The itinerary

Not unlike having your own personal concierge, your guide comes to your Parisian residence, either in your hotel lobby or inside your apartment. And because we know the quickest way to your heart, your guide will bring a selection of French snacks to devour as you sit down for an informative chat.

Your guide will demystify a map of Paris, pointing out interesting neighborhoods and sights worth seeing. According to your interests we can provide you with a list of favorite cafés, restaurants, shopping locations, museums…anything you’re on the lookout for.

You’ll also get a lesson on navigating the city: from taxis to the bike rental system and of course the metro. You’ll find out how Parisians handle everyday situations like tipping, dealing with moody waiters, avoiding pickpockets, and sidestepping crowds at popular attractions.

You’ll find out which riverbanks offer the best picnic views, where the classic bistros are, how to find the best cappuccino in town, and more. We can even teach you a few French phrases for ordering at a restaurant or asking for the check.

After your Paris briefing you’ll be ready to step into the glamorous shoes of a Parisian local and strut your stuff as you and your guide head out to explore your neighborhood. You’ll learn the difference between a bistro and a brasserie, or which type of baguette you should buy for example. You’ll also get a quick hands-on tutorial in a nearby metro station. By the end you’ll be more than ready to tackle this beautiful city!
