Hi Renee, thanks, we got lucky with the weather and managed a stroll around the Louvre, riverside and bridges, plus the hopping around the metro lines dropping us off at the bottom of Rue des Martyrs which had all the locals out at the street markets and yard sale. The funicular ride plus a visit to the Sacred Heart Basilica in Montmartre. And the sandwich alley just before or after the museum. Was a fun afternoon! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions whilst still here Paris. Cheers, Thor

I had a great time on my tour with Thor! We met near where I’m staying and we went to the nearest Metro station. He explained to me how ticketing works and how to get the most flexibility for the lowest cost. He showed me how to read the maps and how to use the turnstiles depending on the type of ticket/pass you have. I’ve been to Paris before and used the Metro but it’s nice to have a little knowledge and not have to wing it! The rest of the tour was a whirlwind. As we walked, Thor pointed out the Palais Garnier, the Galleries Lafayette, we walked through three Passages, and then walked up to Montmartre and Sacre Coeur. Then we got a bus and went down to the river. We were walking toward the Hotel de Ville and Notre Dame caught my eye so we headed over there, crossing the Pont Des Artes, and then he showed me a jazz/cabaret club he recommended. Then we parted ways and I made it back to my neighborhood with no mistakes! 🤣 Along the way, Thor gave lots of tips for travelers. I highly recommend this tour!

Hi smargotie, thank you for your kind words. We did indeed have a wonderful time exploring Paris on foot, metro & bus. Not to mention that weekly metro pass we managed includes Versailles transport. Enjoy the rest of your stay. Please do not hesitate to make contact with me if you have any questions. Cheers, Thor

Due to a change in plans we ended up with just a little more than one full day to visit Paris. Disappointing, especially since it was our first visit. We were a group of four, including our parents, who are less mobile which made this last minute trip to such a big city even more daunting. For this reason I booked a 4 hour “Introduction tour”. Unfortunately, before we arrived, our parents had reached their limits and choose, the night before, not to go. Thor was surprised and concerned and immediately offered to come up with a new plan. I assured him it was ok and off we went. This was the start of what turned out to be one of best tours we have ever done. Thor was as humorous, considerate, and as helpful as everyone says. We ended up doing a full day tour, completely unexpected, but we enjoyed every minute of it. We zig zagged all over Paris on foot (by choice, of course) seeing a local farmer’s market, Luxembourg Gardens, Pantheon, the Louvre, Palais Garnier, Galeries Lafayette, and Moulin Rouge before finally making it to the Montmartre area for a sandwich and some craft beer. After an enjoyable lunch we wandered over to Sacre Coure and then headed back home passing the Cathedral of Notre Dame. Thor filled us in on some French culture, avoiding scam artists, and allowed me plenty of time to stop and take a bunch of photos. Thor also helped me in the bargaining process too, not only did I get a light up Eiffel tower for my daughter but I got a few key chains and a magnet thrown in without getting taken to the cleaners. Although it seemed at first that our visit to Paris might be a little disappointing it turned to be a fantastic day. As they say, when one door closes, another one opens. Thanks Thor for a fantastic day!

On July 8th we arrived in Paris at approx. 9:30am after an overnight flight from Dallas. We checked into the hotel and met Thor downstairs shortly after noon. Right off the bat we knew we had made a good decision. We started with a short walk to the train station and learned how to navigate the metro. With his help we felt confident and safe taking the train. From there we traveled all over the city using the train and with A LOT of walking. For six hours we explored just about all of the major attractions that we wanted to see, stopped for a bite to eat and ended with some pitchers of beer! Due to time constraints, we were not interested in going into to Louve but decided to check it out from the outside. Just an example of his willingness to personalize our tour. Within our day, we experienced areas of Paris we would have never explored on our own and became acclimated with the city as a whole. It was magical! As many others have said, it felt like you were exploring the city with an old friend. He was kind, patient, knowledgeable and a joy to be with. I highly recommend a tour with Thor to get your bearings and hit the areas that are important to you! He’s flexible and wants to make your tour just what you desire. Because of our packed tour day, it made the rest of our stay in Paris much more enjoyable and relaxing. Do not hesitate to book!
