Overview of the tour in Paris

Paris is loaded with hidden gems. We start this "Secret Paris" tour outside the most conspicuous spot - the glass pyramid of Le Louvre.

Discoveries start right away. We find out how the “Da Vinci Code” starts with a fib. We spot the lavish café that fills up with locals as soon as the museum closes for the night. We make our way to "Palais Royal" - once a vast gambling hall. We find secret shops and controversial art by one Buren.

Your group is small (10-15 people), and your guide is a Parisian who knows Paris (not some expat!). We show you the home of the Chairman of the Central Bank. A concealed door takes us to Valois - a royal plaza that was just made accessible to the general public.

Our finale is in Galerie Vivienne, an “indoor street” built inside a block of buildings. With this hard-to-find gem, we end our exploration of Secret Paris.

To see more on this free tour, we do not spend time going inside each building.
