“A great walk on and off the beaten track!”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

We joined the afternoon tour with our magnificent guide Tim - he showed us parts of the town we wouldn't have discovered on our own, spiced with facts and curiositys about the various sights. It was just perfect to walk around with someone who definitetly knew his town and it's history. On this tour were only one other couple in addition to my husband and me, which also was really enjoyable!! We had a great time walking around and talking, and sitting down at a cozy little restaurant for some delicious ham, cheese and red wine, followed by a game of petanque in the park. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to take a closer look at the beautiful city of Paris with a knowledgable guide by their side, in stead of on a bus with earphones...

“A MUST DO in Paris!!!!!”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

Every time I travel to a new city I always try to include a city tour on one of the first days of my visit, they are fantastic fun and great to get you bearings of a city. This Tour with Urban Adventures is by far the best I have ever been on!! Tim was an "incroyable" tour guide, as a local he has so much knowledge and is always looking for an opportunity to tell you a funny story. Urban Adventures have it got it spot on with this walking tour of Paris, it is about 3 hours in length and is a small group tour so it is fantastically intimate as you stroll the back streets of Paris together. Tim showed us some amazing sights that we just would not have found on our own, we even had our own cheese tasting in a local "Fromagerie" with freshly baked bread-yummo!!
All in all a great way to start a visit to this beautiful city-even if you have been before, this is a MUST DO and great value, you will not regret it. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes so that you can fully enjoy yourself, the walking is easy and relaxed so it is suitable for all ages.

Dear Alison,
A MUST DO in Paris you say? Mmmh, I hope it will soon be! Something at least as famous as the Eiffel tower, that wouldn't be a bad thing.
Thanks so much for posting the review and the pictures and I wish all the best to you two!
Cheers,

“Experience Paris like a local!”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

Marie toured us around the streets of Paris on this fantastic walking tour, we uncovered local hotspots, some major landmarks, and also experienced the Parisian lifestyle, partaking in Charcuterie and a game of Petanque. There were only five of us on the tour, and Marie was so warm, bubbly and enthusiastic about her city that it felt more like we were wandering the streets with a friend than on a tour- and that was absolutely excellent. This isn't one of those boring bus tours, this is a great opportunity to see the real Paris. I'd highly recommend Urban Adventures to anyone visiting Paris, especially if you want to see and know a little more about the city than just the Eiffel Tower.

“Hidden gems of Paris”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

I've been to Paris several times and this walking tour showed me a lovely side to Paris I hadn't seen before. The stories open up the real Paris and you feel you've gone beyond the tourist trail. Tim, the guide is fantastic- super friendly and very knowledgable. A great experience!

“Informative and fun”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

My wife and I found this tour very useful for learning about the history and lesser known facts around Paris. We had Tim as our guide and he exceeded our expectations. He was very accommodating, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We were the only two on the tour and are very grateful that this company does not have a minimum number for their tours and therefore did not cancel. We were slightly concerned that it might be a bit to much walking but Tim made some very timely stops along the way for macaroons, coffee and a game of petanque which was a lot of fun. Tim also offers so much useful information on making the most of your Parisian holiday. We highly recommend that first time visitors do this tour at the start of their stay as it will give you a better understanding of the history and sights of Paris.
