Browse chic boutiques as well as local open-air markets, popping into fromageries and boulangeries like the locals and maybe sampling some delicacies like a macaron or regional cheeses.  Explore with your local, strolling along the charming streets and browsing their stylish boutiques and épiceries, through leafy parks where locals play boule and through charming open-air markets. Stroll along the Rue Sauffroy, which is the centre of the neighbourhood’s African community, and browse shops selling products from across the continent and maybe try some delicious and authentic food.

    Perfect Introduction to Le Marais
    The Tastes of Le Marais tour was a perfect introduction to our neighborhood and to Paris in general. Francois was our guide and he was friendly, knowledgeable, and well-prepared. We sampled a variety of great food and wine, and he made sure to tailor the tour to our group. His enthusiasm was contagious and really helped set the tone for the rest of our stay.

    Montmartre walking tour
    Our guide, Francois, was wonderful. Very knowledgeable with great stories about the area. He was receptive to questions, stopping whenever we wanted to look at something or grab a snack, and easy to get along with. He gave a great overview without any prompting. We enjoyed his company. We met in Montmartre at a pre-arranged Metro stop, which found very easy, but we understand other arrangements were possible if needed. The overall experience exceeded our expectations.

    Guide and Tour were excellent
    Alexandra was and excellent tour guide who met all are expectations. A great overview of this area personalized to our tastes. She recommended restaurants and other sites to come back to on our own. City unscripted is a great way to tour and it was just the two of us. Highly recommend.

    Enjoyable walking tour of food and drink
    We really enjoyed our behind the scenes tour with Francois. He was very knowledgeable about the local food and wine industry and gave us a perspective we would not have known about, if on our own. We got to sample many local French foods - macarons, crepes, cheese and bread, and wine!

    Old world charm of Le Marais
    Martyna was an excellent guide, with intimate experience and knowledge of this area. It is a charming part of Paris that revealed the secrets of it history pre and post Napoleonic time which I found fascinating. Martyna was able to tailor this tour to meet my needs, she was very flexible, which I most appreciated.

    More than a host!
    Lilli was the perfect host I have ever had. It’s all about you, the traveller, what you want to see. Lilli to me acted more like a friend and that’s what a solo traveller needs when you are in an unknown city. Lilli ensured I saw all that I wanted to see, nothing was too hard she went beyond what any usual host would do. She took me to the best tasting Macaroons cafe which was a treat! Thank you Lilli for being the perfect kind hearted host.

    Wish I knew about this sooner
    Martyna developed a custom tour that matched our interests. She met us where we arrived in the city and we immediately set out to see the city. Touring with her gave us the confidence to go places we wouldn’t have attempted on our own. This was so much better than any hop on/off tour. In 4 hours we saw more than we could have seen in 2 days on our own, without rushing.

    My time in Paris
    In September 2019 I visited Paris for only 2 days. I just wanted to get an impression of Paris. With Gervana I had a real good personal guide. She prepared a perfect tour according to my wishes. And she was always flexible for spontaneous ideas. We have seen the impressive buildings like Louvre, Obelisque, Notre Dame and were drinking coffee in a nice café and visited a typical French library. Everything was perfect! Er had a lot of fun and I will keep this tour in my mind for a long time! Many many thanks to Gervana!

    Excellent way to discover Paris
    Kaja was a brilliant host and really made the most of our three hours together. She took us to see many different parts of Paris both landmarks and hidden gems that we would never have discovered on our own. Kaja had read our brief and so was able to tailor what we saw to my families likes/dislikes. My teenage girls said they loved the tour as did my husband. As we were only in Paris for two days and most of us had never been before this was the perfect tour to do. I would highly recommend the City Unscripted tours and we'll definitely look at doing one again in other cities we visit.

    Eight hour tour with a local host in Paris
    We enjoyed our 8 hour local tour with Lili. She showed us areas we wanted to see and areas we did not yet know and she gave local recommendations and provided us with good information of the areas and how to get around. We then were able to easily use public transport all around Paris and catch the train to Versailles. Thanks Lili. It was a long day and maybe next time we would consider doing Two tours of four hours each over two days instead so we could your in the morning then spend time enjoying the areas by ourselves in the afternoon. So we will see you on our next visit Lili!! Alison and Rob O’Brien.

    Tour of Canal Saint Martin
    The Tour of the canal Saint Martin was Amazing. Hristo was very knowledgeable with the history and much more. He was able to customize the tour to my preference. I will certainly use him again on my future ventures to Paris.
