Award-winning travel author Heather Stimmler-Hall offers fully customized, private walking tours of Paris and the French countryside. See the hidden corners of the City of Light, learn about its fascinating history, and find the best addresses for dining, shopping and entertainment. We also do running tours! Please note that we ONLY do "Secrets of Paris" tours: in-depth, meaningful, memorable. We do NOT do "Highlights of Paris" tours that try and cram in a bunch of museums and monuments in one day. We leave that to the other tour operators.

I love TripAdvisor, but I cannot understand how Heather ranks only 123rd among the 400+ Paris tour companies. She is so amazing! We are fortunate to be living in Europe for a few years, so we have the opportunity to visit Paris on a regular...More
