Everyone should take this tour and learn to play petanque!!! Seriously this was a wonderful way to explore this part of Paris and it was a very fun afternoon! One of my favorite Paris experiences!!
This was such a fun tour. Not only was the tour guide (Arthur) very informative, but there was such a variety of environments covered. Small lanes loaded with history as well as large monuments too. The petanque game was also a lot of fun. (even if one of my throws ended up in the street). Definitely would recommend it.
I loved the tour because it was a small group and our tour guide, Arthur, tailored the tour to what the group wanted. Overall it was a great walk through the Latin Quarter and St. Germain.
Our guide, Bart, was so friendly, considerate and knowledgeable. Awesome tour. It started at the Place de la Concorde and ended in the Marais at the Pompidou. Along the way, we stopped at a shop and enjoyed picking out a delicious macaroon Later on in the walk we enjoyed sampling various cheeses with that wonderful French bread. Both are included in the price of the tour. The walk was well paced so older travelers can manage this three hour tour easily. We saw so many famous sights and many hidden gems we may have missed on our own. Do this tour.
Excellent tour. The guide was exceptionally good and gave information not just on what we were seeing but the culture of contemporary France. Food was good, pace was good.
Arthur was our guide, and what a great guy he is! It was pouring with rain when we all met up, but this did not stop us enjoying it despite the rain, and it did get better later on. Arthur told us all about the various landmarks in the city and the history of Paris. It was really interesting. The charcuterie stop in the pub was lovely, and we finished with the boules, which was very entertaining too. All in all a very enjoyable trip and a great start to our few days in Paris as it gave us such a good grounding about the city. Would definitely recommend.
Nicholas was a fantastic tour guide, provided us with interesting information about the places we visited, was efficient, fun, helpful and would make any tour quite unforgettable.
Tim was our guide. He did a great job giving us lots of very interesting information about the neighborhoods we were walking through. The stop for charcuterie tasting and wine was a highlight. provided a nice stop to chat with the other members of the group. Playing Petanque was great fun as well.
This tour was one of the best we did in all of our European tour. Our guide was excellent and obviously loved Paris. We had to shelter in a cafe as a sudden storm blew up but it just added to the experience. We stopped at another cafe to eat plates of charcuterie and drink wine. Then off to play bocce in a village square- more wine and laughter. This tour takes you through lots of hidden areas of Paris. Enjoy!!
It was a wonderful afternoon walking tour - we all learned so much and had fun drinking wine, eating charcuterie and playing Petanque. A PERFECT way to spend our first day in Paris!!
This was the perfect way to spend an afternoon in Paris. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Paris and playing petanque was a lot of fun. The other people on the tour were great company. Overall, this tour was one the highlights of my trip to Paris.
I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Tim, was great. You could tell he loved his city and was proud to share it with us. We discovered little gems that we would not have found (or thought to look for) on our own (the hotel where Jim Morrison was last seen and likely died, for example). We had a relaxing time at the café having charcuterie and the Pétanque game was a lot of fun -- I play Pétanque the same way I curl: through the house and gone :)
We were lucky to only have 6 people on our tour so it made it very personal. We were able to ask questions about things that we were interested in in a way that a larger group would have made difficult.
Had a great tour guide, Tim, who explained all of the history, stories, and tales about the sites we visited or passed by. The "game" was great as well as the little restaurant in the square.
A great tour! Alex was very knowledgable. It was great to see some of Paris by foot and stop in at places, rather than just whizing by on a bus. The game of pétanque was a great wait to spend an hour during the tour in a lovely spot you would miss if you didn't know of it.
