Traveler Tips

We were there early, so we had lots of nice picture opportunities, so,if,you can, get there early before it’s too crowded.
This is a perfect tour if you are unfamiliar with Paris.
It was an all-day walking tour, so make sure you are up for a long day!

Full day sightseeing that really packs it in
Joanna_D, Sept 2023
While no one can change the forecast, our guide Ramona made the best of a very wet rainy day! She was always upbeat, possessed great knowledge and was very funny. Some guests were a bit lackadaisical and slowed us down, but she kept the group moving as best she could. Her descriptions were very detailed and colorful. She had to shepherd 11 people on the Metro, a brave task!! I would definitely recommend Ramona as tour guide anywhere in Paris. We really filled the one day tour with so many destinations, from Sacre Coeur, to Sorbonne, to Musee d'Orsay, Notre Dame, Eiffel tower, and Seine river cruise.
Very interesting Knowledgeable and entertaining
Yvonne_K, Sept 2023
Visited Basilica of Sacre Coeur Saw beautiful ceiling. Visited little cafe in Montmartre. Heard theories of name very humorous Saw Notre Dame Interesting tour of Musee d'Dorsey Guide very knowledgeable of French History and development of genres of art. Very entertaining Beautiful view of city from Eiffel Tower Very pleasant cruise on the River Seine. Thank you
Wonderful day

Great Tour
Jennifer_R, Aug 2023
Adam was an amazing guide! We learned so much and really enjoyed the tour! He had so much knowledge and history to share, we could not have had a better experience!
Thomas_H, Jul 2023
montmartre, d'Orsay. our tour guide was great. she was knowledgeable and funny kept us going and on time and also had needed breaks
Interesting & Fun
CraigA_M, Jul 2023
Excellent tour guide. Truly knew her information and very passionate. Was a very good tour, but spent too much time in Musee d’Orsay. Would have preferred to stroll by the Louvre pyramid and other nearby sites.
Great for history/art buffs, not for everyone
Rachael_R, Jun 2023
Pros: Our guide was extremely factually knowledgeable about every aspect of the tour. It would be a wonderful experience for adults with a deeper interest in the history of the landmarks and art. However, I would not recommend this tour for families or older adults with any mobility concerns or for those that want a more holistic view into Paris and it's people. Cons: We received so much factual information-- too much-- especially when walking with the headsets. It was difficult to hear and since it was being narrated while moving, very difficult to follow along. It became background noise. We were originally supposed to go to the Louvre when we registered, but the itinerary changed to the Musee D'Orsay sometime leading up to the tour. Ok, but we were never made aware. My biggest issue-- we began at 9. Had a stop for a snack around 10:30 and did not have lunch until 3pm. At no point were we given a 5-10 minute break to buy water or take pictures. You just fit it in as you were listening and/or walking. I would also have appreciated if our guide would have introduced himself and told us a little about his experience and why he enjoyed giving the your etc. It all felt a little stilted and awkward. Tons of information with little personalization or connection. I have gone on many tours in different cities and for me, this one fell flat for a LOT of money. It lacked engagement and interaction which, for me, are the best parts of getting to know a new city with a local. Perhaps I am not the target audience, but others should be made aware prior to committing to an entire day in Paris.
Show up at the meet point at 9am -- or lose 100% of your money.
Laila_B, Jun 2023
Our flight was delayed by 24 hours and so we were unable to meet this tour at 9am on the designated day. I called Viator in advance several times to see if A) we could get a refund (answer: no) or B) Could I meet the guide at the end of the day at the Eiffel Tower to collect my admission tickets and also the Seine River Cruise tickets (family of 4). I called and talked to service agents who said they would attempt to reach the actual guide about meeting at the 1/2 way point of the tour or meeting at the Eiffel Tower at the end -- and they promised to get back to me but no one ever did. I am devastated about this as the tour cost us $698 USD and because of a flight cancellation, we lost all of that money.

Lovely tour and would book again. The Montmarte section was especially fun, as it was easy to hear and pleasant to be outside.
Best tour guide ever!

Adam was our tour guide. He was very informative, and probably the best tour guide we’ve ever had. Fun, entertaining, knowledgeable and charismatic. Thank you.

Brian_W, May 2023
The guide, Carolina, was very knowledgeable. In particular she told the story of the art movements through the Orsay in a very compelling fashion.
Our tour was cancelled...
Glen_W, Apr 2023
Our tour was cancelled the day prior as the guide called in sick. No other tour involving the Eiffel Tower available by the tour operator. They have arranged for a full refund and provided an additional tour (walking food and wine tour) complimentary.

Fantastic time with Adam in Paris
Jeffrey_N, Apr 2023
Our family was so thankful to have Adam showing us around Paris yesterday afternoon. He was so kind, funny, and knowledgeable that it truly made his tour a once in a lifetime experience. We can't recommend Adam enough!
Worth being out in the cold.

Adam’s the best guide!!! Very informative and entertaining. He more than made up for the very cold, rainy and windy weather.
Best tour guide
Hannah_O, Mar 2023
Recommended to tourists who have very limited time in the city of lights but would like to literally experience Paris in a day. Our guide, Daniel is very knowledgeable, and a lot of fun, too! The weather wasn’t as great on the day of our tour but he handled it like a pro and aced in giving us a very informative yet entertaining tour around the famous sights in the city.
Response from Host, Mar 2023

Paris in a day
Celeste_T, Jan 2023
Amazing way to see Paris in a day. You get to see all of the Parisian highlights. Our tour guide made it fun and gave great recommendations of other places to visit during our time.

Dear Celeste_T, We are so glad that you enjoyed your time with us in Paris. Thank you for your honest feedback. We hope to welcome you on other Walks tours in the future! Kind Regards, Julia
Great tour with couple room for improvement
Freddy_T, Dec 2022
Amazing tour guide, great tour, got a log done in one day. Just two pieces of feedback. Tour guide took us to a cafe for breakfast at 10. It wasn’t included in the tour and we had to pay ourselves. I wish we had free time to walk around and buy souvenirs, because I already had breakfast. Also there were long stretches of the tour without access to washrooms. The tour could have planned for washroom breaks or warned us if there won’t be washroom for awhile
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Dear Freddy_T Thank you for taking the time to provide your recommendations. I have shared your suggestions with our local tea, so they can use this information for our future tours. All the best, Julia
