Are you planning on visiting Paris with your kids? What a wonderful idea! This family tour provides exciting activities to discover Paris through our locals’ eyes!
The main purpose of this family tour is to show you authentic French culture and the Parisian art-de-vivre while entertaining your kids with games and challenges. From eating a traditional afternoon kids snack to taking Parisian transportation like the metro or buses to get around the city, we want you and your family to feel like native Parisians.
In a nutshell, here is what your journey with us will look like:
To begin this amazing day, you will go to a typical café with your kids expert for a drink. Your kids will receive an activity booklet filled with enigmas about Paris to solve. This is a fun way for them to learn some history and even some French words!
Now let’s start your exciting exploration time! Your “Mary Poppins” guide has planned a magical trip to the main Parisian highlights. Your first stop will be Montmartre’s hill, aka the “rooftop of Paris.” From the esplanade in front of the Sacré-Coeur church, your eyes will embrace the whole city in just one glimpse. Absolutely breathtaking! You will stop at Montmartre’s village-like atmosphere, where you will gaze upon charming gardens, vineyards, and cobblestone streets. Last but not least, it’s now time for your kids to practice the French that they learned earlier to buy a croissant or a pain au chocolat in a boulangerie, the traditional afternoon snack for little Parisians kids.
A lunch break is scheduled (not included); you can either have a quick lunch or a snack at a café! Don’t hesitate to ask your guide for recommendations.
Your next stop will be the Trocadéro Square where the Eiffel Tower will be standing in front of you. From there you will get one of the best views of the majestic Iron Lady! Now, it is time to board for 1 hour of relaxation. You may choose between a 60 min playful ride in tuk-tuk (golf cart) across Paris or, if you’re more inspired by boats, to embark on a soothing 60 min cruise on the Seine. Hard to choose, isn’t it?
Your guide will then lead you to the beautiful Ile de la Cité and its famous flower market! You will start with a serene walk through the picturesque streets around Notre-Dame. From there, you will cross a 400-year-old bridge to reach the Royal district – Le Louvre, Rivoli Street, Concorde Square.
At the end of your day, you will have embraced Paris and will truly feel like a local! Buying bread or croissants in a bakery? No problem! Riding the metro like a native? Easy peasy! Not only will you now be acquainted with Paris, you will actually be ready and at ease to discover more!
Still have some free time to enjoy Paris? Why not try a Treasure Hunt in the Louvre next to have some more fun?
As we have previously mentioned, this family tour has been specially organized with the kids in mind! Our primary goal is that your kids enjoy this activity, as we are very well aware of how important that is for you as parents, but also because it makes us very happy to see them smile
If you are worried that this trip would be too tiring for them, we are open to adapting the schedule following your requests (walking less or using more public transportation).
Our goal in this tour is not only to entertain your children but also to provide them with general cultural knowledge of France and Paris.
Lunch is excluded from this family tour but your “Mary Poppins” guide will be very pleased to show you where to eat during the lunch vreak based on your interests!
Just advise our superhero squad in your request form about the number of people in your party, as well as their category (adult or child), so we’ll be able to tell you about the extra fee per additional person.

We really enjoyed our tours with Meet the Locals in Paris and our guides, Sebastian and Charlotte, were fantastic. Excellent english and they really tried to engage with our two boys aged 9 and 12. We did several customised tours which were all great but of the activities, the kids enjoyed the chocolate walking tour and Louvre treasure hunt the best. Sebastian was very knowledgeable about the Louvre and worked hard at telling the kids about art pieces they would be interested in. Charlotte was awesome on the chocolate tour. Definitely a great experience.
I never write reviews, but I had to for this incredible tour company, Meet the Locals. Our family (including 2 kids) made a very last minute trip to Paris and London -we only had a few days in each and wanted to make the most of our trip. Within minutes of visiting the website, Dominique contacted me and spent a considerable amount of time working with me to craft the perfect experience for my family for both London and Paris. She came up with an ideal itinerary that included both time with and without a guide. It was a perfect blend of hitting the highlights, but also gave us downtime to just stroll around and experience the cities at our leisure. Our guides were simply incredible – Tina in London, and Nathalie and Christelle in Paris. They all were amazing and engaging with both the kids and adults. I had high expectations after all of my dealings with Dominique, and this team exceeded my expectations. From start to finish – Meet the Locals was a 5+++ star experience.
I did tons of research before booking tours for my family. But when Meet the Locals popped up I just felt they were something special. I read reviews and they were all glowing. I loved that it was a more intimate company because I wanted one on one customer service and private family tours, not huge groups that felt impersonal. I received help from one of the sister owners, Dominique, and she supported me every step of the way! Not just with booking tours but even helping me to book the correct train (we were headed to the French Riviera after the Laris leg of our journey), some restaurant suggestions and she even offered me a complimentary Seine River Cruise when I asked her about the most reputable companies since it can be overwhelming to choose one! I felt so completely taken care of. The tours are private and luxurious and totally affordable. It was wonderful not waiting in lines, we would walk by and easily enter everywhere we wanted to go like VIPs! I will be leaving specific reviews for each tour we took, needless to say they were all AMAZING and our guides were fantastic. I wish they had a branch for every country I visit in the future. I know I will use them again next time I visit Paris. If you want private tours that are individualized for your family or friends PLEASE book with Meet the Locals. They will make make all the magical places in Paris truly come to life!
