City of Lights and Love

Few cities in world inspire the imagination list Paris. With beautiful architecture, stunning gardens, and artistic inspiration to rival any of its European neighbours, this is a city that sits on almost every person's bucket list. We show it to you through the eyes of Paris' best local tour guides.

Discover the many faces of Paris with a passionate local guide

The original FREE Tour of Paris covers many of the top Paris attractions, including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, the Champs Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe. After you've managed to tick off some of the best places to see in Paris with the free walking tour, delve deeper with us!

There are so many things to do in Paris, including experiencing the Rive Gauche, or left bank on the Latin Quarter Tour. Often known as the writers' area, or painters' area, this was home to Ernest Hemingway, Salvador Dali and James Joyce, among others.

Of course, another top area not to be missed is Montmartre, and the Montmarte District Tour runs every day, including sites like the Basilica Sacré Coeur, the home of Van Gogh and the Moulin Rouge. But the most romantic places in the City of Love only get more romantic at night, and so the City of Lights Tour is a tour of Paris' top attractions while they're beautifully lit up.

After all that walking, you might be ready for a drink, and our top-rated pub crawl is a great night out in Paris, with bars, clubs and drink deals all night. If you've still got energy the next day, why not visit Versailles? The Versailles Tour runs almost every day, and no trip to Paris is complete without experiencing this must-see site.

Original FREE Tour, every day of the year

Rain or shine, all of our tours run as scheduled. Book your place online to guarantee your spot! We believe in supporting local communities and are committed to giving a voice to some of Paris' best local freelance tour guides, who passionately share the city's history and culture with their own unique and always-entertaining style. The independent guides who employ us to market their tours conduct the FREE Tour on a tips-only basis, thereby guaranteeing that you receive a tour of the highest quality. They'll never pressure you to tip; we believe that, if money is given, it should be voluntary and in direct proportion to the quality of the tour and the budget of the traveller.
