What a morning! I discovered the Eiffel tower from in so many different perspectives and stories that I love this old lady even more. Jean-Charles is an passionate and kind guide, we run slowly through the city, made stops to enjoy, take pictures and learn about the Eiffel Tower.
This tour, my second with Jean-Charles, was as great as the first. Im amazed with his level of Parisian knowledge and would recommend to all my friends and acquaintances looking for a better way to discover the city of lights

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.

Thank you Lukas for this great review and also for your enthusiasm. On my side, I really enjoyed exchanging with you both about history and culture (also impressed by son's knowledge!). Thanks again!

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!

It's always a pleasure to run with you Chloe. I like to create new routes in Paris for you. As you already know many places, it is a kind of challenge ;-) Thank you for your great review.

We did this run as a group activity organized by my husband office. Jean Charles was our guide. I was skeptic I would not keep up as not a runner but to the contrary the pace was perfect... jean Charles was a perfect guide.. stopped at hidden passages, taught us about architecture of certain buildings, went through some history but not overkill or boring- rather made the run interesting with facts that guidebooks do not necessarily identify... we came back by metro so this way we had time to cover a lot of ground... definitely recommend to everyone who wants to do something different yet informative and athletic but not too strenuous..
Liked the experience so much that I offered it to my 20 year old daughter and her boyfriend while they were there end of December and they loved it also!!

My friend and I took a 3-1/2 hour jogging tour with Jean Charles and I can definitely say I would do it again. Jean Charles was very knowledgeable, professional and very kind. He was ready to answer and questions we had and was very thoughtful of our pace and level of energy. He gave us an interesting insight on Paris including maps of the city and print-outs of some of the historic sites we visited. He came prepared with bottled waters and a camera to take pictures during our tour which he later sent to us via Dropbox. We began and completed the route at our hotel which was convenient. I would recommend this to anyone who loves running, wants to get to know the city and wants to overall have a different experience instead of your regular bus tours.

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.

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.

We scheduled the 9mile run around Paris and had such a great time. Jean-Charles created a personalized tour that brought us to many well known landmarks as well as beautiful historic spots that aren’t well traveled. He provided many museum and activity recommendations and took our pictures wherever we wanted. We also had great conversation about races around the world. Great time and would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

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!

I had a fantastic time on Jen-Charles' running tour. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about Paris (and running!). He showed me sites that I didn't know existed as well as more famous sites. Running through Paris in the early morning was beautiful and such a great way to see the city. Would definitely recommend.
