5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2011

Tim is a very knowledgeable guide with lots of experience and a good bloke besides! I did this tour and really felt like I got down in among the local places rather than just tripping along the major sites with other tourists. I stayed with a friend in Paris who has lived there for 3 years and I was telling her about sites and information and places that she had never heard about - she said she ought to go do
one! Highly recommend this even if you are in town for a few days..

“If it's possible to love Paris more - this is the way to do it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2011

This was a fantastic way to see a side of Paris you don't see in your average tour. The guide (Tim) was a local and he was absolutely fantastic. Not only was he a really nice guy, but he was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to help us navigate our way through the city, even after the tour had ended. We ended the tour at the Modern Art Museum, where I would not normally think to go, and the view across Paris was amazing. You could finally get the perspective you needed to truely appreciate the city. Cheese and genuine macaroon tastings, local secrets, inside knowledge, amazing history - the trip had it all. Fantastic. Could not fault it. A very worthwhile and affordable experience. Highly Recommended

“Absolutely worth doing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2011

An amazing combination of major tourist attractions and those truly local Parisian experiences. If you want the confidence to explore beyond the major tourist attractions and experience the atmosphere of Paris, this is the tour! Small groups sizes allow for you to converse with your guide and get the fullest and most flavorsome taste of Paris!

I was completely overwhelmed with what to visit on my (unfortunately short!) trip to Paris but after doing this tour I really felt like I had seen so much of this beautiful city in a short amount of time. The tour guide was heaps of fun and really knowledgable. I never say no to good food so I especially loved being able to try some french treats along the way! Yummy!

“All the best bits of Paris in a few hours!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2011

The guided tour was a great way to see all the highlights of Paris from cheese sampling to tasting a macaron to walking through the streets of Le Marais!

Don't forget to bring a camera and to wear comfortable walking shoes.
