What makes Localers’ city tours different?We aim to remove the stress from a first-time Paris visit. In our Welcome to Paris Orientation Tour, we even arrange for your guide to meet you directly at your hotel or apartment, to show you around your neighborhood and teach you to navigate French culture like a pro. Sure you could do Paris by jumping from one monument to the next, but the best part of traveling is getting a taste of the local culture, which is why our adventures take you away from the tourist mob toward a more enriching and memorable experience.
Our guides are passionate local experts: you won’t find part-time Erasmus students leading our tours. Our guides are Parisians or have lived in Paris over a number of years, they don’t just know the history of the city, they live and breath the city every day. So, if you need advice or a simple explanation about French culture, they are there to help. And most importantly, they can point you in the direction of the perfect café or an amazing little French bistro, bien sûr!
Localers has reinvented the classic walking tour Le Paris by Localers is a classic walking tour reinvented. While it takes in some of Paris’s top-class monuments and sites, there will also be a particular focus on lesser- known areas such as Les Halles. Les Halles’ former culinary history as the central Parisian market will be evoked during this tour as participants take part in a delicious food tasting in a local merchant’s shop. This will also be an opportunity to get a feel for the city while you walk its lived-in neighbourhoods.
Our tours are fun: Kick back and relax, your guide won’t overload you with tons of information. Our approach to walking tours has been totally reinvented. We think a historical approach is only part of the picture; we want to complete it by giving you the keys to a local experience. We will show you what the art of French living really means and how to go about experiencing it for yourself.
Our walking tour groups are small in size or totally private: Less is more, especially if you want to hear what your guide is saying. Our Paris City Tour is private to ensure you get the most out of your guide. Groups kept to a minimum means a better quality tour for you and the people on them.
