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!

Our walking tour was excellent! Our guide, Alix, was very well informed and gave us many interesting facts on the history of Paris. The tour was a nice mixture of history, as well as fun facts. Of course, we loved stopping for sweet treats and cheese tasting! Alix extended our tour at least 30 minutes, the whole experience was everything thing we'd hoped for--I would highly recommend it.

Our guide, Adele, was a young gal who was born and raised in Paris so it was truly authentic and really a great walk. She offered lots of French history as we explored the more subtle gems in Paris. Well worth the money!

We really enjoyed doing this tour during our 9 day stay in Paris. Our guide Tim took us to places far away from the regular tour spots. He regalled us with stories, tales of adventure, and answered all our questions to the best of his ability.
