Medieval Mystery in Paris – Kids Tour (Private)
You would like to share with your kids the rich history of the Medieval era but not sure how to keep them entertained? This is where Meet the Locals’ expertise kicks in! Our team of Welcomers are specialized in guiding children to make history sound exciting.
At the start of the trip, your dear little darlings will receive an activity booklet that will engage them all along the visit. Acting as detectives, they will have to solve an inquiry in the medieval neighborhood around Notre-Dame with the help of Casquette, a famous dog-archeologist.
The investigation starts at Notre-Dame, the majestic Cathedral. By raising their nose to the towers or looking down at forgotten clues on the ground, your kids will discover architectural details that will take them back in time to the Middle Ages.
On the way to Paris Law Court, you will hear about kings and knights who lived in that former palace. Both its decoration features and architectural elements hold the legacy of these glorious times. Your kids will just need to look around to find these long-lasting souvenirs.
Crossing the Seine river, you will wander through a very ancient Parisian district, close to the Saint-Michel fountain. Here, the narrow streets – nearly unchanged since the Middle Ages – are very busy. Along the way, Casquette will give the young investigators more elements to solve the riddle.
Now, here you are in front of the Hotel de Cluny (housing the National Medieval Museum), a genuine medieval mansion, where a last clue remains which will give your kids the key to unfold the mystery!
Who is Casquette?
Casquette is our favorite dog! Between you and me, we would have loved to provide you with a real dog, but you will need to accept his cartoon instead.
I have a teenager and a child on board. Is this tour fit for them?
Your Welcomer is specialized in touring children of all ages, even the elders! So do not worry, each member of the family will find his interest.
Are we entering Notre-Dame or Hotel de Cluny during our visit?
Going inside these monuments is not included. Your tour ends in front of the Cluny museum, so you can directly visit it after your tour. Notre-Dame is just a stone’s throw away, so also very convenient to visit.
What if we are more than 4 people?
Just advise us in your request form about the number of people in your party, as well as their category (adult or child). There will be an extra fee of 20€ per additional person.
