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.

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.
If you’re passionate about France’s most famous queen, look no further! After your expert local guide introduces the tour and outlines the itinerary, we’ll retrace the footsteps of Marie Antoinette’s intimate life in Paris.
Although she was lucky enough to live in infinite luxury at Versailles, you’ll understand what happened between the early days of her reign, when she was very popular with the French people, and her last days in the grimmest cell at the Conciergerie during the French Revolution.
Once we get over with the heart breaking part, your guide will lead you towards the heart of Marie Antoinette’s Paris life, and all the dramatic stories everyone wants to hear! The Louvre courtyard is a great location to discuss the royal codes of conduct of the court of France. When Marie Antoinette arrived from Austria at the age of 14, imagine her thoughts discovering her new privileges, but also, her new royal obligations!
Next, and as you walk by the magnificent Place Vendôme and rue Saint-Honoré, where you’ll hear all details about how she unexpectedly became an 18th century international fashion icon and about the controversial diamond necklace affair… that may have something to do with her downfall.
We’ll wrap this tour with a grand finale, and indulge in a delicious slice of Marie Antoinette’s favorite cake in an inspiring place dedicated to her royal highness, where you’ll have time to discuss with your guide the incredible legacy she has left behind.
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!
