Knowing Paris inside-out comes with years of exploring, but above all a passion for discovering all the magic that a city has to offer. Our city guides are selected for their insatiable love for Paris, and their desire to share it with our visitors. Leaving no stone unturned, our guides are always ready to go the extra mile to ensure that those who explore with them get to discover the Paris that truly makes them tick.
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!
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!
