We took the Secret Paris, cheese, art and local life tour. Unfortunately it was a cold and windy day in Paris and our guide was dressed warmly. We were not. He was initially unobservant because he kept stopping us in wide open places to tell us things that could have been told in a more wind blocking area. We kept... More

We did the walk with Maria through Paris. The little stops along the way for macarons and cheese where great! However you got the feeling from Maria that she was just going through the paces and didn't really want to be there.

we took two walks with Arthur. Arthur made our week in Paris. He was knowledgeable and able to assess the interest of the group. He kept us interested and adapted the talk to suit us. Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the experience so much that we booked another urban adventure when we landed in Hong Kong. Thank You... More

What a great way to spend our last day in Paris. After touring all of the busy, crowded tourist attractions, we were treated to some back street curiosities and enjoyed macaroons, cheese and baguettes. Our guide was patient, knowledgeable, and made each one of us feel special.

We have been on many tours that Urban Adventures has organized. We choose these tours because of the sites that are included, and because of the personality of the guides. The guides that operate these tours out of Paris are simply outstanding! Their knowledge and genuine enthusiasm is contagious. Locals, such as Arthur and Alix, have the depth of knowledge... More
