The city of Paris was born thanks to the river Seine. Not only did it serve as a vital source of water, it acted as the main means of transportation to effect trade with other cities and it offered a natural layer of protection against warring factions. It was only natural that many important monuments were built next to the river. The Cathedral of Notre-Dame, city hall and of course the Louvre, to name but a few. Of course a majestic river would be incomplete without some equally elegant bridges such as Pont Neuf, which is the oldest standing bridge across the Seine. Luckily we'll be able to pass all of these sites as we explore what the river means to Parisians as we join them to stroll along the river.
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.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Paris with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Paris. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.

Florent is the consummate professional guide. Today's tour was postponed due to unsafe weather in Paris. He doesn't control the weather! I love all the tours I've taken with Flo and will be rebooking this one in the future. Thanks for being there for us today!

I'm sure it would have been lovely but the weather was atrocious and he couldn't continue. He stood in the thunder and rain to let us know and gave us a lovely view of Notre Dame. He will reschedule as soon as he can. He has never cancelled before but it was impossible to continue we could see. People were huddled under the awnings. All Florent's tours deserve five stars. Looking forward to the tour in better weather. Thanks for being there to let us know Florent :)
