Paris: 2-Hour Passages Private City Tour in German

2. Paris: 2-Hour Passages Private City Tour in German

The hidden passages is not a term for many Parisian visitors, as they are usually discovered by chance, as their name suggests, a bit hidden and cannot be found right away. The Parisian passages will take you back to the early 19th century, when Paris was not as modern as the city it is known as today. Paris was a dirty city at the time and lived up to its filthy image. The Parisian passages were not shopping arcades as they are known today, but at the time, an answer to the prevailing circumstances. You could call them the forerunners of the 'grand magasin.' Why you'll be enchanted, feel relegated to another time and why the passages have only been in vogue for a short time will be revealed to you on this extraordinary private city tour.

Paris: Covered Passages Walking Tour

3. Paris: Covered Passages Walking Tour

Explore Paris’s covered passages: half-hidden covered streets filled with shopping and culinary treasures. Take a dazzling guided tour through 5 of Paris’ magical arcades, some of them dating back to the 1700s, and learn their secrets, history, and the best places to shop and dine. Begin at the Galerie Vivienne, a neoclassical-style covered passage dating to 1823, now a national monument filled with luxury boutiques. After the Galerie Vivienne, explore the Passage Choiseul, where over 600 feet of sunlit shops gather under the stunning glass roof. Be sure to look at the beautiful, ornately tiled floor. Continue the tour at the Passage des Panoramas, Paris' first covered walkway, built more than 200 years ago. Admire its old-fashioned charm and ancient architecture. Your guide will point out the best artisanal shops and eateries as you stroll along the scenic passage. Next, the Passage Jouffroy presents a narrow frame for shoppers to navigate, accented everywhere with glass and iron. It even houses a small wax museum that your guide will show you. At each of these stops your guide will direct your attention to details you might otherwise miss, fascinating pieces of history, and the story behind how these many covered passages in Paris found their way to the capital of fashion. The tour ends at the Passage Verdeau, where antique dealers and vintage curiosities crowd the walkway.

Very nice to discover new places while cycling through Paris. Pierre, our guide, told with full dedication about the secrets that Paris knows. He was funny and made history hip again! Easy to understand during the English tour which was very nice.

Very pleasant course. several stops at historic sites and the guide who tells us nice anecdotes that transport us to the past. The guide Fabien very pleasant to listen to and friendly! a bike ride is better than walking and avoiding the crowds.

This was a great tour! My tour guide, Vlad, was very informative and I learned so many thinks that I did not know before! The highlight was visiting Procope, the oldest coffeeshoppe/restaurant in Paris!
