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

Your local will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other areas of the city that you will love and revealing other hidden gems that they know you’ll love. 


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.

A Fabulous Day in Paris!

If you are looking for an awesome experience, request Marie as your guide for a marvelous day touring the sites of Paris. The one-on-one experience is absolutely fantastic! Marie is the consummate professional and takes the time to discuss with you what it is you want to see and do. She customizes the tour to fit your requests. Marie is knowledgeable, personable and very easy going. She is an absolute pleasure! After our tour, Marie took the time to follow-up via email to offer additional suggestions and helpful insights that would make our visit to Paris more enjoyable. Marie made our visit to Paris one that both of us will always remember. We hope to return to visit soon.

Myriam is awesome!

We had the best time with Myriam in Paris! It was like spending the day with an old friend. She was so flexible and gracious to help us meet all of our wishlist items! She truly made it all about us with no personal agenda at all. We will definitely call her again when we return to London!!

Amazing time in Paris

Loli exceeded our expectations and went above & beyond. Our flight was delayed & I thought we were going to miss the tour, however Loli was willing to meet us three hours later than scheduled. In a minimum amount of time she took us all over Paris! We were able to see way more than we expected. Loli was energetic, engaging, kind, accommodating & knowledgeable! Next time I visit Paris I hope she is still offering tours because I would book again! We loved our experience in Paris because of her.
