Guides in Paris

Paris has a highly developed transport infrastructure and for that reason, you don’t need much for your day-to-day survival – fortunately! Even so, it might be a good idea to think about local tours in the company of our hosts if you’d like to get the very best out of every one of your precious minutes in the city. There are tons of things to do in Paris, so ask your local private guide about all the options.

Seeing the unique in Paris

Paris is not short of tours. You can just attach yourself on the back of one of the colorless mass tourist groups as they trundle around the big obvious city-center sights like the Eiffel Tower. Maybe you’ll also get very lucky and find that the guide is, actually, French even if not a local. However, as any Parisian will tell you, this city is not just about the top 3-4 household name sights. Anybody can visit those. Rather it’s about history, byways, hidden gems and a unique life experience. Nobody who is an outsider can conduct tours around that aspect of Paris. That is the job of a local specialist and one who has lived and breathed the city over an extended period. If you’ve lived here for years and the city has become part of your DNA then you can really help others to explore it. Otherwise, Paris exploration becomes a matter of chance and compromise. If you’d like to remove chance from your time in Paris and just aren’t willing to settle for the ‘one size fits all’ tourist experience, then it’s worth considering a local guide.

Avoid wasting time in Paris

If you’re on an extended visit to Paris, perhaps running into months, then you can afford to spend time finding out how things work. You may get your fingers burned a few times and waste time and money but perhaps that’s no big deal for you if you’re in ‘discovery mode’ and have time to spare. However, if your holiday visit is shorter, you just won’t want to waste time finding out the hard way what’s not worth seeing, too expensive or a tourist trap. You’ll want to cut to the chase immediately and see the real Paris from day-1. That’s what the Withlocals experience delivers – getting right to the heart of Paris immediately.

Foodie Montmartre Private Tour

We wanted to get a taste of Paris and get a little more insight to the Montmartre area and signed up for a walking, food tour managed through Withlocals. We selected Mischa and she was great! She is an artist herself, so really understood the area and its significance and shared her thoughts on the culture and stories of the great artists that walked the streets and lived in this area. Unfortunately, we could only do our tour on a Monday, so some of her favorite spots were closed, but she found great alternatives and we loved every stop we made. This was an outstanding tour and Mischa was great!

Parisian Kickstart Tour with a Local

Murilo took my daughter and myself on an amazing 2 hour walking tour of Paris. He showed us all the major sites using uncrowded shortcuts that only a local would know. He was very informative and was able to answer all of our questions. I would definitely book another tour with him.

French Wine Tasting with a Wine Expert

Wonderful experience! Michel is very knowledgeable and passionate about french wine. We had a wonderful evening learning about the different varietals and wine making regions of France, and of course sampling plenty of delicious wine. He is an enormous fund of information.
One of the highlights of our entire vacation. Would highly recommend to anyone interested for a fantastic night of education and wine!
