The Marais is a great foodie destination, and the history of the... More

Were on a "Gourmet Marais" tour with Adele, on oct 1st 2016. Our group was 6 people + guide. Adele was a great guide, friendly and fun. But I also felt that she very knowledgeable and loved her job, her city and the topic of the tour (yummy food). She also showed us places and buildings that we would not... More

Gourmet Marais tour was a great way to sample some of the basic Parisian things (macarons, merengue) and also to be exposed to the hidden gems of the Marais neighbourhood, along with the history and architecture of the area. Tim was a knowledgeable and attentive guide, and his helpfulness and attention to detail was very much appreciated.

Arthur was an excellent tour guide. We have been to Paris numerous times and have walked many neighborhoods but it was through Arthur's insight and knowledge that we learned and saw many things we wouldn't have otherwise. It was great to discuss with him issues of contemporary Paris as well as French history. Fauchon for breakfast, a wonderful lunch at... More

We did both tours back to back. It was a wonderful day. We started with some of the hidden places of Paris and ended with a fantastic wine and cheese tasting at the end of the day. We covered lots of ground and saw a lot. These are places the guide books don't share and that only locals know about.... More

I chose to take this walking tour as I had been in Paris a few times earlier and had already seen the major sights. This time I wanted to explore something different. I had earlier taken an Urban Adventures tour in another city and liked it a lot, so it was an easy choice to book a Paris tour from... More

I chose this tour because we've been to Paris several times and have seen many of the major sites. This tour sounded different and it was. It started in Place de la Concorde, and Adele, our guide, started with new facts and antidotes about the Bastille Prison during the revolution. The stops for the macaroons and cheese tasting were also... More
