What You Can Expect
The tour and guide were both very informative - it was nice to see sights and learn of things that the average tourist wouldn't. I really enjoyed it!
This tour was Great! Tim was a great guide and very knowledgable. It was unfotunately bad weather but we still managed to see everything we had planned and enjoyed eating at various stops during our tour. I would highly recommend this especially on a first trip to Paris.
Guide could not have been better. She was terrific. Very knowledgable and understandable
Excellent 3-4 h wandering the local streets beyond the more famous squares and places in the Latin Quarter. Arthur was an engaging and interesting host, and the pitstops in a bakery and a small Spanish restaurant were excellent and delicious. Good value and not too tiring because we walked at a good pace and paused for short periods. One of the more memorable and ancient spots was deep in a Parisian carpark! Now that is off the beaten track...

Our tour was changed the day before to a different walking tour, so I was a little concerned. However, the tour was fabulous! Our guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable and lots of fun. I could not imagine a tour being any better in any way. I have already recommended it to anyone who is ever in Paris. Also, the tour staff was very good about contacting me and following up. We were extremely happy with the whole experience. Thanks Alex for a wonderful tour! It was the highlight of our trip.
Timothe was an amazing and fun tour guide. We were a group of 3. I had fun learning about the area and got to know the couple I was touring with. The charcuterie tasting was amazing and we had fun learning to play Pantique. The girls beat the guys! I highly recommend this tour.
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!
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.
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.
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.
