Tour description

Welcome to the only tour in Paris where you tour the historic center and at the same time discover the legends of the city!

Yes as you hear it. We will do 2 tours in 1. Historical Paris for those who visit us for the first time + an Urban Legends tour of the city of lights.

We start at the Place du Carrousel right in front of the iconic glass pyramid of the Louvre.

From there, we will tour the courtyard of Napoleon and the square courtyard of the Louvre Palace to go step by step through stories, cultural data and even historical gossip to the embryo of the ancient city of Lutetia (as Paris was called). Walking along the right edge of the Seine River, we will enjoy a panoramic view of the Tower of Saint Jaques, The Concierge and the Hotel de Ville.

The pretext of this tour is to discover the history and legends of what was the city of light in its beginnings, while we enjoy the unique views offered by the oldest area of ​​the city.

We also do the route in reverse of the other tours to end in the city center, where you will have many options such as restaurants, shops, nightlife venues and almost all the metro lines to continue enjoying Paris.

But pay attention!!! Of all the legends that we are going to tell you, one is false. Will you be able to discover it?

Come with us!

El tour es bueno, y la ventaja es que era un grupo pequeño. El único problema es que a veces el guía no se escuchaba muy bien, pero en general estuvo bien

We arrived 15 mins before the tour and messaged the guru that were there waiting for him 5 mins before the start. 10 mins later I messaged him again to find out if he was coming. 30 mins after the start time I got a message saying that we missed the tour and it was too late to change it. Apparently on our group of 3 signed up to do the tour so he didn’t bother coming. Don’t bother to book this. We made sure we were there early and waited a full 30 mins at the exact allocates meeting point.
