There is perhaps no better way to see Paris than by taking a long stroll! Join us for a walk along the Seine, where we’ll cover 2000 years of history in just 2.5 hours, and you’ll discover a Paris that you don’t often see in the guidebooks.

Thomas Jefferson once said, “A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty and in the point of life” and who are we to disagree?

Our certified guides are excited to take you on this private tour through the heart of Paris. During the journey, you’ll hear fascinating stories about major figures like Napoleon Bonaparte and Henri IV; visit the Notre Dame Cathedral; wander through the Tuileries; and gaze at the posh Champs Elysées, where the guillotine once stood. Our guides will also share insider tips, Paris’s best-kept secrets and their favorite spots, so that by the end of the tour, you’ll be more than ready to explore the city on your own!
