I'm David, I will meet you at your hotel (in Paris) and will be with you for a 3 hours walking tour, which is enough to cover either the historical Paris (old center, Notre Dame, Marais, Pompidou, Latin Quarter, both islands) or the more recent and famous monuments (Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Palais Royal, Invalides, Concorde, Champs Elysées, Opera). All of this for just 249 USD !
My focus is more on the beauty of the city and fun annecdotes than on pure historical facts and dates. Revolution, Romans and Kings are of course part of the tour, but not at the center of it.
We'll stop at a nice Parisian café for a delicious crepe and expresso or if you prefer and if weather permits, for a refreshing ice-cream. You control the tour!
I also offer a full day version, with one extra hour for free. It's tour number #114412.
Anywhere in Paris. I usually start the tour with a quick discussion : What have you seen so far? What section of the city are you the most interested in ? (Historical center? Shopping areas? Western more recent Haussmann-style buildings. . . )
In three hours, we can focus on one or two neighborhoods, for example: We can see both islands, the Marais Jewish area, and the Latin Quarter. This option allows to talk about our history: Revolution, Noblemen, Middle-ages, famous kings, Romans settlers, beheadings and Marie-Antoinette. As we browse through history, we also see beautiful monuments such as Notre Dame, Place des Vosges, Hotel de Ville, Luxembourg Gardens, Pantheon, Sorbonne University, Sainte Chapelle and Saint-Germain-des-Pres church.

David did an astounding job of describing the history and architecture of the Les Marais and the Jewish and Latin quarters. These are little gems which people must not overlook and his knowledge is astounding.
