Self-guided experience

I hear you. You’re not the tour type of person. You have your own pace and prefer to shop and see Paris on your own with your own people. Why do you need a curated self-guided experience in Paris? I’ll tell you why. For $95 it buys you a stress-free day with no indecisions.

The Scenario

You come to Paris with big plans hoping to make the most of your holiday. Sightseeing, shopping, and eating are on your list. Now comes the research, reviews, subscribing to travel blogs, asking friends for recommendations…only to end up lost, showing up at the wrong times, waiting in long lines, and eating crappy food.  You’re starving, and the restaurant suggestion your pal gave you is across town and closes in 20 minutes. Ahh, this scene is all too familiar. Paris can, after all, be overwhelming.


La Cocaigne's self-guided experiences are designed based on your style, budget, interests, and eating habits. You get a solid plan to hit it hard when you visit The City of Lights. It’s like your best pal in your back pocket showing you where to shop, eat, score that handbag you’ve been coveting, and the good sights to share with your people back home.


The itinerary focusses on shopping, an attraction, breakfast (coffee), lunch, more shopping (because we’re human and it’s Paris after all), points of interest, a place for an aperitif to wind down the day, and a dinner suggestion too.

  • SGE is based on the assumption you can walk, climb stairs and stand on your feet for long periods of time (nobody said, exploring Paris was easy).

  • You will receive a questionnaire upon purchasing the SGE. Once received it's imperative you complete and return to LACOCAIGNE to start planning your stress-free day in Paris. Itineraries are delivered within 72 hours of the completed questionnaire.

It’s my desire to make our moment together exceptional. Once booked you’ll receive communication from me asking about your style, budget, dream list and anything else I need to know to knock your socks off. Dramatic, I know…but you get the idea.
