Scout out Paris’ cultural gems and tantalizing treats on a walking tour of the city. Led by a friendly local guide, the 3-hour tour introduces you to the secret places that tourist maps miss, like an arcade that offers views into the Louvre Museum and a panoramic vantage point at the Pompidou. Discover some of the capital's best macaroons, and visit one of the locals’ favorite markets to sample artisan cheeses.

Numbers are limited to 12 on this small-group tour, ensuring personalized attention from a guide.

Meet your guide by Place de la Concorde in central Paris, and then set off on your 3-hour walking tour, exploring the grand boulevards around the 8th arrondissement. Luxury and elegance abound in the area, and as you walk your guide will point out examples of beautiful Belle Époque architecture.

Stop at a renowned food shop to sample one of the capital’s finest macaroons – mini-meringues sandwiched together with cream. The brightly colored, melt-in-the-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.

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 or slivers of Brie. If you want to buy some cheese, spend some time browsing the stores at leisure.

Finally, take a stroll to Le Marais, a historical neighborhood full of trendy cafes and vintage boutiques – all exuding bohemian charm. The area is popular with art lovers, and your guide will talk to you about the popular galleries in the area that many flock to see. Wander through the narrow streets into the district of Beauborg, and then stop at the Pompidou, Paris’ leading contemporary art gallery. Climb to the top of the building and soak up the panoramic views of the capital; it’s a fitting finale to your tour of Paris’ best-kept secrets.
