Hi! We're Claire and Johann. We are Australians who made Paris our home 4 years ago. We've spent countless hours roaming our favourite city and we love recounting its many historical, humourous, romantic, and surreal stories, as well as sharing our favourite spots for Paris treats (did someone say 'pain au chocolat'?). We have created our very own 'Best Bits of Paris' walk.

Where you'll be

We will be walking through Paris and getting the metro together several times to reach sites that are too far to walk. We will be stopping at sights along the way to hear the enchanting stories and history. To give us more time to see all the sights on this tour, we will not be going inside the monuments.

Rated 4.95 out of 5 from 22 reviews.

We arrived in Paris on an early morning flight and took Claire’s tour before we checked into our hotel that afternoon. Without the tour, our day might have been more scattered and aimless. Claire was conscientious and thoughtful. Our group had a 12-year-old and a 75-year-old and we needed a pace that accommodated all of us. In addition to the standard fare, we learned some fun tidbits along the way. Claire also accommodated our request for a late start so that we could drop bags at our hotel. Because we were going to the Louvre the next day, we skipped it in favor of a slower pace and a break. Also great to have the pantheon get some love.

Clare was an amazing guide. She is thoughtful, knowledgeable, kind and funny! I was the only person to show up but she was happy to still do the tour. She had lots of fun stories to share and was happy to look things up if I asked something she didn’t know. She personalized the tour for me and went at an easy pace. She truly went above and beyond and gave me a wonderful tour of Paris!
