We went on this walking tour, booked from home at random because I had not had time. We walked the back streets, little alley ways, visited places you would not normally see on the main drag. Guide Tim was very informative & pleasant. The day was quite warm. Recommend hat, water bottle & comfortable shoes. visits to the macaroon & cheese shops added an extra sense if French flair.

The tour guide was so friendly, funny & most importantly, knowledgable. The tour takes a few hours which wasn't too long but if going in summer, I definitely suggest takin a bottle of water, comfortable shoes & a hat! The best part of the tour was that the guide takes you to all the little back alleys that you would never find in your own. loved every minute of it, despite the fact it was 40 degrees that day! :-)

My daughter organised this tour before we left Sydney not knowing anything about it. We were so pleasantly surprised. We had an amazing 4 hours with Tim our guide who took us to lots of nooks and crannies where the average tourist does not go and we would not have found on our own or known anything about. We learnt lots of interesting things about the city and had a lot of fun while doing so. Tim is very knowledgeable. It was so different from any other tour that we have done and we enjoyed it so much that we have booked into Tim's second tour!

A lot of people say Paris is dirty and full of rude people, but this tour proved otherwise. The tourguide was friendly and helpful and had many good stories about Paris and the places visited. The tour was not too long or fast paced, there was time to take a few photo's and to eat the divine macaron during the visit to Fauchon's. The cheese tasting was fun, as were the guys who run the store, although they mostly spoke french, they were full of smiles and laughter. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in getting away from the packed groups and crowded sites.

I'm so glad my mom booked the tours with Urban Adventures! I learned so much from Tim just in the two hours we were with him for the tours. Not only did he teach us so much, he made it exciting and allowed us to see a variety of beautiful places in Paris that we wouldn't have known about otherwise! I would recommend Urban Adventures to everyone!
