About your guide 

For Meeting the French, touring the Eiffel tower is 'old school'. They don't herd you onto a bus and have you driven to the famous sights. Oh no, they focus on intimate and original experiences which celebrate the French lifestyle and culture, helping you to see the real Paris. The city they call home.

Here’s the plan…  

You’ll meet up with your guide at Sentier Metro station, and from there you’ll head into the Marais district, an area of great shops, fabulous restaurants and chic boutiques. And the thriving area of the gay community.

Your knowledgeable guide will show you places that have helped to shape this area. The famous sites, the monuments and historical architecture. Completing your tour with a visit to a local bakery for a much-deserved snack.  

After your tour ends, there's no doubting you will want to return to the experience the vibrant places and unique atmosphere you discovered.
