Our tour was guided by Arthur and he was outstanding. He took us through some very interesting parts of Paris that we had not been exposed to. He was very knowledgable and engaging with the group. It was a fun way to spend a morning in Paris. I would do this tour again. Only complaint is there are a lot of areas under construction in the summer....which you have to navigate through, otherwise worthwhile if you want to see more of the city.
We were extremely happy with the Tour , our guide , Arthur , was an absolute gem , engaging , polite and drew our group of 7 together , he is , I think , a true asset to this business , I'm sure he could have an excellent future in the Tour Guide business if that is what he wishes to do . The Macaroon stop and cheese tasting was fantastic , it was a very quick 3 hours , we would've done it again !! .
This tour was great! We did this on our very last day before leaving this beautiful city... We have been to Paris twice before and so glad we did this tour as we really did learn and see some of the secret sites and hidden gems. Our tour guide was Arthur, who was very informative and passionate about Pairs, which made this tour more enjoyable. He has inspired us to do a walking tour in other cities we visit from now on... Thanks Arthur!

This tour was a really good introduction to Paris so I would recommend that you do it on your first day. Our guide was very knowledgeable, charming and flexible. When I asked her if we could see the ancient arcades of Paris she went out of her way to show us three.
This tour was fantastic, and our guide Tim made it all the better. His knowledge and sense of humour made it so much more interesting. Our 10 year old daughter was the only child on the tour and he interacted with her constantly. The macarons were delicious as was the generous cheese tasting. Would highly recommend this tour.
Exceptional tour. Arthur was a wonderful guide. Visited parts of Paris we wouldn't have seen otherwise.
I took this tour the day before my sister and I left for the states after staying in Paris for one week. What a way to end our trip. This tour made me forget all about the hot weather that had put a damper on many of the Paris highlights I had wanted to see. Arthur was pure delight. Engaging, fun, informative and relaxed. He was willing to answer any questions I had no matter what it pertained to. The shop where we stopped for macaroons was so beautiful and staff made us feel so welcomed. Lunch was so delicious and visually stunning. How fun sharing stories and getting to know the other group members during that stop. Arthur made us all feel a part of the group. I probably will not return to Paris but should I travel elsewhere I will definitely see if tours by the local tour company are available. Arthur was an excellent representative for the company. . Much success to him in his future teaching and directing opportunities. -Marilynn
Our guide was fantastic! Relaxed and informative. Yes we did explore area's away from the tourists. Stayed in the area well after our tour had ended for lunch and shopping. I would recommend the walking tour to everyone.
It was wonderful to explore the hiddengems of small hidden gardens and ally ways, most informative, excellent guide.
A must do when on Paris. An excellent look at the hidden secrets of Paris. Arthur was an a great guide.
Tim was an excellent guide. The tour lasted nearly 4 hours and met all our expectations.
Our tour guide was perfect and the food divine. It was a perfect tour for someone that has already been to Paris and wants to see some of the off the beaten path streets, or someone that just wanted to begin with more of a mini view of this fabulous city and graduate to the more touristy sites.
This was a really special tour. This was our last day and even though the weather was cloudy an little rainy we had a great group and a wonderful guide, Alix. She is extremely knowledgeable and a great raconteur. We explored many streets that wew ould never have found on our own and loved the stop at the chocolate shop and the bistro for some cheese and wine.
A very good tour with a very personable guide. Timoté guided us through a variety of places from the well known to the hidden gems mentioned in the name of the tour. I was impressed by the way he waited for people and included everyone as part of the group. The breaks that we had for macaron cheese were timely and appreciated. The cheese tasting was a highlight, taking place in a busy street with 4 generous tastings of different cheeses with bread. Recommend this tour.
Amazing - Fantastic Guide, Urban Adventures is terrific - enjoyed this more than 'I can say - saw and learned so much , that we would never have discovered on our own!
Tour was given to us by our daughter as a present. It was truly worthwhile and very informative. The guide was excellent.
We had already been in Paris for 6 days and thought we had been pretty much everywhere but we had an excellent guide. She took us to places we had never been and would never have been able to find on our own. All different types of neighborhoods were included.We stopped at a cafe for cheese and drinks and she spent closer to 4 hours with us after we only paid for 3. She was very charming and spoke excellent English. We learned a lot and enjoyed it very much!
We booked the 3-hour Secret Paris Walking Tour with Viatours, which is handled locally by Urban Adventures. It was a great way to begin our stay in Paris. Tour leader Tim was extremely knowledgeable and lots of fun. We saw some streets and shops Im sure we would never have discovered on our own. Got some good insider tips, too, which we used to our advantage for the remainder of our visit. The group size was ideal 10 people and our stop at the cheese shop was more than a just a tasting learned some interesting things about French cheeses.
Loved this trip! Our guide was really knowledgeable full of little facts which you would never even know. The cheese at the end is plenty! Very delicious and fast. If your up for a stroll and to leant about the Paris history this is for you :)
Absolutely excellent. Excellent guide and things to see. Would have loved more time to browse and perhaps shop in some of the passages.
We absolutely loved this tour. All the little interesting trivia bits that were shared were so interesting. This tour gives you a behind the scenes tour that allows you to feel personally connected to Paris. The food was great and our guide was delightful!
