We are Discover Walks: Europe's #1 for custom and private tours. When you pick a tour, you ask yourself: does it rate high? But you can also ask: will they both show me the must-see landmarks and “take me backstage” for a taste of the real city? Do they keep their groups small, with good facetime with the guide? Will my guide be not some expat, but a true local with a passion for her/his hometown? A guide able to give me more than just facts, dates and figures? In other words, will I be just another tourist? Or will they “lift the curtain” for me? Discover Walks creates tours that include both the tourist must-sees and locals’ hidden gems. We select guides who are true locals with great personalities. We train them to be engaging and personable and to tell a story well. We keep our groups small, by adding an extra guide when necessary. Welcome on our tours!

Tour description

If you are looking for something different, Hidden Gems is the tour for you!
Enjoy a tour with a bundle of surprises, secret venues and hard-to-find gems! A local Parisian will share the hidden treasures and gems that tourist maps will not show:
Palais Royal, Passage Vivienne and Victory Plaza
The garden of love, the penny fountain and the Sun King on his horse
Heist and resistance fighters: unravel the many mysteries surrounding the Louvre.

So we can see more on this tour, we do not spend time going inside each building.
Tour ends near metro stations: musée du Louvre, and Bourse.

Important information:
- Lasts 90 minutes, in English, along a short and comfortable route
- Engaging and enthusiastic, born-and-raised local guide
- This is a free walking tour: at the end of the tour, pay what you want.

-We walk rain or shine. In Summer, we keep to the shade, and our guide brings fans for everyone. Just look for the guide in a pink vest.

Thoroughly enjoyed this quirky tour of the lesser know gems of Paris. In fact, Daniel was a bit of a gem himself! Highly recommend.

Our guide obviously loved sharing the little gems of Paris with us. He was encourgaing of questions and comments, and even though we stopped by places we had seen on other tours, he had a new piece of information for each one.

Interesting walk that showed us beautiful places around the Louvre that we wouldn't have discovered on our own. The walk wasn't too far either, so it's a good choice for those with children or people with more limited mobility.
