Know More about this tour

Meet your guide near Paris Pantheon in the afternoon and stroll to vibrant Saint-Germain, a bohemian quarter that weaves through the 6th arrondissement. Poets, musicians and intellectuals throughout the ages have made the neighborhood their home, and the streets are filled with eclectic cafés and book stores that cater to the creative crowds.
Walk through Saint-Germain’s bustling streets, hearing tales of famous ex-residents such as Ernest Hemingway and Jim Morrison along the way, and then wander down to the UNESCO-listed embankments of the Seine River. Stop to enjoy an assiette de charcuterie in an atmospheric wine bar, and feast on a picture-perfect Parisian lunch of decadent cheeses, cured meats and rich pâtés. Wine is available for you to buy at your own expense, if you wish.
Work off your lunch with a walk to the oldest square in Paris – Place Dauphine – for a game of Pétanque. The popular bowling game is played in nearly every town across France, and players of all ages love it! Enjoy a glass of wine while discussing the game with your teammates and guide. Listen carefully: you'll learn the rules and hear tips to knock your opponents’ balls out of the way.
After your game, walk to the Latin Quarter, through St Michel, and take a peek inside Paris’ first English bookstore. Tucked away in one of the area’s medieval houses, the shop is a book lover’s paradise packed to the rafters with literature. Spend some time browsing the shelves and shopping, if you wish.
Enjoy a final walk to Paris' undisputed masterpiece of Gothic architecture: Notre Dame Cathedral. Pose for photos, hear tales of the building’s history, and then bid your guide a fond farewell.

  • Very worthwhile tour of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter. My tour guide, Arthur, went out of his way to make this an extensive review of the neighborhood. He was both friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paris.

  • My husband and I were lucky enough to get a tour guide to ourselves. Tim was great - a wealth of information and an incredibly nice guy to spend the afternoon with. We loved being able to walk the street of Paris, and learn more about the city's incredible history. And ending the tour with bread, cheese, pastis and petonque was perfect.

  • Highly recommended. Vivienne was highly knowledgable, down to earth and dedicated.

  • Our tour was amazing. Arthur was very knowledgeable about the area and a real pleasure to be with.
    Highly recommended the tour

  • Rafael was a good tour guide. He provided a lot of information about the areas we visited and we all had a very interesting conversation with him. The charcuterie sample platter was good too. We did not play a game of petanque, so this should be removed from the description of the tour.

  • Good pace, excellent and knowledgeable guide

  • Very enjoyable tour. Adele was very informative and fun.

  • What fun! An interesting, great way to see these sections of Paris. Our tour guides were great! Highly recommend.

  • We had an absolutely wonderful afternoon exploring Paris with our guide, Adele. As soon as we met her, we knew we would have a great day. We explored hidden streets and sampled local sweets. We can and #39;t wait to go back and visit the area again. Thank you Adele! Beth, Andy and Carmen (the dog).

  • I had a great time on this casual,fun,informative stroll around St. Germain-des-Pres and the Latin Quarter. Our host Arthur was engaging and very nice. We covered a lot of ground but the time flew by. I may even decide to take the tour again next time I'm in Paris.
