Enjoyable Paris Walking Tour
, Oct 2019
Wonderful guide and must see secret sites. A fun romp around Paris for the rich ... and the working.
Excellent guide, but tour format could use improvement
, Oct 2019
Emelie is a wonderful tour guide and provides great information! Thank you, Emelie! However, the format of the tour itself could use some improvement. I suggest a different starting point that cuts down on overall walking distance, incorporate more information while on the move, and/or possibly consider either adding food stops or removing them from the agenda.
Raphael was the best!

I highly recommend. We had a total of 5 people on the tour. Raphael was knowledgeable and so cool! We had fun laughing with him. We tried Macron, cheese, bread and wine in out of the way places. It wasn't touristy and crowded. If you can do the all day tour I would. We were mad we didn't sign up. Didn't want to say goodbye!

Nice tour. My wife and I were the only ones and we had a very educational tour of numerous sites. Some we have seen before but were treated to more history to help put these sites into context of the history of Paris. Totally recommend it!!
Places we would not have seen

Our guide Emilie led us on a wonderful walk to out of the way places we never would have seen. She was knowledgeable and added interesting and humorous tips along the way. We loved it!
Overall rating for Walking Tour

Doine, our tour guide, was fantastic. She had a lot to show us and tell us about the vaious sections of Paris we visited. The Madeline and the Cheese samples were amazing. It was a very good tour. She told us about the Les halles and after the tour we went underground and shopped and ate at several of the stores we visited.

This was a great tour and fun to do after you have seen the “must spots” in Paris. We got a lot of interesting info on various aspects of Parisian life - old and current, life, buildings/monuments and locations from our guide Eugenia. Nice pace with good mix of stops through the whole tour. *Start point was a church - but it looks like a monument; not so easy to know you show up in the right spot :-)
Very good tour
, Jul 2019
It was great, guide was very good. Plenty to see, hear and talk about. Ended up being longer than 3 hrs, the time went pretty quick because it was pretty full. One review said the amount of cheese in the tasting was not good, but I thought it was fine. I would suggest talking a bottle of water along and there is a place to refill. It would be a great tour to do at the begining of a holiday to Paris, you learn plenty and see places you would want to go back to and spend more time at.
Interesting and good value
, Jun 2019
A very informative and entertaining tour. Our guide Diona took us to places and provided historical facts that were new to us in spite of visiting Paris before. We would recommend.
Great insider's look at Paris neighborhoods

Half day tour of the hidden spots of Paris. Great tour guide and a very nice stroll around central Paris with local insight.
