Full description
Explore one of the most famous parts of the “Rive Gauche” (Left Bank) of Paris. The Latin Quarter has been the land of students for over 1,000 years, and possibly the world's single greatest source of artistic inspiration – from Salvador Dali to Woody Allen, and from Hemingway and Joyce to Vargas Llosa.

Visit some of the most amazing spots of the bohemian Paris such as the Sorbonne University, the Pantheon, the bookstore Shakespeare and co., the hotel Cluny, the oldest cinema in Paris, to end in the magnificent Gardens of Luxembourg. 

The 2-hour tour will take you through the heart of Parisian history and touches on everything from Medieval times to the great intellectuals on the planet. This is where Paris began many centuries ago and continues to be one of the most vibrant areas of the city.

While this was not the tour I signed for, the tour that was focused on the women of The Latin Quarter, was excellent. Our guide, Panama, was able to show us the important places of the quarter, while talking about several women that influenced France. Over all, it was a great combination of fun and educating tour

Very good but some unforeseen.

When we booked the tour, we had the idea that comes on the page. When we were in line and the girl from Sandemans attended us, she explained that it was going to be different, talking about the great women related to this tour of the Latin Quarter of Paris. We were given the option of changing to Friday to be the traditional one, but that was impossible to have other visits contracted. The tour is wonderful and recommended, of course, but it is important that you notify the change in advance because there may be people who are not interested or like this change. On the other hand, there were a lot of people on the tour. The guide told us that it was not planned, but I think that at the time of reservations this should be controlled. Maybe we were about 40 people.
