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

Now this Tour was aptly named and a bargain for the sights and the tour guide Tim/Timothy. Tim packed so much in with interesting bits of information and in a delightful manner. The cheese platter was an experience, not to be missed, and changed my view on cheesy flavours. Shame we don't seem to have some of these varieties easily obtainable back in Oz. Tim was very accommodating. Most enjoyable 10 stars May 2015

Great Tour. Wish we could have taken it the day we arrived. Tim was outstanding. Very knowledgeable. Be aware that the Cheese Shop is closed on Monday mornings if this is important to you.

Can't wait to find Tim's book.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour of lesser known sights and hidden streets. Having visited Paris several times before we had already been to the major tourist sights and we were looking for something a bit different - this met our requirements perfectly. Arthur, our guide, was a mine of fascinating information on the locations we visited and the people who live and work there - he made it come to life. In addition, he discussed culture and politics in a way that was fun as well as informative, giving a broader view of Parisienne/French life. Cannot recommend this tour highly enough, in particular Arthur who was friendly and engaging throughout.

It was really great. Arthur is a very personable and knowledgeable guide. Obviously a lot of walking, but I will remember it. Especially the old Embassy of Texas and the oldest house in Paris. Interesting things I never would have looked for on my own.

this was a spectacular find. Arthur was incredibly well informed, engaging, humorous, and took us on an incredible journey to parts of Paris I had never seen, despite having been in Paris more than a half-dozen times. Arthur is FANTASTIC! we would highly recommend him!

Our tour guide was super! The meeting place was easy to find. Our guide was a local and knew all of the fine history points. The stop at the bakery was super! I enjoyed touring the alley and passage ways, very nice. This tour is a great value.

Wonderful tour with lively and informative guide ... She was flexible and asked the group for input at times. She was knowledgable and friendly. The group was small. The food was excellent. Take this tour!

This tour was cancelled and we were put on a tour of the Latin Quarter instead. Arthur was our guide and he was wonderful. There were only 3 of us on the walking tour and he personalized it to what we wanted including a special dish with our wine tasting. Great experience...would definitely recommend.

We did this tour in September 2014, and certainly got to see places and things that don't rate a mention in the normal tourist literature, which greatly helped to extend our knowledge of Paris and its history. The guide was again, well suited to the particular tour, having good personal knowledge and experience of the areas visited. We would thoroughly recommend such a tour to anyone seeking that little extra knowledge about the city than one gets by just doing the big-ticket tourist attractions.

For one who is familiar with Paris, this is highly recommended. The guide was outstanding as well as charming. I loved all of the interesting sights that one might not usually take time to see or even in some cases know about. It was a small group and that made it even nicer for a walking tour. We stopped for typical Parisian refreshments and that was fun.

Alex was a fantastic tour guide! She showed us places that we'd likely never have found on our own. She's extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city! If you want to try something very different and off the beaten path, I would highly recommend this tour to anyone! It was a pleasure and having Alex guide us through these little streets made it memorable to say the least!

This tour was fantastic. There was a small group of seven (they take a max of 12) and although we stayed very close to the central tourist areas, we were shown where to find lots of hidden gems ... exactly what it said on the tin! Alix, our tour guide was superb, she was extremely friendly and very helpful and informative. The tour is very relaxed and casual which is exactly what you need on a walking tour. We had been to Paris quite a bit and saw a lot of new street, alleys, shops, markets, and not to spoil it ... gems! The macaroon and cheese tasting was great fun and we had time to chat with the group. Would highly recommend!

Fun tour! We saw the side of Paris that we hadn't seen before, and we even walked through streets very near to where we were staying, which we thought we knew and had walked countless times before. Our tour guide was fantastic, had loads of information and a great sense of humor. We saw interesting lanes, buildings, shops and alleyways, learned about the history of the areas and tasted yummy treats. We highly recommend this tour.

One of our best experiences! Arthur was terrific-so knowledgeable, energetic, warm, and fun. Walking with an expert is the way to go! The small group venue is very comfortable and affords many opportunities for questions and other interactions. The visits to the fabulous bakery and cheese tasting were icing on the cake. We would definitely opt for this tour if available in other cities we visit. Do it!
