Meet your private guide at the Luxembourg Gardens to begin your walking tour of Paris like a local. Make your way along the streets of the Latin Quarter, passing by the Sorbonne, to reach the Seine, which you'll cross via Pont St-Louis and Pont Marie.

Then pass by Bibliothèque Forney, Village St-Paul, and Place de Voges before checking out Merci, a concept store that sells stylish home goods and accessories. Continue to an organic boulangerie (bakery) for a tasting, and then visit a vintage shop on Rue Oberkampf and a local bookshop. Stop by one of Paris' oldest cafes for a cup of coffee before walking over to Place de Republique and the Canal St. Martin. Your tour ends at your last stop, a popular bar in the Oberkampf where you can enjoy a drink among locals, if you wish (own expense).

During your experience, you'll hear personal anecdotes from your guide, who shares what typical life in Paris is like, from shopping to relaxing in the park to finding the perfect croissant. Keep your eyes open along the way for sightings of street art and bohemian-chic street fashion.

Bassel a lovely host who looked after my parents

I booked a With Locals tour with Bassel for my parents, who were visiting Paris for the first time and were a little nervous. They loved the tour with Bassel who looked after them extremely well. Both thought he was a 'lovely young man'.
