Fun to walk around the Latin quarter and learn some interesting tidbits of Paris history. The guide was a university student working for tips.

I did a very pleasant walk with Sean around Montmartre. It was a very professional tour and at the same time very relaxed and cheerful. I really liked the fact that we saw some hidden gems, not only the main touristic attractions. Nevertheless, I would have been more happy with more historical stories. There were a lot of anecdotes, very... More

I literally went on every single walking tour that this company offered. We did not have a bad tour guide once. The guides were professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. They are all residents of Paris and know the city very well. I saw people give around five to seven euro for. A tip. We gave the twelve that they suggested and... More

The tours are free and based on just turning up at a certain place/time and looking for a guide in a bright pink waistcoat. There's no pre-booking, and the tours are all undertaken in English. Our guide Vincent was excellent, really engaged with everyone on the tour and made the experience interesting with his enthusiasm and knowledge, not just of... More

We met our guide Eric (a proud Parisian) close to The Moulin Rouge just outside Blanche metro station. Eric then took on us a very entertaining and information packed tour of Montmartre which was also light hearted and amusing. His delivery in English was very good and clear and he also provided some good recommendations. The tour finished at the... More

My boyfriend and I did two tours with Discoverwalks and we enjoyed both of them very much. We were there for the holidays and even on Jan. 1, in freezing cold weather, we had a lot of fun and laughter thanks to our amazing guide. We would do this again anytime!

We had a free afternoon in Paris before heading back on Eurostar to England and opted for the Montmartre tour from the various ones Discover Tours had. What a wonderful way to see and get a lot of history about a famous district of the city. It started at the Moulin Rouge and ended up at the Sacre Coeur two... More

Very interesting tour! Eric is a very smart guide, and gives a lot of good information. Even though this tour only covers the Notre-Dame and its surroundings, he links the stories to other parts of the city, or to movies. His help after the tour was also very useful for the rest of our day. A very big must!

This was awesome!! Sean was great! Booked this with discoverwalks.com. It's free and no advanced booking is required, but suggested if you're a large group. You get to see places that aren't in any of the guide books, and you also learn a little history and hear some funny stories. You also get to see a different side of Paris,... More
