About Le Vrai Paris Tours
Hello, my name is Guillaume Le Roux, and I operate a tour business called Le Vrai Paris (The Real Paris). I am a member of the Paris Visitors’ Bureau, as a tour guide. In this capacity, I’m helping to implement the “Destination Paris: la Ville Augmentée” (Destination Paris: the Augmented City) programme, which aims to attract young European travellers to Paris. I work with the Seine-Saint-Denis & Val-de-Marne Departmental Committee for Tourism, which has also given me its seal of approval and which, much to the delight of my visitors, sells several of my tours. These tours are aimed at… – first-timers to Paris who need an introduction to the city: I give them an overview of the city to make it less intimidating for them and so that they feel confident about going out and exploring it further. – and Paris connoisseurs, from France or abroad, who want to discover the city in greater depth, be surprised, and get off the beaten track.

Review of: Welcome to Paris
Four of us were lucky enough to tour Paris with Guillaume, and it was an adventure. He shared with us details of well known landmarks as well as hidden gems in the city. A wonderful day with a delightful guide!

Guillaume was the perfect guide for our trip to the flea. He was very understanding of exactly what we were looking for and guided us so we were efficient with our time. The flea is massive and we would not have found the allees that pertained to our "hunt" had he not shown us. He showed us a few tucked away stalls that held treasures we never would have even known were there. He was incredibly helpful navigating the language barrier as well. If you ever need a guide Le Vrai Paris is your go to. Guillaume customizes to your needs wether it is off the beaten path place or quick shopping in the marche and is incredibly knowledgeable of all things Paris. We will definitely reach out to him again for a custom tour on our trip #6!

My mom and I went for the 1st time to Paris in May 2018. I found Guillaume through a series of videos called "Alan por el mundo". My mom only speaks Spanish so I decided that would be a great experience to hire a real Parisian to give us a private tour. He was very responsive since I contacted him through WhatsApp. He gave me several schedule options until we decided the best time for us,taking into account our other tours. His Spanish is really good and my mom and I were amazed with all the interesting facts he was telling us. We decided to do the Latin Quarter tour and he took us to really cool places, something that you won't see in a regular walking tour. He was super friendly and as some other people have said, he was like having a long time friend from Paris. He knows really well Paris history and was kind enough to stop maybe every block while I was taking million pictures haha. One of the best parts, was at the end, after 2 hours walk, when he took us to a delicious and hidden Italian Restaurant. We had the best authentic lasagna. He is also a gastronomy expert and knows about very good restaurant options that are not the typical ones that all tourists go. I definitively recommend Guillaume for tours in Spanish and English. He is a really nice person and made our 1st time in Paris great! My mom and I will always remember this amazing time in my beautiful Paris. I can't wait to go back! Muchas Gracias Guillaume!!

Based on a recommendation from a friend living in Brittany, I booked a solo tour with Guillaume as my time in Paris was limited and I wanted to get an authentic Parisian experience, see some of the sites, but at the same time, wanted a local's perspective. Guillaume completely blew me away with his tour, felt like we'd been friends forever, and gave me great insight into Paris and how to navigate and appreciate this beautiful city. I booked a morning tour and we got to explore a market of Duplex and see some of the touristic sites before the regular crowd/rush was there. I wish my time here was longer, and will definitely book again when coming with friends and want to explore different neighborhoods!! I wish I could've done a full food tour with him as his lunch/dinner recs were amazing!!
