Paris Landmarks Tour: Must sees and Hidden Gems around them

Duration: 1h and 30min
Languages: English
Registered on December 10, 2019

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!

Paris is huge! Going on a walking tour is a daunting task. Our guide made us feel welcome, taught us a lot about the main attractions while also including incredible stories and gems that brought the city to life. I really enjoyed my time and felt like I learned a lot about this vibrant city.

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!
