What you'll do
In these charming and multicultural neighbourhoods, you'll discover both Montmartre’s classic postcard aesthetic and the more off the beaten path, artistic neighbourhood of Clignancourt where most tourists don’t venture.
Follow your Local Host as they lead you through the labyrinth of streets to experience life in Paris like a local. From cheap to gourmet food, from high-end boutiques to unpretentious shops and marché aux puces, sophisticated pastries shops to tiny cafes and everyday roadside markets, the 18th has it all!
Get to you know your Local Host, and they’ll be able to recommend spots they know you’ll love, so you can eat, drink, shop and party like a local during your trip.
What to expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality 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.
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 the main attractions in the area, 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.

See Paris through the eyes of a local host.
My mom, my sister and I saw Paris with Marie as our tour guide. We have no regrets whatsoever. We had a wonderful time with Marie. She was friendly, easy-going, sociable and so accommodating. She communicated with us about what we wanted to do. She gave us recommendations. And she planned out our itinerary. We walked the cobblestones of Monmarte and ate authentic French cuisine like a true local. She enlightened us with French history as we toured each monument. It was a day well spent. Marie is a very knowledgeable and fun tour guide. We highly recommend her.

Perfect introduction to Montmartre
CityUnscripted was the only company to ask for details in advance of what my husband and I wanted to see, the purpose of our wanting a local guide experience and a bit about ourselves. This attention to detail allowed us to get everything we wanted from our 3-hr. tour. Instead of wanting to hit all the area highlights, we wanted to have someone show us how to get our bearings, navigate the Metro and recommendations on ordering and tipping. Marc was able to meet us in our hotel lobby and get us oriented plus see area highlights. Getting his perspective on this area improved our visit tremendously. Marc obviously had prepared based on my response to CityUnscripted questions and we could not have been more pleased. We will use this service in the future.
