We're passionate about street art! Our tours & workshops embrace the culture and history of the Paris movement, and depending on whether you’re walking or biking, the routes differ, but typically any tour will visit the main street art and graffiti zones in the north-east of Paris: Oberkampf, Ménilmontant and Belleville, also visiting a street art graffiti gallery, where you will be able to meet the artists in person, and ending where we will often see graffiti artists painting. We are known for being relaxed and informal, but also as experts in street art and we are friends of the artists, so our knowledge of the scene comes from the streets. We also arrange stencil art and mural art workshops for individuals and groups.

Informative energized guide

Eye-opening street level commentary of street art in two charming neighborhoods off the tourist track: Oberkampf and Bellevue. Great guide with infectious enthusiasm.

I wish more people would sign up for this tour. Virginie was great. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I'll have to keep going on this tour just to see the changes. I am sad about Rue Desnoyes, but I would never have discovered it had I not signed up. We explored the 10th, 11th, and parts of Belleville. Not the romanticized... More

Virginie, our guide, was charming and knowledgeable and her enthusiasm was contagious. I saw lots of amazing street art by many different artists - and learned a lot. A couple of years ago I did a self-guided street art wander in this area, but of course the works constantly change, and having a guide I got a lot more out... More

What a wonderfully unique way to explore Paris. Our guide was so knowledgable about the artists and the entire street art culture. One of the best parts was the mix of people who joined the tour - old and young, locals and tourists. If you like street art ... Or want to experience the art scene while being outside vs.... More

I would have given this tour five stars but our guide Laure was late. Other than that, this was a fascinating tour through an area we might not have ventured to otherwise. I am not a street art novice, but I greatly appreciated the contextualizing of the art including its political and social dimensions. What was even more meaningful was... More

I was a little late getting to the meeting point (about 15 minutes) and I was so happy to see the tour was still there when we arrived. We got to see a street artist painting a piece live and I learned so much about street in Paris. Our guide was amazing and answered all of my questions.

I bought my husband a graffiti mural workshop for his birthday. It was scheduled for 9:30am, and after a particularly difficult night with our 2 month old, he showed up 2 minutes late to find no one there except the other participants wondering where the host was. After several attempts to contact them while on site and after via email,... More

My guide Charlotte Maziere not only had a great command of the English which was one of my requests, but was very relaxed, soooo easy to have a conversation and a beer with. The weather was spectacular and the afternoon was gone even before it started. The first thing about the tour is that it is in parts of Paris... More

An amazing, inspiring, beautiful and informative tour, led by simply one of the most engaging guides I have ever experienced. Virginie made street art an important conversation for all, regardless of the knowledge or experience of the participants. We left with a new lens and a deeper appreciation for street art and the artists behind the work. Don't miss this!

Underground Paris is a great way to discover the city from another perspective, following street art culture and visiting places off the beaten track. If you are a non conventional tourist and want to discover more about the graffiti and street art movement of Paris take a tour with them and you'll enjoy views of the city and hidden corners...
