Walkative was established in 2007 by a group of young enthusiasts who also happened to be licensed tour guides. Today, we operate in 20 cities in countries across all of Europe and beyond, including France, Germany, Poland, Italy, Ukraine and Israel. We have already guided more than 3 million tourists, with more than 350 000 in 2023 only! Despite this growth, we stay true to our values: be local and present the history of our cities in a professional, yet entertaining way, accessible for everybody, regardless their budget. We provide service not only in big, well established places like Berlin, Paris or Krakow, but also smaller, less known, yet no less fascinating locations, like Nice, Toruń or Lublin. We cooperate with highly trained, professional guides providing both engaging tip-based and regular fixed-price tours. And most importantly - we know our cities by heart! Join us and stay Walkative!

Tour description

Join us on a journey through the elegance of Paris, where you'll have the chance to witness some of the most iconic and breathtaking locations in the City of Light. Paris's beauty and
monumentality are truly impressive, and we'll delve into its past during the 19th century, a time of great transformation both socially and architecturally.

On this tour, we'll visit some noteworthy sites, starting with the Church of La Madeleine, originally designed as a temple to honor Napoleon. We'll also see the largest square in Paris, La Concorde, which holds the oldest monument in the city and one of the most
stunning, the Obelisk of Luxor, from ancient Egypt. This spot, marked by the blood of the French Revolution, was renamed "Concorde" in the 19th century to symbolize peace and harmony. Next, we'll stroll along the Champs-Élysées, one of the most fashionable and prestigious addresses in Paris during the 19th century. It's also the site of military parades, including the largest military parade in Europe, held every year on Bastille Day. Along this avenue, we'll admire many grand buildings, including the Grand Palais and Petit Palais, built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900, which are among the architectural jewels of Paris. Our tour will then lead us to the history of The Invalides, originally built as a hospital for wounded soldiers, which became a significant symbol of French military power in the 19th century. Today, it houses Napoleon's tomb, and its impressive gold dome makes it one of the
most beautiful monuments in Paris. Finally, we'll conclude our tour at Pont del Alma, where we'll witness the illuminated Eiffel Tower, the most iconic monument in the city. Built in 1889, this 300-meter-high tower has become a symbol of Paris, and we'll uncover its rich history during our tour.

Jason was professional and navigated the route in rain to protect us from getting wet. The surprise was to see the blinking lights on the Eiffel tower. Highly recommend Jaosn 👌
