See 10+ Top Paris Sights, Fun Guide

Paris, France

Experience hosted by Daniel

  1. 2.5 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

Leave your map behind and follow us, your English showman, who will take you on exploration of the first part of the 30+ top sights tour. You will hear about and possibly meet some the legends of one of Europe’s best-loved cities.

This tour is the first part of my 30+ Paris Top Sights. It is only 2.5hrs long rather than the 5hrs version. Many people asked me to do a smaller walking tour because 5hrs seemed too long. So I have broken my main tour in to 3 parts. If you want to upgrade to the extended version on the day just let us know.

On this part you will:

Start at Metro Anvers and will be taken on a lively stroll through old Montmartre where Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso once lived, going upwards to the Sacre-Coeur and the best panoramic view of the City of Light. The show continues through the winding streets where the stories of the past come to life, then down to the famous Moulin Rouge and on to the Majestic Arc de Triomphe and of course, the shoppers paradise; The Champs élysées where the tour ends.

Again if you decide that you would like to continue on the extended tour and do the next part then just ask.

Other things to note
We will meet outside metro Anvers which is on line 2 (the dark blue line.) Please wear comfy shoes and bring a bottle of water and your camera for all your great shots you'll be taking.

I'm an English Actor and my co-hosts are performers and Artists too. I and have been living and working in Paris for over 9 years now. My co-hosts (also artists) and I are passionate about—and fascinated by the city's history and its great stories of love, revolution, crime (like who stole the Mona Lisa?) Who are the characters that have truly shaped Paris in to what it is today. Using a selection of these great characters I have created a unique tour of the top sights of Paris. My friends and family use me as a human search engine for all things Parisian.

We will take a funicular to see a wonderful city view from high up at the Sacre-Coeur church, and if the queue is short enough we can have a tour inside the sacre-Coeur as well. A trip round old Montmartre where Van Gogh lived, then the Moulin Rouge and other film locations. Also the famous Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées.

    This was a great way to start our stay in Paris. We did the shortened tour as we had arrived that morning and it turned out to be just the right length. Our host, Sophia, was very friendly and engaging. Definitely recommend if this is your first time to Paris.

    Daniel is met zijn aanstekelijk enthousiasme een groot plezier en de perfecte gastheer om jou rond te leiden in Parijs. Met zijn humor en zijn persoonlijke aanpak zorgde hij ervoor dat het een geweldige ervaring was en de tijd vloog. Onze 2 tieners van 14 en 17 jaar, die niet echt een grote interesse hebben voor geschiedenis, vonden de tour het hoogtepunt van onze 4-daagse in Parijs. Oh en een handig extraatje: hij neemt de tijd om ook (gezins)foto's te nemen met jouw GSM en hij is er heel goed in. Een absolute aanrader en meerwaarde als je van plan bent om Parijs te bezoeken. Hij is een Engelsman wat ervoor zorgt dat hij perfect verstaanbaar is in het Engels

    Our tour was conducted by Samantha and we found her to be an excellent guide. I think the way the overall setup of this experience is exceptional. I highly recommend it. First, the value for money is excellent, you get a good 2.5 hour long tour for a very reasonable price. Plus, I was genuinely impressed by the choice of route. The route alternated between busy and not so busy streets of Paris, giving us time to absorb the details as we went on. Moreover its not just those big landmarks that one thinks of on hearing the word Paris, it includes some nice interesting avenues that add to the experience. Second, Samantha expertly balanced the narration and walking times. At no part of the experience did it feel like we walked for too long or stopped for too long and Last, Samantha is a really engaging storyteller. She kept us engrossed for the entire tour and was both approachable as well as made an effort to engage with all of us individually, which was a plus.

    I have never felt so guilty for not giving a tip. The tour was worth more than I expected (but please do not jack up your price so more people can still afford your amazing tours 🤣). I travelled to Paris alone, and in the City of Love, that is not a good thing. But the people I toured with made it memorable nonetheless. My guide Samantha was amazing and she speaks quite a handful of languages. I became friends with the other tourists and that really made the to so special since I rarely make new friends when I travel. Hopefully I didn't annoy my tour guide with my non-stop talking, but she really tried her best to answer my questions. Merci beaucoup a tous Les agradezco mucho.

    This was a great experience, the hosts were well prepared and very interactive even with a big group. I felt very welcomed as I was traveling solo. I would recommend this experience.

    Great tour. Host Andrew was amazing, funny, insightful and very personable. We had a great time, and got to cover a lot of the touristy stuff on our first day. He also was very helpful and willing to give us tips, input and answer any questsions we had.
