Paris Promenade


When it’s dark in Paris the lights of the Eiffel Tower are flickering. Every hour for five minutes. Afterwards we have to wait for another 55 minutes to light up again. The desire to see it again is symbolic for the longing to experience this remarkable city over and over again. Preferably immediately and everywhere! But that’s impossible. And that’s why your desire for Paris never fades away.

We hope that you will be overwhelmed with this feeling. We like to stimulate it by showing you places you hardly find without a guide. On our way we unveil a whole different face of Paris. You can choose a huge diversity of locations and theme’s. No matter what, our passion is to offer you an unforgetable tour. 

ITINERARY ALONG THE SEINE (2 hours)

In this tour you experience many famous landmarks of Paris. We follow the eternal river La Seine, inseparable with the city itself. Sometimes we leave the Seine for a moment to wander through a beautiful park. And then again we cross the water over the oldest brick bridge of town. Memory lane from an earlier visit long ago or a complete new discovery? Maybe both will happen - when you join this classic tour. Beautiful views guaranteed !

 

Included in this itinerary: 

  • A nice and easy introduction to the city of Paris (including The Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, Pont Neuf...)
  • Feel the magic of the Seine as the aorta of the city.
  • Sometimes we leave the famous paths to offer you surprising perspectives.


ROMANCE AT CANAL SAINT-MARTIN (2 hours)


Well hidden at the east side of Paris and close to Gare du Nord.  Canal Saint-Martin has a natural charme with her fascinating locks ("les écluses"), beautiful iron bridges and a "love is in the air" atmosphere. It's the place for Parisians to gather for an apero ("du vin, du pain, du fromage"). But this chanel also contains many secrets which we love to share with you...

Included in this itinerary:

  • An itinerary along Canal St. Martin.
  • A short detour along a picturesque hospital and a plaque commemorating the attacks in 2015. 
  • We pass partly the popular le Marais neighbourhood to arrive at  the yacht harbour at the Bastille ("l'Arsenal").

And, not to forget: a very good alternative in rainy weather! 😉

What is so special about Paris Promenade?

In one word: class!

We show Paris in a different way. It's all about our passion: the love we cherish for Paris. It's classful in two ways: showing the beauty of the city. And on the other side we try to give you the feeling of being unique.

Because the small size of the groups - in general not larger than 10 persons - you are not a number. We take our guests serious (au serieux).
