We had a fabulous afternoon walk across the Latin Quarter and Saint Germain with Arthur. My wife and I have been to many cities with the help of local guides, but Arthur is a class of his own. In a setting full of history and beauty it is easy to please tourists, but Arthur's very personal style of the tour... More

Thanks to Tim, I discovered the Marais district with a very original perspective. The anecdotes are always funny and relevant Tim is very enthusiastic and makes the visit even more lively. I also appreciated the different tastings (wine, macarons, merveilleux, ...). I will definitely remember this amazing Saturday afternoon in Tim's company !!!

Fantastic tour for anyone visiting Paris. Our guide Arthur kept us interested throughout the tour with his excellent knowledge on the history and culture of Paris, showing us some of the less well-known sites of the city. The highlights of the tour were visiting the cheese shop, where we got to sample some French cheeses, and seeing the house of... More

I took this tour on a beautiful sunny winter's day. I was so lucky to have Alix as my guide. She is clearly very in touch with the city's history, politics and culture. She showed us places I would never have found on my own and her observations about the city sparked interesting discussions in the group. Insightful, impressive and... More

So much of Paris for the tourist is visits to iconic mouments or museums. These are wonderful of course but often crowded which detracts from the experience. Paris Urban Adventures takes small groups of tourists on an intimate tour of streets and places that would be missed unless guided by someone who knows not only the geography but also the... More

We took a tour today with Tim and it felt like taking a walk with a long time friend in Paris that knew all the cool places that are often missed by tourists. I've lived in Paris a couple of short times, and had never been to the places we went by today. If you are looking to learn and... More

We started at the Obelisk with a thorough French history with Arthur; he gave us an amazing explanation of the connections with other parts of the world. Then we wondered through some very pretty and unusual backstreets we could have only imagined. We return for the last days and have booked another tour. Arthur was flexible, energetic and humble with... More

Our guide, Alix was amazing, she took us on an adventure through the little known streets and back alleys of Paris! Highly recommend this tour especially if you can get Alix! Pointed out unique and interesting things I would have completely missed if I would have just tried to navigate the streets myself.

We took a morning walking tour with Paris Urban Adventures and could not have been more pleased. Our guide, Arthur, was very knowledgable, easy going, fun, flexible, informative and clearly loved the city and the people of Paris. I recommend this tour and tour company most highly. We saw parts of Paris we would never have seen on our own... More
