About me

We Loved Le Marais!

Alexandra was the best! She was friendly and knowledgeable and really fun to hang out with. And she made it feel like we were just hanging out with a friend in Paris. She took us to get a bunch of different pastries, and we finished with wine and cheese and pate. The weather was dreadful (very cold and rainy) but Alex was delightful.

Guide and Tour were excellent

Alexandra was an excellent tour guide who met all are expectations. A great overview of this area personalized to our tastes. She recommended restaurants and other sites to come back to on our own. City Unscripted is a great way to tour and it was just the two of us. Highly recommend.

Tour de Paris

Alexandra spent a half a day with me showing me places and areas in Paris I never would have discovered myself. At my request she did the tour in French (she is completely fluent in both English and French). It was so cool to get a glimpse into the real Paris and "la vie des jeunesses" as opposed to the over touristed areas. Later I was talking to some other americans who were in Paris the same day I was. They said Paris was overrun with tourists and there was a 2 hour wait just to get tickets to the Louvre. It must have been a different city that we saw. I don't recall seeing a single other tourist all day with Alexandra. Merci pour une journee tres intersante, Alexandra

Nice walk with our guide Alexandra.

The only problem we had were closed metro lines through centre due to demonstrations, so it took us time to get to Montmartre. Champs Élysées were also closed for tourist walks.

Perfect tour with an experienced guide

exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to learn about the Le Marias area: history, architecture, development, Jewish impact, and culture’. Francois provided all of that along with insights and visits to cheese, wine, chocolate, clothing and perfume shops and he even stopped at several restaurants to decode menus for us. He explained the orientation of the Le Maris area and told us which metro and bus stops to use to explore Paris from our location. This was so very helpful for the balance of our week. Francois is an experience and knowledgeable Parisian guide of French food, wine, culture and history. ‘Perfect ‘ as my wife would say. Thank you, Francois.

Explore eclectic Montmartre, Paris

We had a fantastic morning touring Montmartre with Hristo. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He chose a very interesting route and showed us famous site and lovely local parks as well as the amazing Sacre Coeur. And he gave us excellent suggestions for other parts of Paris to explore as well as a great lunch recommendation. Very fun.
