3 of us enjoyed this tour with the very knowledgeable tour guide Corey! He knows and loves Paris so his additional information made this tour exceptional. Our Parisian friend joined us on this tour so we know the additional information was a plus.

These passages are a bit spread out and differ wildly in quality, so it's hard to just give one score. At their best, they are cozy recluses from the bustle of modern life, full of cute antique book stores and ateliers, at their worst, they...More

Very well documented history of the workings below the city of Paris. However you do need a strong stomach when you venture further into the tunnel. Bring a scented handkerchief.

Seek out these covered shopping areas, an innovation in the early 19th Century. Decide which one is your favorite. They range from ritzy and beautiful to slightly seedy to just plain functional. I love then all and keep returning.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
