The story behind the Eiffel Tower’s rocky past, the universal symbol of love and architectural genius

Join us on this fascinating walk from the Trocadero to the Eiffel Tower. As we meander along the backstreets of this beautiful neighbourhood, we’ll unveil a more intimate angle of the Eiffel Tower - exploring its rocky past, its architectural genius and discover why it has become a universal symbol of love and romance. You’ll join Alice, a local historian, and James, a journalist living in Paris, as we trace the neighbourhood’s past. We’ll learn about Paris’ relationship with the World Fairs and the reason why the Tower was built in the first place. We’ll uncover some amazing views of the Tower and its surrounding buildings, learn about Gustave Eiffel and some amazing stories that have happened in the 135 years since the Tower’s construction. 

Sainte-Chapelle & Ile de la Cité: A medieval marvel & a place of power

Uncover this lesser-known Parisian gem - in our opinion the most breathtaking site in all of Paris. Marvel at the world’s finest collection of stained glass and discover relics of Christianity. We’ll also trace the area’s history as we leave the chapel and discover the surrounding Palais de la Cité - the main residence of the French Kings from the 6th to the 14th century.

On this breathtaking tour, you’ll join Ed, our resident historian, and Kristen, a local journalist. We’ll not only wander through the Gothic Sainte Chapelle, but we’ll explore the wider significance of this area, which has been at the centre of Parisian power for the past 1700 years. 

Louvre Palace and The Tuileries Gardens: Royalty and Revolution Self-Guided Audio Walking Tour

Join us on this walkthrough of French Royalty & Revolutions as we explore the Louvre Palace and Tuileries Gardens. We explore the rise & fall of the French monarchy, trace the history & evolution of the Louvre Palace, and understand the artistic heritage that has always existed at the Louvre. We join Ed, a local historian, and Kristen, a Parisian journalist, on this fascinating walk through time. We’ll deep dive into the Louvre’s architecture, point out some famous artwork that’s scattered throughout the Louvre & its gardens, and learn more about some of France’s most famous heads of state - from Louis to Napoleon!

The famous graves of the Père Lachaise: An interactive audio walking tour

Were cemeteries built for the living, or for the dead? This is what we’ll explore during this fascinating tour of Père Lachaise cemetery, which mixes music, stories and poetry. Come along and enjoy a peaceful walk through the world's most famous cemetery! Founded by Emperor Napoleon, this cemetery resembles a miniature Paris and is now home to over 1 million “residents”. We’ll discover the graves and stories of famous people such as Edith Piaf and her tale of love and loss, the tragic fable of Oscar Wilde, the bittersweet love story of Heloise and Abelard and we’ll see how the rock n roll poet Jim Morrison remains as unconventional in death as he did in life! On this fascinating tour, you’ll join our resident historian, Colm, and Kristen, a local journalist. Whilst most people who visit the Père Lachaise pay their respects to the cemetery’s A-listers, we’ll also take you beyond the tourist favourites and explore all aspects that make this cemetery so incredible.

About operator:

Too many people visit places without discovering anything about them. And we can’t let that happen.

We believe that the true essence of travelling lies in the joy of discovering the authentic face of cities, neighbourhood and cultural sites, and unlocking the many tales they hold.

With that spirit in our hearts, we started out in search of these stories hidden in the nooks and corners of Paris, London, Cambridge and Oxford's most iconic spots. We then dived into each place’s culture, history, and traditions by collaborating with historians, famous architects, photographers, street artists, and many more. What we ended up finding was a treasure trove of stories that we have meticulously tied together just for you!

But how to deliver this information? We didn’t want to create another Wikipedia, with people looking at their phones instead of the sites. And let’s face it, audioguides and headsets belong to the 20th century.. This is why we’ve created our own storytelling format. Podcast-style tours, enriched with photos and videos, that keep you wanting more.

Our goal is to create a form of travel that will make you truly discover the places you visit.
