Meet your local guide at Trocadero, which offers one of the most iconic views of the Eiffel Tower. There you’ll hear about its rich history, from the sabotage that stopped Hitler from climbing to the top, to the memorable jump of a parachute pioneer.
From there you’ll step back from the crowds to enter a peaceful Parisian cemetery. You’ll hear about some of the famous people buried there while glancing at the Eiffel Tower between the cathedral-like graves.
You’ll then move on through one of Paris’ cutest and most hidden gardens before getting more amazing views of the tower that only locals know about.
The experience continues with a visit of the charming Passy area that few tourists ever see. You’ll stroll through some gorgeous pedestrian streets and see the local market filled with delicious local products. You’ll also stop in a bakery to taste a decadently buttery pastry.
Following your pastry stop, you’ll head past the former house of Balzac (one of France’s most famous writers) nestled in a lovely lane, which looks as if it’s being taken from a countryside village far from the heart of Paris!
After a stroll through another park, you’ll enter a former 15th century monastery cellar now converted into a museum. There you’ll hear about the history of vineyards in Paris, while sipping a glass of wine.
Finally, you’ll head onto an iconic bridge where your experience will end with one last stunning view of the Eiffel Tower for a final photo opportunity! Before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for tips
