  • Great tour with a guide who was well-informed about the history of the Covered Passages and well-equipped with interesting stories and details. She went out of her way to show us some quirky features, and interesting shops, and, as we had a small group, personalised it for those of us with an interest in libraries, to include an extra stop at the National Library! I would thoroughly recommend this tour.

  • Well, this was just a gem of a tour. Our guide was a fantastic spirited young man from New York. It was a welcomed break just for a few hours to talk to someone from the US and he was a wealth of knowledge about French history. The covered passages were totally new to us and something that most people never know about. It was like being in on a wonderful little French secret. In between the passages, we learned about who rolled down this very street in a wagon on her way to her beheading, and all sorts of background on each old, old building that still stands, and is still used. We were made to appreciate what old really means - our 200 year old history in the USA sure doesn't compare with Europe!
    The best thing about this tour is that the tour group is very small and after a short time you feel like you're just buzzing around Paris on foot with friends.

  • This walk was amazing, our guide, even tho’ not 100% was excellent. She gave us so much information and showed us so many beautiful places. We loved this tour.

  • After multiply times in Paris, we did this tour for the first time and it was my group's favorite thing to do. So off the beaten track and very interesting.
