Paris is a city with secrets around every corner — and only those who know where to look will discover its delights!
At La Réserve Paris, the whole family can partake in the fun of uncovering the city’s most incredible sights through a selection of scavenger hunts, all of which can be personalized!
How it works? The guide will present each participant with a clue book containing dozens of riddles. Only by solving the riddles will participants progress through each stage—a challenge that might include taking a particular photo, finding out the answer to a location-specific question, completing a funny task, or tracking down a specific landmark.
An expert guide will help participants move through the steps, and each team will be awarded points for completing various tasks. The highest score will result in a special prize, with options including a chocolate mold of the Eiffel Tower and a pirate’s chest filled with chocolate coins and small souvenirs.
Guests can embark on a city-wide scavenger hunt that will include stops at some of Paris’s most major landmarks. Or they can opt for a scavenger hunt in Le Louvre, where the mission is to check and see if everything is where it should be.
Guests will wander through wings of the museum, passing masterpieces including the Mona Lisa, the Coronation of Napoleon, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, and the Venus de Milo.
For a fun day trip, there’s also a scavenger hunt in Versailles. The mission: to track down the code that General Lafayette needs to open the trunk that belonged to King Louis XVI. To do so, children will have to find a rainbow in the castle, a Venetian gondola in the gardens, and many other hidden secrets.
Scavenger hunts start at €650 ($697 USD as of 2/6/23) for a group of 2 to 4 people.
The flagship of La Réserve collection, La Réserve Paris is housed in a 19th-century building formerly owned by the family of the Duc of Morny (the step-brother of Emperor Napoleon III), just steps from the Champs-Élysées and the Grand Palais.
Sumptuous interiors are courtesy of French interior designer Jacques Garcia, and families can opt to stay in La Réserve Paris Apartments, a collection of 10 multi-bedroom flats in the 16th arrondissement.
Most come with views of the Eiffel Tower, as well as 24/7 butler service and exclusive Parisian experiences like a private visit to the studio of Yves Saint Laurent or a backstage tour of the Opéra Garnier.
