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.
This was a great experience. Arthur our guide was friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. As we walked at an easy pace around these areas we discussed past and current issues relating to Paris. We quickly felt like a group of friends gaining insights that regular tourist miss out on. We finished at a cafe having a drink with charcuterie. Thanks Arthur for a great afternoon and we highly recommend it to others.
Arthur was a terrific Tour Guide. Found the tour quick and interesting not boring at all.
One of the best tours of our trip. Timothee our guide was well spoken and seemed to enjoy his time relating all the history and interesting facts along the way. He really paid attention to each of us. The pace was by far the most easy to keep up with. It was so much fun, you really felt you spent the afternoon in part of Paris enjoying the sights, tastes, and local activities petanque game in park setting. Awesome life experience. Thanks
Wonderful!, Amazing guide! Loved every minute and saw and learned about so many things we could not have experienced on our own.
There were only three of us on this tour, so we had a really personal experience. Our guide, Tim was delightful and knowledgeable. I felt we got an authentic experience.
Our guide was highly knowledgeable about the area. His ability to speak and understand English impressed us! He was open to us asking to see certain places and made sure we had a good time. Very friendly and easy to be with! We would definately recommend this tour.
Arthur, our guide, was punctual, knowledgable and informative. Our needs were catered for extremely well.
What a great walking tour this was! Our guide Arthur was fabulous and gave us a real insight into this beautiful area of Paris. Finishing off with a drink, something to eat and the game of petanque was just great fun - absolutely loved it!
Very interesting. The guide Arthur was very knowledgeable a showed us hidden gems in Paris. Playing boules was great fun
Author the guide was FANTASTIC! What a great walking tour and experience!
A really authentic and interesting tour - one that gave us a good understanding of the Left Bank, and one which had depth as well as some lovely twists - given by a personable, engaging and informative tour guide. Really enjoyed the visit to the bar - for charcuterie and drinks - and the game of boules at the end; the setting was unpretentious and it capped what was an enjoyable afternoon.
my first time visiting Paris , and wanted to take this walk since i was staying in the Latin Quarter. I was very enjoyable , our guide met us promptly at 2pm and off we went , he was very imformative and you could tell he really knew a lot this area . We started at the Pantheon, then the university area, Luxembourg gardens, which was gorgeous, and then we stop to have a Charcuterie tasting, i was fun to sit for a while and get to know the other tourist in the group. After that we play a game of Petanque, it was really fun. We walked along the Seine and ended up at Notre Dame. All in all, i thought it was a great way to start my first day in Paris. i recommend this tour to anyone who really wants to get a feel of the Parisian lifestyle.
Had Arthur as a guide for this tour and as with the other tour, very knowledgeable and friendly. learned a lot along a well paced route, as well as how to play a new game. Informative, yet relaxing.
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!!
