I have done a few walks with Discover Walks Paris and they are always incredibly informative, fun and a terrific way to see Paris! The guides are locals and have so much knowledge and many stories that really make Paris come alive. It is the wandering down little streets, seeing quirky statutes and stonework, with the history behind them being... More

Found this tips based walking tour on trip advisor and liked the start time and gave it a go. I have done numerous tours of this type all over Europe.with several companies. This guide was the best, because he was funny, knew his stuff and we all learnt something. The route was up the hill however the group coped well... More

We did two tours. Montmartre was led by Manuel. Manuel was fun, informative and entertaining, and very generous with his time. We spent 2.5hrs exploring the area, and he told us some fun stories about the characters past and present. We also did a tour of the left bank. Informative, but not as many interesting anecdotes. Luck of the draw... More

Pierre was very knowledgeable, sensitive, amusing. He told us about Montmartre through stories that made sense, with numerous cultural references from the past and present day.

We did the Montmartre walking tour and were 100% won over thanks to our guide. She is a local and into theatre so she even performed a couple of impromptu French songs to add to the atmosphere. The area of Montmartre came alive during the 90 mins we easily walked thought the winding and uphill streets to the Sacre Coeur... More

This was easily one of the best things we did in Paris. Our walk with Marie was positively delightful, while being super informative. The tip is optional but these tour guides are clearly hard working and well worth it. Only wish we could have gone on at least one more.

I highly, highly, highly, recommend this tour. Our walking tour of Montmartre was led by Rebecca. She was actually born in Montmartre, so it was great having a true local show us around. Rebecca truly made the experience-- she was so knowledgable, fun, and passionate about sharing her city with us. We felt as though we were hanging out with... More

I will also recommend this company to others (they offer other tours in major cities around the world) as the tour guides give you information one may not have known. One of my favorite things to do when exploring a new area is to explore neighborhoods and I felt like I know more about Paris other than what a tourist... More

My friend and I participated in 4 of the discover walks Paris tours (Highlights/Right Bank, Montmarte, Left Bank and the Marais). Each of the tours was guided by a well versed, keen and entertaining guide (we had the same guide for two of the tours). The tours are a great way to become oriented to a particular district after which... More

My friend and I did the Montmartre Tour with Pierre as our guide, and I can’t say enough positive things about it! I’ve never done a free walking tour through this company, but I enjoyed my first experience with them. Pierre, however, was what truly made the experience what it was. He was charming, funny, full of knowledge and offered... More
