-conditioned comfort and ample legroom, you can relax and enjoy the sights without worrying about fatigue or discomfort.

Covering More Ground

Unlike walking tours, private driving tours offer the advantage of covering a larger area of the city in a shorter amount of time. With a knowledgeable driver behind the wheel, you can visit multiple landmarks and neighborhoods without the constraints of physical exertion. This is particularly advantageous for travelers with limited time who want to maximize their sightseeing opportunities without feeling rushed.

Accessibility for Those with Mobility Issues

For travelers with mobility issues or disabilities, private driving tours offer a convenient and accessible way to explore Paris. With door-to-door service and wheelchair-accessible vehicles available, everyone can enjoy the beauty and charm of the city without limitations. This inclusivity ensures that all travelers can experience the magic of Paris firsthand, regardless of their physical abilities.

Disadvantages of Private Driving Tours

Less Intimate Experience

While private driving tours offer comfort and convenience, they may lack the intimate experience of walking through the streets of Paris. Sitting inside a vehicle can create a barrier between you and the city, limiting opportunities for spontaneous interactions with locals and immersive cultural experiences. If you value authentic connections and up-close encounters, a walking tour may be more suitable for your preferences.

Limited Interaction with Locals

Exploring Paris by car may also result in limited interaction with locals, as you’re confined to the vehicle for the majority of the tour. Unlike walking tours where you can engage with shop owners, street performers, and residents along the way, private driving tours often keep you distanced from the vibrant pulse of the city. While your guide can offer valuable insights and commentary, the opportunity for genuine interactions with Parisians may be somewhat restricted.

Private Driving Tour

We do not recommend to visit a museum such a big as the Louvre during a driving private tour because you do not want to pay a driver to stay inside the car while you are visiting a museum for at least 2 hours. The investment of hiring a private driver, with or without guide, is better cushioned for a full customized driving tour accross Paris with brief stops, hop on and hop off.

However, you may choose high services and convenience by focusing on quality over quantity, depending on your budget. However, making longer stop to visit landmarks or not so touristy sites is much more wiser. PARIS BY EMY can book tickets for a specific day and time frame according to your itinerary.

Luxury Private Driver Paris Professionalism

The VTC or large discount driver drives people in so-called luxury touring vehicles as part of their trips. To be a VTC private driver, you must hold a professional VTC card that must be on the windshield of his/her vehicle. It is exactly the same for licensed guides, they must have a professional card.

The best and historical private luxury touring company in France is Chabé. Visionary, Maurice Chabé, returning from the Great War, decided to serve the clientele of Parisian Palaces during the Roaring Twenties. Building on his father’s experience who owned a few cabs, he bought his first car and drove it himself in 1921. Chabé is now present in 13 cities in Europe and offers its services in 100 countries. In addition, the Maurice Chabé Academy has supported since 2008 learners in the profession of driver and holders of a professional card that must be on the vehicle’s windshield.

Luxury chauffeur-driven cars must have an engine with a power greater than 88kw (i.e. 120 horsepower), have between 4 and 9 seats, be more than 4.5 meters long, be less than 6 years old and offer comfort and “standing” interior fittings. Be careful of unscrupulous companies that offer a private driver who is a guide at the same time or would give you insights. For safety reasons, it is mandatory that drivers are only driving. Some companies also display fake reviews thanks to agencies providing them with a high volume of positive feedback for a fee, be aware of that.

Zero-tolerance approach to labor exploitation

Labour exploitation is the abuse of people in the workplace for profit such as

  • Having wages and paperwork being controlled by another person
  • Being forced to work long hours without breaks
  • Being subjected to poor workplace health and safety…

We expect the same high standards from all of business partners.
