It was a 3 hour walking tour and conducted by students. We had Alex and he was engaging and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and as this is a free tour, do tip generously if it was a good tour!

As the bustling center of entertainment for the
residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon
never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional
cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets
surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide
eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just
next door and the prototypical terraced French
brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this

Hi everyone, I'm coming to Paris next month and I booked the walking tour of Paris for my first day. I understand the tour begins at Place Saint-Michel but is there a specific point where the tour ends or does it vary depending on the individual tour? Thank you!

Hello! It really varies because each guide designs their own tour. This is an amazing company and we absolutely loved our tour.
