In the centre of the square by the obelisk you will hear the rich history of Paris' largest square. This is here that the king Louis XVI and the queen Marie-Antoinette got beheaded.

Your Paris city tour continues towards the iconic Louvre, home to some of the world’s most celebrated art. The enigmatic Mona Lisa and gorgeous Venus de Milo both live in this treasure trove of fine art. We won't be stopping in (it can take hours — no, days — to properly explore the grand Louvre!), but we will wander through an arcade that offers a free glimpse into the famous sculpture gallery.

Stop At: Jardin du Palais Royal, 6 rue de Montpensier, 75001 Paris France

Nestled in the Palais Royal, these secret garden are a rare Parisian jewel, absolutely unknown by most tourists. You'll hear the story of their construction and how these peaceful looking garden were the seediest place in Paris until recently.

Stop At: Paroisse Saint-Eustache, 146 rue Rambuteau, 75001 Paris France

One of Paris' biggest church, it is also a very well-kept secret, a fantastic church that most tourists don't know about. You'll have a glance inside that imposing XVIth century building, that once was the church of the nearby merchants.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Rue Montorgueil, 75001 Paris France

Finally we will head to a lively Parisian market to indulge in one of France’s most popular gastronomic pleasures — cheese! Perhaps taste some smooth, mild Brie or sample a slice of pungent Roquefort — known as the ‘King of Cheeses’.

Nice tour. My wife and I were the only ones and we had a very educational tour of numerous sites. Some we have seen before but were treated to more history to help put these sites into context of the history of Paris. Totally recommend it!!

Doine, our tour guide, was fantastic. She had a lot to show us and tell us about the vaious sections of Paris we visited. The Madeline and the Cheese samples were amazing. It was a very good tour. She told us about the Les halles and after the tour we went underground and shopped and ate at several of the stores we visited.
