Overview
From its cobblestoned side streets to boutique shops and hidden arcades, Paris is packed with must-see areas that a typical tour won't cover. Go off-the-beaten-path with this guided tour, where you find your way to a few of Paris' hidden gems. As you stroll, see iconic Paris attractions—like the Louvre Museum and the Eiffel Tower—while taking breaks in artisanal food shops, strolling through verdant gardens, and marveling at Renaissance-era architecture.

Emilie was our wonderful guide! this is a delightful and insightful walking tour around the inner and unknown Paris, with the addition of Macarons, which were unbelivably delicious, and cheese tasting with a fresh baguette. Emilie was just so charming, with a ready smile and
