Combi Paris Story

Fab et Gwladys have been driving people around Paris for years as private chauffeurs. They realised that tourists were unhappy with boring bus rides and run of the mill tours. As longtime combi van admirers, they decided to launch a Combi Paris Tours!

Our type 2 Combi (also know as 'Bus' in the U.S. or 'camper' in the U.K.) is famous as the forerunner of the modern cargo and passenger vans.

Paris is actually quite small. 2 million 200 thousand people live within the city walls. But if you include the suburbs there are around 12 million people living around our beautiful city.

Rebuilding the first combi van

The first Combi Paris tour bus was bought in a rather run down state. The engine and mechanics were however top notch. It took 3 months and a lot of love and attention to bring it back to pristine condition. We decided on the tourquoise blue half colour as it was one of the most popular and original colours used. The interior was completely replaced and we added the sunroof. There were no sunroofs in the factory released combis so we had to use modified combi plans.
