France Private and Small Group Walking Tours

Birthplace of modern democracy and high culture
France is known for its cultural sophistication and cultivation of the intellect. Its influence on art, music, literature, science, politics, fashion, food, and philosophy—just to name a few fields—is unparalleled.  

Traveling around France is a great way to meet the heroes of its past. Its streets, museums, churches, and other famous landmarks bear witness to the people and the movements they inspired that built the country up into a world power—from the Sun King to Napoleon to Voltaire to Pasteur, and beyond.

Laurent was wonderful. We half a great day!
Laura was fantastic! Super knowledgeable and so enthusiastic. We learned a ton and really enjoyed our time with her. We had expressed interest in Cezanne and she took the time in advance to look up a few historical facts about his life here! We saw so much of the town and she gave us a fantastic recommendation for lunch!
After a fantastic experience with Context Travel on our last trip to Europe (tours in both Rome and Pompeii), there was no doubt we would want to hire them again for our trip to Paris. Once again, it was truly exceptional. Pablo Jesus was our guide of the Louvre, and was absolutely fantastic. We did not receive the cookie-cutter "Louvre in a nutshell" tour, but rather a highly personalized and insightful look into this great museum. Pablo first offered an in-depth explanation of the history of the Louvre (including the incredible moat and drawbridge that still exists below dating back to its original construction as a medieval castle). His detailed knowledge kept us captivated during the entire tour, and his attentiveness coupled with a wonderful sense of humor made the 4 hours we spent together feel too short (we wanted more!). Also, by taking the time to focus on specific works and making us really think about those select pieces, it made the art viewing experience meaningful and thought-provoking. We truly felt like being on a personally guided art tour, not just tourists being rushed from one end of the Louvre to the other. We also greatly enjoyed the different cultural and political perspectives Pablo offered on each piece, and on the history of art as a whole. Guiding a group of girls/women (ranging in age from 16 to 83) is no easy task, but Pablo pulled it off with incredible ease and grace. His charm and wit won our hearts. This tour remains one of the great highlights of our Paris visit! The Context Travel guides and their level of expertise, professionalism, as well as patience and kindness, are like none other. We cannot wait for our next tour!
