From 21st December until 2nd January 2019, Localers will be offering a wonderful Christmas Windows of the Covered Passages tour, ending at the famous Galleries Lafayette Christmas windows display! If you're celebrating Christmas in Paris, book your experience here.

Join our local expert guide and treasure hunter on our 2-hour small group tour to discover a hidden part of the city: the stunning Covered Passages. Frozen in time since the 1800s, these glass-roofed & paved arcades were originally created for the nobles to enjoy a stroll and a little shopping away from the dirt and the rabble of the streets.

Today, Parisians still love to explore them and get lost looking for a hidden brasserie, a one-of-a-kind bookstore, or an offbeat art gallery. Relive those elegant days by discovering the city’s most beautiful Passages! Needless to say, you’ll hit the lovely gardens and courtyards of the Palais Royal, a secret haven for knowledgeable locals that can’t be missed!
