We had visited Paris on a previous occasion but doing this tour showed us places that we would never have found on our own and the macaroon and cheese tasting were definite highlights! A definite...

I could not recommend Urban Adventures any more highly. I took both walking tours the same day and they were both excellent. Tim was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I would not hesitate to take these tours again the next time I visit Paris.

We were fortunate to have Arthur as our guide. We learned more on this tour than we have on all of our other visits to Paris combined. We saw many things that would not be possible to find on our own. Not to mention that the macaroons and cheeses were fantastic! Arthur was articulate and very pleasant. He discussed with... More

absolutely wonderful tour of a side of Paris you would not see, even when it is right in front of you. Our guide, Alex, was very friendly, extremely funny and knowledgeable about every aspect of the tour, from the official histories to local anecdotes about each stop. The macaroons were delicious, as was the cheese platter we ate in glorious... More

Our guide, Alex was awesome and this was definitely a highlight of our trip to Paris, even my husband thought so. The weather turned bad but she took this opportunity to share cafe and knowledge with us in a warm cozy place. When the rain subsided, we continued our stroll. The cheese tasting was amazing as she gave us a... More

Our guide Tim was not only friendly and helpful, he did he job extremely well as he really knew the ins and outs of Paris. We entered areas that are really unknown to tourism and he explained in detail each area. From Macaroons to cheese tasting, we are a part of the Paris scene with Tim at the helm. I... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon tour ('Bohemian Paris Tour') led by Tim. I have been to Paris a number of times but I still learned a lot and visited places that I had not visited before on this tour. It really enhances your experience as a tourist to be shown around by a tour guide who has such a high... More

After being in Paris for 5 days, we thought we saw it all. This 4 hour walking tour showed us the "real" Paris including the market, historical places, shopping districts and communities. The two stops for macaroons and cheese was such an added bonus! Our guide Tim was outstanding. This is not a tour for those who have difficulty walking... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our tour with Tim. The group size was small (5 of us + Tim), and the pace was very nice, with regular stops for conversation with Tim and our fellow tour attendees, yet we covered a lot of ground in the St. Germain and St. Michel areas. We saw many things that we would... More

The highlight of my trip to France was without a doubt the walking tour that I did with Arthur and Urban Adventures. The tour was awesome and truly felt like I was being shown Paris by a friend – Thank you Arthur for an experience above and beyond my expectations. You have a real talent for providing just the right... More
