The four of us did the "Secret paris; cheese, art & local life" walking tour with Arthur at the end of last November. There were 7 of us in the group so it's a small group which we were very happy about. Though the weather was cold & gloomy, we had a lot of fun with Arthur. He took us... More

Our walk with Tim was wonderful. He is so full of information. He walks at a resonable pace and makes one feel like he has all the time in the world for just you. He had lots o information and he presented the information in a fun manner. Our stop at a very small wine bar was delightful. We drank... More

Where do I start with Tim and Urban Adventures. We are a small group company that works with wonderful guides worldwide, and Tim with Urban Adventures is in rarefied air at the top of that list. On our group tour of Paris we worked with Tim over 4-5 months to develop the perfect itinerary splitting a group of 22 into... More

We spent the most delightful morning learning about Paris with our guide, Arthur, on the cheese/art, local life tour. He was super friendly, very well-informed, and easily adapted to our group's needs (one of our group had difficulty walking). His knowledge of the history of Paris, and his interest in learning about our experiences, made our tour pass too quickly!... More

We went on the Paris Bohemien tour and I can honestly say that it was a highlight of our trip to Paris. The tour was the perfect balance of information and fun. We got to see so many parts of Paris that we would not have been able to find ourselves and on the way had great fun with the... More

After going on the morning tour a few years ago and loving it, the first thing I wanted to do when I came back to Paris was go on the afternoon tour. I'm so glad I did because once again it was a highlight of my trip. Last time around I had Tim as a guide, who was fantastic, and... More

We took the cheese and macaroon tour August 30th and I have been hesitant to share until I heard from Trip Advisor and AMEX going in together for reviews! A brillant idea I might add! We also had Mary. It was an overcast morning and Mary was late. I like it when the tour directors are early or on time... More

We took the Cheese, Art and Local Life tour with Tim and it was amazing! Tim was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Paris and all she has to offer! We visited parts of the city we never would have known about, including a great market where we had an amazing cheese tasting, and I was able to peruse a patisserie... More

We took the Cheese, Art, and Local Life tour with Mary. Perhaps we were tired or she didn't have her best day. The two biggest issues we had were that she didn't speak loud enough and she didn't look to see whether our group was staying together. So for example, at least twice, she walked across the street while speaking... More

If you really want to get a feel for the culture and history of Paris these are the two tours to do and they are "urban adventures". Did both on the same day and yes it's a lot of walking but frankly that's the only way to see Paris. Tim does a brilliant job of showing his City to the... More
