I initially intended to take more tours but plans and changes in my itinerary caused mehr to only attend two tours. But for the future I intend to take up those tours I left out. My first tour was "St. Germain de Prés and the river" with Lola. Really informative tour in a less touristy area. While walking there were... More

Could've been more enjoyable if the group was smaller. We had 23 participants. The guide's voice didn't carry well in the noisy environment. She tried her best but it was hard to hear. Maybe Saturday is not a good day to explore that neighborhood...

Bonjour. Trendy Marais is wonderful, glad to read that you liked it! Now we agree groups need to be small. Unlike other companies, we cap our group sizes. When groups are too big, our guide phones in and we send an extra guide. We may also anticipate and post more than one guide. We don't let groups get big. A... More

Great walking tour of hidden Paris this morning with Florent. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the area and showed us secret gems of Paris that I hadn't come across before, despite quite a few previous visits. Lovely to see beautiful shopping arcades and parks off the beaten track and highly recommended. Showed us some great places to eat... More

We took the Street Art Tour in Paris and were guided by Victor (on facebook also known as Actar City-guide). Victor is very passionate and knowledgeable about street art, and provided wealth of knowledge during the tour. It is an off the beaten track tour and highly recommended if you want something different. Victor is a native-Parisian and also provided... More

Had a great tour with my four daughters (15-24) this past week with Valerie. Full of interesting tidbits, both fun and factual, about Montmartre and we found places we never would have discovered on our own. Only disappointment was that it really started to rain and so I think she cut it short. Missed painters square...my artist daughters were bummed.... More

We took both the Notre Dame and the Montmartre tours last week. Great experience and well worth the suggested tip of about 10€ per person. Even our 14-year old teenager liked it. Pleasant guides, who spoke very good English and had interesting stories to tell.

Did a walking tour of Montmartre, with Quentin, on Friday and it was the highlight of my weekend in Paris. It was a big group, but he managed to make it feel intimate. His local knowledge and enthusiasm were key to making it so good. Finding out great bits of information about Paris in general, as well as the history... More

I enoyed several walking tours in Paris (Montmartre, Hidden Gems, Landmarks...if I am not wrong!) and I could not do all because of the weather and lack of time. All in all they are great tours, the right amount of people and effective : Passionate guides! Bravo, well done!
