Walking tours of Paris are a great way for visitors to learn about the most important sights in the city. These walks are inexpensive, professionally organized, and highly informative. One company that offers walking tours of Paris is Paris Walks, which has been in operation since 1994. Paris Walks specializes in small group tours that last about two and a half hours in length.

The guides who lead the walking tours of Paris are friendly and enthusiastic. They speak in both English and French, and have extensive knowledge of Paris and French culture. Visitors who embark on walking tours of Paris with a guide will definitely get their money’s worth and more.

Adults pay only 12 euro for most tours, students pay 10 euros, and children pay 8 euros.

Paris Walks is open throughout the year and offers one or two specific walking tours of Paris each day. Popular tours include walks through the Village of Montmartre, the Medieval Latin Quarter, and the Old Marais Quarter. Visitors to Paris who are interested in a walking tour can contact Paris Walks and other companies either online or by telephone to see which walks are available on certain days and times. There is usually no need to pay in advance, and each tour group meets at a designated metro station.

In addition to the standard walking tours of Paris, Paris Walks offers private tours for 160 euros and a Chocolate Walk for 25 euros. The Chocolate Walks are very enjoyable, as they include visits to French chocolate shops complete with product tasting.
