Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour lets you experience Paris like a local with a game of Pétanque and, of course, cheese and wine! You’ll also discover Paris’ quirkier side while exploring two of its best bohemian neighborhoods.
Delve into Paris’s famously artistic quarters on a small-group walking tour. Make your way to the Pantheon in the afternoon to meet your knowledgeable guide, and enjoy a short stroll to the charming neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in the city’s 6th arrondissement. Admire cafés, bookstores and unique storefronts as your guide shares stories of the famous musicians, poets and artists who called the area home throughout the decades.

Stop in at a charming local café and enjoy an assiette de charcuterie — a favorite Parisian lunch featuring an assortment of artisan cheeses, meats and pâtés. Purchase a glass of wine to accompany your meal if you like. 

Continue on to the pleasant Place Dauphine — the oldest Square in Paris. Take part in a round of pétanque, a ball game favored throughout France in which opposing teams try to toss metal balls closest to a wooden marker. Think of it as a cross between horseshoe and bocce ball. Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine as you learn the rules and techniques from your guide.

Next, stroll through Paris’ Latin Quarter and peruse the titles at the city’s first English bookstore. Your 3.5-hour tour concludes at the famed Notre Dame Cathedral, where you can continue exploring on your own.

I loved this tour. We stopped for a dessert at a pastry shop that had the France colors on the awning which is a sign of esteem in Paris. Wonderful treat. I would have liked to sit to enjoy it though along with some water. I also was not aware the tour would stop at a different spot than it started which caused a little stress for me a directionally challenged person but I did find my way.

We spend a wonderful 2.5 hours with Raphael on a terrific walking tour of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Latin Quarter districts. Raphael was exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about the information he conveyed to us. Many interesting stories and observations made for great afternoon and was a wonderful way for us to spend our last afternoon in Paris!

Very worthwhile tour of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter. My tour guide, Arthur, went out of his way to make this an extensive review of the neighborhood. He was both friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paris.

My husband and I were lucky enough to get a tour guide to ourselves. Tim was great - a wealth of information and an incredibly nice guy to spend the afternoon with. We loved being able to walk the street of Paris, and learn more about the city's incredible history. And ending the tour with bread, cheese, pastis and petonque was perfect.

Rafael was a good tour guide. He provided a lot of information about the areas we visited and we all had a very interesting conversation with him. The charcuterie sample platter was good too. We did not play a game of petanque, so this should be removed from the description of the tour.
