About the Guru

We are Discover Walks: Europe's #1 for custom and private tours. When you pick a tour, you ask yourself: does it rate high?

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!

Olha 07/17/2021

They just left us, we were a little bit late and lost, we tried to call them several times and wrote in WhatsApp but nobody answered. So we didn’t have any tour as we wanted at the our first day in Paris!

Response from Discover Walks
Dear Olha, I am sorry for your disappointment, and I understand what it means to miss your tour when you have only so much time to spend in Paris. It is true, however, that as this is a group tour, we start ON TIME, so the group doesn't have to wait for any latecomer. We do have a WhatsApp number, you're right. So if you're late, call, and we'll try to guide you to the guide over the phone. But please be punctual. Best, Alexandre
