We took a three hour French Revolution walking tour with our guide Paul, and just one other couple. We started at Les Invalides, which is where the revolution started, and spent quite a long time there as Paul laid out the foundations of the revolution. It's great to hear information like this from someone who is obviously so knowledgeable and... More

We enjoyed seeing all the sites at our leisure and not on a bus with a million people. We stopped in local stores and talked to shopkeepers. We ate ice cream at Hagen Das as we walked. We liked the ability to make our own tour.

This tour is excellent - 2 hours of exploring the city and its turbulent past. Interesting to see the places that made the French Revolution what it was. Our guide was excellent and informative. She allowed and encouraged questions. The tour goes through various important historical places associated with the French Revolution and was extremely interesting. Wear comfortable shoes -... More

We took the above with Gil who was informative and personable. This is a good introduction to Paris. There were only five in our group so very informal and plenty of time to ask questions. We had lunch in the Tuileries gardens.

Although I have lived in Paris for 5 months, I had yet to go on a tour. I went on the French Revolution themed tour and learned a lot about sites that I walk by every day! Very interesting and informative.

Great tour with Tanya. Very informative. We even had a couple of minutes to shop at Shakespeare and Company. The only thing missing, would of been to include a visit to Les Arènes de Lutèce

This tour is pricey compared to the cost of the ticket to just go up the tower. However the lines are very long and you must purchase online very far advance to avoid them on your own (like 3+ months). Even if you purchase far ahead of time you are then locked into a specific date and time and can't... More

Went on this tour with Steph, who was a very informative and engaging guide. She was able to connect with the group and made the information fun and easy to understand. Even though the walk itself was quite long, it didn't feel that way as Steph had little pieces of knowledge about everything, and always had knowledge to share. I... More

The classic tour with our guide Steph was a brilliant addition to an Easter weekend in Paris! She is a fountain of Knowledge and can tell you anything ranging from the some-what gruesome history of the French revolution to the best places to dine in Paris. The weather was lovely, Steph's delivery of French history was hilarious and I highly... More

We did the French Revolution tour with Steph and would highly recommend it-we were a family of 5 with children aged 8 to 14 and she kept their attention for the whole 2+ hours. Steph is a history graduate who studied in Paris and was very knowledgable and also skilled at making the information easy to understandand FUN! I would... More
