About your guide
Urban Adventures are for those who want to get away from the tourist crowds and really connect with a city, with a local by their side. The experience can be as short as a couple of hours, or as long as a whole day, but in every case our Urban Adventures tours take travellers to interesting places to experience local culture and see what makes a place unique. Join us for the Best. Day. Ever.
Here’s the plan…
You’ll be heading to the fashionable and trendy district of Marais for a gourmet tour with added toppings of historical stories and views of stunning architecture for good measure.
Your guide will meet you outside Notre Dame Cathedral before taking you into the Marais district. You’ll see significant sites of historical interest, hear stories and take in tastings as you go. You’ll walk through the tangled, narrow lanes, where you’ll get a feel for this important area of the city. You’ll stop off at a bakery for a tasty pastry. Then taking in one of Paris’s oldest streets, where a thriving gay scene can be found. There's a reason this is one of Paris’s trendiest areas, and you'll soon see why. You’ll taste a delicious macaron and then stop off at a local wine bar to sample some local liquor or wine and cheese.
Your tour will end near an area where you’ll find bars and restaurants. So after your farewells and with the evening is still young, it'll be time to keep the party going in the city of lights.
