Paris
Private and Small Group Guided Tours

With its boulevards and bohemians, Paris lives up to its reputation as headquarters for the intellectually curious.
The glittering jewel of the Seine. Birthplace of gothic architecture, hotbed of the Age of Enlightenment, cultural capital par excellence—there's a reason why Paris has so many nicknames. This endlessly fascinating city has many layers: from its medieval Gothic period, when churches like Notre Dame sprung up, to the 1789 Revolution, when the Bastille was torn down, to the Second Empire, when 19th-century urban planner Hausmann built the grand boulevards, and to the 20th century, when modernist architects like Le Corbusier constructed sleek streamlined buildings and experimented with a new vision of the city. That sense of invention has inspired French culture—including literature, art, fashion, and food. Immerse yourself in the grand splendor of Paris with Context's private and small group guided tours.

Paris Private and Guided Tours

We run over 30 different private and small group guided tours in Paris, including tours for kids, food tours, and art tours. What's our favorite? Well, it's hard to go wrong with our private Paris chocolate tour, an intellectually curious look at the world-conquering sweet that covers everything from how such an innocuous bean became so beloved to why Paris might be the best city for chocolate in the world. We also love our Musee d'Orsay Tour with an art historian, covering one of the most exciting and noteworthy periods of art in a city that has never had a dull moment in the development of creative expression—a highlight among our tours of Paris. If we're feeling bohemian then let's alight to the 18th arr. for our Montmartre Walking Tour, where we'll learn all about Lautrec, Picasso, and the rest of the avant-garde community of the late-19th and early-20th century. Expect bohemian culture in an idyllic enclave, where everyone from Mondrian to Modigliani lived or worked.

Marie was amazing. She was engaging, lively and knowledgeable. We all loved here. The 9 is because we took another context tour with another guide that was quite mediocre. So based on Marie I would certainly give a 10 for a recommendation but based on our French Revolution tour I would not.
We enjoyed our tour of the Louvre with Caroline very much. I don't think we would have gotten as much out of this experience if we did it on our own.
Iveta was great. Would highly recommend her. Emailing to arrange the private tour was more cumbersome than it should have been. I had one major request: to have a guide capable of discussing Enlightenment thinkers. The guide was great but it was difficult to get a response via email to confirm that she would be capable of engaging about the thinkers as well as the artists and history. The confirmation came only on the day before the tour. But as I said, Iveta was great. Knowledgeable. And articulate.
