  • Shannon was amazing. It was a great introduction to Paris. It really helped me get orientated to the city.

  • The Walking Tour of Paris led by Lavanya was a tremendous introduction to the city. We began at Pompidou Center where we had a top floor view of the city and wandered through the Marais neighborhood before ending on the Left Bank. Along the way we enjoyed a Macaron. Lavanya pointed out other restaurants to try which we did later in our trip. She presented the story of the city in an interesting and accessible way. She was very knowledgeable and answered our many questions. We heartily recommend the Welcome to Paris Walking Tour with Macaron Tasting, particularly with Lavanya as guide.

  • I highly recommend the Welcome to Paris tour, especially for first time visitors or solo travelers such as myself. My tour guide, Shannon, provided a very thorough overview of Paris and the panoramic views from the Pompidou Center helped to orient me to the layout of the city. I enjoyed walking through some of the oldest neighborhoods and the brief stops at the iconic landmarks. Shannon really made the tour interesting and I left wanting to learn more about French culture and history when I returned home. She also gave excellent recommendations on cafes and brasseries, macarons and ice cream. You won and #39;t be disappointed with this tour.

  • We had a fantastic tutor guide that was fun, smart, kind, informative, and great with history! I would recommend Adam and Walks to all that want to get to know the city and feel like a local.
