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.
This tour is all about unwinding and relaxing. The first portion includes a brief walking tour that will include historical anecdotes, fun facts, and secret addresses that your guide keeps close to the vest!
A highlight of the walking portion will be a look at the shopping arcades of the 19th century. These “covered passages” are a rare vestige of Old World Paris that are not to be missed. The Galeries Véro-Dodat, Vivienne, and Colbert are sure to be memorable experiences. Your guide will also tip you off to worthwhile restaurants, wine bars and food shops in the area.
After this charming stroll your guide will buy you a drink of your choice, which you’ll take into the beautiful enclosed area of the Palais Royal. A couple of minutes is all it takes to learn the simple rules of pétanque, and then it’ll be time to put your game face on. Guys vs. girls? Kids against the adults? Eternal glory awaits whichever team gets to 13 points first!
Kick back, relax, toss your boules and sip your drink – that’s all! You can forget about the hectic sightseeing schedule and congratulate yourself on finally doing it: you’re one of the locals now!
