Owner description: We're passionate about street art! On any one of our tours or workshops, we'll immerse you in the culture and history of the Paris and international street art and graffiti movement. The main street art and graffiti zones are in the north-east of Paris (Belleville tour), and in the 13th arrondissement (Left Bank), where you will be able to see a huge range of commissioned and unauthorised art, and occasionally, even meet the artists in person. We are known for being relaxed and informal, but also as experts - we are an organisation comprised of artists and documentarians, as well as plain enthusiasts, we're friends with many of the artists whose work we'll see, so our knowledge of the scene is direct from the streets. We also offer mural art workshops.

“Fascinating Tour”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We really enjoyed the Paris walking tour of street art. It allowed us to see another side of art in Paris and to broaden our knowledge of artists and their work. It was fascinating to see the different styles, formats, and materials used by the various artists. By the end of the tour we were noticing things that would have escaped us prior to the tour.

“Street art tour - awesome!”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Highly recommend the Underground Paris walking tour of street art. There was a mix of people - older, younger, couples, friends, solo travellers. Our guide, Antoine, was very knowledgable and explained the ins and outs of graffiti versus street art and the different formats/mediums. It was a different way to see Paris and some wonderful art. I really enjoyed it.

“Excellent tour”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

This tour was excellent and Antoine our guide was brilliant - enthusiastic, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. It was an interesting part of Paris to explore, as it was an off the beaten track area with a fascinating fusion of cultures. We saw a nice mixture of graffiti and street art, learned who the artists were and the techniques they used. The confirmation said it would last approx 3 hours - but we got real value for money as it lasted nearly 4 hours. My only slight negative was the number of people, it was a shame the group wasn't slightly smaller - there was about 20. But if you like street art make sure you go on this tour.

“Great Graffiti Tour”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

I took my two children aged 9 & 11 on this tour and we all loved it. Antoine knew so much about all the artists and answered all the questions thrown at him, as well as ask us, the audience some good, though provoking questions as well.

We three walked into this tour knowing nothing about street art/graffiti and walked away with a lot of new, interesting information and insights on many different fronts. For the rest of our stay in Paris we have loved finding/spotting/seeing the graffiti we learned about, discovering a little more each time since there is always a piece that we are unfamiliar with.

Plus the tour allows you to get off the beaten track in Paris and see more of the city than the famed monuments and museums. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this tour to anyone (but i will say it was about an hour too long for my kids, they hung in there but they said two hours was enough for them).

“Public Art of Paris in a truly inspiring walk with Antoine”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Antoine gave our international group of about 20 people a walking tour through Belleville and Bastille. He offered many details about the street art scene in Paris and always made sure he took time to answer all of our questions. It was really nice to see truly inspirational art in public places and hear stories and anecdotes about the artists and also about the area. If you like street art you should definitely join a walking tour with Underground Paris. You'll to find pieces hidden to most tourists and will learn just a little bit more about the scene.
