Hi! We're Claire and Johann. We are Australians who made Paris our home 4 years ago. We've spent countless hours roaming our favourite city and we love recounting its many historical, humourous, romantic, and surreal stories, as well as sharing our favourite spots for Paris treats (did someone say 'pain au chocolat'?). We have created our very own 'Best Bits of Paris' walk.

Where you'll be

Where we'll meet
Saint Germain des Prés - Metro exit (Metro Line 4)
Paris
We will be walking through Paris and getting the metro together several times to reach sites that are too far to walk. We will be stopping at sights along the way to hear the enchanting stories and history. To give us more time to see all the sights on this tour, we will not be going inside the monuments.

    Very good overview that was worth the price. Would be good to do early on a first trip to Paris to get the big picture, then go to individual sites later for deeper visit. Also good for repeat visitors. This was my 3rd trip to Paris and I learned new things. Claire was excellent. Highly recommended.

    Claire was a great host, she was patient with regards to a couple of interruptions, we walked over 8 miles on winter day and she had great observations about the historical background and the current neighborhood condition's. I really appreciated her approach to being flexible and she helped me find the way back to my hotel! if only I had more time I'd book another tour.
