You’ll meet your guide at Place Colette before making your way to the first tucked away gem of the day, the neo classical Galerie Véro-Dodat. This classy & graphic walkway adorned with original gas lamp fixtures, wood panelling and marble floor will set the mood right off the bat.
You’ll then enter the world of the Palais Royal. After learning about the palace’s scandalous & glamourous history, you’ll be taken through the gardens and the covered arcades that Philippe d'Orléans created to satisfy the nobles Parisians libertine way of life. From there the Palais Royal’s gardens will be a treat for the eyes with colourful flower beds, arcaded walkways, and rows of linden trees.
Your exploration continues at the Galerie Vivienne and Passage Choiseul. A walk past Napoleon’s former stock exchange building will bring you to a historic candy shop with ties to Marie Antoinette. You can still buy her favorite chocolates today!
The Passage des Panoramas will offer yet another glimpse into Paris’s past in a cozy cacophony of old stamps and postcards, bistros, ethnic eateries, and plenty of historic charm. This will be followed by the Passage Jouffroy known for its unique window displays, its tea room, and the Hotel Chopin where the discreet composer often spent time with a very special French lady.
Romain was AMAZING!!! I will 100% be recommending him to our friends! Our Louvre tour was one of my kids favorite things we did and they said it was because of Romain.
Highly recommend. Private tour is a great way to get more personalized insights on Paris history. Guide was very knowledgeable. Will definitely use again.
We have done several tours with Localers and they are definitely worth the money! We are pretty independent travelers, but there is no substitute for local knowledge. Localers has the best guides!
I did 2 tours with Localers and would enthusiastically do more when I return to Paris. The main reason is the quality of the tours themselves, the fact they are authentic experiences, and you learn so much!
