Booked a private walking tour while on vacation in Paris... Martin himself was on vacation, but his business partner Pepe was our guide and excellent! My fiance and I had already been to Paris so we were eager for some lesser-known sights and neighborhoods, and that's exactly what Pepe delivered. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and clearly proud to call Paris home. Would recommend to anyone!

Five of us went on a tour with Pepe on Friday 28th November on the day we arrived for a weekend trip to Paris. Pepe was an excellent guide. Showing us how to navigate the Metro and the buses around the City. Also took us to many different parts of the City.
All in all an excellent start to the visit.
Many thanks.

Having been recommended to take a tour with Martin, I was already expecting something pretty good. But form the moment we met up with Pepe, (our guide for the 3 hours) I knew we were in for a treat.
Pepe has an extensive knowledge of not only the area, but the history of the major, and not so major, landmarks. He will point out the recognisable landmarks during your walk, but he shows you the surrounding areas in more depth as there is a lot more interesting facts and stories associated with the surroundings that you would not find out without extensive knowledge.

There were 7 of us in our group which was a good number as we got the personal touch walking around, but also had time to interact with others on the tour as well. There are plenty of opportunities to stop to take some photos along the way so bring a fully charged camera with plenty of memory.
Pepe took photos as well in the prime photo spots of everyone so you could get in the photos yourselves.

At the end of the tour there was an opportunity to ask questions and get an idea as to where to go for dinner/drinks etc. and also the well marked map with all recommendations.
The following day we received an email with further recommendations and the photos he had taken the previous day.

If you have never been to Paris before, or have been and want to learn more about the history of many of the buildings, then this is thoroughly recommended. I would strongly recommended going on either your first or second day in the city as the recommendations will only enhance your trip further.

Thanks you to Martin and especially Pepe for making our trip that much better as when we come back we will have a better knowledge of how Paris used to be and what little gems it has hidden off the main streets. I would definitely book again to see more of the sights that we didn't cover this time around
