Paris Walks have experienced professional guides who speak multiple languages. Be assured of a detailed sightseeing itinerary and do book well in advance as these tours are very popular with the tourists.
I took their Paris Chocolate Tour this week. The tour sounded intriguing when I first learned about it online. It was off the beaten path of most tours and gave those of us who've visited Paris several times (this was my 5th trip) a new layer to discover, so to speak. I also highly recommend it for visitors who are seeking a more personalized tour of the history of Paris and chocolate. Educational, friendly, entertaining, absolutely delicious tastings at the finest chocolatiers. Totally worth the 25 Euros (despite the low American exchange rate). Plus, buying the best quality chocolates at each stop was a good way to acquire gifts for friends and family (although the chocolates may not actually get distributed but consumed by myself). I just wished I had time to participate in their other tours before I left, which I am confident are of the same quality. A big shout-out to our lovely American tour guide Iris! You're the best!
My husband and I went on a getaway to Paris (without the kids!) and did a couple of Paris Walks tours at the recommendation of my sister who lives in Paris. She has done all the English-speaking walking tours and definitely thinks this is the best company. We did Marais Circuit 2 with Chris as the guide and it was exceptional. We also did The Two Islands which was good but it rained so bring an umbrella for each person. The worst part of Paris Walks is the out-of-date and terrible website. It doesn't accuately reflect the high-quality of the company, and unfortately it's the main tool that a tourist would use ahead of time to decide whether to participate in a walk. Do it, and have a great time. :)
PS. My sister says the Chocolate tour is the BEST... only offered once a month and a little more expensive but worth it!
Paris Walks, the best way to see and learn about Pares
By A Yahoo Contributor, 7/20/07
Every time we visit Paris we plan one or two walks on our schedule. The guides really know their subjects but are definately not boring. Your learn about things that aren't in the guide books. You may be lucky enough to have one of the owners, Peter and Oriel Caine as your guide. They are the authors of "Paris Then and Now".
The walks are definately worth the time (Approx. 2 hrs.) and the cost. The nice thing about the walks is that for most you don't have to schedule or pay in advance. You arrive at the appointed Metro station on time, pay the fee (which in my opinion is very reasonabl)and off you go for an infomative tour.
I have reccomeded Paris Walks to many people visiting Paris for the first or many times.
