Private Paris walking/cycling tour and food tasting

If you don't know where to start, start here.

This tour will introduce Paris to you , its main monuments and the reasons of their existence or celebrity.
We will use public buses or Ride bicycles to see how Paris works and understand the city.

Riding a bicycle (optional) can be amazing (and very safe).

We forget sometimes that the Eiffel Tower that opened to the public in 1889 was a birthday gift for the French revolution,
We forget that The Louvre was not only a protection but allowed also the king to escape himself from Paris
We forget that Montmartre is a church dominating Paris, meaning morality is back and revolution is over

We will discover the official story and the unofficial one :

as it is : "History is always written by the hunters, not by the rabbits. "

At the end, you will have see the post card, what's in it and you will have keys to understand Paris and the French culture.

It will be friendly, easy and comfortable and we will do a real local food taste on the way !
