Paris Walking Tour: Secret Sites and Hidden Gems

Secret Paris: Enjoy a cheese tasting session at a Parisian market

Meet your guide by Place de la Concorde in central Paris, and then set off on your 3-hour walking tour, exploring the grand boulevards around the 8th arrondissement. Luxury and elegance abound in the area, and as you walk your guide will point out examples of beautiful Belle Époque architecture.

Stop at a renowned food shop to sample one of the capital’s finest macaroons – mini-meringues sandwiched together with cream. The brightly colored, melt-in-the-mouth treats are ubiquitous around France, and the Parisian shops that sell them hold a prestigious reputation around the world.

Continue walking to the Louvre Museum, an iconic building home to some of the world’s most celebrated art. Amble through an arcade that offers a glimpse into the famous gallery, and then relax in the surrounding gardens as your guide regales you with tales about Paris’ art and culture.

Head to a lively Parisian market to indulge in one of the country’s popular gastronomic pleasures: cheese! Meet some of the friendly traders and sample their wares, trying crumbling chunks of pungent Roquefort or slivers of Brie. If you want to buy some cheese, spend some time browsing the stores at leisure.

Finally, take a stroll to Le Marais, a historical neighborhood full of trendy cafes and vintage boutiques – all exuding bohemian charm. Wander through tucked away Arcades, hidden streets that even locals don't know about and narrow streets a vivid testimony of Paris' rich medieval history. Finish the tour in the forecourt of Paris’ contemporary art gallery: the Pompidou centre, an incredible example of modern architecture in the heart of medieval Paris. A fitting finale to this revealing tour of Paris’ best kept secrets!

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Alex was amazing--she was patient and flexible. The weather turned nasty and she made the most of it by ducking into a cute cafe for coffee and pastry. When weather cleared we continued. We were not rushed in fact she spent an extra hour with us. The cheese tasting (we added wine :) was the highlight

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Our guide Timmothy was extremely knowledgeable and seeing Paris neighborhoods plus the champagne/cheese tasting was a lot of fun.
