Super (free) tour of Paris with Dawie - really interesting with lots of fun stories. We then booked the Montmarte tour later in the week which was super too! Would definitely recommend :) thanks Dawie!

We did the free walking tour with Sebastian in English. He was an excellent guide. Great little facts. Very entertaining. Would absolutely recommend and as you don’t pay to do the tour, tipping your guide is a great way to show you appreciate the guide.

Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the
residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon
never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional
cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets
surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide
eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just
next door and the prototypical terraced French
brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this

Because I was travelling long term, I was always on a tight budget. So I would always tip 5 or 10 euros because that was all I could afford. I usually tried to tip 10 euros, but if I really enjoyed the tour, I would give 20.
