  • Book this tour. As fast as possible! We did an ebike tour with Martin, and it could not have been more perfect. I am one of those people who over-researches everything, and I am so thankful we got a p...  more »

  • Best thing we did in Paris. Based on a TA review I booked this walking tour on our first day in Paris and was glad I did. Martin is engaging and amazing! There were only three of us on the tour so we really got a firsthand look of the city although Martin doesn’t usually take more than eight, so the experience would be the same with more people. Great for a solo traveler. Martin took us to the local places for coffee, pastries, etc. and gave us a personalized map of the city. Plan on walking a lot though. He has fun and had informative stories to tell so I felt we really saw Paris as it was meant to be seen. Martin is also available for the rest of your stay to call with questions or recommendations. he also follows up with a huge list of all kinds of recommendations. Do not miss this! If you have an American college T shirt, bring it as a tip. He would appreciate it!
  • Martin thoroughly impressed my mother and I during our first trip to Paris! He thoughtfully planned out a fabulous day tailored to our interests and preferences that we sent to Claudia with our reservation request. She communicated quickly and sent us instructions on how/where to meet up. On the tour, Martin shared many unique places and facts with us along the way, and we even stumbled upon some fun impromptu spots. I was impressed too, with how he made sure we kept a comfortable walking pace, had hats and water, rest stops, etc. when we needed them. What a gentleman! We felt more confident heading out on our own after his tour, given new tips and a special map. We highly recommend his tours for new or return visitors to Paris! He was kind enough to answer a few texts we sent him after the tour as well. Merci Martin!!
  • I did the bike tour and it was fantastic! First off, Martin is an amazing storyteller. He knows so much history and tells it with humor, animated gestures, and funny voices. It was like listening to one of your funniest friends tell you about their wild escapades through Parisian history. The tour was a great combination of history and stopping into delicious eateries for treats. He is super safety conscious and mindful for biking through busy streets. I would totally do this tour again - and probably spring for doing an even more personalized tour for fewer people (there were only 8 of us - which was already considerably smaller then the Fat Tire Tour I went on). I love that it's a small business and he really gives it a personal touch in adapting the tour/info he shares to meet the interests of the group. This was much more like being hosted then being a tourist.
  • If you’re looking for a unique and off beat tour of Paris, then this is the one for you. My mom and I have done three tours with Paris With Martin, and each has been an amazing experience. With the tours being extremely personalized and tailored to whatever the guest wants, it leads to a fascinating and exciting tour of the charming backstreets and historical neighborhoods of Paris showing you what the city truly has to offer. A bonus of doing a tour with this company is the the ability to text or call your guide days after your tour to get advice or recommendations for food and bars. The best way to summarize my experience with this company is that it’s fun, exciting, and incessantly entertaining, and it’s something I would recommend to everyone.
  • When we found out we were to have a 15 hour layover in Paris we didn't know what to do. As suggested by a friend, we contacted Paris by Martin. What a blessing that was! We opted for the walking tour. Martin gave us a unique and personal look at Paris. It was the perfect introduction, to the beautiful city, the overall picture we were looking for. Martin's little stories and trips down side streets combined history with hidden treasures that the average tourist would miss. It didn't seem like we were on a tour but being shown around Paris by a very knowledgeable friend. The time went by so quickly . Martin was fully prepared for whatever our needs might be with water, personalized maps and even rain gear just in case. What more could one expect! He was professional, friendly, and was able to answer any question posed to him. Whether you will be in Paris for a short visit or would like a preview for a longer stay, Martin is the person to contact. I highly recommend his service.
