This tour was amazing! Our tour guide was great. I would definitely do this again!
My husband and I started out trip to Paris with this wonderful full-day walking tour with the lovely Marie. I highly recommend doing this at the start of your trip if you can - it is a great way to learn the city before being on your own. Communication prior to the trip was great via email and the company put together a great itinerary of what we should see based on our preferences, time in Paris, activity level, and reservations we had for later in our trip. Marie as a guide was just fabulous! She gave us a massive tour and we saw everything we wanted to. It was great because it helped us get our bearings in the city so that we knew where we wanted to go back to on our own and Marie gave us the history and context to go along with it all. We walked through a number of areas in the city Place Vendome, Opera House, Les Halles, Place de le Concorde, Tuileries Jardin, Ile de la Cite, Saint Germain Du Pres, Univesite, Pantheon, saw lots of covered passageways as I especially wanted to see those, experienced Notre Dame with Marie's wonderful commentary, and wandered the grounds of the Louvre and the gardens of the Royal Palace. She even showed us how to work the metro system just in case we ever needed to use it!. The company had even booked Musee D'orsay tickets for us just in case we ended up there at the end of the day! I loved that Marie was flexible to change the plan for the day as the tour progressed, based on what we were enjoying the most. She also pointed out and recommended places we should go to after our tour and advised us of places to avoid or skip. I have to add that we did follow her recommendations later in the week and were very happy we did! I wish we could have taken her with us for the rest of our trip to Paris as I truly appreciated her sharing love for her Parisian home! We covered a LOT of ground on our tour because we are able and fit walkers, but a word to the wise - wear VERY comfortable walking shoes as you walk for hours - and if you aren't capable of walking for long periods or distances, don't expect to see everything we did. We were very happy and excited to do this extensive tour, but Marie says she also works with those who want more breaks and who like to go at a slower pace. So, they have a little something for everyone! Would highly recommend working with this tour company. From two very pleased tourists :
We had a relatively large group 7 consisting of elderly in age down to a second grader. Our informative guide Luc made sure everybody felt included in the tour and was at all times conscious of the physical limitations of my older family members. Partially because we were only in Paris for the day, travelling there on an early flight from London and having to return that same evening, we did not have a lot of time to explore the city. Tour organizers very helpfully instructed us on the proper train to take from Charles de Gaulle airport into the city, and the commute was effortless. Luc met us as planned and tailored a perfect walking tour of Notre Dame cathedral and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Perhaps most memorable for me was the lunch Luc arranged. He took us to a place that prepared a duck confit, which he also recommended, that was easily the best meal I had during the 10 days I was in London, Paris, and Dublin. It is also turned out to be perhaps one of the best meals I have ever had anywhere.
I would highly recommend this tour whether you plan to be in the city for days or hours as we were.
Astrid was amazing!!! Made my whole family and myself really fall in love with Paris. Her knowledge was endless, she was such a joy to be around and was able to adapt and customize our experience on the fly as she got to know us and our interests. I cannot recommend her or this tour highly enough. I have traveled extensively, and this was one of my favorite experiences.
Our tour guide Alex was fantastic. He met us at the hotel at 930 and showed us everything we wanted to see. He gave us the insider tour of Paris and also recommendations for the rest of our stay.

We had very charming guide that made the day fun and interesting for both my 15 and 12 year old. He even bought them some macarons at his favorite shop : As it was our first time in Paris, he took us to places that we would not have known about or would have taken weeks to read and research if I even knew what to look for. We had planned other activities on other days and I did fwd the itinerary to the company so that we would not cover the same areas and that worked out fabulously. There was a lot of walking but it was at our own pace and we were able to linger when and where we pleased. We rode the metro and bus and had a great lunch at a bistro that he recommended. It was a great way to start our week in Paris with an overview of the beautiful city, I highly recommend!

My wife and I truly enjoyed this tour, especially since we only had two days in Paris. Astrid was our personal guide and was outgoing, upbeat and very knowledgeable. We saw just about everything we wished to and at an unhurried pace. It was a full day for all of us. We would definitely recommend this tour and if you're lucky, to have Astrid guide. She saw us through town and revealed some memorable hidden gems here and there.
Alex was excellent! He showed us everything we wanted to see and was able to get a full day of site seeing and knowledge for us! To see everything would take months, if not years but we got a great 'taste' of everything a first timer would want to see. From the Arc de Triomphe to the Louvre to the Sainte Chapelle to the Pantheon....Through the different districts to see the Medieval parts of Paris to the WW1 and WW2 areas in Paris..History from 507 a.d. through the present, Alex showed and told us about history, museums, culture and life in Paris.
Had a great visit in Paris. Started our week in Paris with this tour to get familiar with the city. Our guide was super and our family had a great time in Paris. Learned and experienced so much!
Now that we are back from our trip we can not stop talking about our wonderful walking tour with our tour guide. We saw all the sights we wanted to see and even more along the way. Our guide was so knowledgeable, friendly, supportive of our time together. I would recommend this tour 100. I look forward to going back to Paris and discovering more of Paris!
Alex, our tour guide was awesome. He met us at our hotel and walked us to d'Orsay, Louvre, and Notre Dame. Our day was PERFECT. I highly recommend this tour early in your stay, so you can revisit your favorite spots.
ALEX WAS GREAT! We had such a fun day seeing the non tourist side of Paris! The tour was worth every penny!
My 3 daughters and I traveled to Paris for one day. We booked a private tour since we had to make the most of our day. The tour was absolutely amazing!!! Our tour guide Astrid was brilliant, kind, funny and oh man could she walk fast!!! We only had 7 hours and we covered so much! From Notre Dame to the Louvre to the oldest part of Paris, lunch in a garden, even the most amazing ice cream I've ever eaten. We walked and took the Metro. It is simply a day my daughters and I will never forget. The planning was simple and Astrid made the day perfect!!!
Marie Our guide is very helpful and she knows Paris very well. She will follow what we want and she did the best she can.
This was WONDERFUL! Our guide, Florent, customized a tour that allowed us to stop for macarons which is what my 12 year old daughter wanted more than anything and have crepes for lunch at a local spot, not a touristy destination which is what my 14 year old son wanted. Florent engaged my kids in conversation, and kept it interesting for the adults. It's a lot of walking, but because it's at your own pace, you can stop whenever you want. Florent even negotiated the price of a painting we wanted to buy along the river Seine! Such a great day.
It was a great day! Florant was a marvelous tour guide. He accommodated four old folks' needs. We simply ran out of energy and had to end the walk early. After seeing Notre Dame we had little interest in seeing other cathedrals.
Marion was very knowledgeable, sincere, and kind, and provided an outstanding tour. She made every effort to provide the experience that the client is wishing for and went above and beyond expectations.
Our tour guide was wonderful and planned as we went along to accommodate our visit. Excellent. would recommend this to anyone.
Our guide was Romain --- very knowledgeable --- made the trip fun and efficient.
This tour was wonderful. Our guide was very knowledgeable and energetic. He took us to things we would never have found on our own. All seven in our party gave him top ratings.
Manuel and Margot were both good and we all enjoyed our tour. Manuel is very knowledgeable about the history of the places he showed us. I totally recommend this trip.
Our tour guide gave us exactly what we wanted. She was friendly and out going. She was a young college student who was very knowledgeable on Paris. We were very happy with her. A true delight
Olek is an outstanding tour guide. We were interested in avoiding the tourist areas and seeing where the Parisians lived. Oleks knowledge of the city and its history was awesome! He showed us the non-touristy areas we wanted to see plus a few hidden gems. We highly recommend Olek.
What a superb day we had with Guillaume! I cannot recommend this tour more highly. It was chock full of wonderful things. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, informative and friendly. It was a lot of walking, but we also were able to take the metro and the bus, which my kids LOVED! We went off the beaten path and avoided the crowds, while still seeing some of the most popular sights in Paris. I give this tour the highest recommendation!
It seems pricey at first but the quality of tour we had was well worth the amount. Our guide Lucien was a fantastic, passionate and knowledgeable local with a Masters in French History. His love for Paris was infectious. This tour exceeded our expectations and made us more comfortable wandering the streets of Paris. We learnt additional bits of history about the popular attractions and even the streets we walked to get to them. The practical bits of information about French culture and the city of Paris informed us and set our pace for our holiday in France. We had the most delicious lunch at a quiet little bistro. Highly recommend a private tour with Lucien.
