      The best Paris private tours & experiences with locals

      There’s no better way to explore the City of Lights than with a like-minded local by your side. Our tours with locals in Paris let you experience the city beyond the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Élysées. You won’t miss out on the top attractions, but you might see them from a different perspective – from a secret rooftop or a hidden bar loved by locals. Discover the soul of Paris on tours with locals who can show you what makes the city truly special. Explore the cobbled cafés that serve the best French pastries, the charismatic neighborhoods further from the city center – and get to know the Paris that only reveals itself to the people who call it home.

Your local guide is a walking, talking GPS and Google Translate who can answer any questions you have about navigating the city. Every city is so much more than its top 10 travel list. Our local guides will help you build a deep cultural understanding of Paris and France. By experiencing Paris on our tours with locals, you’ll gain invaluable insight into the city’s unique customs and traditions, getting a beautifully nuanced portrait of its personality in the process.

        Jojo was fun, knowledgeable and easy going. She kept us out of the Paris crowds yet we saw the best parts of Paris. We thoroughly enjoyed or guide!

        My wife and I had a wonderful experience with Elyesse. He was very knowledgeable and designed a walking tour that perfectly met our expectations. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in a custom walking tour of Paris. We were not sure what to expect but he showed up at our hotel on time and was ready to take us on a grand tour of all the sights we were interested in seeing. I think City Unscripted is a fantastic idea and will most definitely use them in the future for our travels.

        Highly recommend City Unscripted for the ease of setting up this private tour of Montmartre. But more impressed with our guide, Clovis. He grew up in the area, very clear speaking English, and picked a fantastic route for us. It was almost as if he already knew that we didn't like crowds and really just wanted a slow paced journey through the area. My family (spouse, 14YO, & 11YO) eventually ran out of steam (aka kid's attention span :-) so Clovis showed us to a restaurant and reminded us to grab an eclair from the childhood bakery (unanimous, BEST EVER!). Fantastic family memory. Thank you Clovis!

        Had a great tour in Paris with a very knowledgeable and nice guide named Roffy. She customized the tour to my interests (local food, non tourist neighborhoods) and she showed me places that I would never found even after coming to Paris for work for over 20 years.
