Are you looking for a fun family time in Paris? Are you willing to learn more about the history of Paris? Well, hop on our special Kid and Teens Walking Tour and explore Paris throughout the ages with a passionate historian guide.

For 3 hours, your kids will be engaged with a playful booklet that includes games and riddles to solve. Each one of them will unveil one hidden or quirky story about Paris. From the Middle Ages to the French Revolution, this fun tour was designed as a journey back in time to inspire your entire family and to let you unveil fascinating details and curiosities about Paris that you may never have discovered on your own.

Meet our amazing storyteller near one the most impressive Gallo-Roman sites in Paris: the Cluny thermae. You will start your journey in Antiquity and your guide will entice your kids’ imagination, which will beg for more.

Good news is you will keep traveling in time through the Latin Quarter – a gem of Ancient and Middle Ages testimonies. Spot traces of other periods and observe the epic history still present in the streets of Paris today.

Learn the history of Paris in a fun way with this tour designed for kids and teens!

Let’s walk a bit more to reach Paris’s two natural islands: Ile de la Cité and Ile Saint Louis. Walk through the charming streets of the Cité island where you will get to spot the iconic Notre-Dame cathedral. You will then discover the Saint Louis island, with its quaint medieval atmosphere.

Stroll along the Seine River to step into the Marais, the heart of historical Paris. Private mansions, hidden gardens, splendid churches – you name it! Your guide will show you timeless wonders that you will see only in this neighborhood, behind closed walls and secret passages.

It will be time for a well-deserved break. Your guide will select a delicious pastry in the Marais area. You will also enjoy a drink in a cozy café where your guide will open the way to more tales.

Buckle up for our last stop! Bastille Square opens its arms. Remember the 18th century and the tale of the French Revolution. Try to imagine how the Bastille fortress once stood and see today how a symbol of another revolution occupies the center of the square.

This 3-hour adventure tour will fly by just as the centuries you just came upon once did. They left traces everywhere in Paris, if you know where to look… Ready to step back in time?

    Both of my kids truly loved what they saw because the guides are passionate about the history and story of Paris. We could not have been happier with both of our tours and they helped make our trip unforgettable. I am SO thankful we found your company and we will definitely use you again when we return to Paris.

    I have worked with Dominique from Meet the Locals since October 2018 to plan this awesome trip. She went back and forth in emails and chats on their website until I had the best itinerary for my family. She was never annoyed with my questions. Her patience and suggestions were constant and made me feel well cared for. I asked for instructions on how to get to our first stop from our Airbnb and she topped that by having our tour guide meet us there for our first tour so we couldn’t get lost. I CANNOT say enough of our tour guide Camille! We fell in love with her. She was patient, kind, spoke amazing english and knew just how much history to give based on the kid’s queues. She was really patient with the kids and was never offended when my kid’s were tired.
