About the tour

Walk with us on the most famous avenue in the world and enjoy discovering one of the most famous monuments of Paris: the Arc de Triomphe! Landscaped by Le Nôtre in the 17th century, the avenue of the Champs Elysées is divided into a lower part next to Place de la Concorde and the Grand Palais and an upper part with luxury shops, restaurants and cinemas where Parisians and visitors love to stroll. The location of the final stage of the Tour de France and military parades, the avenue offers a great walk along the what is know as the "Axe historique", a long stretch of famous monuments in Paris. At the end of the avenue, the majestic Arc de Triomphe celebrates the soldiers of the French Revolution and of Napoleon with beautiful statues and bas-reliefs and also hosts the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. A great tour to experience the French art de vivre (art of living) and learn about this area's rich history!


Meet your local guide

Florent

It's an understatement to say Florent knows Paris. Born in this wonderful city, Florent says he confidently knows every nook and cranny. Having completed over 2000 tours, we believe him. He's a self-declared history, art, and archaeology fan. What he loves most is sharing the best parts (and secrets) of Paris with you! “In French, if you add two letters to Paris, it becomes Paradis (Paradise in English)” he laughs. And paradise, it truly is. Be it exploring Paris' gastronomical delights or catching an auction, walking along the River Seine (which Florent gallantly swam), exploring spots where Hemingway lived or its sprawling gardens, Florent takes you on an exciting tour through his favorite city. “I love sharing my discoveries, explaining the boisterous history of Paris and showing places that are very hard to find otherwise, and of course getting to know new people every day!” Florent says.

Florent has been guiding since Aug 2010

Flo is an excellent guide! He knows his history and provides so much information throughout the entire tour. He provides good photography angles and is passionate about helping the tourists get good postcards. I have gone on several tours with Flo and cannot wait to go on more, maybe even in person someday!
