Paris running tours with our guide Jean-Charles was fabulous!! He way exceeded our expectations and gave us so much wonderful history and knowledge about this beautiful city. He also gave us lots of information for our current trip and future travels in this beautiful city. We will definitely be back and recommend the tour to our friends. Wonderful!!!

An incredible activity for first time visitors to Paris
Aug 2021
I can't recommend these tours enough! Jean-Charles was an excellent guide in every regard: quick to communicate before and after the trip, well-prepared and knowledgeable, and thoughtful in mapping out our personalized tour of Paris. We booked directly through the company's website and quickly received confirmation of his availability. He then provided us with options at our given tour length (a 5-mile loop beginning and ending at our hotel north of the Arc de Triomphe, or a 5-mile trip ending elsewhere, after which he would provide us with Metro tickets and accompany us back to the hotel). We opted for the latter, because, as he pointed out, it allowed us to see more of the city's charms.
The day of the tour, Jean-Charles arrived early and well-prepared. He brought along a small folio of materials, including a printed copy of our route and neatly tabbed pages with details of the sites we would see. Of particular interest were the historical images, which showed things like past flooding of the Seine and the progression of the Louvre's construction. Jean-Charles also supplied water for the trip, which he carried in his pack.
The tour included both the obvious sites (views of the Eiffel Tour, Arc de Triomphe, Tokyo Palace, banks of the Seine, Alexandre III bridge, Invalides, Orsay Museum, Louvre, Tuileries, Concorde, Champs-Elysées, and Petit and Grand Palais), but also locations like Etats-Unis square, with its statue of Washington and Lafayette. We stopped frequently for his insightful explanations, as well as photos. Jean-Charles was more than generous about taking photos whenever we wanted. Following the tour, he provided a follow-up email with a DropBox link to our photos.
This tour far exceeded my expectations. I had previously taken a similar running tour in Brussels and had general idea of what to expect, but Jean-Charles brought a new level of professionalism and general friendliness. I highly recommend this tour to runners of all experience levels (he is quick to adapt to your pace), and especially to first-time Paris visitors, like me. I can't imagine a better way to be introduced to the city than by running through its streets side-by-side with Jean-Charles.

Best thing I did in Paris.
I learnt more about Paris in the 2 hours of this tour than on my multiple previous visits put together! Jean-Charles puts in an incredible amount of personal care and attention to creating a tour especially for the area of Paris you want to discover. His knowledge is of course amazing but the way he pulls out the tiny details you would otherwise walk/run straight past is wonderful. Highly recommended! Suitable for all running abilities as you stop so often and he runs at your pace.

A Genuine Treat: Learning from a Local (who also loves running!)
Jul 2021
Jean-Charles is the real deal; a Parisian born and bred who loves putting on his running shoes almost as much as he loves his city (which, like all Parisians, is a lot!). I'd already been wandering the streets around Le Marais and the Latin Quarter for a couple of weeks before doing his tour and felt I knew my way around, but Jean-Charles was able to point to something new on every single block. Loads of super interesting anecdotes and cultural snipets, as well as the key facts and stats about the city. Like all true enthusiasts, he loves to share what he's passionate about - which made our tour really engaging and fun. I finished feeling I had been treated to an secret inside view of the city, plus a real passion to learn more. Whether you've been to Paris hundreds of times or it's your first visit, I couldn't recommend Jean-Charles highly enough. Book in, pack your running shoes, and get ready for a real treat!

Thank you so much for this very kind review! I am very happy to have met you, Oliver, to have shared with you the richness of Paris and to know that you want to learn more about it, to have been able to participate in your desire to continue discovering this city. I was also very pleased to discuss with you the similarities or differences with the cities and countries you have visited, such as Bueno Aires, the "Paris del Sur" and its Haussmannian inspiration.

Best way to discover Paris
Oct 2020 • Solo
What a morning! I discovered the Eiffel tower from in so many different perspectives and stories that I love this old lady even more. Jean-Charles is an passionate and kind guide, we run slowly through the city, made stops to enjoy, take pictures and learn about the Eiffel Tower.
This tour, my second with Jean-Charles, was as great as the first. Im amazed with his level of Parisian knowledge and would recommend to all my friends and acquaintances looking for a better way to discover the city of lights

A fun cultural and sporty way to discover Paris
Aug 2020 • Friends
Paris Running Tour runs are the perfect mix of exercise, culture, fun and discoveries. I always learn lots of anecdotes (historical, geographical, cultural) as well as getting a good physical activity. Jean Charles is an experienced runner as well as a knowledgeable guide. I would recommend this to all the people who want to discover Paris in a different way!!!

Probably one of my favorite tourist activities I have elected to do. Jean-Charles was full of fun facts and historical information and was a truly sensational guide, I would recommend jogging through Paris with Jean-Charles to joggers and non-joggers alike. Pace is yours to set and we took our time to enjoy the experience. Merci mille fois Jean-Charles.

Running tour of Paris - awesome experience!!!
Feb 2020
My friend and I took a 3-1/2 hour jogging tour with Jean Charles and I can definitely say I would do it again. Jean Charles was very knowledgeable, professional and very kind. He was ready to answer and questions we had and was very thoughtful of our pace and level of energy. He gave us an interesting insight on Paris including maps of the city and print-outs of some of the historic sites we visited. He came prepared with bottled waters and a camera to take pictures during our tour which he later sent to us via Dropbox. We began and completed the route at our hotel which was convenient. I would recommend this to anyone who loves running, wants to get to know the city and wants to overall have a different experience instead of your regular bus tours.

20k tour on day of arrival, perfect orientation to city
My 20k running tour with Jean Charles was absolutely everything I had hoped. I saw parts of the city I wouldn’t have been able to visit otherwise during my short business trip and learned a tremendous amount about the history of the city in the process. The experience is absolutely worth the cost!
