About the tour

The city of Paris was born thanks to the river Seine. Not only did it serve as a vital source of water, it acted as the main means of transportation to effect trade with other cities and it offered a natural layer of protection against warring factions. It was only natural that many important monuments were built next to the river. The Cathedral of Notre-Dame, city hall and of course the Louvre, to name but a few. Of course a majestic river would be incomplete without some equally elegant bridges such as Pont Neuf, which is the oldest standing bridge across the Seine. Luckily we'll be able to pass all of these sites as we explore what the river means to Parisians as we join them to stroll along the river.


Meet your local guide

Florent

It's an understatement to say Florent knows Paris. Born in this wonderful city, Florent says he confidently knows every nook and cranny. Having completed over 2000 tours, we believe him. He's a self declared history, art and archaeology buff. What he loves most is sharing the best parts (and dirty secrets) of Paris with you!

Florent has been guiding since Aug 2010

The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Paris. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.


Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.
