Alberto was fantastic. So engaging, interesting, and well informed. We're heading for Rome next, we wish you could come with us! Thanks, Alberto, you've given us new insight into the beautiful City of Light Jackie and Todd (Le pompier)

We went on a group tour of Montmarte with Fernando. The group was a bit big, but manageable. Fernando did a good job and showed is some street art by Love and Anarchy and the Invader, which we have continued to see during our visit. Fernando offered some recommendations for bakeries and restaurants. A good way to see the high points of this interesting neighborhood.

Dawie was AMAZING!!!!!!! Showed us so much of the city and small details I never would have seen. He talked about the culture and his excitement was contagious. Can not recommend this tour enough. Now searching for Sandeman tours in other cities.

I was doing some research about Paris, and came across this free walking tour. They have English and Spanish tour. I signed up for the English tour. It was simple and easy through their website. Meet up location was easy to find. My tour guide is Alberto. He is very friendly and knowledgeable. He told a lot of stories about all of the history monuments we visited. To be honest, I dislike history class, but I like listening to stories. Alberto did it in a nice way that interested me. I paid more attention to his tour more than my history professor in college! Tour was about 2.5 to 3 hours long. It was a very enjoyable experience. Thank you Alberto!

We were in town on Christmas day, all museums and many shops were closed, glad this free tour, tip payment, was available on a national holiday.  Our guide was Francaise? who was very energetic, informative and entertaining.  I learned about the French history as well as their culture from him.   The guides are required to pitch their other paid tours, but done tastefully.  We ended up booking their Versailles Garden Tour which I found well worth the price.

If you have never done a "free" walking tour while on vacation, you must try it. "Free" is a misnomer here. It's not free. They tell you that to lure you in (yet I still give them 4 Stars! Read on to find out why!). A more accurate description would be along the lines of "paying after the tour" as opposed to paying a fixed price when you reserve. You see, at the end of your tour, you are asked to pay whatever you feel the tour is worth. They called it "tipping" but it's not really. Typically, these companies will have a "free" tour but will spend a few minutes to pitch you their paid ones. I did some research and found out that the companies are a little underhanded. They outcompete the bigger tour companies with their "free" tour. In the beginning of each tour, a group photo is taken. The guide will say it's for their Facebook page, but really it's so the handler can charge the tour guide a fixed fee per person (around $2.50). The tour guide keeps the extra money but doesn't get paid otherwise. We've had such good tour guides though, we were more than happy to "tip". I can't knock down more than 1 star despite my misgivings about the company though because our tour guide was so phenomenal, so engaging and charismatic. She spoke to each of us and even though we were a large group, she somehow was able to include everyone in the conversation. She also warned us about thieves that hung around the sites we were going to. She said she would shout THIEF! if she saw them. This August, we were on the free "Intro to Paris " tour given by Sandeman's New Paris, which lasted a good 4 hours. We started around the Seine and ended the tour in the courtyard of the Louvre. Inga, our tour guide, is not a native Parisian, but she has been in Paris for many years and her passion for the city shows! She is fluent in English and she is a great storyteller. She is young, energetic, witty and knows how to engage the audience. She talked about the architecture and some of the famous sites. What I loved is that she told us the background story behind each of the sites and made you feel like you are back in that era. You FELT how powerful Napoleon was and the sentiment of the people of the times. We did a handful of these free tours with different companies and all of them had great tour guides; each of them phenomenal storytellers. They seemed to be college students or recent graduates. While in Paris, we also did a couple of paid tours. Although these guides did their jobs and were knowledgeable, what lacked was the passion and enthusiasm. Quite frankly, they were educational but boring... but these are pre-paid. At least with these free tours, you can choose to leave the tour if you didn't like it and choose not to pay.

I participated in the English free tour when I went to visit Paris on a whim this year. This the first thing I did after dropping off my luggage at my hotel. Registration is easy, and the starting place was quick to find. Our tour guide was excellent-he knew so much history and shared such great insight into each spot. When I found this, I thought it was too good to be true, it it really is free-they do accept tips at the end though.

Enlighten yourself with a free walking tour, but tips are suggested! I wish I knew about the free walking tours back in London, which was the first city that I started out from on my EuroTrip! I would have went to that one as well! Anyways, I am glad that I made it to this one for Paris! We had a tour guide named Enrique and he was well versed on his knowledge about Paris' history and its historic monuments! His energetic tone about the significant sites, was very captivating! I learned a lot from his history telling and this tour was so splendid, that I did the Versailles Tour with Enrique as well for the next day! That one costs, however, but train transportation was included as well as a very knowledgable tour guide! Otherwise, I would have roamed around not knowing the significant history that took place in the massive and marvelous gardens! I highly recommend the tour and what great way to know more about Paris when it's free!

As much as Paris is a destination to visit, my partner and I did not plan much on our on day trip nor knew of the hot spots in Paris. So with the power of Google we were able to find a "free" tour and this one was so worth it! If you happen to have Nancy, you are in for a treat! Nancy is one of the best tour guides that we have ever had. During the tour Nancy did an amazing job intergrating the group together. So that it is less awkward to do the tour. The tour took us at the hot spots and less known spots that is worth checking out. I love the history and context provided. Nancy is super knowledgble and please do not be shy to ask all the questions. From recommendations to more navigation tools. At the end of the tour, Nancy taught super helpful and practical skills in Paris. Last thing to know, if you like the tour, tip well. I know we tip pretty well as we were super content with the tour. If you are able to do 3 hours of walking, then this is a worthwhile tour and pay what you are able too.

Sandeman's New Paris Tours has a FREE (tips requested) walking tour every day at 11 am & 1 pm meeting by the fountain on Place St Michel. On this 3.5 hour tour, our guide Sandra, covered Notre Dame de Paris, Napoléon's Tomb, Académie Française, Tuileries Gardens, Assemblée National, View of the Grand & Petit Palais, Haussmann's Paris, View of the Pont Alexandre III, Latin Quarter, Pont Neuf, Place de la Concorde, View of the Opéra Garnier, The Louvre, Palais Royal, Musée d'Orsay, Ile-de-la-Cité, View of Les Invalides, and finished with views of Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysées, & Arc de Triomphe. Our group was very large so we were spilit in two groups of 20 people each. Our guide Sandra, was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was a tip based tour so it was left up to the individual as to how much we chose to tip. I tipped 10 Euro. Info here: http://www.newparistours.com/daily-tours/paris-free-tour.html

Sandeman Tours - reservations needed?

Four of us are traveling to Paris in early June. We are planning to take the Latin Quarter Tour or the Free Paris Tour (it will depend on the time spent at other locations that day). We'd like to play it by ear (to allow for flexibility at other sights), but I'm wondering if it would be better to get reservations. Is it necessary? Are these tours booked up, generally?

I took this tour in February. The reason they ask you to book in advance is to make sure there are enough guides that day for the number of people; otherwise you would be turned away. Too many unreserved people turned up for a similar free tour in Amsterdam the following week when I was there, and they couldn't do the tour as there were not enough guides. The Paris tour was fine, but the guide asked for money every 10 minutes. Paris Walks has better tours.

S Jackson, any particular Paris Walks tour you could recommend? We will be there on Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Thanks!

Hi: I don't remember which days I did which tours with Paris Walks, but I did the one around Montmartre, which was so good I went back two days later and did it again with a friend, following the same route by ourselves. This last trip I did the Latin Quarter tour, also excellent. The guides are so knowledgeable, and also in London too with the same company. You don't have to reserve with Paris Walks, just show up.

    05/09/22 08:05 AM 3 posts I have done Sandemans free walking tours in a bunch of cities (Munich, Amsterdam, Lisbon, Barcelona, Paris) and have always enjoyed them. Paris was good, but towards the lower end simply because the tour was so crowded, so it's possible a paid company with a smaller group might offer something better.
