Emmanuel was excellent! He was very knowledgeable and personable and his stories entertained us. He was happy to answer our never ending questions. We felt safe travelling throughout the public transit system. I would highly recommend Emmanuel and this very comprehensive tour of Paris.

We had the most incredible tour of Paris in a Day yesterday and it was largely thanks to our amazing tour guide, Adam! He was beyond knowledgeable, funny, and kept our group of nine engaged for the full day (no easy feat when we range in age from 10-45!) We will recommend Adam and Walks to anyone coming to Paris!!

Due to the other family booked on not showing up, we ended up with a private tour- myself, children aged 13 and 8 and the tour guide. Daniel our guide was brilliant, my little boy loved him and was really disappointed he didn't come up the Eiffel Tower with us too! It was a long tiring day and we chose to save the boat tickets for another day, but we definitely saw all of Paris and would be confident to navigate ourselves now.

Excellent tour guide. Truly knew her information and very passionate. Was a very good tour, but spent too much time in Musee d’Orsay. Would have preferred to stroll by the Louvre pyramid and other nearby sites.

Meeting Point
Anvers Metro Station. Meet in front of the information kiosk labeled "Paris Tourisme" directly across from the staircase down into the metro station. Your guide will be holding a green Walks sign.

Please meet 15 minutes prior to the tour start time.


Do I need to bring an ID with me on this tour?
Yes! Please ensure that all members of your party, including children, have a valid ID on them on the day of the visit.
Is the Eiffel Tower always included on this tour?
The Eiffel tower is open almost every day of the year, but it often closes on Bastille Day (July 14th) in order to set up for the annual fireworks display above the tower. Some years preparations begin on the afternoon of the 13th. If you are planning to visit the Tower around Bastille Day, please contact our customer services team to check on the hours of closure for the Tower.
Can I bring a stroller on this trip with me?
Yes, but please be aware that not every metro station that we use has working elevators. If you bring a stroller for your child you will have to carry it up some stairs.
When we're on the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower, can I buy tickets to access the top of the tower.
Unfortunately, no. If you want to buy tickets to the top of the tower you have to return to the bottom, wait in line, then buy your ticket to the top. They cost €25.00 each.
