We did the free tour that started at the Opera. Our guide arrived very close to the start of the tour so we were a little lost and unsure if we were in the right place. Our guide was very nice and knowledgable but we were disappointed with several things-- we also did the Sandeman's tour which we found to... More

I took the Montmartre tour with Romain (the "singing guide") and the Marais tour with Salomé. Both were excellent and are highly recommended. There were 14 people on the Montmartre tour and 7 on the Marais tour. Each tour took us to places not on tourist maps and the guides gave interesting and entertaining commentary. These guides work for tips... More

I have gone on a number of Discover Walks and find them to be a useful overview of an area. The guides are knowledgable about the history. The Tours are free and they rely on donations. I don't think that it would be suitable for young kids. Ideal for people who enjoy walking and being active. The quality of the... More

Our guide, Romain, was the best I have ever had: full of enthusiasm, knowledgeable and very funny. He took us off the tourist trail and so we saw a lot that would pass tourists by. He obviously enjoys his work and our tour was longer than the advertised time because of his enthusiasm. Tips are given rather than a cost... More

We went on a walking tour of Montmartre. The tour guide was easy to locate outside the metro as shown on the website. There were two adults and two teens and we all enjoyed the couple of hours that we wandered around Montmartre, listening to stories and songs from our guide. It was fascinating walking through the small streets as... More

We did the Paris Landmarks Tour with Julie. She was fantastic. Her English was so good and she took the time, after the tour, to help us find our way (caveat with Discover Walks tours: you do not end up in the same spot you started... so you need to be good with a map to find your way). Julie... More

The guides were excellent, very knowledgeable and wanting to impart that knowledge to everyone. I learnt lots of different things about the history of France and the Marais in particular. Highly recommend it. The one thing you need to know is that these guys work on commission and have to pay the first 5 euros pêr person of anything they... More

Our family of 4 (including two teens) spent a day with these folks, participating in 3 tours in one day. We started with the Montmartre Tour, next the Left Bank – Latin Quarter Tour, and ended with the the River and Saint-Germain tour. While three tours in one day is very intensive and tiring, it is possible for adults and... More

Tour was fantastic. Marceaux went out of his way to cater to everyone in the group. He was knowledgeable, funny, and extremely intelligent. We were so grateful that we took the this tour as we had no idea there were so many intricacies and stories behind the exterior of the cathedral! Super informative and was truly one of our most...

A GREAT 3-hour non-stop walk and exhausted by pushing the wheelchair. A good and very enthusiastic guide.
