Explore historical Paris with these 4 immersive audio guides of the Notre Dame, Sainte Chapelle, the Louvre and an Instagram walk in the heart of Paris. 

Join us on this walkthrough 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.

Explore Notre Dame’s beautiful facade as we trace the Ile de la Cité’s rich history and understand the spiritual and scientific relevance of Paris’ Point Zero. Take a closer look at the statues, murals and paintings and begin to understand the legends behind them. 

Join local historians as we observe architectural choices and small details on the cathedral. Observe the depictions on the central doorway which tell the story of the last judgement and hear the sad tale behind Notre Dame’s row of 28 statues? Wander down the central aisle as we soak in the grandeur of Notre Dame’s architecture and look up at the Rose Windows and understand the symbolisms they hold.

Then uncover the lesser-known Parisian gem, Sainte Chapelle. 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.

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.

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.
