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.
What an amazing guide we had, his name is Arthur and I hope others will be lucky enough to have him as a guide as well. He is very well informed and was able to answer all our questions and showed us some amazing parts of the Latin Quarter we would have never have found by ourselves. Thank you Arthur.
We did this tour with a fun couple from Canada and we had a blast! Our tour guide, Tim, knows the city inside out and we relished the insider experience he provided us -- such as, showing us the old city walls in an underground parking garage, pointing out movie/literature/pop culture references throughout the Latin Quarter, chilling in the Luxemburg Park, and of course teaching us petanque as we sipped our pastis. It was an exhilarating tour and we enjoyed every bit. Merci Tim!
It was a very informative tour. The guide was very friendly and nice. Very knowledgeable. In summary, had a great time. Must do this tour if one is in Paris
Great way to spend a relaxing afternoon, learning about Paris away from the well known tourist attractions. Highly recommend
Arthur led a wonderful tour of the Saint-Germain-de-Pres and Latin Quarter neighborhoods. He shared a lot of knowledge about the role these neighborhoods played in different eras of French history, he led us to a wonderful bakery, and we closed with a snack at a fun charcuterie. We loved learning to play petanque at the end of the visit. I'd highly recommend this tour to friends!
Fabulous! Thorough and detailed but not boring. Well paced and the tasting breaks were perfect. Loved playing the local bowling game. If you want to feel like a Parisienne and not just a tourist, this is the best. Kudos to Urban Tours.
Very good walking tour that offers unique experience of living like a local. Highly recommended!
This is the way to see Paris! Our excellent guide, Alix, lead a small group 5 of us through St. Germain and the Latin Quarter seeing the Pantheon, Luxembourg Gardens, Medici Fountain, Theatre d'Europe, The Sorbonne and many other must sees in Paris. However what makes this tour great is the intimacy of the small group, the details provided by the guide and because you're not just walking you're stopping and experiencing the city through the eyes of a Parisian. There were details provided and not just questions answered but conversation about the history and culture. Excellent charcuterie, wine and a fun game of petanque topped it off. This tour was the highlight of my time in Europe... Absolutely and highly Recommended!!
This was an excellent and seriously entertaining tour. It operated as a very small group tour -- there were only 5 of us. The guide was well informed, engaging and entertaining. Also this was a tour of an area of Paris that tourists don't often get to. Further the bites to eat sweets, and then later some tapas at a Basque cafe were very nice. The Basque bowling game was fun as well.
The tour was longer than described -- but that meant there was more information and conversation -- definitely would recommend this tour -- even for those who have visited Paris before.
This is a wonderful and relaxing opportunity to get to know a part of Paris and its history. Tim, our guide was fantastic. The pace of the tour is relaxed and the depth is limited by your questions. By the time we finished I felt very much at home in this area. It was everything my wife and I could have imagined.
