Great people! Customised tours that truly shows you the city.

The team at City Unscripted are super friendly and helpful when I took four tours with them in Paris. I would definitely recommend this especially if you are not familiar with the city, language or culture and need a hand in getting started. Even though I had visited before and speak French at a fair level, I found these trips a highlight and looked forward to my trips each time! I made reservations and corresponded a bunch with Céline. She was great in accomodating my requests and would always go out of her way to assist me. My guide, Marie was outstanding - extremely friendly and fun to hang out with. It was truly as if I had a local friend. She worked hard to get itineraries set up for me, and made sure I got a chance to see the things I wanted to see and things that a local would see. I got to get a great understanding of the French day to day culture including work, leave, pay and a sense of what it would be like to live there. I was even able to test some of my French with Marie! Thanks for everything. Strongly recommended.

Unforgettable Experience

My husband and I had the most wonderful experience with our tour guide, Marie. She had a well thought out plan and provided options at the start and throughout the tour. We wanted to cover a lot of ground, so she made sure we got the most out of our tour. Not only did she do fabulous job navigating the city, she provided interesting facts along the way. She was able to give a more in depth experience by taking us “behind the scenes” of Paris to include the hidden gems and local spots. We did, of course, see the good tourist spots as well. Since our tour was only 3 hours, she continued to help make this a more remarkable trip by providing recommendations on areas and restaurants. We truly couldn’t have had this experience of Paris without her and are so thankful.

It was great

We only had 2 days in Paris and we had a long list of things we wanted to do but just didn't want to waste time figuring out which were the best. So we found City Unscripted and we were assigned to Loli who was fantastic. It was the best way to start our trip and Loli helped us decide what to do for the rest of our time there. We would have ended up missing out on a few of the things we liked most! We will book again on our next trips.
