i've been living in paris for a few months now, but never really had the chance to discover and understand the city from the perspective of a real parisian. it was indeed a lovely afternoon exploring the left bank of paris with our guide, alix, who's very knowledgeable about the french history which helps to put her explanations into a more meaningful context about the architecture, culture, etc. during the relaxing tour. definitely a worthwhile short excursion!
An unexpexed change of plan anniversary of Charlie Hebdo resulted in a change of route to the south of the city. Change was handled efficiently by Viator staff and we were happy with the new route. Excellent tour, friendly and informed briefing by guide. Very happy with event.
Doing what: Heart of Paris Bike Tour
Missed opportunity for an uplifting walk through Paris as it should be viewed - bathed in golden light! Granted it was pouring, but guide just wasn't into it, or didn't have the background/enthusiasm to connect buildings passed and referenced to their import or significance. Value was in taking a walk to get a geographic grounding for further exploration!

The first portion of the tour was good as we saw some major sites and got some explanation on them. The second half wasn't as interesting, we ended up just walking around the streets of the neighborhood, the guide pointed out a few things, the main one I remember were two restaurants that he said were famous, but were expensive and not that great. I guess I expected more things to be pointed out to us in the neighborhood, like actually good restaurants, cafes, or other places we could get a snack or a treat. In the end I felt like we just followed some guy around a neighborhood. He did give a good dinner recommendation at the end when we asked for one.

Our guide Alix was charming and delightful. She was able to put everything we were seeing around us into the context of the history of Paris, so that we felt we were gaining a much greater understanding of the city. More fun though was the charcuterie tasting with wine! and the extremely competitive petanque. If only the federation rep had been on our team! A very enjoyable afternoon.
Loved it. A great way to see Paris like a Parisian. Beautiful. The back streets, the history. The guide, Arthur, was very knowledgeable and nice. Answered all questions and didn't worry about the time as much. Really made us enjoy our tour.
Pétanque was really fun and the 'charcuterie' was really delicious. Arthur took pictures of us playing Pétanque. A must do tour. To go behind the scenes of Paris.
Great tour, our guide Timothee was very informative. The group was 6 people and that was really good. We met some lovely people and got to see some areas of Paris that we wouldn't have with this tour.
Fabulous - our guide Arthur was fantastic. Took us to parts of Paris I had not seen on previous visits. Don't go to Paris without booking this tour! Thanks Arthur - his knowledge was endless.

This is a must see tour, our lovely guide Arthur, he was so good, knew his stuff, we thoroughly enjoyed his knowledge and I do not hesitate to recommend anyone to do this especially lucky if you get Arthur. He goes over time....
So glad I did this tour. Was great to meander through the backstreets and small lanes of Paris and discover things which I would never have found by myself. Our guide Alix was delightful. Despite there only being two of us in the group, she was still able make it interesting, informative and fun. Thoroughly enjoyed our charcuterie and wine tasting and our exciting game of petanque, which we played in a fantastic location! Would definitely recommend this tour.
Alix led an informative and enjoyable walk around the Latin quarter and then after our refreshments taught our little group to paly petanque. The girls were victorious! We had a great afternoon.
A great experience strolling through the streets of this historical district with our tour guide Alix, who was fun, engaging, informative and patient with our many questions. Got to see the Sorbonne, a beautiful city garden built by the Marie deMedici, Notre Dame, the old streets where leaders of the revolution lived, the hotel where Jim Morrison died, and sampled good French food and wine. An overall excellent tour experience with a well-trained guide.
Our guide was fantastic! Very engaging and more than willing to show us some extras such as the ancient city walls in a car park and with a great command of English. He was very knowledgeable and easy to understand and converse with. The charcuterie we experienced was amazing! With just 6 people our game of boules was so much fun. I would highly recommend this tour with this guide from Urban Adventures.
