Stop by the spots that are local favourites, like the Jardin du Luxembourg, the Sorbonne and Canal St Martin. 

Enjoy a warm croissant and café au lait at a neighbourhood pavement café if you meet in the morning, or head to a local bar if the evening to enjoy apéro with your local. 

Soak up the street style as you explore alternative areas of Paris, visiting unique concept stores, locally loved markets, clothing boutiques and the épiceries where locals do their shopping.

What To Expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours of booking by email to find out more about your personality and tastes, as well as any dietary requirements so we can assign a like-minded Local Host who will 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 visit well-known eateries and markets in the area, your local will also help you to discover the places, foods, and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make Paris unique.
