        Wonderful Running Tour of the Paris Latin Quarter
        I had a wonderful running tour experience with my running tour guide Jean-Charles. He was a knowledgeable, personable, and great running guide. I learned many things I did not know about Paris. He took many photos for me to remember my special experience. It was definitely a memorable experience and one I highly recommend for any runner visiting Paris who wishes an excellent tour.

        Amazing Tour with a friendly guide
        Jean-Charles was an excellent find, he clearly loves running and showing other runners around his city. He customized a tour from our hotel and modified it as we ran. While I'm sure he can arrange around any schedule, it was nice to leave some extra time so we could enjoy his company and knowledge a bit longer than the 3 hours we booked. We took the tour our first day, giving us lots of ideas for the rest of our visit. Simply excellent.

        Paris running tour
        We loved our morning run and tour with Jean-Charles. It really is the best way to explore the city and be introduced to so many things most visitors won't hear about. Can't rate the experience highly enough.

        Excellent 5 mile running tour of Paris
        This was our first running tour and my husband and I highly recommend it! Jean-Charles mapped out the tour of the most important sites on a five mile (our choice of distance) loop from our hotel. He shared the history as well as cultural and interesting aspects of the areas. He adjusted the route as we ran along based on sites we had already seen and what we were interested in seeing on our own. Prior to our trip he went above and beyond offering information and answering questions. Anytime we travel, we take our running gear and map out about 5 miles to explore the area on our own. But having Jean-Charles as an experienced running guide share his beautiful, beloved city took the guesswork out and made for amazing memories! Thank you Jean-Charles!

        Jean-Charles was a delightful tour guide and we saw some sights and learned great information that we would have missed out on without him. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area. Well worth it! Thank you, Jean-Charles!

        A Must Do Tour for Runners Visiting Paris!
        Jean-Charles is the best running tour guide -- I had so much fun on this custom tour of Paris! He met me at sunrise at my hotel, and off we went on a lovely five mile loop he planned, bringing along a custom map of our trip and historical photos to explain our stops along the way. I loved that he pointed out unique gems and tidbits in the neighborhood I'm staying as we made our way to other landmarks. He tailored the run to my pace, and we took plenty of stops so I could soak in all the info he shared and ask questions. He also snapped tons of photos and sent me them immediately after our run, including with a fun GPS map with the photos embedded showing our route. I loved all of the historical and architectural details he pointed out that I would have never noticed wandering on my own or from a guide book. Unlike a more commercial tour vendor, Jean-Charles spent over two hours guiding me around Paris until we returned back at my hotel. He also pointed out personalized recommendations of places to visit during my vacation in Paris, and they've been wonderful. Highly recommend scheduling this tour early in your visit to Paris so you can take advantage of all of his excellent recs!

        Fantastic way to learn about Paris$
        It was the best experience!!! Jean-Charles is a super nice guy, with tons of knowledge of Paris, which he shares in a very engaging way. The pace was good, with lots of stops with very interesting information. I can warmly recommend to take running city guide to explore a city. I have already recommended this to several friends.

        Best part of our trip!
        We've now been on two running tours with Jean-Charles. It's the perfect way to jumpstart our trip - we get up early on our first day to beat the jetlag, and get our bearings in the city. Jean-Charles is the ideal guide. He knows every part of the city and its history, and thoughtfully plans each tour to make sure that we're experiencing something new. He also cares about his clients. He makes sure to document the tour with lots of beautiful photos, maps, and documentation so we come away with souvenirs. And the run is paced to perfection! We can't wait to return and go on another tour!

        Best Running Tour!!
        I highly recommend this tour! You can cover so much and learn all kinds of things you wouldn’t on a typical walking tour. Jean-Charles would be great with beginner to serious runners. I love running so the tour intrigued me. I got to do what I love most while seeing so many sights and learning more about the history and culture. And I didn’t feel bad about all the cheese and baguettes after logging the miles :). Jean-Charles also provided all kinds of extra recommendations and ideas that we wouldn’t have had on our own. I will definitely do this again!

        I got this tour as a gift for my boyfriend and he loved it! It's an excellent way to see the beautiful city. Jean Charles was super friendly and very professional, with a lot of knowledge about the city. They did all of the main sites, all at their own leasurely pace! Definitely recommend doing this if you have a short time!

      We had an amazing time with Jean-Charles on our running tour. There were four of us including two kids 9 and 11 who have 10K running experience but are still young. Jean-Charles was great with them and ran at a comfortable pace they could handle, while at the same time giving us all sorts of insights into the buildings and other sights in and around the Latin Quarter.

      We really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend anyone who wants to learn about and see a lot of sights in a particular area in a short amount of time to contact Paris Running Tours.

      My 20k running tour with Jean Charles was absolutely everything I had hoped. I saw parts of the city I wouldn’t have been able to visit otherwise during my short business trip and learned a tremendous amount about the history of the city in the process. The experience is absolutely worth the cost!

      Jean-Charles from Paris Running Tours was an exceptional guide who made my trip to Paris truly unforgettable. His vast knowledge of the city's history and culture was invaluable, and his passion for running and exploring made for an exhilarating experience. With Jean-Charles, I was able to take in the breathtaking sights and sounds of Paris, all while getting in a good workout. I couldn't have asked for a better way to explore this beautiful city, I highly recommend Paris Running Tours to anyone looking for a unique and unforgettable experience in Paris.

      Paris is SUCH a great city for running...wide paths with no cars, beautiful gardens around every corner and stunning buildings which actually make it hard to run because you just want to be looking up at the architecture the entire time! That being said, the best part of running in Paris was our Paris Running Tours guide, Jean-Charles, he was great. Such a nice person who showed us all around different parts of the city and did an excellent job describing the history and evolution of the city of Paris. We are also big runners and were staying in Paris for a couple days, so he gave us some excellent running route recommendations for the rest of our trip! Would certainly recommend this to anyone visiting.

      This was our third running tour with Jean Charles. He is my favorite running partner in Paris!! It's the perfect way to discover different parts of the city and I love all of the history Jean Charles infuses into the tour. Jean Charles also helped us plan other running routes for our other days in Paris. Can't wait for our next running tour together!

      I learnt more about Paris in the 2 hours of this tour than on my multiple previous visits put together! Jean-Charles puts in an incredible amount of personal care and attention to creating a tour especially for the area of Paris you want to discover. His knowledge is of course amazing but the way he pulls out the tiny details you would otherwise walk/run straight past is wonderful. Highly recommended! Suitable for all running abilities as you stop so often and he runs at your pace.

      Jean-Charles met us at our hotel on our first day in Paris, and took us on a wonderful orientation run around Paris. He was very informative, and shared some fascinating historical details along the route. He also took many photos, which he later dropboxed to us on the very same day. It was a pleasure running with Jean-Charles, and we are happy to recommend him and give him the 5 stars he deserves!

      Jean-Charles is a fantastic guide and running is the way to see Paris! He followed up with a list of suggestions for things we’d seen on our route as well as pictures and even an animated map of the route. I’d highly recommend this tour.

      I went at 7:30 in the morning and I’d recommend a morning run to avoid crowds and see Paris come alive.

      We did the 14km run in our first morning here to get a first impression of Paris. In general, I like running around in a new city because you can discover so much combining it with a little work-out. This time I took my 16 year old son with me. But the tour with Jean-Charles was definitely more than a simple morning run, Our guide had a lot of information ,answered questions and pointed out very interesting information that you definitely do not get on guidebooks. We were chatting all the time, there was time for taking photos ect., the running part was very easy and relaxed, and the tour was great. My son was very enthusiastic.

      I would highly recommend a running tour of Paris with Jean-Charles. 3 hours well spent with a Parisian passionate about his city. An experienced runner, he tailors your time with him to suit your ability and perfectly balances the exercise with the historical information and fun facts as you pass by both the famous, as well as the more hidden sites of the city. Arriving well prepared with photos and pictorial historical information on many of the sites we visited, he was also very gracious in taking lots of photos which were promptly sent to us with additional info and recommendations about the city. I would definitely recommend a tour with him, it was a highlight of our weekend. Thank you Jean-Charles.
