Eiffel Tower district : Food tasting, Invalides and Rodin's gardens
Listen as your guide explains the history of this famous area, which has been home to members of the French upper classes and aristocracy since the 17th century, when it became the new residence of high nobility. Stroll through the beautiful sculpture-filled gardens of the Musée Rodin, crowned by the famous The Thinker statue before discovering the museums and monuments in the area around Les Invalides, many of which relate to France’s military history. Admire the iconic dome of Les Invalides, inside which lies the tomb of Napoleon.
True Paris opens itself up as you saunter down busy main boulevards and intimate side streets where locals shop, meet and go about their daily business. Stop at local producers for three food tastings, such as pastries and cheese, and perhaps enjoy a little conversation with the vendors en route.
Enjoy close-up views of the Eiffel Tower as you wander the open parkland of the Champ de Mars, following your guide down less-trodden paths surrounding the city's most iconic structure.
After three hours discovering the hidden secrets of this popular and attractive part of Paris, your tour concludes near the Champ de Mars.

An excellent tour that I felt really gave insight into the way normal Parisians live, as well as highlighting some of the best things about Paris and France in general. The guide was fantastic and very knowledgable about all of the areas we visited and was more than willing to discuss daily life in France with me we had a great chat about life in France vs the United States where I am from. Highly recommend taking this tour for a balanced look at life in Paris and some beautiful sites as well.
