History of Paris Family Tour (Private)
Are you looking for a fun family time in Paris with your teens? Are you willing to learn more about the history of Paris? Well, hop on our special Teens Walking Tour and explore Paris through the ages with a passionate historian guide.
For 3 hours, your teens 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 make 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 teens’ 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.

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?
