What you can expect

Paris is more than Eiffel Tour, Louvre or other famous attractions. So let's take an interesting walk in the past and step on the footsteps of the medieval Knight Templars, who more than 800 years ago were the first habitants of the 3rd/4th arrondisement of Paris.

This area has now been transformed into one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Paris filled with exciting shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. It would be hard to guess that Paris had such a fascinating and violent Gothic past. Peel beyond the surface of the glitz and glamour and let us show you all these famous places and events that had forever changed history.

Here is the itinerary and the stops of the tour:
- Meeting point will be at the Metro Temple

- Uncover the buried secrets of the enclosure of the Knight Templars at Rue Gabriel Vicaire, Carreau du Temple and the Mairie du 3eme arrondisement

- Step away from the middle ages into the Renaissance era by visiting the Marche des Enfants Rouges, Armenian Church of Saint Croix and the Hotel de Ville

- Finally we end the tour passing through 2 of the most significant monuments of Paris, the Notre Dame de Paris and find out more about the secrets behind Pont Neuf

Come join me and uncover the history of the area, its inhabitants and explore the other side of Paris, off the tourist track.

Let me know if you want to include any special place, I'm flexible about our itinerary and we can try to accommodate them wherever possible. So let's go!

Hi! My name is Wan and I am a Singaporean who has been calling Paris home for over 4 years now. I started running my own tours after living here for sometime because I wanted to share my experiences of in this amazingly beautiful but often misunderstood city, away from the usual touristy stuff. I was a former physical education teacher and while I still have a strong passion in sports, I would most likely be found wondering the streets of Paris these days discovering and experiencing this amazing city these days. So come join me and explore the city together."
