We just wanted to say that we thoroughly enjoyed the tour in July 2014. Alix was a gem. She provided an easy to understand condensed version of France history before we started the tour so that everyone appreciated the different landmarks and their place in history. The tour was paced very well, and even though we covered a lot of... More

I have been to Paris several times; however, I wanted an insider's view of the city. I was lucky enough to join a small tour with Arthur, who is well versed is the history of Paris while also having a great sense of adventure. Arthur led our small group on a laid back tour of some very charming and interesting... More

Dear Urban Adventures... Well, what an amazing adventure! We took part in your Secret Paris: Cheese, Art and Local life tour on the 15th July. It was one of the best highlights of our whole trip. Our guide Timothee (Tim) was amazing, his knowledge on your city, the history of it, the lifestyle of various areas of Paris and all... More

Our "hidden gems and secrets tour" with Arthur was one of the true highlights of our time in Paris. Our family (parents and fifteen year old daughter) were the only ones in the group that day and Arthur really took time to explain what we were seeing and to answer our questions along the way. He easily engaged in conversation... More

We went on the "Secret Paris" tour and had an incredible experience. It was the best way to see the backstreets and less touristy parts of Paris, as well as get a lot of interesting history. Our tour guide was extremely friendly and helpful. He answered all of our questions and then some! He worked within our interests and abilities,... More

The Bohemian Walking Tour was such a great way to finish our Paris holiday. Despite the rain this was totally enjoyable. Alix our charming native Parisian guide showed us parts of Paris that most visitors never see. Her humour and wealth of knowledge for both local & historic facts almost made us forget we were walking in the rain. Being... More

Took the Bohemian Paris walking tour with Arthur and it was just as we had hoped. It was nice to see things off the beaten track in the little nooks and gardens around the area and Arthur was a fun, easy to understand and informative tour guide willing to stop and explain/discuss anything that took our interest whether it related...

Our guide Alix was wonderful given the task of managing 5 Australians (of which i was one) who have a laid back attitude to most things and 2 New Yorkers who thought it was to be a bus tour. We saw parts of Paris we would not have got to and Alix was knowledgable without going into unnecessary detail. It... More

Took the Secret Paris tour with Alix. Very interesting walk through the streets of central Paris with commentary on history and attractions. Visited many authentic streets that we would not have found on our own. More genuine Paris than the tourist traps. No pressure to finish on the time specified. Actually took 4 hours rather than the specified 3 hours... More

I had a feeling this would be a good tour to sort of use as a last hurrah after 2 and a half weeks in paris, and I was so right. Not only was our tour guide Art fun and informative, but there was such a variety of things to see on this tour. There was everything from small, shady... More
