We spent the most amazing day with Tim of Paris Urban Adventures! To start we were visiting Paris off season and Tim gladly arranged a private walking tour for my 16 year daughter and me. They responded quickly with each communication. We booked this on our first full day in Paris. Tim showed us sights we would never have seen... More

I love Urban Adventure tours!! I've used them on 3 continents now. The regular tours were closed due to off-season but I emailed to ask what could be put together. UA responded promptly and their price was great. Adele gave my 15 year old daughter and me a wonderful 3 hour introductory tour of Paris including a stop for coffee... More

Awesome morning spent with Adele. She gave us an insight into the culture and history of the French people, provided us with insightful historical points and took us to the hidden gems of the city. Well worth the effort.

My only regret was that we only signed up for a half day tour.... Arthur was an unbelievable guide, giving us such insight into the history and evolution of the city of Paris. I highly recommend this tour.

Arthur was our guide and he did an amazing job explaining the history as we walked the streets of the marais. You could tell he really appreciates the history and loves his job. our family enjoyed the delicious stops we made along the way and went back to some of those shops after the tour. We felt like we got... More

We did the Total Paris Tour, full day of sightseeing and tasting local delicacies around Paris. Our tour guide was Adele, and she was absolutely amazing- not only a wonderful tour guide with extensive knowledge of the city, but a warm lovely person with a big smile who made you feel you were simply walking around an amazing city with...

My friend and I signed up for the Secret Paris/ hidden gems tour. The day we went was cold and forecasted to rain. As a result no one else came and we had a private tour with Tim! He is extremely knowledgeable and very kind. He modified the tour so we could grab a hot coffee and spend more time... More

My husband and I had never been to Paris before, and had less than two days in the city. Our two hours with Adele was wonderful! She taught us the ropes on the city- place to see, some history, non-tourist hot spots, and a crash course on the metro! To top it off I had a cold and she so... More

I signed up for two tours with Urban Adventures Paris because I've had such great experiences in other cities. I was lucky enough to have Arthur for both - he was professional, welcoming, knowledgeable and fun. I was a little reticent about the "How to be Parisian" tour since I've been to Paris several times before. But the time and... More

Arthur was engaging, informed, and had both a breadth and depth of knowledge. You also get the sense that you aren't getting a boring, repetitive experience. Arthur didn't just walk from point A to B and recite the same story. We were interested a bit in the history of the theater, and he went into depth on the comedy of... More
