As well as visiting the places you most want to see, stop by local spots and places of interest along the way that your host recommends to get an authentic insight into local life in Paris.

What To Expect 

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality, tastes and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do and eat. 

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Although you will see well-known sights, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things, and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.

Fantastic and friendly!

Marie was absolutely wonderful. She was very flexible in helping me organise itineraries for several tours I booked through City Unscripted. She was always very prepared and full of many suggestions and enthusiastic about showing me around Paris. Marie even helped me with practising some French! I would highly recommend Marie. Thanks for making my stay in Paris wonderful!

A fantastic experience

Being new to Paris and to this type of tour guiding, Marie was very friendly and 'real'. My partner and I experienced and were shown Marie's recommendations such as: • Boulangerie (bakery) Moulin de La Vierge, rue Sainte Dominique. We ate a delicious "chouquette". Thanks again! • Place de la Bastille • Coulée Verte René Dumont (the green splash

A great day in Paris with an awesome person

My guided day with Myriam was above and beyond what I was expecting! I had a two day layover in Paris and thought it would be nicer to see the city one of the days with another person who knew the area. Going with Myriam was such a good idea :) The day was so relaxed, very easy to change plans based on what I was feeling like doing, because it wasn't a preset tour. We went to the Rodin Museum, a wine tasting , and finished up the day with wine and cheese by the river. When I was first debating whether to spend the money on a guided tour, I was thinking that I could easily look up information on both of these things and navigate to them, no problem - without paying for a guide. That is true. But what Myriam added wasn't a list of names, dates, and interesting tidbits, but rather a sense Paris and France through the eyes of a local. It wasn't facts about Rodin that were added, we can look those up online, it was the discussions about current happenings in France, the culture, the social and political influences of the past and present that only the people living there can really have the best feel of. Our conversations were wonderful, intriguing, and thought provoking in ways that touring a city with your nose in Wikipedia facts just can't be. I couldn't more highly recommend seeing the city this way, and I couldn't more highly recommend Myriam!

Wonderful day in Paris!

I had a truly incredible time with Marie in Paris. She created several possible itineraries based on my interests. She was totally prepared, thoughtful, and truly made the day special. The unique thing about this experience was that I was with a local who knew the city well and could plan a wonderful day but, also, it was like meeting a new friend. Marie’s goal was making the day memorable for me. Yes, she was totally prepared and ready with suggestions, but she was also flexible, provided plenty of options, and I never felt like it was just a job for her. She truly seemed to enjoy the day as much as I did. I will absolutely use CityUnscripted again and look forward to booking another tour with Marie in the future!
