Paris: 2-Hour Passages Private City Tour in German

4. Paris: 2-Hour Passages Private City Tour in German

The hidden passages is not a term for many Parisian visitors, as they are usually discovered by chance, as their name suggests, a bit hidden and cannot be found right away. The Parisian passages will take you back to the early 19th century, when Paris was not as modern as the city it is known as today. Paris was a dirty city at the time and lived up to its filthy image. The Parisian passages were not shopping arcades as they are known today, but at the time, an answer to the prevailing circumstances. You could call them the forerunners of the 'grand magasin.' Why you'll be enchanted, feel relegated to another time and why the passages have only been in vogue for a short time will be revealed to you on this extraordinary private city tour.

Thanks to Florian, what a wonderful experience it was. It was my first segway ride that too in Paris. My segway tour was wonderful due to : 1. Good Introduction: Florian, has clearly explained the basics of how to handle. He explained the symbols (signals using hands) that he is going to use during our ride. Then we had a slight training session nearby where there is no traffic. 2. 2. Beautiful Journey: We started slowly & drove by small lanes and gradually passed by bigger lanes and even crossed busy signals. We covered (Passed by) almost all the important locations like Eiffel tower, les invalides ( Napoleon tomb & military Museum) , Alexander III bridge and others. 3. 3. Safety: He had his eyes on me ( on his rear) frequently to confirm that i am driving safe ( & his segway too ). 4. 4. Tour Explanation: Florian, explained me the history of that location where we stopped and also explained background of some of the rare old buildings with different architecture. It's great!!
