Paris can be overwhelming with its sheer amount of landmarks, museums, galleries, history... That's where we come in! If you're struggling to choose where to go, or how to schedule your visit, try one of our curated walking trails, and learn about the history of Paris on the way.
Our tours visit some of the most historic and beautiful areas in Paris, taking you from the Roman era to Renaissance palaces all the way up to milestones of contemporary art and design.
In the Latin Quarter tour, we take you to the Arènes de Lutece, one of the best-preserved Roman sites still standing in Paris. The Arena was built in the 1st century A.D. and was used for gladiator matches and other Roman entertainment, before it was lost to time under rubble and other buildings. Discovered in the 19th century during the construction of Rue Monge in the 5th arrondissement, it was preserved thanks to the tireless commitment of activists such as Victor Hugo and is now a park and open-air performance space. It's the perfect place to take a book or play a game of petanque.
We also take you to several sites associated with the French Revolution, including the Pantheon, which was intended originally to be a church, but during the Revolution it became a mausoleum for famous citizens. In 2021, Josephine Baker was officially memorialised in the Pantheon, joining others such as Marie Curie, Alexandre Dumas and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. You'll also visit Saint-Germain-des-Prés, home to revolutionaries like Danton, Desmoulins, and the spot where the first guillotine was made.
The Latin Quarter is known for being a literary hub, full of beautiful bookshops (including the very famous Shakespeare & Company), elegant parks and romantic river views. Let us show you around, letting you in on local favourites and taking you out of the guidebook tourist traps.
In the Right Bank tour, we walk you through the Jardin de Tuilleries and the Louvre complex, visiting the remains of the old Tuileries palace (can you imagine - the Louvre may seem huge to us today, but there used to be another palace just oppsite it), the various works of art and statues (including several by Rodin) that are scattered around the area, and to the Pyramide du Louvre and the area underneath the museum known as the 'Carrousel du Louvre'. You'll also visit some of the 'passages couverts', the famous covered passages that each have their own personality and style - for example, Galerie Colbert is known s the most cultured passage in the city since it's home to the Institut National d'Histoire de l'Art and the Institut National du Patriomoine, while Galerie Vivienne is one of the most beautiful and Instagram-friendly of them all.
Our tour also takes you from the oldest house still standing in Paris (built by Nicolas Flamel, famous for the legends connecting him to the Philosopher's Stone and more recently to Harry Potter), there since the 15th century, to the modern Pompidou Centre, home to modern and contemporary art and previously holding the unenviable title of 'most hated building' in Paris.
The Right Bank is the cultural, administrative and shopping centre of Paris. Let us take you through its main sites, including the unmissables like the Louvre, Hotel de Ville and Pompidou Centre, but also around the romantic side streets, hidden gardens and insider-knowledge cafes on our unique walking trail.
We will also soon be releasing tours that will take you around the beautiful and historic Marais neighbourhood and around the royal city of Versailles, tracing the footsteps of Marie Antoinette herself.
