Arthur, is passionate and very knowledgeable about Paris, giving us so much insight into Paris as it is now, as well as the rich history, buildings and little unknown tid-bits. We stopped for a macaron in a famous patisserie, then wandered around the back streets before he took us to the food section of Paris, overflowing with market stalls if... More

The 'Secret Paris: Cheese, Art, and Local Life' tour is a must do. Our guide, Alix, was superb, instantly matching her walking speed and style to the group we had. She took us on a fascinating route of back streets and Passages that we'd never known to look for without a local's knowledge.

Wonderful tour with an excellent guide. Alex, our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Her English was excellent. She actually spent an extra hour with us. It was clear that she knew her city and enjoyed her work.

She also paid attention to each member of the group making sure that we were all getting the best tour possible. Not to mention that she took us to the BEST Parisian food spots (Places I never...

I did the "Secret Paris" walk - and had a most enjoyable 4 hours. The walk was taken at a very leisurely pace, Alex (the guide) was engaging, took a genuine interest in the people she was with and was really keen to show us things that we will all remember, for sure. A great balance between some of the... More

A wine house and a game of pétanque. Arthur took us through the Latin Quater and Saint Germain to experience bohemian Paris. He was very intelligent and knowledgeable and was able to answer all the questions asked. And so many many questions were asked!! The questions became a bit tiresome as the other people spoke more than poor Arthur did... More

It was nice to have Alex with us for a walking tour in Paris. She is a lovely girl with sunny smiles. I like just walking through the secret paths and quiet areas of Paris without any concern for safety issues, so relaxing. The macaroon and cheese we had were also nice;)
