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.

The Best of Paris on a Unique Ride

Wat een leuke manier om plekjes in Parijs te ontdekken waar geen miljoen toeristen in de rij staan!!! En wat een leuke vent die Julian! Echt een aanrader! Grappig ook hoe je zelf een rijdende attractie bent, iedereen draait om, lacht en zwaait naar je. Te leuk!

Parisian Kickstart Tour with a Local

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour with Wan! She was extremely knowledgeable about Paris and the history of the city. Some of our group were in their 70’s and needed a slow pace, which Wan was very attentive to and made sure everyone had an enjoyable time. We will definitely use Withlocals again!!

Bonjour Paris! - Fun Family Intro Tour

Our family had a tour of Paris on Easter weekend with Adriana. She showed us many of the unknown areas that were very unique with a great explanation of the historical background. We had our 2 small children with us and she was able to tailor the tour for stops when the kids needed a 5 minute break. Adriana was a true professional that focused on our family and made for an enjoyable Saturday. Thanks Adriana!
