Parisian guide and history lover Sophie takes you on an off-the-beaten-path tour of Paris to uncover the city’s origins. Leading you through the Latin Quarter in the 5th Arrondissement and around the islands in the center of Seine, Sophie’s historical explanations and fascinating anecdotes will have you walking back through time. You’ll see Roman ruins as well as many medieval Paris remains, including the Notre Dame Cathedral, but this guided tour isn’t just about the past – you’ll also pass by filming locations of “Emily in Paris” and get tips for what to do, see, and eat in Paris today.

Meet Your Local Guide

Sophie loves everything about Paris, from its architecture to its food, but what she loves most about living in this incredible city is the chance to share its stories (and secrets) with others. As passionate about history as she is about the city she calls home, Sophie offers unique cultural and historical tours of Paris. Her small-group guided walks blend past and present, bringing history to life while giving you great local insight into life in Paris today.
