based on 5 reviews

A manageable city walk with a knowledgeable and cheerful guide. We are family with two children, 9 and 17, and the guide made a real effort to make them both and us adults interested. Insight into the city's history spiced with anecdotes. Highly recommended, especially if hosting one of your first trips to Paris. Take it preferably at the beginning of your stay.

The tour guide contacted us beforehand so that we could meet on time the next day, the tour was interesting, a lot could be told and shown. We were lucky enough to be in a group of two, so that our running pace and questions were taken into account.

It was a very nice tour. The guide went out of her way to show as much of Paris as possible. Interesting information and unique moments of this tour make the trip unforgettable.

Great combo of activities, loved both !! I highly recommend to have a good time and learn things :)

Fantastic !!! Useful for those who stay for a short time. Experience to be redone
