Paris Walking Tour: Secret Sites and Hidden Gems
You'll stop at a renowned food shop to sample one of the capital’s finest macarons – mini-meringues sandwiched together with cream.The brightly colored, melt-in-your-mouth treats are ubiquitous around France, and the Parisian shops that sell them hold a prestigious reputation around the world.
Continue walking to the Louvre Museum, an iconic building home to some of the world’s most celebrated art. Amble through an arcade that offers a glimpse into the famous gallery, and then relax in the surrounding gardens as your guide regales you with tales about Paris’ art and culture.
You'll then head to a lively Parisian market to indulge in one of the country’s popular gastronomic pleasures: cheese! Meet some of the friendly traders and sample their wares, trying crumbling chunks of pungent Roquefort and slivers of Brie. There is plenty of free time to stroll the market, if you want to buy some cheese.
Finally, you'll walk to Le Marais, a historical neighborhood full of trendy cafes and vintage boutiques – all exuding bohemian charm. Wander through tucked away Arcades, hidden streets that even locals don't know about, and the narrow streets that speak to Paris' rich medieval history. Finish the tour in the forecourt of Paris’ contemporary art gallery: the Pompidou centre, an incredible example of modern architecture in the heart of medieval Paris, and a fitting finale to this revealing tour of Paris’ best kept secrets.

Very nice experience! Adele is a very friendly guide who will instantly make you feel welcome. We very much enjoyed the cheese and macaron tasting - all in all highly recommended!
This tour was amazing!
It was much better than we expected. Our guide was very good at explaining the history of all the places we visited and we had a great, fun time.
Lots of walking through Paris that I felt like I saw everything that needed to be seen. Would do again or at least recommend to others!
