Tour by Sophie
Local

My name is Sophie: deeply in love with Paris and graduated in History and Political Science from La Sorbonne.

It's thanks to a lot of trips (Central and South America, Indonesia, Sweden, Norway, Spain, Italy...), followed by visits of many big cities that my desire to create tours close to my Parisian way of life was born.

My wish is to allow visitors to live like locals in Paris, as I am doing for almost 8 years !

Description

We start with a historical and cultural walk along the right bank of the River Seine (from Pont au Change to Pont de Sully). From there we discover more than a dozen monuments and I'll tell you the fascinating stories behind each! The anecdotes I share will give you a better understanding of French culture. You'll also hear about the local street art and urbanisation of the city.

We will then leave the river to walk to the 12th arrondissement of Paris where you'll discover its famous secrets. I'll tell you about the changes that took place in the district from the French Revolution (1789) up to now, and show you secret places that are especially perfect for taking beautiful photographs!

By lunchtime we will arrive at my favorite place in Paris: an authentic and vibrant market where you can stock up on local, tasty produce. I can help you choose the best French food.

If you are up for a picnic, I can lead you to a nice quiet spot where you can sit down to feast on your purchases from the food market.

Highly recommend
Sophie’s enthusiasm for Paris, it’s history and her joy in sharing it with others makes this a special experience. She also really seems to enjoy meeting people from all over the world; learning a little about them, while teaching them a bit about some of her favorite, less well known areas of Paris. I highly recommend her tours.

Wonderful tour through areas that tourists would not experience on their own! I loved the perspective Sophie provided in living in Paris. She also very helpfully provided a lot of tips for my stay in Paris and beyond. Highly recommend!
