I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that is a first time visitor to Paris. Our guide Tim, did an exceptional job taking us to exciting, off-the-"tourist path" places that we never would have seen if it wasn't for booking with Urban Adventures. We really liked that he took the time to explain the significance and/or history behind the places we visited - making the experience even more memorable. At the end of the tour, he made sure to answer any lingering questions we had and to point out other places we may be interested in going to on our own. We even had him mark some of the streets we visited during the tour so we could go back later in the day to explore even more.

Should we return to Paris in the future (hopefully!), we will definitely book another tour with Urban Adventures!

Thought it was great, most of the tour kept away from the main tourist saturated sites. Our guide "Tim" was very informative, showed us places we would never have found or most likely would have walked past without even knowing their significance. We had some cheese & cold meet sampling and then some traditional ice cream. Yum! Finished the tour off with a couple of bottles of wine and game of traditional french boules. There is a lot of walking so make sure you have good walking shoes.

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..

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

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!
